Release Day - Dragon Magic
So I grew up on three genres: horror, romance, fantasy. In pretty much that order. Discounting when I was a toddler and used to pull my mom's Barbara Cartland's off the shelves and pretend to read, the earliest books I really really remember are the Stephen King stories my mom would read to us.
(I mean, I read all the usual suspects for my generation: Babysitter's Club, Sweet Valley, Boxcar Children, etc but they did not stick with me really)
When I was old enough my mom let me read her romance novels. And from there I bounced to fantasy. I spent a lot of years frustrated that I could almost never find books that COMBINED romance and fantasy.
But the TL;DR here is that I love fantasy with all my heart. And Dragon Magic is my love letter, I guess you could say, to the classic quest story that is the foundation of the fantasy genre (I even started with the classic No! My Beloved Peasant Village!).
It's four guys who are forced to go questing together, though with all my usual suspects: poly, queer characters, a trans character, lots of snarking.
There is also telepathy, which is something I am never doing again, especially when I'm writing a foursome and porn.
I'm immensely proud of it, and I hope my readers will enjoy it. You'll have to let me know which character is your favorite. My friend Isabella favors Mazhan, my wife likes Cemal, my heart belongs to Sule (which is easy to tell, he has fire magic, which is one of my favs).
And the beautiful cover, featuring Mahzan and the spooky hand that symbolizes all the trouble they'll face, was done by Phill Simpson.
I hope everybody is having a good week!
