Behold! The Book Trailer for Pilgrim of the Sky (and Audio Coming Soon!)

By on Feb 16, 2014 in fantasy, fiction, pilgrim of the sky, podcast, publication, writing | 0 comments

I’d wanted to do a book trailer for Pilgrim for quite some time, but when the book came out I was pregnant and a total mess. Personal life aside, it may be a few years after the fact but hey! It’s still my book. I’m still totally proud of it. And I have this live reading I’m doing, so it’s still good timing. I had a blast putting it together, and the fact that I was able to incorporate Brigid’s amazing artwork and my sister’s phenomenal music… even better. And don’t forget, you can catch the whole playlist, too. That’s five chapters! Keep an eye out for the audio files, too! For February and March, I’m live broadcasting the whole novel. For free! For fun! For dragons and vampiric pegasi (pegasuses?). You can see the scheduled Google Hangouts on Air right here. Check out the whole...

Just a quick note to say that chapters 1-3 of Pilgrim of the Sky are now up at my YouTube page. Expect the audio only files a little later this week. I’m having a blast doing the reading, and it’s been a great opportunity to revisit the book. Stay tuned for the whole story!

Watch Pilgrim of the Sky Unfold Live and in Person in the Month of February!

Having just finished Watcher of the Skies, and considering that its predecessor (I won’t say prequel–because technically the second book is a prequel… and a follow up, but not a sequel…) is a little more than two years old, I thought I’d be a little daring. I was supposed to record an audiobook of Pilgrim of the Sky. But then I got pregnant. And recording an audiobook with a baby just doesn’t work. I felt awful, and have been thinking of ways to make it up ever since. Then it occurred to me. Why not do it LIVE? So. I am. I’ve recorded the first chapter as a bit of a teaser, and starting next Tuesday (2/4) @ 9pm EST I’ll be broadcasting one chapter every Tuesday and Thursday in February. The book starts in February, so it seems fitting, doesn’t it? In fact, you can catch the first chapter RIGHT...

More Pilgrim of the Sky Reviews!

I’ve been very behind in providing reviews for Pilgrim of the Sky — mostly due to being insanely busy and preparing to bring the new little creature into the world (9 weeks to go, for those who are counting). However, I am grateful and thrilled that so many people have connected with the book, and offer here a few choice bits for you to read: From Chuck Lawton at GeekDad (whose band The Vitrolum Republic you should check out, not to mention the project of his wife, Sue, The Circus and the Cyclone): The novel is grand in scope, rich in description and full of wonderful discovery. It will take you from the present modern world to a world born of an alternate history which parallels our own to a wholly ancient and powerful realm. It has plenty of originality while echoing the elements of other authors such as Neil Gaiman and Phillip Pullman — comparisons I make with great...

Source: s3.amazonaws.com via Natania on Pinterest Well, that’s a little misleading. I’m not really going very far, in terms of miles. But I do have a series of podcast interviews and a live event coming up in the next few weeks. 2/7 — SF Diner — I’ll be a guest at the SciFi Diner podcast on Tuesday, talking about geeky things and my book. I’ll share the link when it’s ready! 2/8 — 6pm — I’ll be part of a local authors panel entitled “Where Do You Get Your Ideas” at the Orange County Library in Hillsborough. 2/14 — I’ll be on Functional Nerds! 2/22 — I’ll be on Geek Radio Daily! I’m also slated to be visiting Steampod at some point in the near future. More details on that as it happens. Suffice it to say, February will be a month filled of opportunities to listen to me blabber own about...

Let’s give her something to write about…

There are likely a series of posts I could do stemming from my trip this past week to the West Coast, but I’m finding I just don’t have the distance I need yet. Still having trouble sleeping, mostly due to the time change, and feeling generally spent. The short rundown is that I spent a week visiting two relatives who are both fighting cancer… as you might well imagine, this has left me a bit dazed, to say the least. In the mean time, my focus is on writing, not the blog, for the moment. I’ve got to get my groove back before I start pondering long posts again. And as for the podcast, unfortunately my husband has the computer where the latest installment of Alderpod is sitting… and he’s in Florida. So, that’s not going to happen until next week. At the moment, however, I breached the third chapter of The Ward of the Rose, which is super awesome...
