If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted much lately. There’s a few reasons for that, but one of the big ones is that I’ve been busy getting ready for the release of Manifestation, Volume One of the Arcana Revived series.
Manifestation began its life here on this blog two years ago. Since then it’s evolved from a post-by-post story into a full-fledged novel, the first book in what is (so far) a six book series. The story follows Gabby Palladino as she struggles to survive in a world being changed by the return of magic after centuries where it was considered to be nothing more than myth and legend. Arcane powers return and begin spreading to more and more people, none of whom understand these powers or know how to control them. The result is chaos and danger all around while Gabby tries to figure out why this is happening and what it has to do with her.
The cover was designed by the wonderful and talented Ravven. You can check out more of her work on her website or her deviantart page. She also designed the cover for the short story Radiance that was released last year.
The book will be released in ebook and paperback form very soon. I’ll post more here when I have the exact release date, but it’ll be within the next couple of weeks for sure. In the meantime, if you’re interested in a preview, you can always check out Radiance, a short story set in the same world as Manifestation.
Also, a special thanks to everyone who participated in the Kickstarter I ran last year. They’re the ones that raised the funds that paid for this cover.
