Gods of Ash and Amber Audiobook – First Draft Finished

Hey guys! I have some good news that many have been waiting a long time for. The Gods of Ash and Amber Audiobook is finished! (Well, the first draft, anyway.) It's still in edits to fix minor errors, but this means that it should be completely finished soon, and after that up for sale on Audible, Amazon, and iBooks! I can't give an exact date, because the quality review and bookstore upload process is done by people on Audible's back end, and it varies. However, I'm optimistic it should be available toward the end of this month or early next month. If you are an audio lover and haven't listened to the Seeds of Chaos series, why not check them out now!View Book 1 on AudibleIf you have an Audible subscription plan, you can get the first 2 books, which are over 31 hours combined, together for a single credit. View the Omnibus on AudibleI know some of you have been waiting for a long time for this. I'm sorry it took so long, and thank you for enjoying the books enough to care.As promised, anyone who supports me on Patreon and has contributed $15 or more over the lifetime of their support will get a free Audible download code when the book goes live in the store.  What's up with me: I'm toiling away in the ink mines, working on the next book in the A Practical Guide to Sorcery Series, which has received a very positive and encouraging reception. I've got so many ideas for this series and these characters, and the story is a joy to write. My goal, as it always seems to be, is to get a little faster at this whole story-production process. I'm trying some new things to help with that, from outsourcing some things that I can,…

Second Goal Reached (2 extra chapters!)

We've reached 25 patrons, which is the second goal! We've just been creeping along with someone new every now and then, and suddenly, here we are! Thank you guys very much for your support. It means a lot to me to see other people enjoying this story, and I hope to continue to put out interesting content. As promised, I will be posting two extra chapters as a thank you. Tomorrow will be the normal regularly scheduled Thursday chapters. The extra chapters will come out on Sunday the 18th and Tuesday the 20th, on my website like always. After that, it'll be the regularly schedule Thursday chapter, until we reach twenty-five patrons, when I will post two extra chapters! Some people have been having trouble accessing the advance Patreon chapters due to  some trouble with the latest version of Wordpress and the Patreon  plugin. If this is you:1. Clear your cache and try again to force it to actually update the page with new information.2. If that doesn't work, on Patreon, make sure you've accepted their cookies.3. If you have an adblocker, make sure it's off on both Patreon and my website.4. After logging in on Patreon, if the "refresh" button on the chapter you  want to read my website doesn't work, try clicking "Unlock with  Patreon." There should be an intermediate page that pops up asking you  to allow the Patreon app embedded in my website to access your Patreon  information. 5.  If that still doesn't work, just log in with your Patreon info directly  on my website and bypass the app's connective function altogether using page: azaleaellis.com/login6.  If none of that is working, contact me through email, the contact form  on my website, or message me here on Patreon, and we'll figure something out.Thank you again, and as always, happy reading!Azalea

Special Offer February 11-26

I'm excited to announce a Special Offer I'm running along with the launch of the first book in A Practical Guide to Sorcery, A Conjuring of Ravens! This offer is available for only two weeks, through February 26. All pledges at $7 or more will receive a faux-celerium Conduit keychain (in our world it's known as raw quartz). This level also includes early  access to the next 3 chapters of the story, which will be getting into  Book 2, A Binding of Blood, and all the illustrated excerpts from  Siobhan's grimoire.  Pledges at $25 or more will also receive a personalized paperback copy of the book, with your name in it and a message from me on the first page, along with a signed bookplate sticker I designed for this story. The bookplate sticker is meant to go inside the book, but you can do whatever you want with it. My goal here is to reach the 25 patrons milestone. When we reach that point, I will post an extra 2 chapters within the following week. If we hit 35 total patrons, I will post a map of University grounds, big enough to have printed, and an omake chapter that you guys give suggestions for and vote on. It  can be from any side character's POV, and explore their experience of  something that happened in A Conjuring of Ravens. Want to know what  happened with the coppers or the Morrows after their fight with Siobhan  at the end of Book 1? Want to know what a random side student feels like  going to class with Sebastien Siverling, who doesn't remember their  name even after months in the same dorm and same classes? Want to see  what schemes the girl who has a crush on Sebastien comes up with to get…

A Conjuring of Ravens: Pre-Order

I'm super happy to announce that the first book in my new Practical Guide to Sorcery series is up and available for pre-order as an ebook. It's only $2.99 for the pre-order period, but it will be going up to the standard $4.99 price after launch week. In a world where magic is a science, Siobhan Naught is a genius. But even geniuses need schooling. Siobhan will do anything to learn magic. But she's just been banned from the country's only magical university. As the unwitting accomplice to the theft of a priceless magical artifact, she has suddenly become a wanted criminal. There are fates worse than death, and if caught, she will face them. Unwilling to give up on her dream of becoming the world's most powerful sorcerer, she resolves to do whatever it takes to change her fate. Even if it means magically disguising herself as a boy and indebting herself to a gang of criminals to pay for University tuition. With the coppers after her, the pressure of trying to keep her spot in the devilishly competitive magic classes, and the gang calling in favors to repay her debts, Siobhan will need every drop of magic she can channel. It is currently available on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, and iBooks.Get your copy now for 40% off!: https://books2read.com/u/m0wPEl More stores (and the paperback!) will be coming soon, and for those of you who are interested in audio, I will be starting the search for a narrator as soon as the final book in the Seeds of Chaos series is completed.
