Welcome to September, crew - and a happy Labor Day to you!
It gives me great pleasure to share the release of C.D. Coffelt's (aka, The Huntress's) debut fantasy novel, Wilder Mage - check it out!
Justus Aubre is a wilder. A mage unbound to the Imperium, and therefore a dangerous wild card in their eyes. The Imperium wants him, wants his power, but Justus has hidden for many years and now has some semblance of a normal life.
All that’s about to change when Sable Rounds walks through the door of his antique shop, looking for work. Justus instantly knows what Sable is, he just doesn’t know the danger he’s in.
Alone, also on the run from the Imperium, Sable longs for a normal life. For somewhere to belong. She finds this when Justus hires her, but she knows it’s temporary and fragile, an illusion. Though she hates to think about it, she knows that one day she will have to move on.
The Imperium is always behind her, waiting. When they finally find Sable, they find Justus. And all hell’s about to break loose.
It's so cool to see your first book out, C.D.! I knew it would happen and I'm glad you never gave up on the writing scene. Good luck!

Now for some news. I have plenty of people to thank for what I'm about to say, but big props must go out to Natalie Collins for her help after the Woven situation hit the news. Thanks to her help, all of your help, and after carefully considering offers of representation, I'm happy to report that our book has a champion; we have an agent!
May I introduce the amazing Meredith Bernstein from the Meredith Bernstein Literary Agency Inc! She took it upon herself to drop what she was doing, check out our story, and fall in love with the world that we've created, and that's exactly what we were looking for!
Team Woven just got bigger! We'll find a new home for our novel soon. I'll be sure to keep you updated on any developments.
Without your help, this wouldn't have been possible. Thank you!

It's been a while since I gave a much-deserved Shout-Out to our newest members of the Cosmic Crew, and here they are! Do me a favor and pay their sites a visit. It would sure make my day!

Updates: I'm up to date on the reading and editing for the Christmas Anthology I've been working on, and I've got to tell you, it's going to be a sweet collection of Yule Tide tales! Our team captain should be announcing the details in the coming month or so. Now I'm back to reading and writing, and September will be dedicated to finishing The Undead Road - for real this time! 20K words to go. Let's do it!
Be sure to click back for new posts, including the 2nd anniversary of Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writers Support Group! See you then! Also, if any of you are planning on hitting Salt Lake Comic Con this week, I'll be there Friday and Saturday. Good luck finding me, though - some 25K tickets were sold. Sounds like it's gonna be crowded!
Doesn't C.D.'s book sound cool? What's your plans for September? Anyone know how to remove the foundation of a fence post?
I'm David, and when they find Sable, they find Justus ...
