A Big Thank You to Everyone Who Made Longtails Possible!

With Longtails releasing, I wanted to release the Acknowledgments from the back of the book.  Let’s face it, whether you read the book or not, these amazing folks deserve to be praised!

A lot can change in a very short amount of time. If The Storms of Spring has taught me anything, it’s that what you expect and what actually happens are very often completely different. When I released my last novel, A Home for Wizards, over two years ago, in one of the worst snow storms to ever hit New York City, I had no idea I was about to embark on one of the most challenging years of my life, followed by one of the most incredible. Not two days after the release of that book, I signed a contract to write Apollo’s Landing, an idea which I knew was a sure winner. In fact, I even said that it would be one of the easiest things I’d ever written. Oh, how wrong I was.

Longtails First Copy Deep Dive

Hello there friends!  I just realized that I hadn’t done a post since the release of the official cover last week!  And yet, that feels like only yesterday.  Can I just say that this week has been a whirlwind?  That being said, Longtails: The Storms of Spring will be in YOUR hands in less than 20 days.  It just so happens that as of yesterday, Longtails is now in MY hands.  Therefore, I thought it would be fun to share a close look at the book with all of you!

Longtails: The Storms of Spring Cover Reveal

This may sound strange, but I sometimes don’t actually start to believe that a book I am writing will be released to the public until the cover is finished.  There’s something about seeing the cover which just makes everything feel a little bit more real.  That being said, I am thrilled and ecstatic to finally reveal the official cover for Longtails: The Storms of Spring, which releases in print and ebook on April 24.  The artwork and design was done by the wonderful Dexter Allagahrei who has been fantastic to work with on this project.  Dexter is always timely and puts up with my many requests and changes.  He is also responsible for most of the artwork on this site.  That being said, Longtails would not be possible without Dexter, so I want to thank him whole-heartedly for all the love, support and time.  Okay, let’s get to the reveal!!!

What is Longtails?

Longtails is a new series which tells the story of mice living in a dangerous world in the far future, long after humanity has gone extinct.  As they try to survive, they’ll encounter all sorts of different animal clans.  Some who have learned to harness the power of technology from the old world and others who have learned to control magic and the elements.  Based on high fantasy and my love of tabletop role-playing games, Longtails is, at its heart, an adventure story, and this April, I hope you will join their journey and Answer the Call to be one of the prestigious mouse soldiers, protectors and journeymen known as The Longtails.
