THE TIME HAS FINALLY COME, COURTESANS AND GENTLEFOPS!
The second novella in The Tale of El’Anret series, Jack of Diamonds, is now available for pre-order, and will release January 27th, 2017!
WOOHOOs ARE IN ORDER.
This novella gave me such a hard time. Rather, the circumstances surrounding it did; lost the file itself when my main PC died, found a really OLD FILE in my e-mail, worked on it on Le Hub’s laptop in WORDPAD because we had to format the laptop and I lost my Microsoft Word install, then even though it was finished, I had no way to prep the formatting.
AhhhhhhahahaHAHAHAHAHAHahaaaaaaaaa. Universe, you’re killing me, smalls.
But! I was trying not to get further behind, so I snatched up Apache’s OpenOffice, and I’ve got to say, I was not disappointed. Some things were more tedious than in Word, but I still got the formatting done in a short time, and I was pleased with the results.
So here we are. Oh! Want a blurb?
The world of El’Anret has been quieter since Hazel Leigh Mac Tíre became the Faerie’s new Queen of Diamonds. With her son, Jack, in tow, she leads the land with a calm and careful diplomacy.
That is, until an unseen force shakes the very foundation of the land.
At Midsummer, a new Queen is set to be Marked. A Faeborn girl comes forth, blazing diamonds marking her arms, and what should be a day of celebration turns the entire world of El’Anret against their mortal queen. No sooner than her diamonds appear, the girl is kidnapped, and a single clue is left in her wake: a missive, written in blood.
ALL HAIL QUEEN MAC TIRE. ONE TRUE QUEEN.
Time is not the only enemy Leigh faces as she seeks to rescue the girl and set things right. The entirety of El’Anret hunts her and her family, believing that she intends to keep the throne from the rightful heir. In the midst of chaos, Jack disappears, becoming a fabled creature all his own.
A storm is brewing— one that no one, human or Fae, might survive.
