The Foundling

Posted on August 9th 2015 ⋄ By Sara Cleveland ⋄ Category: Writing

Camp NaNo came and went this year and, well, I didn’t get a whole lot done. Courting the Dragon has had me down a bit the last few months, so I took a break during camp to work on another idea I’ve had floating around my head. This one is titled The Foundling and the first three chapters of it are currently up on Inkitt where you can read them for free. I even went ahead and entered in into their “Hither and Thither” contest, so votes would be much appreciated.

The Foundling is the story of a woman named Unna who finds a baby on her doorstep that was left for her by a fae creature with a note admonishing her to treasure the precious gift. The woman raises the child as her own, cherishing the extraordinary baby girl. Unna’s life is once again turned upside down when her beloved daughter is kidnapped by the fae. The distraught mother will stop at nothing to get her daughter back, even if it means taking on the King of the Fair-folk himself.

For the time being I have turned my attention back to Courting the Dragon but the intention is to finish up The Foundling in the months following Courting’s release, which I expect to be sometime in the summer of 2016. I had hoped to release Courting this winter, but at this point it looks to be a longer ways off than that.

If you all would be so kind as to drop by Inkitt sometime this week and vote for The Foundling in the contest, I would be much obliged. I don’t expect to win, but it’d be sweet if we could get it up to the top twenty or so.

Cheers, y’all.

*Edit: Voting closes at 10pm PST tomorrow, Monday the 10th. So please vote before then

Like the new look?

Posted on August 8th 2015 ⋄ By Sara Cleveland ⋄ Category: News, Website Updates

As you’ve probably already noticed I’ve been a busy bee the last couple of days revamping the look of the home site and this blog. Content hasn’t changed much (yet), but the look sure has. I decided that what I had going just wasn’t working and, frankly, didn’t really fit with the image I want to cultivate. It just didn’t scream fantasy author, and it didn’t really show off what I can do as a web developer, either. So, double fail. Things are still a work in progress, of course, but I wanted to get the new background and color scheme up ASAP.

Things you can look forward to in the near future:

  • A fully re-done Contact tab
  • New social media links
  • More information about the next book in the Penelope’s Dragon series
  • More frequent blog posts
  • Additional updates to the general look-and-feel of the site

So, with that said, feel free to look around. If you run into any bugs in the site or places where I just dun goofed, please feel free to drop me a line on the Contact form and let me know.

Thanks for reading!
