Hey everyone! I hope your last two weeks went swimmingly. The hardcopies of the audiobook have been sent out! Today we're going to go over the contest winner (huzzah), book tour, and a sneak peak from Heroes or Thieves (RAW).
AND NOW the moment we have been waiting like three weeks for... the winner of the Character Art Poll Contest is.... (DRUMROLL*)
ALVENA! Woo! I'm actually pretty excited about this! Alvena has been surprisingly popular. Not to say I SHOULD be surprised--I like her a lot myself--but since I never intended for her to even exist, it's been quite the ride.
So here is the insider scoop on our trouble-making handmaiden: I was writing a scene with Hairem and decided to approach it from another angle. At that time, the servant girl was a bland piece of paper--just a literary tool. And within seconds of entering her mind she exploded with personality. I knew I had to visit her again. And again. And again. And before I knew it she had written herself write into a primary point of view character with enough spunk to hold her own against any who might challenge her original purpose (aka: me).
I can't wait to share with you what is to come! I will update you with all the sketches along the way!
Thank you to all of you who have followed Kings or Pawns recent book tour. It was a lot of fun and I am thankful for their time! There are still a few days for your friends/family to join in the giveaway.
I would love to hear from more of you as well--your likes, your dislikes. After all, you are part of this series now! Just the other day I had a great time talking to @Tsc_progress on Twitter after he just finished the book!
As you all know by now I have had to delay the release of Heroes or Thieves until the summer (intending June). But that can feel like a lifetime after that KoP ending, am I right?! So, I am offering you a RAW (that means that this is a DRAFT/UNEDITED/TOTALLY LIABLE TO CHANGE OR NOT EVEN BE IN THE BOOK) piece from Heroes or Thieves. I intend to include the next chapters with more updates :D
**BE WARNED. If you have NOT finished Kings or Pawns you should NOT read this. It is a spoiler.**
If you would like to take your first bite from what shall become Heroes or Thieves, you can find the Prologue HERE.
As always, I thank you all for your support and can't wait to connect with you soon! <3
