For you see, after arriving at FantaCon28, after being mistaken for a cosplay of myself, after literally meeting my maker and telling my untold tale, after the Artist’s Alley and the woman who mistook costumes for consent, your Da could not help but be intensely interested in fan culture.

You shall grow up a geek, sweeting, and for that I am pleased, but you must understand that there is nothing, absolutely nothing like this back in the Kingdom of Hain.

Well, there is the Sowing Celebration, but that’s more about inversion, and celebration, and pushing Brother Sun back into orbit by tempting Sister Moon into sleeping later and later in the bed of Harvest than it is about actually pretending to be the Great Constellations. And besides, that really is more of a Fey holiday than a human one.

The point is, my  sweeting, that for all that meeting Elgar Reed left a faintly bitter taste behind my teeth, I adored the rest of my weekend in Toronto. The crowds were overwhelming, true; I needed to retreat to a rest area often. Your mother calls it social anxiety, dearest, and we both hope that you do not inherit that particular Turnish trait. I had never felt so observed before in my life. Your Da is very used to being either masked and Shadow-Cloaked or totally ignored. But beyond the discomfort of being in such a large crowd, I had . . . well, I had rather a lot of fun, didn’t I?

Will There Be an Audiobook for “The Untold Tale”?

A few people have asked whether there will be an audio-book version of “The Untold Tale”.

The short version is: “No.”

The long version is this:

My publisher is small and independent. They don’t have the means or the capitol to produce an audio book. However, I still control the rights to an audiobook, which means it’s possible that there will be one in the future.

And that depends on readership demand.

So, what can you do to help “The Untold Tale” get an audio version?

Well, the best way to do that is to get Audible’s attention.

First, buy the book. Especially pre-order the book via Amazon or buy it on released day on December 8th. If everyone buys the book on day #1, the book will shoot up the charts on Amazon, which is affiliated with Audible.

Secondly, review the book on GoodReads and Amazon. And ask everyone you know who reads the book to review it as well. It can be as simple as clicking on the stars, or a long, thoughtful review that’s a thousand words. Most reviews are about a paragraph, or the size of your standard Facebook update.

Thirdly, email Audible ( greatideas@audible.com) and let them know that you want one! (And, ahem, feel free to  suggest some  narrators  for it ). ^_^

In the meantime, enjoy the free audiobook of The Dark Lord and The Seamstress, the only book I have in audio currently.

And hopefully I’ll be announcing an audiobook deal sooner rather than later!

Book One of the Accidental Turn series

This is a free preview of the novel.  I’ll be posting one chapter every Tuesday until the book is released on December 8th, 2015

*

THE UNTOLD TALE follows Pip, who is pulled against her will into the epic fantasy novel series she’s loved since she was a teenager. However, the world is darker, and far more dangerous than she could have ever predicted, especially when it turns out the hero is a much bigger misogynistic ass than she knew. Pip knows how to circumnavigate the Hero’s Journey and the pitfalls and loopholes of this particular world – but what will happen to her beloved characters outside of the comfort of the fantasy they were written for? And what happens when it’s not the hero, but the hero’s overlooked and bullied little brother who proves to be her biggest champion?
