Once again, I’ve fallen behind posting on here… So, since there’s a bunch of stuff going on, I’m going to put it all here at once and hope I won’t forget anything. 😉 Alright, ready for the whirlwind? Hold onto your hats!
First, Shrouded Hope is out in the world! The sixth and second to last Agonizomai Book is available on Amazon, and I’m so excited to have you all read it! This book is getting to the very heart to the series, and it brings all our beloved characters together. (Most of them…Iyanka and Victorin have to stay in Elnar, at least for now.) If you haven’t already, you can buy Shrouded Hope HERE.
Second, I’m hoping to release the FINAL book of the Agonizomai Series in January or February of 2023. I’m already around a quarter of the way through the rough draft, and I’m loving it. I’m also pretty sure it’ll be the longest book I’ve written, by the time I’m finished. So many things need to happen, friends…so many things. I don’t have the pre-order up yet (I may or may not still need to paint the cover…), but we’re getting there! I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that this series will be finished in only a few months…
And that brings me to my third bit of big news: Stone Heart. I revealed the new cover on my Instagram last Friday, and oh my goodness I’m in love. My new friends at MoorBooks Design did such an amazing job of capturing Ember and Dyre…it’s better than I ever could’ve imagined.
In addition to an amazing new cover, I have another piece of Stone Heart news: you can now preorder the second edition! (Click here to check it out) It’s launching on December 16th, which just so happens to be my birthday. I’m already planning lots of ways to celebrate leading up to the launch.
Read below for Stone Heart’s new blurb!
A woman of secrets. A lord of living stone. Which will break first, the curse…or their hearts?
Ember is used to living on the fringes. When her family chooses her as the sacrifice to serve out their debts, Ember doesn’t expect her life to change that much. She’ll clean where she’s ordered, keep her head down, and survive another day. Life as usual…except Ember doesn’t need a storybook to tell her this castle is cursed. Even more troubling, the lord of the castle isn’t nearly as monstrous as appearances suggest. But Ember has a reason for keeping to the fringes, and failure could cost Ember her life.
Dyrerisan has spent well over a lifetime wandering the dark halls of his castle, alone in his thoughts. He has his own reasons for demanding a servant from Ember’s family, but a desire for companionship wasn’t one of them. But when Ember arrives on his steps, fearless and vibrant, he begins to wonder… Perhaps a life spent in isolation isn’t much of a life at all. But more than his own heart is at risk if he lets Ember in.
Dyrerisan and Ember have both learned to keep their secrets close, and their hearts closed. But hearts of stone can still shatter. A curse is at work within the halls of the castle, and it won’t stop until it claims the life it was promised. Will they choose to fight the curse alone, or standing side by side? And just what is at stake if they fail?
Alright, I think I covered all the things. Keep a look out for more news ahead! It’s going to be a wild, wonderous few months.
