I’ve been teasing everyone about the next book in the Glimmer Vale Chronicles for a long time now. But no kidding, The Falconer’s Stairs is just about done. Finally. We’re targeting 15 April for the release. But in the meantime, I’ve another little morsel to tell everyone about.
I wrote a short story in the Glimmer Vale Chronicles world for an anthology that I ended up not participating in because of scheduling issues. It’s called Wedding Gifts, and it’s set between Robbed Blind and The Falconer’s Stairs. In light of the impending release of the next book, that story is now up for Pre-Order everywhere that it can be (for some reason, Barnes and Noble doesn’t let us do pre-orders yet). Release will be Wednesday, 15 March.
(Not a very extensive pre-order, I know. Does it really need to be, though?)
Here are the details:
It’s three hours until the wedding of Raedrick Baletier to Lani Millens, and Melanie Klemins doesn’t have a present for them. Not for lack of trying. She had an enchantment all ready to go for Raedrick’s new cloak, but one simple mistake sent the cloak flying away out the window under its own power.
So now it’s up to Julian Hinderbrook to find the cloak and retrieve it, or the wedding will be ruined and the couple’s magical day tarnished forever.
No pressure, right?
Wedding Gifts is a 4,600 word short story, about 15 printed pages. It is set between Books 4 and 5 of the Glimmer Vale Chronicles.
