What lies beneath the waves

I’m so excited to share the cover of Enchanted Waters, a collection of YA fantasy short stories coming this Summer!

If you love The Little Mermaid and Pirates of the Caribbean (but probably not Waterworld – remember that? Sorry Costner, it was rubbish), you’ll definitely find a story that’s perfect for you in this anthology.

My story Daughter of the Selkie King is a prequel tie in to The Fair Queen, following Delta, a girl living in the Ondine Kingdom and wrestling with some pretty relatable issues. Not least of which is the fact she lives surrounded by water and can’t actually swim.

She feels like she doesn’t quite fit in anywhere, her mother is keeping secrets that could change everything she’s ever known, and now a strange boy has appeared out of nowhere and he seems to know more about Delta than she knows herself.

With water-magic wielding Fair, selkie royalty and a whole lot of teenage angst, DotSK is a quick but intense read that will throw you into the deep end of the Fair Realm.

Available to preorder now for just $2.99 on Amazon Kindle, Enchanted Waters will be released on 16 July 2021 in both ebook and paperback, and will be fully illustrated by an incredibly talented illustrator!

Not only that, but all profits from sales of Enchanted Waters will go to support Oceana, an incredible charity working to clean the world’s oceans and protect marine life. So you’ll not only get a collection of fantastic stories by bestselling and up-and-coming indie authors, you’ll also be helping to save the world. What’s not to love!

What’s your favourite water-fantasy story? My mum wanted to name me Madison, after the mermaid in Splash, so that movie has a special place in my heart.

Happy reading lovely folk!

99p ebook sale ending soon!

It’s that time folks, The Fair Queen is 99p/c on Amazon Kindle until midnight!

If you’ve been thinking about buying it this is your moment.

Today is also the last day to vote in the Indie Fantasy Book of the Year Awards 2020, so if you haven’t already nipped over and given TFQ a quick vote then I’d absolutely love it if you did!

What’s going on?

All this month, I’ve been hosting a daily challenge over on Instagram that I creatively named #alphabetIGchallenge. Can you guess what the daily prompts are?

Today’s letter is W, so I’ll be over there chatting about word counts later and looking for some accountability to get the rewrite of book two, The Solitary King, finished by the end of April.

You can see all my previous posts too, here’s a little run down of what we’ve been talking about in Feb:

Books for fantasy lovers

The other thing I’ve been shouting about online this week is the release of Enchanted Kingdoms, an incredible collection of more than 20 novel-length fairytale-inspired stories by a group of bestselling and award winning indie authors. It’s been at the top of the charts all week and even got a shout out from the fabulous Jennifer L. Armentrout!

It’s still 99c on Amazon Kindle, but only if you move quickly, because the price is going back up to $9.99 very soon!

March is National Reading Month in the US and the 4th is World Book Day, so next month will be full of reading and writing and adding to my already vertiginous TBR. I’m most looking forward to reading The Invisible Life of Addie Larue, The Mask Falling and A Court of Silver Flames. What are you hoping to read next?

Vote for The Fair Queen in the Indie Fantasy Book Awards!

Thank you so much to everyone who nominated TFQ in the first round of the Indie Fantasy Book Awards 2020! With your help we managed to get into the top ten and go through to the final round!

The votes are now open and it’s even easier this time, all you have to do is click the link below, enter your email address and click on my book and submit! 🙂

I’d be so grateful if you could spare ten seconds to vote for me, I know I’m up against some really big indie authors, but every vote counts and will help me to reach more readers.

Thank you so much if you do take the time to vote! Voting is open until Feb 28th, and I’m planning to do a price drop in the final week before the winner is announced, so if you haven’t read The Fair Queen yet and have been thinking about buying it, you might want to wait until it goes on sale. I’ll let you know here when the discount goes live.

I’m also going to be over on my Instagram account reading snippets of the book on my Stories and maybe even going live over the next few weeks, so if you don’t already follow me over there feel free to pop over and say hi @lyndseyhall.

Catch you later! 🙂
