Some News!

Great news, everyone! Received an email from my editor yesterday: Amethyst Epiphany is scheduled to come out in October. I’m excited! Yet I’m also nervous. A lot of work to do marketing wise, at least. My editor would like to me to double my social media followers both in April and in May.

So if you and any of your friends are interested in following my writing endeavors please feel free to friend me on facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/authorlindamcrate. You can also add me on twitter: thysilverdoe. These are the social media outlets I’m to target the most. However, I am  also on tumblr: http://thysilverdoe.tumblr.com/, deviantart: http://thysilverdoe.deviantart.com/, linked in: www.linkedin.com/pub/linda-crate/70/580/19a/. The purpose, of course, is to reach as many possible people as I can.

So feel free to follow me any of these places if you’d like to know more about me and my upcoming novel. I’m pretty shy, but I’m friendly. At least on line. In person you may have to pull my teeth to get me over my awkwardness, but I’m more social than I used to be. 

Get ready to swim with the mermaids, fly with the fan, and swoon over the elves among other things. 😉 Did I mention I’m pretty excited? I can’t wait for you to get my book, and I hope that you all enjoy the start of the journey. It’s a trilogy. 

Mermaids Vs. Faeries

Amethyst Epiphany is the debut of my Bound By Color trilogy. As I’m sure you’ve come to notice by now it centers around my fae girl Calliope Griffin and the relationships she makes in her father’s country. She struggles from going from ordinary girl to finding herself to be a fae princess and all the responsibilities that come along with it.

Well, lately I’ve been thinking a lot of the mermaids I’ve included in that series. I have ideas, but I’m not entirely sure if I’ll act on them or not. But I do have a bit of something rattling in my mind for a spin-off series tied to the Bound By Color trilogy that centers around my mermaids since they aren’t the prominent characters of these books.

I was thinking of having appearances and mentions of Calliope and the land-dwelling company from time to time but centering on Lyssandra who is the first mermaid Calliope meets in Amethyst Epiphany, and her first true friend from her father’s country.

For now, however, I am trying to stay focused and continue my work on the Bound by Color Trilogy. I keep getting scenes from the third book, but I’m not finished with the first. I might have to write these scenes down and even start on the third book before going back to the second which sounds very backward to me, but my mind isn’t being too cooperative so it may be the way I have to go. We shall certainly see.

My question is if you had to pick would you be: a mermaid or merman or a fae?
