Gavin Kinshield's story concludes...

Kinshield's Redemption

Hi, y'all. Well, here we are -- the moment I've been waiting for (and hopefully most of you, too)! Announcing the finale of The Kinshield Saga quadrilogy:  Kinshield's Redemption! It'll be available to purchase at major ebook outlets on August 8, 2013, with a print edition to follow soon after. Here's the book description:

Dozens have been corrupted by tainted water from the Well of the Damned, including Gavin Kinshield's beloved wife. He's desperate to reverse the water's effects and restore Feanna to the kind and compassionate woman he married.

And what of his helpless heir growing in her toxic womb? To save his unborn son, Gavin must find a solution before the darkness that’s overtaken Feanna also stamps out the tiny spark within her.

Help seems to appear in the unlikely form of the Guardians, two ghostly figures tethered to the crystal that lies deep within the wellspring. Can Gavin trust them... or will their own agenda take the lives of his wife and son—and bring on the utter destruction of the seven realms?

The cover art is nearly finished. Visit my web site (www.kcmay.com) to see the full size.

An exciting new adventure!

The Lies Dragons Tell

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm co-writing a new epic fantasy novel with the incredibly talented India Drummond! If you haven't read India's books yet, you're in for a treat. She's a gifted storyteller with a polished, flowing style and a spicy flair. Her Caledonia Fae series is a masterful blend of urban and epic fantasy. We'll be working on the outline of our new project in the weeks to come, so I'll have more updates in my fall newsletter, but I'm excited about this venture, and you should be too!

The title is The Lies Dragons Tell, and it's about two brothers trying to save their sister. We plan to release it in Dec 2014 (both of us have our own books to write, after all), and it's going to be epic!

A mysterious illness sweeps the capital, starting with five highborn youths.  Two brothers, as helpless as the healers who say there's nothing more they can do, watch while their younger sister fades away. Determined to save her, they approach one of the dragonborn, a mage who promises to help but demands a terrible price. Hard choices divide the brothers when they uncover a dark and twisted plot, and their love and loyalty are tested. What price is too high to save someone you love?

India designed and created this cover. What do you think? She's multi-talented!

India lives in Scotland, and we struck up a friendship on Facebook and through email. We've enjoyed each other's books so much, we thought it would be fun to co-write a novel. Please allow me to introduce her.

India knew from age nine that writing would be her passion. Since then she's discovered many more, but none quite so fulfilling as creating a world, a character, or a moment and watching them evolve into something complex and compelling. She has lived in three countries and four American states, is a dual British and American citizen, and currently lives at the base of the Scottish Highlands in a village so small its main attraction is a red phone box. In other words: paradise.

The supernatural and paranormal have always fascinated India. In addition to being an avid sci-fi and fantasy reader, she also enjoys mysteries, thrillers, and romance. This probably explains why her novels have elements of adventure, ghosts (or elves, fairies, angels, aliens, and whatever else she can dream up), and spicy love stories.

India is best known for the Caledonia Fae urban fantasy series. The modern tale begins in Perth, Scotland, where a police constable chases a serial killer, only to discover the crime has roots in the supernatural, a paranormal reality he never knew existed. During his murder investigation, contact with a mysterious woman stirs his dormant druidic powers, changing his life forever. She, and the killer, are fae.

In this bestselling urban and epic fantasy book series, humans are plucked from Scotland, England, The Netherlands, Germany, The United States, Australia, and elsewhere and transported into the faerie realm. They learn to build a new life, tame their magic, even find love, all while facing danger, murder, kidnapping, and chaos. Those who survive will usher a new era into the Otherworld.

Book 1, Blood Faerie, is FREE on Amazon, Apple, and Barnes and Noble.
