Faerie Blood

Faerie Blood

Kendis Thompson of Seattle thinks she’s as normal as the next computer geek, and up till now, she’s been right. But her world is about to turn on its ear, for she is the daughter of a Seelie Court mage and her mortal husband–and her faerie blood is awakening. Suddenly the city she’s known all her life is transforming before her eyes. Trolls haunt the bike trails. Fairies and goblins run loose in the streets. An old woman who is not what she seems and a young wanderer running from his past stand ready to defend Seattle–and Kendis–from magical assault. She will need those allies, for the power rising within her is calling her fey kin to the Emerald City to find her. And kill her.

About the Book

Faerie Blood was my very first novel, originally published in May 2009 by Drollerie Press. It’s intended to be the first of a trilogy, as well as the first of a whole set of inter-related works, including other novels and shorter stories. So far, these other works include “The Blood of the Land”, which originally appeared in Defiance and is now available as a standalone purchase, and various character vignettes here on the site. Faerie Blood‘s first sequel, Bone Walker, is also available!

In the spring of 2012, I ran a Kickstarter project to re-publish Faerie Blood in a second edition, along with Bone Walker. The book’s second edition had a new copyedit pass to bring its “present day” up from 2003 (when I originally wrote it) to 2012, and I’ve added Dedication, Author’s Notes, Acknowledgements, and About the Author sections as well. I commissioned artist Kiri Moth to do the cover for it as well as the next two books of the trilogy, and my partner Dara Korra’ti did the new layout for the cover and for the print and PDF editions. We’re all really proud of how the book turned out!

Buying the Print Edition:

Since Faerie Blood and Bone Walker are both associated with the Bone Walker Soundtrack by Crime and the Forces of Evil, both books are available as merch on the band’s Bandcamp page. You can find a merch page for Faerie Blood‘s print edition right over here!

The asking price for the print edition of the book if purchased via Bandcamp is $17 (or more if you wish) USD, plus shipping. If you buy through Bandcamp, you can use whatever means of payment Bandcamp will accept, and this includes credit cards as well as Paypal.

If you are not local to me or otherwise not likely to see me at either a science fiction convention or at a music concert, this is the recommended way to order a copy of the book in print. It is, however, not the only option. Please see the Buying From Me page for further details on other ways to get the book.

I will respond to any orders received through Bandcamp with a shipping copy as soon as possible.
