Back at it, with more of a normal day. Sorry for the late notification. Travis started early, and I was in the middle of posting Bard & Barbarian stuffs, and … bah. He just finished Chapter 100 of LMM. More before the lunch break!

Narration, Day 1
Lord Mettlebright’s Man. Jacques is going to audio, and you can listen in if you drop by the listener’s lounge on Travis Baldree’s discord server. I’ll be there!
Travis Reads. If you’re interested in the sequel series to Galleries of Stone by C.J. Milbrandt (one of my other pennames), Travis Baldree will launch into the prologue of Farley (Journeymen of Stone, #1) this morning. The tale of Tupper’s younger brother will take a handful of days to tell. If you want to drop by for a sneak look/listen, join Travis’s Discord server. (Details on this post.) It’s always fun to watch him do his thing. ::twinkle::
Audio Book Sale
Songs of the Amaranthine. Good news! The audio edition of Governed by Whimsy: The Anthology is on sale until 2/24/23. Travis Baldree narrates the first four short stories in the Songs of the Amaranthine collection:
- Marked by Stars
- Followed by Thunder
- Dragged through Hedgerows
- Governed by Whimsy
ART: Opal the Sage
Opulence Windlore. When this dragon clansman showed up for Bathed in Moonlight, it must have been a “confluence of destinies,” because he charmed his way into all my future plans for the Amaranthine Saga (and quite possibly a future Interlude). A song-writer and storyteller of some fame, he’s long-winded, high-handed, self-important, and often smug … yet somehow manages to be (as Sinder would put it) one of the good guys. Opal is due to recur in Bk7. ::twinkle::

Where are my manners?” Seyroo beckoned him closer. “Char, this good dragon is Opulence Windlore, widely known as Opal the Sage, a tale-bringer and lore-singer in high demand throughout the Widelands.”
“Charmed,” said the dragon, whose smile was winsome and wily.

Oooh. I happen to have a clip from Bathed in Moonlight, in which Opal presents Char with a choice:

Galleries of Stone
News Flash! Because of a last-minute shuffle in his schedule, Travis Baldree’s narration of the third book in the Galleries of Stone trilogy by C.J. Milbrandt has been pulled to … TOMORROW! I’m always recommending this cozy fantasy series (it’s even linked on this blog’s sticky post: Want MOAR? Try this highly recommended series >>), in part because (dun, dun, dunnnn) I wrote it. (CJ is one of my other pen names.) Naturally, I always recommend starting a trilogy at the beginning, but if you want a free sample & to meet Tupper, Freydolf, and the rest … drop by in the morning for LIVE narration! ::twinkle::
How do you listen? You’ll need to join Travis’s Discord server, Cryptid Audio: https://discord.gg/duzCS2D Most days, he starts his sessions between 8am-9am. I’ll be there early. Hope you can drop in, too!

Release Day is October 22, 2022.

P.S. “Hearth slippers” were first referenced in Governed by Whimsy (Songs of the Amaranthine, #4). They’re definitely a thing for the feline clans, but most especially for hearthcats. ::solemn wink::
