Denya Fanart – Darien Maverick

Hello and happy Fanart Friday!  This week we have a new piece of Denya Fanart, which I just love.  Seriously, we don’t get enough pieces of Denya.  She’s such a great character.  I am dying to start sharing the new characters from the Wildfires of Summer for you guys, but that will have to wait…for now!

Wrapping Up Megacon Orlando

Wow!  That is the first word that comes to mind when I think about the past four days and our adventures at Megacon Orlando.  Being the first convention that we’ve taken any of my books to, we had no idea what to expect, but I am so happy that we took the plunge as it was an experience I will never forget!  From meeting new fans of Longtails: The Storms of Spring, as well as my previous books, A Love Story for Witches and A Home for Wizards, to meeting some folks that had already heard about us, everyone was just fantastic.  I feel truly humbled.

Book Review – The Longtails

An amazingly in depth review of Longtails: The Storms of Spring! Give it a read for more info if you’re on the fence about the book!

Let Me Tell You the Story of...

This month, I am going wild and doing a lot of animal books for my reviews. Part of how I choose my theme is by which indie book I want to read, and Mr. Headley came up on my blog radar.  I am a closet fan of YA, and I really like Redwall.  By the description, it sounded like The Longtails Saga was going to be a sort of post-apocalyptic Redwall.

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.
