 RevengeThe Legacy of Ilvania continues with the release of REVENGE!

* * *

Juriel’s struggle to save the people of Ilvania continues in this gripping fourth installment of The Legacy of Ilvania!

Completely lost after Jae’s death, Juriel is thrown into his role as healer. She is now the one everyone depends on to control the epidemic sweeping through Ilvania. Without Jae, her efforts are futile. Fueled by her brother’s magic, the disease continues to rage on with greater fervor.

But the epidemic isn’t her only battle. Following the disappearance of one of her fellow healers, Juriel discovers that her family will stop at nothing to see her dead. Beaten and near death, she finds the courage that haunted her in its absence.

The time for revenge has come.

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?

Will Jae ever be free, or will he end up a helpless pawn neither living nor dead?

“Familiar themes of O’Connor’s within the story also are presented, dealing with equality, human rights, and feelings of self worth. All in all, a great read, highly recommended, and a great way to get into what Andi O’Connor has to offer!” -Ed (Goodreads)

We Want More!

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

For all of you who are fans of The Lost Heir, and are waiting with baited breath for the 2nd book, I am putting the finishing touches on Awakening and will start the first round of edits this week! Be sure to keep posted for updates, contests, and sneak peeks!

On a side note, Redemption got its first review yesterday, and it was a 5-star rating! It really is a lovely, touching review and it was wonderful to know that a reader could experience so much emotion in a short story (especially one that I wrote!) It was also most touching to read in the review that he is a loyal fan and has read both The Lost Heir and Silevethiel. Knowing that I am beginning to build a fan base is incredible and something I had only dreamed of not too long ago. Thank you, Ed, for reading and enjoying my work, and thank you to all of you who have (or will) pick up one of my books. You are why I sit down in front of my notebook every day and write. You are why I strive to put out the best writing I can so you may have the most thrilling adventure possible. You are what keeps me motivated to keep trying when the words won’t come. Thank you.

Sláinte!

“All in all, a great read, highly recommended, and a great way to get into what Andi O’Connor has to offer :-)” -Ed (Amazon Reviewer)

Dueling Styles

A Game of ThronesSilevethiel 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!

Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2013!

Best of 2013After keeping it a secret for weeks, I’m happy to finally be able to announce that Silevethiel was named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2013! I’ve known for over a month and still can’t quite believe it received such a wonderful honor. To see my name in the same category as such brilliant and accomplished authors as Susan Wittig Albert is truly amazing. If you had asked me a year ago if any of my work would ever receive such praise, I would have told you ‘no’. In fact, if you asked me now, I would probably still say ‘no’. For being a new, independent author with only two books to my name, it is difficult to think my work can be viewed as being of the same quality as so many seasoned writers. I can only hope that I will constantly learn and grow as both a writer and publisher, and produce books that continue to affect readers in such powerful ways. For now though, I am simply going to take the last few weeks of 2013 to enjoy this extraordinary honor and be proud of all I’ve already achieved.
