Tales of Blood & Light, Book Three, STERLING, is on its way! The official publication date is June 27th, 2016, one year after THE GANTEAN (Book One).
Sterling is a lighter, romantic story that tracks events in Lethemia after the conclusions of THE GANTEAN and THE CEDNA (Book Two). Readers of the series may recognize Sterling for her supporting roles in both earlier books–she is the younger daughter of House Ricknagel who has been shunned by most of Lethemian high society because of a sprawling birthmark covering half her face. Learn more about the book here or here.
You may be interested to know this tidbit about all the ToB&L covers: each one has a dominant color, which is the color of the narrator’s aetherlight. Readers will know that aetherlight is sort of like one’s aura, the essential energy that feeds a person in the layer of magic. Each print edition of the book also has a tag line on its back cover that reveals an element or substance that was a guiding principle in the creation of the lead character.
You can pre-order the ebook now from Amazon. If you want to pre-order a print edition (to know what Sterling’s guiding element is!) please contact LCP or Emily directly.
Also, adding the book to your “want to read shelf” on Goodreads is a great, no-commitment way to help it get a little visibility before it is out.
It’s here! It’s here! Today is the day! The Gantean is available!
You can get it in ebook form immediately on Amazon, and you can order print versions from either CreateSpace or Amazon. Local Marin readers can get exclusive signed and doodled copies at Flow Studio in Fairfax. Remember, books make great gifts, and you can even send ebooks as gifts via email.

Our next publication, an epic fantasy by Emily June Street, The Gantean, will be coming out on June 27, 2015. Stay tuned for more details in upcoming weeks.
After she is violently kidnapped from her stark existence on the cold island of Gante, Leila must learn to survive in a southern culture her native people hate. She has no choice but to adapt to a foreign new world. In this lush, intricate society, exotic temptations greet her at every turn, including a dangerous love affair with a forbidden man. When civil war threatens, Leila is forced to choose between southern love and northern rituals.
But at what price?
Her choice may have widespread consequences even she cannot predict.
The Gantean has been called “epic and unforgettable” and “lush and lyrical,” by advance readers. It’s a woman-centered epic that introduces the fantasy world of Lethemia and is the first installment in the Tales of Blood & Light series.
