When I originally planned to drop these chapters, they were completely different. I've said it before and I'll say it again, a lot has happened the past few months, and I had to rewrite a lot of this book because it no longer felt appropriate. A lot of how a book is received often has … Continue reading Alice, Haldia, Serials, and Some Little Business tidbits.
Sometimes in life, you are a complete mess, and that is me. Right now. Right here. And so, without further ado, I present to you my newspost. You get two photos of my dog this blog post. Alright, let's start with what everyone is wondering; release dates. Alice in the Land of Hearts will have … Continue reading The Absurdly Long, Not So Well Announced News Post (Alice, Haldia, The Troll King’s Bride! Whynne Stuff! New Series! Finishing Series! AND MORE.)
Did you know that while Whynne is the main country with fae, it's not the be all end all of fae/magical creatures? Well, bam, now you do. When you get into the Chronicles of Whynne, you see a country that is just beginning to open up for the first time after so long, and consequentially … Continue reading Selkies in Whynne and Haldia.
Pronunciations, oh my god, pronunciations. Never have I thought of making a guide in the back of the books, but in future ones I might have to. I'll also touch a little bit on the bonus content today. So, without further ado... How do you say that? Words in Whynne. Whynne - Wuh-en. Pronounced like … Continue reading Pronunciations in Whynne and When the Next Short is Coming.
I always wanted to give readers a little peek into what Luka's life was like pre-Wren knowing. So, included in the omnibus edition next month and available here, I present the Note, the first amongst three extra stories related to the Chronicles of Whynne. In it we sort of get an idea of the two's … Continue reading The Note: An additional Ink and Foxglove short.
Today we're talking about the Gancanagh, which too me is just like a super cool topic and something that really ended up shaping the series. The original trajectory for Quill and Cobweb was so much different before these creatures and it really became something that ended up shaping the story of Whynne. Probably the most … Continue reading The Evolution of the Gancanagh
Bugul Noz. Oh my god, Bugul Noz. When you get into characters in the Chronicles of Whynne, I definitely have some clear favorites, but in five seconds or less, Bugul Noz beat them all. I originally wasn't going to include him at all, he was just a funny story I read about in my research … Continue reading Bugul Noz, the Loneliest Seelie.
Wow, what a time these past few months have been, and how unbelievable it is that as I write this post, the last book sits on my computer, waiting to see the world. I've received a few emails over the past few nights asking me about Whynne and what comes next. It's very funny, because … Continue reading The Future of the Chronicles of Whynne and a General Update
The sequel to Ink and Foxglove, Quill and Cobweb, is releasing June 26th!
It had been night once... Long before I was born, a human queen ended the endless darkness and drove out the Unseelie, pushing those that remained back into the forest surrounding the Kingdom of Whynne. Ever since, there have been whispers from humans and Seelie alike that the beasts will return to reclaim the stolen … Continue reading Ink and Foxglove, available May 19th!
