My very first novel, The Eldermaid, is now available for purchase via the Createspace store and on Kindle.
Once, it is said, the Powers—the five deities who rule over Love, War, Knowledge, Nature, and Death—walked the land.
But now They are gone, entrusting the guardianship of the world to the many spirits that live in it. These spirits of flame and sea, of tree and metal and storm form bonds with chosen humans, strengthening humanity’s ties with the land.
In this world, bereft of the Powers that created it, a young girl bonds with a spirit of the elder tree. All is not right with the world, however; and it will be up to these two companions to survive an invisible war of conflicting ideologies in which politics, religion, love, and jealousy are major players.
The Eldermaid is a coming-of-age tale about friendship, political wrangling, religion, absent deities, strange spirit companions, and badass queer ladies.
Includes the bonus story “The Genesis of House Hilluck”.
The Eldermaid was a NaNoWriMo 2012 winner.
Please feel free to pass this around to whomever might be interested.
