Tis the Season to Make Moves

Spring is here! Finally. An Alberta winter tends to linger like a relative who “just dropped by.”

New energy abounds: an army of worm hunting robins have taken over the yard, buds are shyly appearing on branches, and even the soggy brown ground seems to be ready for a dash of color.  Life is preparing to make a major move.  And so am I.

My author-self has awoken from hibernation. The sequel to Daughter of Shadow is ready (nearly). ARC’s have been distributed and the cover is being sketched out. Meanwhile, DoS has been garnering some attention. A review from IndieReader:

“In DAUGHTER OF SHADOW, a must-read for all fantasy lovers, the world is splintered into light and dark and a young female warrior struggles to choose a side.  Author Tyler Sehn takes great pains to lay out a richly detailed realm of magic, monstrous creatures, and political upheaval. ”

DoS was also entered in the Global Ebook Awards—winners announced in August. Lastly, DoS is currently available in a Goodreads Giveaway (April 25-May 25) so follow the link for a chance to win a free, autographed copy.

Goodreads Giveaway Winners

The month-long contest has ended! A total of 2014 people entered and 850 added Daughter of Shadow to their reading lists.

Word of mouth is a crucial influencer of book sales so I enrolled in the process to spread the word and now it’s up to the mouths to do the rest. Goodreads is a top-notch site/community and I may have to spend more time there. The contest was open to the world and the random generator took that detail to heart, with the five winners hailing from Canada, India, Germany, Great Britain, and Romania.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Giveaway! Time for me to go mail some books.
