The Story Between The Stories #002 – Our New Author…and Pricing

There are two good reasons for me to post another Sudden Insight Publishing blog the week after starting this column. One is that we have been working with a new author on getting her first book together, and today is release day! The other is an outgrowth of that, a conversation that we had when it came time to look at pricing. Let’s start with the exciting news… Read more

Indie Author Spotlight – The Crown of Stones: Magic-Borne Cover Reveal

He’s paid for his addiction. He’s been scarred by his spells. He’s borne magic’s weight, its pleasure, and its guilt. But will he surrender to it when the realm needs him most?
Magic-Borne, the final installment of C.L. Schneider’s epic fantasy trilogy, The Crown of Stones, is almost here! The Crown of Stones follows the trials of Ian Troy; a man struggling with an inborn addiction to magic in a world where magic is reviled, not revered.

The cover of Magic-Borne was designed by artist Alan Dingman.

January News and Updates

2016 is starting off with a bang at Sudden Insight Publishing headquarters. We have several projects in the works at the moment, and thought you’d like to know just what we’re up to…

We’re getting ready to release our very first anthology, Paws for a Tale, on January 29th. This volume includes eight short stories that tie-in to a series or book that each author has previously published, but every single tale stands on its own. It’s a great way to get a little taste of what these authors write, as well as help a deserving charity. All profits from this book will be donated to the SPCA, as our way of saying thank you for all of the wonderful things they do for abused animals.

Paws for a Tale – Update and Cover Reveal

We’ve been hard at work getting the very first Sudden Insight Publishing charity anthology ready, and are so very pleased to finally be able to announce the release date (as well as the title)!

Paws for a Tale will be released in ebook format on January 29th, 2016. Inside it’s electronic pages you will find eight short stories from eight indie authors – Linda Deane, Adam Dreece, Beth Gualda, David M. Kelly, Megan O’Russell, Michael R. Stern, L.G. Surgeson, and our very own J.K. Norry. Each story is a little glimpse into the world of a book or series the author has already published, but never fear; every single tale stands on it’s own. We’re incredibly pleased with this set of stories, and we think you will be as well.

All profits from Paws for a Tale will be going to the SPCA (If you don’t know why we picked this charity, read Jay’s blog posts here and here).

And now, let’s get to that cover, shall we?

Indie Author Spotlight – Megan O’Russell and her new book, “Nuttycracker Sweet”

Author: Megan O’Russell
Book: Nuttycracker Sweet
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Fiery Seas Publishing
Release Date: December 8, 2015

Nuttycracker

Pointe shoes, tutus, and a snowy road trip with the man she hates. What could possibly go wrong?

The plan was simple. Get to Portland, dance The Nutcracker, and don’t murder your dance partner. And most definitely, do not, under any circumstances, fall in love with him.

A snowy road trip strands Elle Grant in a tiny cabin better suited for serial killings than rehearsals for two professional ballet dancers. With no one but the incredibly talented, excruciatingly handsome, and notoriously terrible Zachary Benson and a few taxidermy woodland creatures for company, Elle’s Christmas plans are officially ruined. Can she and Zach learn to like each other enough to dance together? And can Elle get home without losing her heart to the Christmas Cavalier?

About the Author:

Megan is thrilled to be working with Fiery Seas Publishing! Her other published works include Young Adult fantasy novels The Tethering and The Siren’s Realm. Megan is also a featured author in the Athena’s Daughters 2 anthology of women in speculative fiction.

Megan is a professional performer who travels the country living out a thousand lives on stage. Her wonderful husband and frequent dance partner is always by her side.
