Super Series Spotlight in June

Narnia, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Inheritance Cycle, The Lunar Chronicles, Game of Thrones ….

Who loves a series?

Well, I know I do.

There is something immersive in a series. It allows the reader to stay in the world longer, savour it’s unique flavour, to get to know its cast of characters, to feel like you belong.

This June a number of authors have banded together to offer an introduction to exciting speculative fiction series. D L Richardson’s Welcome to the Apocalypse, Mirren Hogan’s The Magic of Isskasala series and other great spec fic titles.

Stories from Nardva

I’m thrilled to have some of my works included:

The Herbalist’s Daughter, story 1 in Tamrin Tales.  A YA fantasy romance story set in the Golden Palace of Tarka some  years before the start of the Akrad’s Legacy series. Anna has her heart set on the young guard at the Palace but he seems not to notice her until her young charge stirs up trouble. Download from here .

Heart of the Mountain: a short novella  – book one in the Under the Mountain series. Twins Delvina and Retza’s greatest desire is to be accepted as Prentices by their parents’ old crew when they stumble across a stranger, Zadeki. Soon the glimmer lights begin to fail. Will the three youngwuns work together to save the underground realm? Download from Amazon here or here.

And now presenting – the sequel to Heart of the Mountain, Blood Crystal is due to be released at the end of this month.

YA Fantasy Adventure in the lost realm Under the Mountain – Book 2

The underground realm is under attack from mad Overseer Uzza and the Crystal Heart is failing. As things become desperate, Twins Delvina and Retza must brave a treacherous journey to seek help from Zadeki and his people.

Will they find the answers they seek before it’s too late? Is the blood of Uzza’s children the only way to restore the Crystal Heart? What are the twins prepared to do to save their realm and those they love from certain destruction?

Blood Crystal is the second novella in the Under the Mountain series. Like most of my fiction, it is set in the world of Nardva. Available from Amazon, Kobo, Nook and other retailers from 30th June 2017.

Cover Reveal

I’m also thrilled to announce the cover reveal of Like a Woman anthology – a speculative fiction anthology with profits donated to survivors of domestic abuse.

Like a Woman follows on from Like a Girl anthology which supported girl’s education. Both have covers by the talented Drusilla Morgan. The anthology is still open for submissions and should be published later this year or early 2018.

  1. Wow, you’ve been busy Jenny. I really enjoyed The Herbalist’s Daughter and Heart of the Mountain. And the sneak peek I’ve had at Blood Crystal shows that it’s just as good, if not better, than Heart of the Mountain. I’ll look forward to the official launch. I love the way you’ve created such an intricate world and then set other stories in the same world at different times and places. I’m currently working on an historical novel and I don’t think I realised how much work the research would take. I’m already thinking of some ideas for shorter stories for some of the minor characters, so that I can maximise all that work. You’ve set a great example.

    • Thanks Nola. I’ve had a lot of fun writing this year and super-thrilled that Blood Crystal is about to be launched. There is some great reading in the Super Series Spotlight too 🙂

      It’s been fun exploring the different threads of the storyworld. And I think writing some short stories in your novel’s historical period and place is a fantastic idea. Look forward to reading them – and your novels 🙂

  2. Jeanette, you’re a writing machine! Amazed and thrilled at the momentum you’re gaining. Having just read ‘Blood Crystal’, I can’t wait to get my hands on some more of your work.

    • I’ve had fun writing this year. Glad you enjoyed the read 🙂 I’ve got a few other stories coming out in anthologies this year, so will keep you posted 🙂

  3. Congratulations on all your successful writing, Jenny! I’ve been plodding along on one project most of this year. Are any of yours out in print? You certainly set an inspiring example.

    • Looking forward to seeing it when you’ve finished, Jeanette.

      All my published stories are still available through Amazon and/or other venues though I have a few that are due to be published this years and others that are waiting in the wings for their turn in the sun 🙂

    • Thanks Christine. Would love you to have a read, though I understand about the mountainous and every growing to-read pile.
