I have been remiss in my duties as an author who like, promotes her work. Because I have three books coming out this fall. ANYWAY, turns out that’s four books. Because there’s this little anthology:
They say you can never go home again…
Join us within these pages for all-new stories of heroes whose journeys have ended; whose quests and missions have been won—or lost—as they discover the fate of the people and places they’d left behind.
With masterful tales by:
Fanny Valentine Darling
Erin M. Evans
Larry C. Kay
Deborah J. Ross
Andrea G. Stewart
James L. Sutter
Chris Wong Sick Hong
My story is called “The Last of the Unicorn Hunters.” (Fun fact: that was the original title of Rampant. See? Nothing is ever lost.) It is set in the 1800s, soon after the famous “last battle” between Clothilde and Bucephalus, and is about a middle-aged, retired unicorn hunter named Jane.
That’s right, this is not a YA. Alert the presses!
Jane has had a bit of a rough time of it, like so many hunters injured in the line of duty. Those of you who have read Ascendant know that death isn’t the only bad thing that can happen to a unicorn hunter, and that was something I wanted to explore from a long-range perspective. Astrid is sixteen–what does the rest of her life look like?
So that’s my story. And there are twenty more in the book (and eight bonus stories more in the ebook). I ended up in this anthology after meeting one of the editors, Gabrielle Harbowy, at Dragon*Con in 2012. Turns out, she’s a big fan of killer unicorns. And here we are.
Here’s how you can purchase the book:
$7.99 on Kindle, and you can get a kindle (i.e.) .mobi version for $5.99 at Getonic. The paperback is $16.35 on Amazon, and $14.36 at Barnes & Noble. There is no Nook version available on that site, but you can get an ebook version for $5.99 at the aforementioned Getonic.
