“Spring has something of mine; he knows what it is.” She smiled coldly. “I need you to bring it to me.”
“And why would I do that?” Story folded her arms over her chest.
A branch from the sidhe’s hair glided out in front of her, bearing a single, small acorn. “Because I poisoned Eírnin.”
One of the tattoos on her shoulder coalesced into a live oak leaf, and she plucked it before standing up and holding it out toward Story. “And if you want the antidote, you will bring me what I seek.”
Story lunged for the leaf, but the Autumn Princess was too quick and crushed it in her hand. “You have until winter’s first frost reaches him. Then, he dies.”
Without waiting for a response, Metirreonn disappeared in a scattering of red-gold leaves and sparks.
Six months after arriving in the world of Ailionora, Story finds herself once again on a quest; only this time it is not to save a dying race but the life of the elf she loves. Along the way, she must face the consequences of her previous choices and battle with enemies both old and new while she races against time.
“Engagingly demonstrates that readers of all ages can get drawn into a world of magic and adventure.” — Karen Lyon, The Hill Rag

Last but not least, I had the pleasure of writing a guest post for the talented Stuart Jaffe! You can see it here where I discuss what my musical inspirations for writing have been: http://www.stuartjaffe.com/blog/2012/06/guest-post-janine-k-spendlove/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=guest-post-janine-k-spendlove
Yes I know my book’s been out since June, but I decided to join the cool kids club & do a book trailer for The Human.
So, I contacted one of my fav bands The Steelwells and got the commercial license for one of their songs (Our Fabled Little Rabbits) & spoke to a friend of mine (Mary Moline) about putting the vid together.
I wanted something simple, mostly text and my book cover and Mary understood perfectly.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy! And yes, feel free to repost/share if you’d like.
Not gonna lie, things have been very stressful (I’m sure my editor would agree), but in a good way, because LOOK:
I’m VERY excited about my book! I’m less excited about my new haircut. Bleh. At anyrate, hopefully War of the Seasons, Book One: The Human will be available for purchase in a week or so. *fingers crossed*
It’ll be available for purchase on Nook, Kindle, iBook… you name it! And of course, you can still go the old school ACTUAL PHYSICAL BOOK route.
Keep an eye out – a free preview download of the first two chapters should be available in the next couple days…
Now, onto other news, I HAVE A SONG! I’ve noticed (and had pointed out to me by several friends) that the growing trend is to have a promo vid for your book. So my ever talented webmaster, Rich, is creating one for me.
The thing is, you can’t just go using people’s music willie nillie for commercial purposes without licensing it, so I contacted one of my favorite bands, The Steelwells to work out me possibly licensing one of their songs for my promo vid. They were, thankfully, on board, and so now, I HAVE A SONG!
They have many wonderful songs, but the one I felt fit best with the tone of my book was “Our Fabled Little Rabbits.” So here you have their fun & quirky music vid – I’ll obviously post my promo vid once it’s complete.
You should really check out The Steelwells’ album “Shallow On the Draft,” if you haven’t yet. It’s a bargin on iTunes, and you can also get it on Amazon.com (I’m sure you can get it elsewhere too, but those are the places I know of). If you need a “gateway song,” check out “El Capitan” by them. Love it!
