It’s exciting to look back at what we accomplished in a single year and to look forward to what we’re going to achieve next year. It’s taken us a long time to reach this point, but it’s only further proof that you should never give up on your dreams. Even though we still have a long way to go, it will all be worth it in the end. We thank everyone who has supported us on this journey.
We have a surprise for those of you who have enjoyed the Isle of the Forgotten Series. From the beginning, we intended for the series to span three books. That’s been expanded, as we now have a novella set for release in January. And…there will also be a fourth full-length novel! Each book is a standalone, with an overarching plot playing out in the background as the individual stories progress. The hero of the fourth book in the series will be a character who plays a role in all the stories prior. Keric Ornthalas. Yep! The High Mage will be getting a happily-ever-after of his own! His story will be titled Make Me Surrender.
There will be a longer than usual wait between Make Me Yours and Make Me Surrender. We’ve talked about this, but we’ll be taking a short break from the fantasy world of the Isle of the Forgotten to work on our post-apocalyptic Sci-fi, Dustwalker. We started Dustwalker after we finished writing Make Me Burn and it’s been on hold ever since. We’re eager to finish it. But we promise, as soon as Dustwalker is complete, we will be wrapping up the Isle of the Forgotten Series!
Now then, onto the fun stuff! I revealed the cover for Make Me Whole: The Novella on Facebook, but here it is again, painted by Isis Sousa of Helheimen Design, with the Blurb Reveal!
Consumed by guilt, Quildor Vinson returns to the Mage Tower and questions his place. He saw the signs of instability in his commander; could he have prevented the betrayal that nearly killed his comrades? When the High Mage mentions strange reports near the village of Quildor’s birth, he sees a chance to take action and volunteers immediately to investigate. Though he hasn’t set foot in the village for eighteen years, he has never forgotten Wren, the girl who claimed his heart when he was young. If the only woman he’s ever loved is in danger, Quildor knows he cannot remain idle. Even if it means disregarding the High Mage’s orders.
If you follow us on Facebook, you know how hard it was for me to hold this back. I adore the cover of Make Me Yours! Wings! Oh the wings! Isis Sousa is amazing, and we couldn’t ask for a better cover artist. Not only is she a delight to work with, but she produces beautiful art. And here it is…the cover of Make Me Yours (Isle of the Forgotten #3) featuring Gaelin.
What’s this? There’s more? That’s right! We have an alternate cover! On Facebook, we asked our readers what they preferred because we were torn for this cover. Did they prefer the characters looking out at the audience as on the previous covers? Or did they prefer something more intimate, with the couple gazing at each other? The answers were split pretty evenly. We talked this over with Isis and she agreed that it would be best as a series to keep with the theme…BUT it would be an amazing surprise to you, the readers, to have an alternate version, so she volunteered to paint this for us as well! (See! I told you…she’s AMAZING!) We plan to make this cover a Limited Time Only edition in Print upon the release of Make Me Yours as I know we’ll most definitely want this on our bookshelf!
We hope you’re as excited as we are!
