Your input appreciated

Hi, friends.

My publisher has a blog where her writers contribute posts. Yesterday, she asked me to write a post for her blog. She specifically asked for something genre-specific. As I write fantasy stories, I need to write something about fantasy. But what?

Any suggestions? What would you want to read in a blog by your favorite fantasy writer? I'm playing with possibilities.

 

  • Romance in fantasy
  • Food in fantasy
  • Home in fantasy
  • Maps and landscapes
  • Were creatures

 

What else?

Thank you.

Goodbye Blogger, Hello Wordpress!

Yes, the title says it all– I'm moving from this blog to a brand new website. I'm still having challenges with Wordpress, so it's safe to say that what I've uploaded won't be the final website. I'd like to add a bunch of other features but as I've learned recently, Wordpress is very stubborn about what you can't and can't do. 

 

Anyway, the site is cleaner and a lot more organized, and I'm happy with it design wise! Check it out below!

 

AMY BRAUN AUTHOR

 

I will be keeping the blog open to redirect traffic, and potentially open my book shop. Once I understand more of what I have to do (website creation is not my forte), I'll keep everyone posted. Thanks for stopping by this final time!

 

Cheers!

 

Amy

Progress Report (And A New Collection Coming Soon!)

Things are finally moving forward for this author! The printed proofs are finally on the way for Midnight Sky, now that I know the limitations of Scrivener for print formatting. So note to anyone thinking about buying a paperback for Midnight Sky– you get some bonus content! I'll go more into it when I officially launch my new website next week. It will likely happen Monday (possibly Tuesday, depending on some other tweaks I want to do), and it's come together really well. The newsletter signup isn't quite ready yet (though I can't wait to do that), and the shop isn't ready, but I'm still very excited about its look. The blog will stay up to redirect traffic, but nothing new will be posted.

 

I'm definitely looking forward to the Midnight Sky promotions starting in July. I'm really excited for this novel and have heard some good feedback from early reviews, so hopefully the pre-order sales will go up. *hint hint wink wink nudge nudge look below*

 

 

There are secrets, there are betrayals, and there are sacrifices… 


The Behemoth has been destroyed, and the bloodthirsty Hellions seem to have left Westraven. But Claire Abernathy’s mind is not at ease. A terrible disease plagues her sister, appearing to have been brought on the Vesper, the leader of the Hellions beyond the tear between worlds– the Breach.

To save Abby and stop the Hellions for good, Claire must find the machine her parents built before the attacks, and fix it before the monsters return. To do so, she needs the help of her crew, and must ignore the secrets and rivalries between her captain and the man she saved.

Because the Hellions are not the only dangers following Claire. Twisted humans and old enemies surface to stop her and destroy all she loves. While she is determined to endure the trials, a single betrayal could shatter the hope of a better world, and force Claire to make a choice that will cost her dearly…

Now, updates on the new projects, since there's quite a bit. First, I'm super excited to announce that I'll be working with the wonderful team at Mocha Memoirs Press again. I was ecstatic when they emailed me with news that the four short stories I have published with them– Call From The Grave, Hotel Hell, Lost Sky, and the upcoming Engineered Deceit will be put together in a single collection! I've always wanted to do this, and to have it offered is nothing short of awesome. The collection will be called The Shadow Omnibus and is scheduled for an early September release in both ebook and paperback. I can't wait to see the result!

That's the most I have to say for now. I'm a little stuck in a scene for The Iron Gargoyle and might want to sneak a few minutes of editing in for Storm of the Gods before I have to go to the Real Job. There will be a couple more posts on the blog before I move to my new website, so stayed tuned for a little while longer!Cheers!Amy

Progress Report (And First Character Interview!)

It's been a little bit of a chaotic (though productive) week. I've started writing exclusively with Scrivener, and aside from some formatting issues, I really enjoy it. I'm still fiddling with the paperback version of  Midnight Sky, though I hope to have it sorted out by the end of the week or early next week. I really want it in my hands!

 

Onto the cool stuff. As part of the Damnation's Door release, I did my first ever character interview! It was way more fun than I expected. It was nice to get inside Constance's mind again.

 

 

Demons are free. Angels are fallen. Hope is dying...


Constance Ramirez and her adopted sister, Andromeda, have stopped Lucifer’s plan– They have closed the Heaven Gate and kept the demons out. But their choice came with brutal consequences, and now every angel on earth is trapped in their mortal body.

All that remains is closing the Hell Gate and establishing a balance once and for all. That means returning to the city of Constance’s nightmares, which has become a haven for murderers and monsters. But even more dangerous than their hunt is that Andromeda’s powers and instincts are turning darker, and this time Constance doesn’t know how to protect her.

Constance is ready to fight for her life, but her enemies have plans she can’t begin to imagine, and they’re prepared to make her suffer...

Trust is lost and hearts are broken in the epic conclusion in Amy Braun’s Cursed trilogy...

I really can't wait to start the promos for Midnight Sky. It's going to be a lot of fun setting up all the blog tours, reviews, and giveaways. I had so much fun writing this novel and can't wait to share it.

As far as usual writing goes, I'm still searching for time to edit Storm of the Gods so I can send it to my editor. I dread all the work that will go into it, but I look forward to sending out the final product. The Iron Gargoyle is also going great. I'm still toying with ideas and the world and haven't finish some of the details, but I'm learning more about the world the more that I write it. 

 

That's all I've got to share for now. I admit I'm rushing a little since I want to get writing, but what can I say? It's part of the job! 

 

Cheers!
