I would not have found Sarah A. Hoyt and her writings if I had not decided to become indie-published. I found her as I read Joe Konrath, Dean W. Smith, and Kristine Katherine Rusch. I went to her blog to see what kind of stories she wrote and stayed to read her ideas about being published, about having two sons, and about life.
Although I have never met Sarah in person, I consider her a friend. She has enthusiastically promoted my poetry and my stories. I want to be like her when I grow up.
It is a regency adventure fantasy filled with wizards, magic, and Fair Folk.
I had the opportunity to read the earc before publishing, and I couldn’t stop reading. There are all kinds of people in all kinds of compromising situations, plus a quest through Fairy.
In Avalon, where the world runs on magic, the king of Britannia appoints a witchfinder to rescue unfortunates with magical power from lands where magic is a capital crime. Or he did. But after the royal princess was kidnapped from her cradle twenty years ago, all travel to other universes has been forbidden, and the position of witchfinder abolished. Seraphim Ainsling, Duke of Darkwater, son of the last witchfinder, breaks the edict. He can’t simply let people die for lack of rescue. His stubborn compassion will bring him trouble and disgrace, turmoil and danger — and maybe, just maybe, the greatest reward of all.
