Happy holidays, everyone!
Because it’s cold and grey where I live and it’s time for the holiday season, I figured it was the perfect time to have a small(ish) sale! From December 15 to January 10, I’ve put four of my books up for sale at $0.99 each (or the equivalent in your local currency insofar as I can control it).
That means discounts ranging between 66% and a whopping 86%! WOW! If you’ve been looking to snap up some of my ebooks for cheap, for yourself or as a gift, this is the perfect time to dive in as these offer up a great selection of my work! Let’s take a look at the ones on sale with buy links and everything for the easiest shopping experience!
Among the Glimmering Flowers – From $5.99 now $0.99! Get it here!
Felicity feels stifled by her parents’ protective nature. She’s the crown princess, yet she’s not even allowed to care for her own pony. Her life consists of nothing but rules and permissions. All she wants is a little more freedom.
Horse-friend is happy to have a roof over his head, a job that he likes and food in his stomach every day. He never expected to run into the crown princess as she tries to sneak out of the castle. Or to get caught up in her clumsy attempts at having an adventure.
It isn’t long before trouble, rather than adventure, finds both of them, setting them on a course that will change their lives — and the fate of the kingdom — forever.
Among the Glimmering Flowers is the story of how two lovers first became friends and the first book in a series exploring a demisexual/allosexual romantic relationship. Readers looking for a low-conflict, cosy story should enjoy this novel.
Feather by Feather and Other Stories – From $5.99 now $0.99! Get it here!
Feather by Feather and Other Stories is a varied collection of over 40 stories and poems. In these stories, demons struggle with their nature (and bake biscuits); a young girl faces a witch in search of the bobble hat that will save her Great-Aunt; a steam engine attempts the impossible; a student finds a book that may spell the death of her; catastrophe strikes Nightshadow and his people, testing their faith in the Stars; a mermaid learns that life above the sea offers far more than princes; ghosts howl their stories at passersby; an asexual teenager struggles with relationships and trust; and Phee… Well. Phee is Phee.
Lynn E. O’Connacht’s first collection is a kaleidoscope of tales, featuring folktale and fairytale retellings, superhero fiction, science fiction, realistic fiction and more. Sensitive, imaginative, heart-wrenching, gentle, witty, candid, and engrossing Feather by Feather and Other Stories is a powerful and enchanting selection. It also includes an explanation on how to write your own triple sestina, a self-interview and brief commentary on every piece published in the collection.
A Promise Broken – From $4.99 now $0.99! Get it here!
It’s a rainy day when four-year-old Eiryn has to say goodbye to her mother. Scared, confused and unwilling to do so, Eiryn tries to summon water to stop the funeral from happening and her life falls apart. Her uncle is always sad and busy; she keeps hearing her mother’s voice asking her to follow; her best friend keeps getting into fights; and some of her classmates hate her for existing.
Arèn never wanted children, but he’s desperate to protect his niece from his people’s extreme caution regarding magic and other races. Kerisaoina children aren’t capable of using it and his niece is no exception. Despite being only half-kerisaoina, Eiryn is already starting to show that she’ll be one of her generation’s most talented magic-singers and those who don’t approve of her existence are trying to take advantage of a young girl’s grief.
Eiryn is determined to make her uncle happy, but it’s hard to make other people happy when you have to struggle through the day yourself. She’ll find a way, though. She’s promised. And even if her mother won’t keep her word Eiryn will keep hers.
She’ll make everything right again.
Rapunzel, Rapunzel – From $2.99 now $0.99! Get it here!
Rapunzel, Rapunzel is a collection of poems, a fairy tale of modern life, growing up and falling in love. Or not.
Divided into five different parts, Rapunzel, Rapunzel explores the impact of anxiety and bullying, and the strength of love, for others and for ourselves. It muses on the difficulty of discovering who we are and how the masks we wear affect our lives and relationships.
Most of all, Rapunzel, Rapunzel is about embracing all aspects of yourself, even the ones you’re scared to show, and finding strength in who you are as a person.
And that’s it! That’s the books on sale this winter from December 15 to January 10! Get them while they’re cheap! I, of course, think they make wonderful holiday reading, but I’m totally biased.
That said, if you’re not sure what to pick… I can try to help out! Let me give you my totally not biased (disclaimer: they may be totally biased) recommendations on what to get if you’re not sure which book is right for you. (Or get multiple ones! Together they’re $3.96, so that’s four whole books – cumulatively over 225K – for less than the price of one!)
I’d recommend Feather by Feather and Other Stories if you’re looking to get a good sense of my range. That’s got a little bit of everything, so there’s bound to be something you enjoy in there. It’s got short stories, novelettes, poetry, fantasy, contemporary, dark fantasy, science fiction…
If you’re more of a novel reader than a short story reader (hi! I know that feeling!), I’d go for Among the Glimmering Flowers or A Promise Broken. Both stand on their own perfectly fine.
If you like your fantasy with fae and a ton of social commentary and just a touch of snark, I’d recommend Among the Glimmering Flowers the strangers-to-friends beginnings of a friends-to-lovers tale that I’m aiming to release in 2019 or 2020.
If you like your fantasy deliciously subtle and immersive as well as very very queer, I’d recommend A Promise Broken. Featuring my tiny child protagonist and her trans aroace uncle deuteragonist. With political machinations and child shenanigans, it focuses on family and community. Be warned of a potential cute overload!
If you like verse novels and poetry instead, Rapunzel, Rapunzel is a delightful short introduction to my verse novels. It is, technically, not part of the Fairytale Verses series, but it does retell a fairytale. As you probably gathered from the title already.
Again, happy holidays! May you find something wonderful and delightful to read!
