I’m excited to finally officially announce the release of The Beast of Yonder, book 1 of the Metafictionals series. While many of you may not have heard much about this book coming, I’m super excited, because I’ve been working on this series for several years. The second book is nearly ready for release, book three is completed in first draft form, awaiting revision, and book four is 3/4 written.
I’ve been delaying too long, and it’s time to get this show on the road! I’m releasing the ebook version first, so if in the process of reading it, you find errors, let me know, so I can fix them in preparation for the print copy. The print version is mostly ready, I’m just adjusting the text on the back of the book. The speed of it’s availability will be based partly on how much time I get to work on it, and partly on the demand for it.
I hope you’ll do my a monstrous favor and help me get the word out about this book. I’m not as pushy as I should be with these kinds of things, so your help would be phenomenal.
I’ve always loved the Chronicles of Narnia, particularly because of their Christian allegorical elements, and my major focus in this series was to follow Lewis’s tradition, with fun adventures, quirky characters, and deep spiritual symbolism. That said, this series (particularly volume 1) is also inspired by the funky traditional legends my family conjured while I was a kid. I tweaked them, of course, but had so much fun doing it. And just for fun, I’ve included some easter-egg-style stuff throughout the book for anyone interested in delving deeper into the story/characters.
I would love to get your feedback! Contact me with any questions, concerns, ideas, or anything, at firstname.lastname@example.org
