BIG NEWS: The Magic Most Foul finale serializes HERE next month!
Magic Most Foul fans! You don't have to wait until November to get your fix on the next Gothic, Victorian, fantastical and paranormal adventures of Lord Denbury and Natalie Stewart! You can start NEXT MONTH! March 5th I am embarking on a new venture that is a very old venture indeed: serialization. Most Victorian era novelists serialized their fiction at some point into small pieces released in a number of weeks and months in various 19th century magazines. Charles Dickens' "Household Words" was home to many a famous story and novel serializing from one issue to the next. So what better to honour my Victorian tales but to serialize one?
Beginning next month, THE DOUBLE LIFE OF INCORPORATE THINGS, A Finale of Magic Most Foul will begin its first segment right here! For free! The goal is to have segments released consistently from March through November when the novel will then be available for sale in print and across digital platforms. If you think this is nifty, please consider donating to the cause. Donations will directly support this project; me, my editorial staff and the production staff that will be designing and formatting the electronic and print novels for sale. It takes a village to make a book. Any contributions at or above $20 will automatically receive a signed print copy of the novel in November, contributions of $50 or more will receive a signed novel and a limited edition 5 x 7 Magic Most Foul themed print by award-winning, multi-published fantasy illustrator Kelley Hensing. Just use the "Donate" button on the upper right sidebar and you'll automatically be added to the sponsor list at whatever level you choose, donations of any amount are appreciated to help the series reach as far as it can.
Think this is a nifty idea worth sharing? Tell your friends! We need as big of an audience as possible for the finale of Magic Most Foul! But don't let the word "finale" make you sad, this book is a launch cannon onto the next series! You'll see familiar faces and meet new ones who will be served up directly into my new saga THE ETERNA FILES releasing in 2014 from Tor / Macmillan! All my Victorian-set series are parallel worlds and they've only just begun entwining! More news about the second life of my STRANGELY BEAUTIFUL saga coming soon as well!
Happy haunting and we'll see you very soon to tell a harrowing tale!
