It’s got a release date! It’s got a release date! (I may be slightly excited about this.) Below you’ll find the cover (in all its coloured glory, isn’t it gorgeous?) and the product description. No retailer links yet because the book hasn’t shipped there yet. (N’aaaw. I was hoping it had. I’m using Smashwords’ preorder beta option. But I’ll update the book page when they’re up and make a new post! It’ll just be a little less grand-looking.)
Anyway! Onwards to the book! :O
Coming November 1st, 2013
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.
(The collection is roughly 96,500 words long, give or take how you count them. Excited! Er, I am. I am excited. And next weekend is the readathon! Whoot! Good week is being had.)
