I just wrote the climax to book 3 in the War of the Seasons series and I find I am both relieved and extremely sad.
Like I want to cry.
I don’t know if I can fully explain this properly.
I know many of you were expecting the 3rd War of the Seasons book to come out this June, given that the first two books had June releases. Unfortunately my schedule has not allowed for such an aggresive publishing schedule (one full novel a year may not be aggressive for some, but most definitely is for me).
Never fear, I am writing War of the Seasons, book 3: The Hunter as fast as I can, and anticipate a December 21st, 2013 publication date (those of you following the series will know why this date is significant).
That said, if you need your War of the seasons fix, I have a series of short stories (3 now) that take place in the War of the Seasons universe, with the third one, The World Spins Madly on (or as I like to call it, “Josh’s story”) out today.
Surprise! I’m not dead. At least not at the moment, though not for lack of trying on a certain sadistic faerie prince’s part. But I digress – yes, I survived the fall, & injury free at that. I’m sorry for waiting so long to tell you, but believe me when I say this was literally the first chance I had to do so.
I know even if I tell you not to that you’ll still worry about me, so I won’t bother. That said, please know that as of this writing I’m alive & well, & more importantly, happier than I’ve been in a very long time. I promise I’ll tell you all about it when I get back – it’s a pretty crazy story for sure.
Also, you’d better believe that as soon as I get back I’ll race you to the pond!
Songs of the Seasons, Song Three: The World Spins Madly On
This is the third short story from the War of the Seasons world, written to give fans some insight to what happens to Josh after Story falls into the cave during War of the Seasons: The Human.
And if you haven’t had a chance to read the first two Songs of the Seasons, here they are:
What must she think of me? Coming back here to her island instead of his own family’s, especially after all this time away.
He rested his hand on the highly polished brass doorknob—a luxury in their metal deprived world—and took a deep breath.
He opened the door, and there she stood, nearly as tall as he, but vastly more elegant and beautiful. He knew in that moment that she still firmly possessed his heart.
Two lovers separated for a hundred years by their own selfish behavior. After all this time, can the queen and the minstrel make amends and reunite, or will their elvish pride keep them apart forever?
Songs of the Seasons, Song Two: White Flag
This is the second short story from the War of the Seasons world, written to give fans some back-story to two characters from War of the Seasons: The Human.
Milt knew better than to go spelunking alone in his favorite caving system. If anything happened to him, like falling down a deep shaft and breaking his leg, he’d probably die before anyone found him, and that suited him just fine. He expected to be thrilled, and he expected to have a great time. What he didn’t expect was to encounter a naked, half-drowned, red-headed woman making her way up to the main cavern entrance.
Songs of the Seasons, Song One: Girl
For those of you who need to read something from the War of the Seasons world to hold you over until The Hunter comes out in June 2012, this is just for you.
A few weeks ago Tera Fulbright tagged me on her blog as part of a chain of authors (or creative people) recommendations called THE NEXT BIG THING. Given that I’ve been away on travel a lot & I found a free minute today, it’s my turn to reciprocate and to pass on the torch. I’m going to answer questions about my new project War of the Seasons, book 3: The Hunter. Then I’m going to tag five wonderful authors who will tell you about their Next Big Thing on… whenever they get a chance.
