Speaking of Verglas, I reread the Snow Queen books and noticed that Tenebris’s last name, Malus, is Latin for bad. Did you do that on purpose?

I did, actually! 😀 I frequently use names that relate to the person/thing. For example, all the Legendary weapons from the Magic Knights of Sole are Italian words that reveal a lot about the weapon’s abilities.

Cool! I can’t believe I noticed that. Now I want to reread Sleeping Beauty 🙂

I can’t seem to remember how to get back to that sneak peak chapter of the frog prince. Does anyone remember where to find it?
Thanks!

Wasn’t it a bonus email one for doing a survey or something? Check your email!

It was but I can’t find the email anywhere! Just hoping someone has a link or can find it on the kmshea website (although I’ve looked all over the site and can’t find it).

Unfortunately it looks like it’s going to be delayed until early November. Fact checking all the characters put me seriously behind on my timeline. I’m glad I experienced it with Frog Prince, though, so I know to plan for the final book to take MONTHS to edit.

Holy cow those standards are exactly what I envisioned for Erlauf and verglas! Awesome detail and proportion on the dragon and reindeer!

Yeah, she really nailed them! (The colors for Verglas I think are especially amazing!)

That. Is. So. COOL. 8D The only standard I remember from the books is Verglas. Kudos to the artist for both the art and the close reading! 8D

Yeah, you guys are always impressing me with the details you pick up. 😀 (Frog Price will hopefully prove that…)

Preparations and Flags

Preparations for Frog Prince continue! I have all the extras written up–they just have to go through a round of editing–and I had a lot of fun with these particular extras, so I really hope you all enjoy them. So far it looks like we are on schedule for a late October/early November release!

Assistant Rock Star Meg has begun the awful daunting task of going through all my manuscripts and reformatting them. This is a bigger task then it sounds because it just so happens I’m horrible at consistency, so each manuscript is out of order in its own, unique way. Hopefully we’ll be able to get a few new paperbacks out before Christmas–in particular Wild Swans and Rumpelstiltskin. Thanks for your patience, Meg!


Additionally, I have some new, beautiful fan art to display! Champion Mary Theresa created something I’m particularly gleeful about: the flag standards for Erlauf, Arcainia, and Verglas!


I have to commend Mary’s attention to detail as the standards are really only mentioned one time each in the entire series and she perfectly nailed the colors and country symbols. (I also like that she made each shield different!) But I think this is also an incredibly high compliment. As an author, it’s a little easier for me to flesh out characters and scenes for you all as readers, but countries are on a totally different level. So I’m so happy that Mary was interested enough in the countries and their standards that she decided to make these. (Thanks Mary!)


That’s all for today! Thanks for reading, Champions, and have a lovely weekend!
