Longtails: The Wildfires of Summer Cover Reveal

Hello everyone! Wow, what a year it has been. When I decided to publish not one but TWO books this year, I don’t think I could have possibly imagined the amount of work it would take.  But now, here we are with Book 2 of Longtails finally ready to meet all of you! Longtails: The Wildfires of Summer will be available everywhere books are sold on September 23, 2019.  That’s right, the LAST DAY OF SUMMER! Talk about just making the cut!

With that being said, I thought we’d take a look at the amazing cover art, designed and illustrated by Dexter Allagahrei, who you may recall did the cover for Longtails: The Storms of Spring.  With any luck, I won’t have scared him away with the crazy last minute deadline of this cover and we’ll have him for rest of the series!

Alright, enough talk, here’s the front cover!

And of course, here’s the back cover!

Since it’s a little small, I thought I’d include the back cover text here for you:

In a not too distant future, humanity is extinct. The world is now ruled by animals who wield swords, cast spells, and use what we left behind to craft weapons, mechs and motorbikes.  And while darkness may be looming just over the horizon, the greatest threat the nations of this new world now face is each other.

After learning to accept himself and his newfound powers, Del Hatherhorne and his band of Longtails are called upon to help broker a peace treaty between the Confederacy of Blue Jays and the Raccoon Enclave.  However, when the raccoons realize that Del, the one and only Trelock, has been invited to the treaty signing, things quickly escalate beyond any of their control. Now, a fire blazes to the south, a war rages right outside the ancient blue jay city of Nesavary, and old enemies are closing in from all sides. Del, along with new friends and old, will need to learn to ignite hope in the face of total destruction as they attempt to survive The Wildfires of Summer.

From Jaysen Headley, author of Longtails: The Storms of Spring and A Love Story for Witches, the epic woodland adventure continues in this exciting second chapter of the Longtails Saga.

Draw your sword, rev your engine, and answer the call of the LONGTAILS!

I can’t wait for all our loyal Longtails fans to get a hold of this book in less than a month! Are you excited? Let me know in the comments and make sure to follow the Longtails adventures on our official Facebook page!

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.

As a whole, my assumption was mostly true.  Magic was involved in the story, and the culture of the mice was a combination of modern American and East-Asian rather than medieval English.  One of the things I didn’t like about it was it had a lot of references, reminiscent of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One.  I hated RPO, but if you liked both RPO and Redwall, you should DEFINITELY read Longtails.  Even with the references…
