So, my novella, THE DRAGONS OF SUMMER, which first appeared (and still appears) in the SEASONS OF SORCERY anthology is a finalist in the RITA® Awards! The amazing Ravven had only just completed the cover – and we’d been planning to release the standalone story in April – but we seized the opportunity to put that shiny silver Finalist medallion on the cover and we’ll be releasing the stand alone story any minute now. I’m even doing a print edition for you paper purists.
Since our topic at the SFF Seven this week is the open “On My Mind,” I feel like I should say, also, that I share the concern about the RITA Awards recognizing diverse authors. Come on over for more of my take.
Thus concludes a story I began on February 12, 2016. Just a little over three years to finish this saga. It feels good to wind this one up. Break out the bubbly!
A Looming Threat
The sorceress Oria has finally come into her own—able to wield the power of her birthright and secure in the marriage she once believed would bring her only misery. But the past she escaped still chases her, and the certainty of war promises to destroy everything she’s fought to have.
An Impossible War
Once before Lonen led an army in a desperate attempt to stop the powerfully murderous sorcerers of Bára—and he nearly lost everything. Now he must return to the battlefield that took the lives of so many of his people. Only this time he has more to risk than ever.
The Final Conflict
With guile, determination—and unexpected allies—Oria and Lonen return to the place where it all began… and only hope that it won’t also be the end of them.
