‘Sandrunners – A Draconis Memoria Short Story’ Now a Mailing List Freebie and ‘Queen of Fire’ Gets a New Chinese Cover

‘Sandrunners – A Draconis Memoria Short Story’ is now available to download for free as a thank you to anyone who signs up to my mailing list.

Any readers of The Waking Fire curious as to what exactly happened during the oft-referred to Wittler Expedition, or anyone in search of an introduction to the Draconis Memoria world, should check it out. In this prequel story, newly graduated Blood-blessed Ethelynne Drystone accompanies the Sandrunners Independent Contractor Company on a dangerous mission to the Arradsian Interior, intent on finding the lair of the legendary White Drake.

Thanks to Aaron Randall for the cover art and design (aaronrandallart.com).

The story is also still available to buy as a standalone or as part of the Legends II Anthology in ebook and print.

In other news, the Chinese edition of Queen of Fire (Raven’s Shadow book 3) has a wonderful new cover.

The art is by Beijing based art duo Xiling who also produced the illustrations for the new Chinese editions of Blood Song and Tower Lord. You can view more of their work on their Artstation page
