Free E-book Giveaway: Take a Trip on the Heavenly Tranquility to An Unknown Galaxy


My e-book series for The Vulpecula Cycle is now available as a free download from December 5th through December 9th, 2015, on Amazon. You can buy the print edition as one volume, but since I wrote them as stand-alone novellas, I released them separately in digital form. Here are the links to the free e-books:

The three e-book volumes in order are The Heavenly Tranquility (Vol 1), The Regent and the Courtier (Vol 2), and The Star Lords (Vol 3).

At this point, let me explain my cover art for the e-books and print edition. As we are seeing with the current read-along book, Rhetorical Chronicle, and previously with My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox, the trend these days is to portray fox spirits as a lot more friendly, even virtuous, but also often very innocent. That was also my take on them in these stories, though perhaps it was also a general Western understanding of animals as somehow pure and innocent. Paper art in the modern era, in my opinion, can look a little childlike, and I really was picking up that kind of fairy tale style for the collages. For the print edition, I used paper doll cut outs of my male fox and his ally-enemy Xanthia and superimposed them over a dictionary listing of phrases expressing the much more sinister interpretations of the fox in Chinese culture and language. Hopefully, that sets the mood for the story.
