Hi guys! I was going to use this blog post to do a cover reveal for A TIME TRAVELLER’S BEST FRIEND, but I’m doing this instead. (Sorry. But that post will be coming on Wednesday).
A little while ago (last year some time) I agreed to be part of a boxed set of Noblebright stories with CJ Brightley, a lovely person and awesome author who has among her books a Labyrinth-inspired tale. That boxed set, LUMINOUS, is now a reality, and is on preorder for August 1st. I haven’t yet finished reading all the books in it, but the ones I have read are awesome. My WOLFSKIN is included, as in Intisar Khanani’s SUNBOLT, which should give you a general idea of the kind of feel to this particular Noblebright set.
Also, the preorder price is $2.99 USD. I mean, $2.99, guys. It has ten books in it. So excuse me while I get to reading.
Below is the (gorgeous) cover by Jenny at Seedlings Designs, and a blurb and general run-down of the books in LUMINOUS. You can preorder LUMINOUS at Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes.
Dare to step into lands of myths, magic, and monsters, because there is light to be found in even the darkest of places.
Now, ten fantasy authors have come together to offer this epic boxed set of noblebright fantasy! Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to explore ten unique worlds, fall in love with gallant heroes and heroines, and discover the chinks in the darkness where the light shines through.
What is Noblebright fantasy?
Set apart by a sense of hope, noblebright fantasy includes at least one character who, although flawed, still deliberately pursues goodness. And that goodness has the power to make a difference. In a noblebright story, even villains are not without hope. Their redemption isn’t guaranteed, of course, but it is a possibility.
This boxed set includes:
