I am pleased to announce that the second book in the Glassmakers trilogy, Facets of Glass, is now available on most ebook retailers.
When Chiara Dragoni learns that her beloved stepsister Minerva has been enchanted by a witch in the service of her enemies, she must leave the safety of Bohemia and return to Venice, where her life is in danger. Will she be able to break the spell without being caught by the Dowager Princess?
For those who prefer to read in hard copy, I have not yet completed the formatting or the wraparound cover for the paperback version, but it should only be a matter of days now.
To celebrate the event, I have lowered the ebook price of the first book in the series, Island of Glass, to 99c (or the equivalent wherever you are on the globe).
Seventeen-year-old Chiara Dragoni is a master glassmaker of Venice, a position that is both a privilege — and a trap. For the glassmakers of Murano are forbidden to ever leave the islands of the Venetian lagoon.
When Chiara’s uncle is caught on the mainland and thrown into the dungeon of the Doge’s Palace, she must use all her talents, including magic, to help free him. But the gift she creates for the prince of Venice has unintended consequences, and now Chiara must decide whether to give up everything — and everyone — she knows and loves in order to save her dream.
Set in an alternate historical Venice with alchemists, witches and magic, the story uses familiar motifs from the beloved fairy tale “Cinderella” to tell a tale with a very different message.
If the sale price is not available for you, please let me know in the comments, and I will try to fix it!
I realize I have made readers of the first book in the series wait atrociously long for the second book, and I apologize. But in order to not make the same mistake twice, I wrote the final drafts of books 2 and 3 (Shards of Glass) simultaneously. According to my beta readers, Shards of Glass still needs some work regarding the pacing, but I promise it won’t take anywhere near as long for me to finish as the second book. Shards of Glass should be available by summer at the latest. 🙂
