Enduring Chaos launch events

We are now officially less than a week away from the launch of Enduring Chaos! Plans are coming together for multiple launch events celebrating the release of this long-awaited book.

I will be at SFContario at the Ramada Plaza Hotel at 300 Jarvis St. in Toronto next weekend, November 29-December 1, where the official launch party for Enduring Chaos is taking place. Enduring Chaos will be available at the table for Brain Lag in the dealers room all weekend and I will also be sitting on panels on Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror on Saturday and Strength of Characters on Sunday.

The launch party for Enduring Chaos is taking place in the Courtyard room of the hotel Saturday, November 30 at 6:00 p.m. This event is open to the public so please come out and help me celebrate the release of the first book in the Sisters of Chaos trilogy with games, prizes, and more fun. RSVP not required, but if you do so by comment here or on the Facebook event page, you can have your very own custom-made SFContario badge for the party!

For those in the Milton, Ontario area, there will be another launch event happening at Recycled Reading at 171 Main St. between James and Martin St. on Friday, December 6 at 3:00 p.m. Come out to meet the author, get a signed copy, learn more about the book, and enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages! For more information, feel free to visit the Facebook event page.

Apologies for the silence of late, I have been scrambling to finish things up for the release of Enduring Chaos. We are just about ready over here!

We are 10 days away from SFContario and 11 away from the launch party, which is happening in the Courtyard of the Ramada Plaza Hotel on Saturday, November 30 at 6:00 p.m. I will also be with Brain Lag in the dealers room all weekend as well as helping host panels on the differences between scifi, fantasy, and horror and on creating memorable characters. Hope to see you out there!

Update: Cover reveal and giveaway!

For this week’s update, I am proud to present the cover art for Enduring Chaos!

enduring chaos front cover

Cursed with fearsome eyes and a dangerous gift, any chance of Damian Sires having an ordinary life was dashed the moment she was born. All her life, she has hidden her abnormalities and fought for acceptance behind the shadow of a veil and her respected merchant father.

When Damian’s power spirals out of control and casts her out alone into the world, she finds herself caught up in plots as old as the gods themselves. Bitter exiles, deposed nobility, clandestine knights, and a divine being with an ancient grudge all close in on the unstable power radiating from Damian.

Desperate to keep that power contained, she sets out with mysterious allies in an attempt to find someone who can help her in a world that fears magic. Yet the source of Damian’s ability is far more deadly than she imagined.

In addition to the cover reveal, I am offering a giveaway to win a free e-copy of Ruins of Change by J. R. Dwornik, the first book in the world of Elderra! Simply comment on this post  by October 25th and you will automatically be entered into the giveaway.

Update: Vignette 1

This week’s update brings us the first in a series of all-new short stories related to the trilogy! This first vignette tells the tale of the formation of an unlikely partnership about three weeks prior to the beginning of Enduring Chaos.

**

The Agaesi. The dragon knights of Hesperia. The name invokes awe, wonder, and sometimes fear into the hearts of all those who hear it, high lords as much as commoners. They are a relic out of history, surviving since the Time of Gods and Magic and ever with rumours circling about them. They possess strange powers, yet no one outside their order knows what these gifts are or where they come from. The Agaesi are a mystery, as much an apparition as men in the flesh.

We are trained to handle things beyond the comprehension of most people. And then there’s me, with my unique instruction and experience with the underhanded intrigues of court politics. I have been taught how to face things that would drive a normal person mad.

But I wasn’t sure how to handle this.

Indiegogo campaign complete! The verdict…

Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to our campaign to raise funds for production of a live action trailer for Enduring Chaos. I really appreciate everyone’s support and I am pleased to say that we made our goal! I’m really looking forward to seeing how this trailer comes out, and of course, I’m quite eager to share it with you when it’s ready.

As a reminder, I will be at the Pirate Festival in Milton, Ontario this weekend, Saturday through Monday. I’ll be giving readings on the stage each day of the festival from 2:30-3:00 p.m., and on Monday I will have a new advance reading from Enduring Chaos. In addition to that, I will have a special treat for attendees: a first look at the cover art for Enduring Chaos! This has not yet been shared anywhere else in the world, so please come out and take a look on Monday.

Next site update coming on Friday. See you then!
