I feel like this month (year?) has been such a whirlwind of announcements and big news and important developments, so much so that when I say I have *BIG NEWS* it might run the risk of falling flat, given the flurry of new books and special editions and all of the other wonderful things that have been in the making.

With that disclaimer, I have some *seriously* incredible news. I've just been picked up by Italia Gandolfo, CEO of Gandolfo Helin & Fountain Literary Management. Italia has over 25 years’ experience in media between a big 4 Hollywood Talent & Literary Agency, Publishing, PR/Advertising, and Film in Los Angeles and New York.

What this means is that my tiny little empire of books, which I have worked tirelessly to build over these past 5 years, now has the opportunity to explore different, bigger, more exciting avenues of distribution. I can't say for sure what that will look like without speculating or jinxing anything, but I can say that I am incredibly excited and hopeful about the future! It's been a long, arduous, and incredibly rewarding journey up until this point, and to those of you who have been here since the beginning, and those of you who are just now hopping aboard, thank you so, so much for your support!

Stick around, because something tells me this journey is just the beginning of the adventure! ❤️

Holy smokes, guys - we did it! Thanks to all of your support, we've now unlocked temporary rune tattoos for EVERYONE, 3 more full-page illustrations (for 13 total!!), AND a built-in ribbon bookmark! I never thought we would get this far!! As part of my heartfelt thanks, and to honor those followers who have expressed special interests in fantasy maps, I am decreasing the next stretch goal from $40k to $35k. I don't know about you all, but I have never seen such a stunning, colorful map in a fantasy book, and to be able to print it even larger, in vibrant HD color...well, let's just say, I *really* want to make this happen for us!

So there you have it! Three stretch goals unlocked, with a fourth nigh in sight! BTW, that "surprise" reward at $40k is shaping up to be something REALLY, REALLY, special. If you know anyone who would love portal fantasy with snark, steam, Yiddishisms, and heart, please consider sharing this gilded yumminess with them!

Lastly, I wanted to share this incredible project from my friend and urban fantasy idol, Annette Marie. While her Kickstarter certainly needs no help from me, it's one of the most beautiful and high-quality fantasy Kickstarters I've seen in a very long time. If stories like Mulan, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings are your jam, you've got to check out this incredible campaign, which funded within minutes of going live! I for one can't wait to get my copy!

[Be sure to scroll to the bottom!]

WE DID IT!!! In just three days, we have funded, annihilated Stretch Goal #1 (temporary rune tattoos for all), and sailed right past Stretch Goal #2 (MORE full page illustrations)!!! That brings us to THIRTEEN full-color illustrations - 3 key scenes per book, plus a bonus illustration for book 4!! Any guesses as to what those scenes might be?

Up next, Stretch Goal #3: built-in ribbon bookmarks!!! We have metallic options, as well as two-toned options. I'd love to hear your thoughts on ribbon colors below!

PS, following The Brief but Explosive War of Gold and Rainbows that occurred earlier this week, I am incredibly excited to announce that protective slipcovers will now match the book you've selected. In other words, gold-foiled books get gold-foiled slipcovers, and rainbow-foiled books will get rainbow-foiled slipcovers!

HUZZAH for successful (and gorgeous) peace treaties!!!!

(In case you missed it, you can now select rainbow foil/edges as an add-on, meaning gold-lovers get gold and rainbow-lovers get rainbow!)
