This post breaks over a year’s worth of silence here (outside of a few Anecdotes posted to make my father happy on his birthday!). There have been a lot of changes in my life. People who follow me closely likely already know the story. Those of you who don’t can use your powers of observation to draw some conclusions, or you can ask me. I have lived in Appleton, WI for over 1 year now, and I am pleased to announce that I have gone into business with some truly wonderful people here. I am proud to be part of more »
Computer messages that shouldn’t be annoying any sane person right now– and here I am, having to schedule a restart for 9:15 AM (when I’ll be at work in the morning) so I can keep pecking at my keyboard undisturbed until I finally drag myself to bed when the creatively-exhausted stupor sets in– if I drag myself to bed at all tonight. I love my brain, I love watching this process of expressing ideas and stories unfold, but I do wish it were willing to show some sympathy to MY schedule, which pays the bills. Don’t let anyone tell you more »
With The Seven Wars concluded, I am looking forward to focusing on my new project– an adult fantasy series, The Alkesh. I added a new menu tab for the series a while back, which you may have noticed. You will also find the working prologue on the page for the first book. I added some additional illustrations this evening, and plan on being more active with posting updates about my work on this project. I’m very excited about it, and look forward to sharing it with you! The manuscript of the first book, The Rose of Avigdell, is almost done and ready to pass into more »
Below is the transcript of a talk I gave at England Run Library on April 12, 2015. You can download the accompanying slides here. — Hello, my name is Elanor Hope Kindred, otherwise known as E. H. Kindred, author of The Seven Wars series, artist, and graphic designer. When I agreed to do this presentation, I’d originally thought I would give you all the usual shpeel about writing, polishing your work, researching publishing options, marketing yourself… but I’ve talked about that a lot in the past few years. My first book came out in 2012, and since then, I’ve given more »
Hello all! As of this morning, book three of The Seven Wars is now available in trade paperback and Kindle edition! I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I do. It’s rather a turning point in The Somadàrsath work, as it is the story that changes Etheria and our dear characters forever. In doing so, it sets the stage for the epic stories yet to come and lays the foundation for just about every major event in The Seven Wars that is yet to follow. Don’t miss out!
