There are so many exciting things afoot right now, I don't know where to begin.
Tomorrow, October 22, as part of DelSheree Gladden's month-long Meet the Character Blog Fest, you will get to see the most detailed preview yet of the cover for High Maga. I have a post that compares images of Eolyn, past and present, and I talk about how the cover art for my novels reflects Eolyn's development as a character.
I also invite you to visit last week's Meet the Character post on Adiana of Selkynsen, a musician and close friend of Eolyn's. Adiana is a minor character in both Eolyn and High Maga. While she does not command magic like Eolyn, her music confers a special power of its own. Adiana has been one of my favorite characters since she appeared in my first novel, and I look forward to sharing more of her story in the second one.
If you visit DelSheree's blog, don't forget to register to win the grand prize of over forty free books. There are lots of opportunities to enter, including free entry for fans of Eolyn on Facebook and followers of Eolyn on Twitter.
We are working hard on a new web site for Hadley Rille Books. I love the new format; it gives a much better idea of the dynamic strength of this small but very busy press. It's also designed to make it easier for visitors to browse HRB titles and meet HRB authors. The new site may be up as early as next week, but (hopefully) no later than the first week of November.
I'll close with another vagancia. For some reason, lately I've taken to making videos about my courses at Avila. I shared the first video, about Ecology through the Writers Lens, a couple weeks back. Now here's a video about my introductory course on Environmental Science. Enjoy, and stay tuned because there is much more news to come. . .
