Book Chat: New Releases and Reborn Is a Finalist

Months later than I originally thought I would have People of Foxwick and Their Neighbors published, this short story collection is finally available in print and ebook formats!

The kingdom hangs in the balance.

War threatens Foxwick on all sides.

The dreaded Shadowlands gains more souls. From the shrouded trees in Greymist Forest to the arid Blackden Barrens, monsters roam in search of their next victim. Sirens lure ships beneath Merrilea Sea. In cold and snowy Wintermill, royals plot to claim Foxwick as their own, even if they must use dragons and sorcery. Marriage between Foxwick’s king and Lochhollow’s princess creates a perilous alliance. Although brave Valdale will come to Foxwick’s aid, the cost may be more than a true friend can stomach.

Set over a hundred years, these seventeen fantasy short stories explore the people, creatures, and lands in and around the Kingdom of Foxwick.

Short stories in the collection: Common Love, Blind Scribe, Lady Bard, Siren’s Call, Dragon’s Sacrifice, Tribal Abandonment, Dragon Spy, Dragon Seer, Sword Master, Lady Death, Mage Game, Courting Magic, Monster Hunger, Mourner’s Lament, Magic Seeker, Prince’s Price, and Love’s Challenge

The Foxwick Chronicles #2
80,000 words or 274 pages

People of Foxwick includes the short stories from the former smaller collections Women of Foxwick and Men of Foxwick (both individually published and now unpublished) and seven new short stories.

And on Tuesday, I got some exciting news. Reborn is a finalist in the Fantasy category in EPIC's eBook Competition. I entered Reborn into the competition back in June and wasn't expecting much, but I'm thrilled to be a finalist. They'll announce the winners at their annual conference in March, which I unfortunately will be unable to attend. I got a cool badge and a certificate for being a finalist.

Way to go on being a finalist!!! Congrats to you on your new Foxwick book (I've already got it downloaded via pre-sale!), and I think I have all but two of the books in that collection - but I think it's cool that you all put that together!
