Ear Candy – Booktrack and audio shorts

IMG_2058

Hey guys!

I am so, so, SOOO excited to let you guys know about a really cool development with Threats of Sky and Sea today.

A few months ago, the folks over at Booktrack reached out to work with me and create a Booktrack for Threats. I looked into Booktrack and was really WOW-ed by what I learned.

A Booktrack is a movie-style soundtrack to coincide with text, complete with ambient sounds and dramatic scoring.

It’s a super immersive reading experience that puts a reader more fully into the text by utilizing another sense for the experience. I’ve been lucky enough to preview what they’ve put together for Threats of Sky and Sea and it’s incredible.

For a limited time, you can get the Threats of Sky and Sea Booktrack for just $1.99.

For anyone worried– that includes both the Threats text and the accompanying Booktrack. Hurry, because while the Threats Booktrack will continue to be available, it won’t remain at that price!

I hope you guys decide to check it out because– seriously, it’s just amazing. I am in awe of what their team put together.

You can read more about me gushing over the brilliance of Booktrack– as well as sharing my Threats of Sky and Sea playlist– over on their blog today!

And be sure to check out Booktrack’s app | website | Twitter to learn more!

Hey all!

Today, I’m excited to reveal the blurb and cover for my next Threats of Sky and Sea prequel short, which will be available December 29, 2015!

Every winter, the snow glitters like a pretty lie. The winter palace swarms with visiting nobles. And, Lady Corrine fights not to lose her breath.
Because whether he means to or not, Duke Ardin steals it away.

A letter to Riot of Storm and Smoke on release day

Riot of Storm and Smoke cover Jennifer Ellision

Happy book birthday, Riot of Storm and Smoke! 

Like your older sibling, Threats of Sky and Sea, I want to write you a letter on this, your release day. Like Threats, there were times I doubted we’d be able to get to this point. In writing you, there were often multiple steps back for every step forward.

But unlike with Threats, I always knew where you, Riot, would start and end. It was just all of the stuff in the middle that took me a while to figure out.

You were different and, like so many younger siblings, you struggled to define yourself. To stand apart from Threats of Sky and Sea. And boy, did you manage. To illustrate that point, I’ve pulled together a couple of small graphs for a few of these differences:Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 4.51.18 PM

Love you, Riot. Mean it.

Your author,

Jennifer Ellision

Less than a month until RIOT OF STORM AND SMOKE

Hello, my friends!

Oh my gosh, Riot of Storm and Smoke comes out so, so, SO soon. Less than a month until August 18!

Here’s what’s happened lately:

  • I made these promises:

It’s at 13 pre-orders right now, so I’m… actually kind of nervous that these are things I will have to do, but I AM A WOMAN OF MY WORD. (I’m slightly less nervous about the first one, but Fight Song is hard, yo). If you want to join in the campaign to see me embarrass myself, you can pre-order Riot of Storm and Smoke on Kindle here.

  • I finished my revisions based on the feedback of my critique partners and my editor, the fabulous Rebecca Coffindaffer. Here were some of the comments from my CPs:

  • I sent the manuscript to my formatter! I should have the files ready to go in a couple weeks. Bloggers, if you’d like an e-book of Riot of Storm and Smoke for review (or any of my other books/audiobooks for that matter), please don’t hesitate to e-mail me! I’m working on getting it up on Netgalley soon and, as always, I’m totally down for interviews and the like as well.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned! And you can always stay up to date– and get early sneak peeks of what I’m working on next through my new release newsletter!
