Upcoming Release: The Speaker

We have some good and bad news to share with you all.

The GOOD news is that we have an upcoming release of the 2nd book in Andi O’Connor’s YA fantasy series The Vaelinel Trilogy. YAY! *does a happy dance*

The BAD news is that due to issues with the formatter, it still hasn’t gone to print and we don’t have an official release date. 😦

But…we do have some more GOOD news and can share the ebook cover! What do you think? Does it whet your appetite?

 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.

Happy Release Day!

Retribution - Ebook SmallRetribution is now available! In celebration, how about a little teaser! This is from the opening scene. Enjoy!


“Again!”

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.

Coven Update and Exciting News!

Hello everyone!

I know you all are probably anxious to hear the update about Coven, but first I want to share with you some exciting news! Purple Sun Press now has a Marketing Director! I’m happy to announce that Martin Rosales has joined our team and will be helping with creating promotional material, organizing contests, and coordinating future events. If you have any questions, comments, or ideas feel free to email him at mrosales@purplesunpress.com! Welcome aboard Martin!

Now, for the update about Coven. I have been going back and forth with the person doing the interior formatting for quite some time. I want the feel of the cover to continue through to the interior of the print book, and it has yet to be achieved. We are working to make sure the version printed represents the vision brought forth by myself as well as the talented authors and cover designer. I am hoping to stay on schedule for the release date of September 29th, but depending on how things go with the formatting, we may release the eBook at that time and push the print release back a few weeks. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I know that Coven will be something we will all be proud of 🙂

Speaking of the eBook! Coven is available for pre-order for Kindle, Nook, and Kobo! Pre-order your copy today and spread the word!

Editing Finished!

IMG_1132Well, here it is! The final story for Coven finished edited and ready to be added to the pile for formatting! So far we’re staying on schedule and looking toward a tentative release date of August 2015!

That being said, we’d love your input on the interior font! Would you like to see a different font chosen to fit each story or a single font all the way through? Vote below!

Coven

coven

noun 

1. a meeting of witches
2. a company of 13 witches
3. an anthology of fantasy stories from gifted authors all over the world published by Purple Sun Press
Word Origin
C16: probably from Old French covin group, ultimately from Latinconvenīre to come together; compare convent
(if you couldn’t guess, #3 isn’t an ‘official’ definition, but it’s our favorite!)


So why was the word Coven chosen for the title of our first anthology? In the most basic definition of the word (ignoring the witches, of course) it is a meeting, a gathering. And so is our anthology. But instead of witches coming together, we have a group of seventeen talented fantasy authors. Yet, in a way, they are witches. Not in the ‘dropping a bat’s wing into a boiling cauldron’ sense. (Though…maybe…I don’t really know.) But they’re witches in their own unique special way. They’re wielding their own magic with each and every word they put down on a page. They’re crafting a wondrous story out of nothing but their creativity and imaginations. They’re introducing us to new people and worlds and making us wish it wasn’t fantasy – that it was real.


What do you think of the title? Do you have any ideas for what would make a great cover? Let us know!

Reclamation – FREE

A month after Jae proved everything the Mé’Draak believed about their magic to be wrong, he’s finally beginning to settle into his demanding new role as Healer. But he quickly discovers that everything comes at a price – even good deeds. Will he have the strength to protect a little girl crucial to the future of the world, or will Ilvania fall into shadow?

“A bitter wind whipped across the graveyard. It penetrated Jae’s linen uniform, seeping through to his bones. But he didn’t care. Whatever discomfort he experienced paled in comparison to what Analla had endured.”
