Retribution is now available! In celebration, how about a little teaser! This is from the opening scene. Enjoy!
Juriel obeyed. Purple lightning burst from the palms of her hands and bounced harmlessly off of Jae’s shield. Sparks illuminated the tiny room already heavy with the burnt metallic scent of magic.
Jae slithered to his left. Juriel followed his movements, trying to anticipate his next action. His green eyes bore into her, not betraying even the slightest hint of his intentions.
“Again!” Jae barely finished the command when the deep purple lightning once again slammed against his defenses. Unlike Juriel’s previous attempts, the last attack caused his outer shields to quiver. Her magic was more focused. Instead of allowing the bolts to hit him at various points, some missing the mark all together, she’d concentrated her power. All four bolts hit his defenses within a foot’s radius. Jae smiled inwardly. She was getting stronger.
Moving to his right, Jae returned to his previous position. Without warning, he let out his own attack. Blue fire erupted from his hands. Juriel gasped, recoiling when it slammed against her shields. But then it was Jae’s turn to be surprised. It bounced off Juriel’s defenses and shot back towards his own, hitting them with surprising force. The impact caused him to stagger backward, almost knocking him to the ground.
The fire died and the room filled with smoke. When the air cleared enough to see, Juriel’s reaction wasn’t at all what Jae expected She’d collapsed to her knees, tears streaming down her cheeks.

Setting up at the Rosemont College Book Festival yesterday! It was a bit chilly, but otherwise a great day! I enjoyed meeting some new fans and answering questions about my writing! I’ll post a video of me reading from Redemption soon!
Happy Monday, everyone! Redemption has been getting some awesome ratings and reviews! It recently receive 8 reviews from Indie Book Reviews, 6 were 5-star and 2 were 4-star! The only complaint was that it was so good they wanted more! It is a short story (only 18 pages on Kindle) but it’s packed with empathy, backstory, and action. For just $0.99 on Amazon, it’s a great way to introduce yourself to my writing and is an awesome option for those of you who don’t have a lot of free time! And, for all those who want more of Jae and the Mé’Draak, another short story is in the works! The 2nd story in The Legacy of Ilvania, I hope to have it published in June!
“To make us as the readers connect to a character so that we care is hard to do, yet Andi O’Connor does it perfectly.” -Karen Indie Book Reviews

~Please, let me die first.
Huddled in the shadows, Jae watches while one of the Mé’Draak brands his cellmate as a slave before viciously dragging him from the room. Feeling the weight of the metal collar around his neck, Jae is left alone to contemplate his own fate. Will the afternoon session finally Break him? Will it kill him? Or will he end up like the boy, a helpless pawn neither living nor dead?
(Looking for the ePub version for Nook, Kobo, Smashwords, etc? Don’t worry, it’s on it’s way! In the meantime listen to Andi read an excerpt from Redemption in the Readings & Refreshments section on her Website or check out some of her other Books!)

Silevethiel has been out for two weeks now, and it’s already received some great feedback and reviews. A few reviewers have commented that the battle scenes in Silevethiel remind them of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series. I’ve never read any of his books – shocking, I know – but from what I’ve heard about his writing style, I was rather surprised by the comparison.
Have you had the opportunity to read both? Do you see a similarity? I’d be interested to hear your thoughts!
