Writing Update for July 2021

A lot of exciting news from Emerald Cove today. First and foremost: John and my new fantasy novel Prophecy’s Malignant Son is now for sale on Amazon. You can find it at: Amazon.com: Prophecy’s Malignant Son: A high fantasy novel eBook: Ruff, Susan and John: Books

The book is available in both paperback and Kindle format. Here is the back cover blurb:

The Prophecy of Lenar promises that a glorious ruler will arise to replace the dying monarch of Aullor. Fabren Lacalian, the half-human apprentice of a dead wizard, knows the terrible truth underlying that promise. That truth murdered his master and, if revealed, could destroy Fabren’s life. Fleeing in terror, he encounters Daraline Graciel, the archivist who first uncovered the prophecy in an ancient tome. Working together, they must stop the prophecy’s deadly march across the land. For corruption has already spread to the royal capital and the situation grows more desperate by the day.

The second piece of good news is that Emerald Cove’s writing critique group is back to live meetings again. We will gather at our favorite Denny’s tonight after more than a year apart. The Zoom meetings during the pandemic were helpful, but nothing replaces actually sitting around a table and talking about books. I can’t wait to see everyone again!

Emerald Cove’s shared world anthology is nearing completion. I’ll probably know more after the meeting tonight, but the last time I spoke with Sue, the cover art was coming along well. While we don’t have an official day for publication yet, we’re getting there.

And finally, John and I have started working on our next novel. More details to come in future posts.

Talk to you next Friday!
