Happy Midsummer, everyone!
Yes, it’s that time, when the days are the longest (at least here in the Northern Hemisphere) and the nights are the shortest. Also, incidentally, the time of my birthday. So in order to celebrate both these events, “The Dreaming Land I” is free this weekend on Kindle!
“The Dreaming Land” mini-series begins just before Midsummer and continues until early fall. In keeping with its summery setting, it’s *by far* the most sultry of my books/series, with some, ahem, rather steamy scenes, especially in books II and III.
At the same time, like my other books, it’s also overtly philosophical (that’s not just me bragging; other people have told me that), full of meditations on things like the nature of freedom and human interactions with the natural world. As I’ve written about before, it’s on one level a retelling of the story of Eowyn, and a challenge to what I see as possibly masculine assumptions about freedom and responsibility, as well as a call to be a giver rather than a taker in this world. And of course it’s full of allusions to Russian literature, from The Tale of Igor’s Campaign to the present day.
If that’s got you curious, here’s that link again to get a free copy on Kindle.
And now it’s time for this week’s selection of book giveaways and promos!
