Happy 2015! I hope the new year is treating you good. I'm having an ... interesting January. I'm experiencing a totally new pace of writing, which is to say: slow. Agonizingly slow. Snail's pace. I'm hoping it picks up pretty soon so I can actually finish a book this year. Oop.
But enough of that. The title probably clued you in - I'm working on the second book in The Legend Mirror series, my YA mythological fantasy. If you haven't read it (or have and just can't remember what it's all about), The Legend Mirror follows Yasmin, a teenage girl who shape-shifts into a mythic beast, others kids like her in the Red - a group of Legendaries - and Fray, a human girl with a psychic connection to, and romance with, Yasmin. If it interests you, you can find more into on the nav bar at the top and buy links on the side.
The title of book two is
You've probably seen this title floating around my blogs and my website if you happen to go into the individual book pages, but now it's official!
The Dryad of Callaire follows on from book one, taking you into the aftermath of the fight with Discordia and the abduction of Fray. As the title suggests, a dryad (or two) features heavily in the story. This book will also see the introduction of a new Legendary main character! Here's the initial blurb:
The Legend Mirror series returns with more mythology, more danger, and more Majick as Yasmin Wikke sets out on a grief-driven quest to find her missing girlfriend. To get her back, Yasmin will have to ally with Gods, rely upon strangers, and go to extreme lengths. But is rescuing Fray the right path? Has her time away from Callaire altered her beyond repair? And will Yasmin and Fray’s relationship survive even if one of them doesn’t?
A release of August has been penciled in, but nothing is definite so this could change. You can expect a full blurb, cover reveal, and a reveal of the redesigned The Beast of Callaire cover in the months to come!
Let me know your thoughts on the blurb and title! Will you be reading The Dryad of Callaire?
