Back in 2010, I was halfway through writing The Sleeping Life when I decided to embark on self-publishing my backlist, so I set it aside and distracted myself thoroughly in other worlds. It's a pleasure to come back to this one - although, typically, by the time I had reached the end of this I had thought of at least three other stories I'd like to write in this world! TOO MANY BOOKS TO WRITE!
The cover, as many of you probably already know, is by Julie Dillon (and is so gorgeous).
Anyway, for my blog readers, here are Smashwords 50% off coupon codes not only for TSL, but for SGM if you don't have it already. Although TSL is technically a self-contained plot, it is so bound up in the aftermath of SGM that I really don't recommend trying to read it as a standalone. The coupons are good until 14 February.
Stained Glass Monsters: FE73P
The Sleeping Life: VY77R
Fallon DeVries has a sister who lives only in his mind. Paying the price of magic gone wrong, Aurienne is trapped watching a world she cannot touch, only able to communicate with her brother while he sleeps.
And it's slowly killing him.
Fallon and Auri's best chance of untangling their lives is to win the help of a mage of unparalleled ability. But how can they ask for help when the warped spell prevents him from speaking?
Besides, Rennyn Claire - once the most powerful mage in the world - is a shadow of her former self: ill, injured and unlikely to recover unless she can hunt down the monster who once tried to make her his slave. But that Wicked Uncle is nowhere to be found, and other dangers, once slumbering dormant, are stirring...
