TNDS: The Jan and Julianna series

HW5_Tales_Logo_128Okay, yesterday I (Barb) finished the first draft of the next novella in the adventures and romance of Jan and Julianna, tentatively titled The Sleeping Curse.

JC hasn't read it yet, and he sometimes likes to play with titles. This is a fun story, and we should have further details available in July through along with purchase points. As for all previous releases, see the “Tales” page at our site for T·N·D·S (a.k.a. Tales from the world of the Noble Dead Saga).

If you want to read the ongoing story of Jan and Juliana—one of our few truly sequential sets of tales, all in the “Homeward” collection—here is the order for them:

HW6 HW7 

NOTE (Barb): The Reluctant Guardian is about Aunt Beija, but the plight of Jan and Julianna plays a part.

NOTE (J.C.): the motif of past covers will change in the near future to fit our new “collection” approach to design, content, and organization. In the covers for Captives and Claws you see the slight differences to come when we update past covers.

See the “Tales” page at for further details and purchase points to these and other ebook-only releases.
