Happy Book-Day to From Under The Mountain

Oh boy, do I have a lot to tell you. I think this tweet sums it up however.

That’s right,  I started a book club. Do I know how to run a book club? Who knows.  I mean yes! Over 300 people have offically signed up and I send out what feels like 100 review copies. ‘Well, that’s nice, but what is Ace Book Club,” someone asks.

It’s a club where books we read either have an asexual spectrum author or have canon asexual characters within them. (Sometimes both) We will focus mostly on new-ish releases and indie authors. You don’t have to be ace yourself to read or join. If you’d like to join the club is everywhere: Tumblr | Twitter | Goodreads | Facebook

I picked From Under The Mountain because it came out on my birthday! That seemed like a pretty serendipitous way to kick off the book club! Plus I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the author both a bit personally and professionally so I’m excited to collectively check out this book with you.

Cait Spivey is a speculative fiction writer, author of high fantasy From Under the Mountain and the horror novella series, “The Web“. Her enduring love of fantasy started young, thanks to authors like Tolkien, J.K. Rowling, Diane Duane, Tamora Pierce, and many more. Now, she explores the rules and ramifications of magic in her own works—and as a panromantic asexual, she’s committed to queering her favorite genres.

Darkly cinematic, From Under the Mountain pairs the sweeping landscape of epic fantasy with the personal journey of finding one’s voice in the world, posing the question: how do you define evil, when everything society tells you is a lie?

The Future of Bone Diggers

I promised a surprise today, and here it is, a trailer featuring the song Why We Lose! (Which seriously has to be one of my favorite playlist songs) Instead of having a traditional trailer I decided that featuring the comment section would be more fitting way to wrap up the year. That way you can see the literal ways people help make Bone Diggers year– I mean 2015 so special. It also features brand new fnVR graphics to help blend the fiction with reality. Because if Bone Diggers was about one thing it would be that duality.

“Bone Diggers has queer characters that are defined by much more than their sexual preference, character driven story, passionate rage-based violence, and religious imagery. I’m always a slut for this right here.” – John Lopez

I can’t thank the people above enough for taking a moment to comment. Or the people who tweeted me about Bone Diggers, or even the silent readers who just added to the page count. 2015 was a great year because of Bone Diggers and you.

 And for the future~

For those who haven’t read Bone Diggers yet: The story will be staying on Wattpad and you can now read it all without wait! Cliffhangers are no longer a match for you! The story will be getting plenty polish over this year and I hope to have it published in ebook and paperback in 2017. That’s quite a long time from now, but it gives you plenty of ways to join in!

For those who have read Bone Diggers:  We also have something special for you! Instead of weekly new chapters we are going to have DLC chapters posted every first Friday! These chapters might be alternative chapters, ‘deleted scenes’ or AUs where we can play around with everyone in a different setting or game type. First Fridays here are a community gathering and we hope you enjoy these extra one-off chapters to get extra kisses and other fun in.
