Good news, everyone! I know it has been a while, but I haven’t been idle. After a lot of rewrites, I’ve almost finished a new book. It’s called Cloudbreak, and it’s kind of a primitive fantasy story…something like Apocalypto or The Clan of the Cave Bear but set on an alien world. Here’s the pitch:
Halia is Cloudborn, of a race of beings who live in the sky alongside flying serpents and great Leviathans, and she wants nothing but the best for her unborn child. But when Halia suffers a violent injury, she sinks through the clouds to a world she never knew existed, a world of stone and smoke and fire. She falls in with the Elamon, a tribe of ground dwellers who scrape out a meager existence on the side of a mountain. The Elamon are wary of foreigners; their home is threatened by a rival tribe whose chief claims to be a living god and ruler of all the lands. Longing for home but unable to fly, Halia must win the Elamon’s hearts, stand with them against their enemies, adapt and survive, not just for her sake, but for the sake of her unborn.
I hope to have this out by Christmas, so stay tuned. And, as always, thanks for reading.
