The Sunday catchup returns, with this announcement: The sixth Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, will be published this coming Tuesday, October 11!
“Whatever it takes to rescue Beth, I’ll do it.”
The Crown of Kylthena is a legendary relic from the Lost Lands of Earth. The stories say it brings great power to its wearer. Michiko Koyama, the hero known as the Monkey Queen, is sent to retrieve the crown along with her girlfriend and partner in adventure Beth McGill, only to find that it’s been stolen. They’ll have to hop from world to world and team up with the enigmatic wizard Alasdair Sterling to get it back…but can he be trusted?
And even if they find the crown, the secrets it holds could tear Beth away from Michiko…or lead to their doom.
Come back Tuesday for buying links, and click here in case you missed Friday’s preview of the first two chapters of Michiko and Beth’s newest adventure! More after the cut! Continue reading
The first draft of the sixth Monkey Queen book, The Crown Of Kylthena, is finally done!
Don’t get too excited yet. There’s still at least one round of editing and revising to come, and we need to wait for Willow to recover from her wrist tendinitis before she can finish the cover. It’ll still be a while before The Crown Of Kylthena is published.
But if you want to get a bit excited, be my guest. I am!
Especially since I’m getting some great ideas going for the seventh book…
First off, with Christmas starting to loom in the distance like a giant commercialized monster hungering for your attention and money: You might want to check here on the 27th (“Black Friday” to Americans) for the Monkey Queen short story “Best Christmas Ever!”…in its new, slightly revised version, along with a “Behind The Scenes” post! Grab some candy canes and a white chocolate mocha and come back Friday! More (including spoilers) after the cut! Continue reading
We’re kicking off this Sunday catchup, and wrapping up our anniversary week, with big news: We’re pleased to announce that Willow, who has done such wonderful covers for the Monkey Queen series, will be returning to do the cover for the upcoming fifth book, Redblade! We still can’t set a publication date yet, but if you were to say “mid-November”, we wouldn’t argue with you. More after the cut!
Speaking of, congratulations to Willow for completing her BD, The Journey Of Earth, and getting it to the printer! She’ll have copies for sale next month! Look for a peek at the cover later this week, and if you want to preorder a copy, contact her through her Facebook or DeviantArt pages! (Remember that the book is only French…but things can change.)
If you missed this week’s posts, you really should go back and read them all. It was fun looking back at the Monkey Queen’s first year. We hope you’ll stick around; the best is yet to come for Michiko and Beth!
Oh, and the anniversary day happened to coincide with a certain day in the author’s life, so he may have been out last night eating a hamburger and ice cream to celebrate it. Please don’t spoil the Doctor Who season opener here. Thanks.
And speaking of thanks… The music starts at about 30 seconds in, and coincidentally, that’s when someone starts chopping onions nearby, because I’m reminded again of how fortunate I am to be able to do this, and how grateful I am to all of you for your support. Thank you again, thank you all.
