New serial! New story!
The Poet’s Eye is about a red-headed farm boy who steals a magical amulet to keep his family from killing each other for it—again. Giving up all he knows to protect them isn’t too big a sacrifice. Too bad it turns out to be a hoax, especially since a magical amulet would be real handy about the time an inhuman horde begins to invade. So now he’s partners with a notorious sorcerous highwaywoman and facing down a legendary threat, and they have to stop an evil queen who is saving thousands of lives.
“Surely that’s a typo, Laura — you meant they have to stop an evil queen who is ending thousands of lives.”
I said what I said.
Pro tip: Buying Vella tokens on Amazon’s site is a better value than buying on the iPhone app, so you can read more with the same money with a website purchase.
Pro tip #2: Vella access is per episode, while World Anvil via Patreon offers full access to all published episodes.
And yes, it will be published as a novel once the serial is complete! The serial format is for those who want it first. ;-)
The Poet’s Eye is one feature of my brand-new Patreon, also just opened. You can check out the other rewards at the link.
I’m at this Realm Makers conference, speaking on a panel on Saturday and hanging out all weekend. Say hello if you’re in the area!
