The proof copy of AyaMayA by Ayam Yogi Abraxas arrived today

The cover done by Marantha D. Jenelle looks great, I am pleased with how it has turned out after the printing process. The only thing that needs fixing cover wise is getting the spine text bumped over a bit to look better centered on it.

As far as the interior, the text is nice and crisp, and very readable. The way it is set up should work decently for both low vision people like myself as well as those with better eyesight (something that I take into consideration for each book that goes through me). I have a few headings to fix though, I'm not quite happy with how they printed, and the interior artwork turned out a bit blurry, which also bothers me. So I will be fixing that and giving the book a thorough read through to look for anything that might have snuck through. Things look good so far though, I think the author is going to be very pleased with how it turns out.

Be watching for an announcement as to when it is ready for sale in both print and ebook! We are almost there.

Selkies' Skins Characters listing page and Art page, and a little about fan art

Since the character list in Kirsty's world is growing, I felt it might be useful for readers to post the story's current character list. Each character will eventually have his/her/its own page with bio.

The master Characters page can be found at this link, and will be updated as new characters or information is generated.

I've put up an art page as well, which will gather several images for the story into one location. Fanart is welcome and encouraged, so if you do some, send me a copy and/or a link to where you post it. Just remember, if you do fanart for the story, credit me as the author of the story and include a link to the story if you post your art somewhere.

I said on my livejournal and dreamwidth that I like how fan art lets me see how well the characters are forming in readers minds. This lets me see if perhaps I need to describe them more or more often in the story.

If you are a writer, how do you feel about fan art that's done for your stories? If you are a reader, what is your opinion about fan art?

Call of the Kami audiobook available

Call of the Kami has finally come to audiobook, available now on Amazon,, and iTunes.

It joins the Kindle format, Paperback on Amazon and Lulu (which still has the original edition), as well as Smashwords.

Selkies' Skins new installment information

I do not post about it as often here, but Selkies' Skins has been progressing in the webnovel format. The current installment, Chapter 21: Hunt (part three) can be read here for free, although donations to get an extra installment released for the posting period are appreciated. The full story will be available to purchase in ebook and print format later in the year.

The story updates bi-weekly normally, so a speeded up installment brings a post a week to both the Dreamwidth archive and the serial story site.
