Welcome to Sarah Scheele.com newsletter subscribers! Some of you signed up so long ago you probably don’t remember—some just a few days ago—and some months back but haven’t heard from me. It’s nice to talk to all of you again. Be aware I struggled managing my lists earlier this year and I have subscribers overlapped from different lists. If you usubscribed from one list I might have accidentally had you on another list and that's why you're getting this. This was an honest error and I apologize. Feel free to unsubscribe again.
There’s a lot to catch up on! This week I linked the blog into the newsletter, which means you’ll be getting inbox posts from me weekly instead of monthly (or even less often.) I follow a lot of mailing lists and I do feel a lot more engaged when I get frequent emails, even if I never open half of them. Emails will go out on Saturday, so if you're also looking at this post through the website, you'll get an email tomorrow.
I’ve continued working on revision of my books and enhancement of my website. Both of those are in a much (MUCH) improved condition as of now and I’d like to invite you to browse around the new SARAH SCHEELE.COM. If you’d like a snapshot of what people have been looking at, see my Most Viewed Posts.
I have FB chat on my website now! I discovered this cool new feature when ramping up my FB fan page earlier this year. The widget is installed on the “News” page as a Messenger pop-up. Type in a conversation with me there and start chatting with me from my website!
Facets of Fantasy Blue is free on Kindle on Friday Jan 4 and Saturday Jan 5. Be sure to check it out on those days to get the sales rankings up (and enjoy the book too, of course.) 😊 I finally decided on the grouping of stories I wanted for this collection, an alternative to the complete Facets of Fantasy with the purple cover. Just in case you didn’t see the blurb—here it is:
Three fantasy stories that take you to amazing worlds--three mysterious royal families in need of investigation. A boy learns a dull political convention might hold a palace secret and more adventure than he could hope for. A girl leaving her ancient country home finds unlikely allies in her family’s ancestral enemies, elf-like spirits who can take the form of wolves. And a girl from a minority group that’s never noticed by the monarchy is forced to attend a royal ball—in someone else’s ridiculous dress—when she receives an unexplained invitation.
I plan to do a lot more promoting this year. I usually put my books on promotion on Friday and Saturday so be on the lookout for that.
And there will be more updates.
Singing, dreaming, telling stories . . . I live surrounded by cultivated fields that rapidly give way to wild flowers, wild plants, and wild life. I love to write more than I love to read, but nothing equals a book that draws me in to find its story. Most recently publication: A Year with the Harrisons, a contemporary comedy about three sisters and a family mystery. Next year's publication: Temmark Osteraith, a futuristic fairy-tale adventure.
