http://ift.tt/1hNcAA3New Beginnings... Part 3

It took a bit longer than expected to deliver this next excerpt. Now that Barb and I are back online and fully reset in our new location, it is time to return to an inside peak at work in our home office.

If this is your first encounter with this new series, you might take a peek at Part 1 and Part 2 to get caught up. Be mindful that these are extracts from a draft-level, copyrighted work in progress. And so, let us continue…

J.C. here this time. Along with Barb and I relocating locally before fall sets in, we will soon begin the first book (under contract) in a new collaborative dark/high fantasy series to debut in January 2017. Around these imminent pursuits, there are other career duties to attend as well, so it might seem strange that I am driven to add one more big one. And then there is what to do to keep worthwhile content flowing at NobleDead.org until well after the move.

It has been too long since I last worked on a solo novel of my own. A scary thought amid an overloaded schedule. To keep myself motivated in this additional pursuit, I will try something I have not done in over a decade. In the following weeks, I will share with you the post-draft (pre-finalized) scenes from this new work. I will not likely go beyond Chapter 3 in this manner, but feel free to comment and point others this way.

Be mindful that this is a copyrighted work. I have a title in mind, but will keep that secret for now. And so, let us begin…

http://ift.tt/1IGoMs1NobleDead.org Upgrade 90% Complete
The site template and textual content have been reworked for balance to server desktops, notebooks, and portable devices. Noble­Dead­.org is once again ready for use, though there is still more work to do.

Next to implement is the banner system for the site as a whole and some pages. And then it will be time for another raffle at NobleDead.org. Stay tuned in for more news coming later today.

http://ift.tt/1FNsjHLRAFFLE DELAYED...
We had planned to start a new raffle as of yesterday, but it did not work out. Both Barb and J.C. have very heavy work schedules at the moment. They prefer to be directly involved in happenings at NobleDead.org rather than put that on the staff. And so, we will hold off for a week to see if their schedules clear up and give you another update by next Monday at the latest.

http://ift.tt/1FBg3KoBOOK B-DAY RAFFLE: And the Winners (really) are…
#freebooks, #fantasybooks, #misttornwitches, #nobledeadsaga, #barbhendee, #raffle

After some failed confirmations from one selected winner, we now have our third and final winner for this raffle. Along with April Halcomb and Mark Mains, Michael S. Hockenson Jr. has also won a signed, first edition, paperback of MW3: Witches with the Enemy.

Even now, all prizes are in the mail and should be in the winners’ hands with 10 days (usually). And with half a week gone, it will not be too long until next Monday morning… and another Audiobook raffle from Barb & J.C. and NobleDead.org.

http://ift.tt/1M2bLjqNew Beginnings… Part 2

J.C. back again, though it may be two weeks plus before Part 3 appears. During that time, Barb and I will be busy settling into our new home, preparing for work on the coming new series, and going over our line-editor’s notes for S3B5: The Night Voice. August will be a very busy month for us.

For those stopping in on this series for the first time, you might take a peek at Part 1 to get caught up on what this is really about. Be mindful that these are extracts from a copyrighted work in progress. And so, let us continue…

http://ift.tt/1Hzvq2HNoble Dead Raffle: And the Winner is…
#freebooks, #fantasybooks, #raffle, #nobledeadsaga, #nobledead, #nobledeadseries

Paula Holder has won a signed, hardbound, first edition of First and Last Sorcerer sent to her straight from Barb and J.C.  It will be on its way Monday evening or Tuesday morning.

At present, Barb and J.C. are also in the process of relocating by the end of the month. Along with a new collaborative novel (for a new series) to start, they need a little break. Our next raffle will not be until mid-August at the earliest to give them time to setup in their new home office as well. But along the way, something else is planned.

Stay with us, as this is not even close to the last raffle out of NobleDead.org, and other treats are coming your way as well. Watch for them and don’t miss out.

For approximately the next 72 hours, NobleDead.org will be in transition to a new responsive layout. This has been pending for quite some time.

During this transition, some or all site sections may be unavailable or unstable. By next week, all should be put right again, and so…

Story
Tagline
G+ satellite page for the Noble Dead Saga, The Mist-Torn Witches Series, and other high/dark fantasy fiction by authors Barb & J.C. Hendee.
Introduction
The saga (a.k.a. the Noble Dead Series) tells the tale of...
  • Magiere the dhampir (half-vampire),
  • Leesil the ex-assassin half-elf, and
  • Chap the huge wolf who is not a wolf,
  • and other critical main characters,
who are all locked into a fate linked to a 1000-year old war that covered their world under the leadership of the Ancient Enemy of many names. That conflict wiped out recorded history before its time. Civilization in its regrowth holds few who remember or acknowledge this cataclysm, for it is now forgotten myth. Unless these few and their allies (or even enemies) unravel how and why it all happened, it could happen again... perhaps for the final time.
