On a related note, if you’re planning to buy a signed copy of the anthology from me, the first shipment will go out the door tomorrow. (I spent yesterday getting your orders ready.) But there’s certainly still time to add to the pile of packages. Details on this post >>

Day 3

Narration Continues. Travis Baldree will continue his narration of Flattered by Flowers: The Anthology this morning. There’s a bit left of Captured on Film. He’s doing amazing things with the Dare brothers. Then, he’ll dive into Bathed in Moonlight. Anyone else looking forward to wolves, moon maids, and Opulence Windlore? ::twinkle::

I hope you can join the fun! I explained the HOW TO on this post, from when Travis narrated Galleries of Stone.

Narration Session

Imminent. As many of you know by now, there are audio editions of both the Amaranthine Saga and the Songs of the Amaranthine collection. Travis Baldree does a splendid job of bringing my assorted casts to life, and he lets folks listen in (and watch) while he does his thing. Since my turn on his docket is coming up in a couple of days, I’m inviting you to join in on the fun. You’ll need Discord. Let’s see. I explained the HOW TO on this post, from when he narrated Galleries of Stone.

The recordings will likely take four days (Friday, February 18 – Monday, February 21). Travis will be reading the four short stories in the next Songs of the Amaranthine anthology:

  • Hemmed in Silver
  • Captured on Film
  • Bathed in Moonlight
  • Flattered by Flowers

Fair Warning: He will NOT be reading Flattered by Flowers live, since I want to keep that tale under wraps until 4/4, when it’ll have its digital-only release. You can currently pre-order Flattered by Flowers on Amazon. It’ll show up in other venues soon. Flattered by Flowers: The Anthology will release in print & audio on May 22, 2022. I won’t start taking orders for signed copies until May 1, 2022.

Which of these four short stories are you MOST looking forward to (and why)?

Release Day

Bathed in Moonlight. Today’s the day! The 7th Songs of the Amaranthine tale has released. I hope it’s well-received. And since such tales are short & sweet, I’ll make this post do double duty as the Squee Post for Bathed in Moonlight.

Some courtships follow all the rules. Some courtships bend them.
As the Seven Score Moons cycle through their phases, the appointed time for the Queen’s Festival draws near. Wolves from all over will gather at a site that the packs count as sacred, to sing for the Moon and her maidens. Rinloo is part of an allotment of dexes sent to guard the Circle, which has long been anchored by an Amaranthine tree. There he encounters a girl-child spirited to safety by imps and an unhappy maid from the Luminous Court.

Squee Post. If you need a place to react, confer, or kick up a fuss, this is the spot. I’ll enjoy your enthusiasm, I might be willing to clarify small points, but I reserve the right to evade questions that will be answered later in the Saga & Songs. ::twinkle::

[[[WARNING: HERE THERE BE SPOILERS]]]

Pre-Order

Bathed in Moonlight. The next short story in the Songs of the Amaranthine collection will be releasing in a couple of days. (It’ll actually be delivered tomorrow evening, if you’ve pre-ordered.) So here’s one last teaser to encourage you to snag your copy.

Fun Mail

Celestia Bumbers. A little while back, I received a fun bit of mail. A reading friend created one of the Ephemera that appears in Captured on Film (Songs of the Amaranthine, #6). So cute!

Thank you, W! ::glomp::

Caleb’s heart was sinking. “Are they rare, these bumbers?”
“Increasingly so.”
With another sidelong look, he asked, “Do they look like fuzzy white bees with blue eyes?”

Don’t forget that you can currently pre-order the next Songs of the Amaranthine story, Bathed in Moonlight!

Pre-Order a Song

Bathed in Moonlight (Songs of the Amaranthine, #7) is now available for pre-order on Amazon (for Kindle). This short story will release as a digital only title (for now). Since this is the seventh title in the Songs of the Amaranthine collection, we’re only one away from having enough to create a second print anthology. And yes, closer to release, the story should show up in other venues.
