A New Day: Chapter 2

A New Day: Chapter two is now posted.
https://rebeccashelley.wordpress.com/d…/a-new-day-chapter-2/

Here's an excerpt:

Devaj rested his hand on the swarabat. “I intend to disguise myself as a human minstrel and travel around Navgarod singing and playing and staying out of trouble until Elkatran returns and is confident that I have made myself into a good enough person to be worthy of his bond. When he invites me back to him, then I will return.”
“Navgarod, hiding as a human,” Kanvar said. “That’s a long way from home.” He didn’t like the sound of it and wasn’t sure Amar would like it either, but his brother was a free man. He had the right to go wherever he wished.
“I don’t have a home,” Devaj snapped, and a fire kindled in his eyes. “Stonefountain is my home. The one place I want to be and the only place in this world I should never be allowed to go.”

Happy New Year!


A new Day cover 2 small

Hi all, Happy New Year!

It’s 2016 and I’m all set to have the best year ever. I have a special treat for readers of my Dragonbound series. I’ve written a sequel to the series that comes chronologically after Dragonbound IX: Great Blue Liberator. I can’t say much about the new book, Dragonbound: A New Day, without giving spoilers for books 7, 8, and 9. I’ll just say that I heard back from a number of readers that they wanted a book from Devaj’s point of view. They were also curious about the fate of Lord Theodoric’s crippled son. A New Day is meant to address both those things.

.
Best news of all, A New Day is going to be published serially a chapter or so at a time every Monday on my website where it can be accessed and read for free. Later, it will be published as a complete book by Wonder Realms Books.

A New Day chapter 1 can be found HERE. Hope you enjoy it.

Bees in My Butt on sale

I'm excited about this promotion because it's geared to one of my favorite audiences: middle-grade readers! I've always been passionate about books written for kids ages 9 through 12. Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Fablehaven, Diary of a Wimpy Kid... all excellent. :-) I wrote Bees in My Butt when my son, Matthew, who was 10 at the time, hated reading and needed something short and funny to keep his attention. The title comes from something Matthew said when he was younger. He had flatulance and told me, "Mommy, I have bees in my butt." Bees in My Butt premiered as an ebook December 2010 and went to #2 on the Barnes & Noble children's ebook list where it stayed for a very long time. Since then it has become a favorite of many young readers.
I dedicate this promotion to him and to all other readers who love and are searching for books written for middle graders!
The Multi-Author Middle-Grade Book Promotion starts January 4, 2016 and ends January 7, 2016.

Chasing Pirates in Never Land



My novella, Chasing Pirates in Never Land, which has been out of print for a little while is now included in the Concealed: United! Box Set #2, along with books by the fabulous authors Rachel Branton, Liz Adair, and Heather Justesen.


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NLLZFZ0/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00NLLZFZ0&linkCode=as2&tag=rachelcom-20&linkId=FZDQPBI7RRZGGILB

These stories have been donated by the authors for this box set to help author Rachel Ann Nunes, who in July 2014 had one of her copyrighted novels plagiarized and is now protecting those rights in a court battle. Her fight is not hers alone, and we are standing behind her with our work. Please help us send the message that plagiarizing is not okay. All proceeds will be donated toward legal costs. (Please note that another man has also come forward to confirm that his real-life combat veteran story was also stolen by the same person. Preventing this from happening again is our goal.)
