Thank You

Thank you to every reader who has read and reviewed and fallen in love with The Queen of the Realm of Faerie series. Your encouragement and support has meant the world to me. In the almost eighteen months since the first book was released,  I've learned so much, and as I've prepared to release the next installment of the series, I've reviewed some of the original publishing decisions we made. As a result, all the books have been currently unpublished. I know that's a little crazy, but I really believe the changes we're currently making to the series will make it better!

Sometime around April 1, we're hoping to release Half Faerie, Daughter of Light Book  One. Although the story will essentially be the same, there will be some new scenes, especially at the beginning of the book, and the entire book will be re-edited. We'll also have new covers.

We'd like to offer anyone who's purchased Nandana's Mark and/or The Flower of Isbelline gift copies of the new single edition. However, we'll only be able to offer the free books for a limited time, tentatively the week of March 23-29th. So if you've purchased Nandana's Mark and/or The Flower of Isbelline and would like to take advantage of this offer, please email either a receipt of one of the books or a picture of one of the books on your reading device to heidi _ g @ comcast . net with your preferred digital format, Kindle, Nook, Kobo, or other android device.

Soon after Half Faerie is published, we'll be publishing Half Mortal, Daughter of Light, Book 2. If you've purchased The Dragon Carnivale, we'd like to offer you a deep discount on this book when it is published, as Half Mortal will include the story originally told in The Dragon Carnivale along with the next installment in the series. If you'd like to be notified of the time period when you can purchase Half-Mortal at the discounted price, please sign up for my newsletter or send an email directly to heidi _ g _ @ comcast . net.

This entire project has truly been a labor of love. Daughter of Light is inspired by my beloved grandma, and if it weren’t for my desire to create something that would leave readers feeling the way I felt whenever I left her home—eyes brighter, heart open wider—I suspect I would have been content to leave the original published version alone. But she, and everyone who invests their time in reading the series, deserves the best, and for that reason, I'm very excited about these upcoming releases.
