Local Author Fair

Exciting announcement #2: I’ve been accepted to be part of the Local Author Fair hosted by my library!

This will be in a couple of weeks (eep), and I’m working hard to get everything ready in time. I’m looking forward to meeting some other authors in my area too! Might even sell a couple of books while I’m at it. 🙂

Those are the exciting updates for now, but I hope to have more in the near future.

Update: The Witch

Progress on this short story prequel to The Wizard of Suomen: my cover designer has begun work on the cover, and I have gotten feedback from my beta readers and my editor, so I can get to work on the next round of editing. A few steps closer!

I can’t give it a specific release date just yet, but I’m hoping it will be soon.

Minnesota Book Awards

Exciting announcement #1: The Wizard of Suomen is officially nominated for a Minnesota Book Award!

The initial round of judging happens over the winter, and four books from each category are announced at the end of January (“genre fiction” for me). I have my fingers crossed that TWoS will at least make it that far! Winners for each category are announced in April.

I probably won’t have many updates about this until January, but will be sure to post anything that comes up. 😀

I’m extremely sad to learn that Victor Milán passed away earlier this year. I was deeply enjoying his latest series, The Dinosaur Lords, and it’s heartbreaking to know that he had planned at least three more novels, as well as short stories/novellas/etc. in that universe, but didn’t get the chance to finish them. Cancer sucks. If you are a dinosaur and fantasy fan and haven’t read the existing three books yet, do it anyway – they are worth it.

RIP, Mr. Milán, and I wish you a dinosaur-filled Paradise.

In honor of print copies being available…

…it makes sense to run a sale on the ebook, right? XD

Countdown Deal on The Wizard of Suomen starting today at $0.99. Or, if you prefer to read a physical book, those are $12.99.

I hope you enjoy it!
