I've been thrilled to share my Sun-Blessed Trilogy with the world, and recently I decided the story needed to be expanded. I'm nearly done with a prequel called Birth of Magic.

It's a novella (a short book, about 30% the length of Facing the Sun), and it's full of characters I think you'll adore. 

While Birth of Magic takes place in the same world as the trilogy, you can read it before or after the other books.

In the Sun-Blessed Trilogy, Kari is a nearly mythical figure, honored as the First Midwife. But before she was a legend, she was a teenager fighting for her life, her self-worth, and her child. This is her story.

I'll be providing the e-book version absolutely free, and knowing people can read it for free, I haven't been sure whether I should publish paperback copies. So it's up to you! If you'd like a paperback copy of Birth of Magic on your bookshelf,  let me know your interest by backing the Kickstarter!

Thanks for supporting indie authors!

Risks and challenges

It's hard to pinpoint exactly how long it will take to prepare the book for sale, including more revisions/editing and getting the paperback cover. Once I order the paperbacks, it will take up to a couple of weeks for me to receive them. I will ship via Media Mail, which can take a couple of weeks or more to arrive.

I hope to ship your books in February, but I've set March as the target in case of unforeseen delays.
