I’ve got a new story coming out soon! We’re aiming at the end of the summer, keep your fingers crossed. The Violin Maker’s Wife is a 40 page ‘novelette’ (that really is a thing, I promise) that I wrote with Luc Reid a couple of years ago and recently reworked and polished up. I really like this story! There is one part in it that always makes me cry (not the ending, I can very nearly guarantee I will never write a downer ending, I hate those) and one part that always makes me gasp. As a writer I’m pretty happy when that happens.
But without further ado, here is the cover with more intriguing art from the talented Ms. Ida Larsen:
And here’s an early attempt at blurb:
A historical fantasy, set in 1870s Missouri, Nora Warren always knew there was something uncanny about her husband, Tom’s, work. What she didn’t know what that his enchanted violins could be deadly. Tom’s friend has one of his instruments, as does Tom himself. And so does Garrett, Tom and Nora’s only son. With Garrett in danger, Nora must find the answer Tom won’t tell her, even if it means searching the spells hidden in his workshop, questioning a secret society of musicians, or confronting the unnatural lights in Nora’s own orchard and following them into the wilderness. Tom has looked too deeply into his own magic, but to save Garrett it is Nora who must find who, or what, has looked back.
I’ll keep y’all posted as the publication date looms large….

Full Primary. Actually, that’s a lie. I left off those butt balance poses at the end of seated. I kind of hate those. They bore me. [hangs head] I’m weak.

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
