How the books came to be:

After I started writing the fourth book, I decided -- for better or worse I don't know -- to stop writing and go back to edit. After a couple rounds of edits, driving my family crazy with "here - read this" and "how does it sound now", my youngest daughter told me that it didn't completely suck.
Encouraged by the non-total suckiness, I edited more. After countless edits and revisions, I felt it was ready to face the world. So, I sent it in queries to a few agents.

Anyway, to wrap this up, I did a few more rounds of edits and self-published.
About the Tunuftol world:
Tunuftol has the feel of a fantasy. Magic, powers, prophets & prophecies, elves, fairies, travelling on horse back, even sword fights. However, it's also very much a soft science fiction. They travel from Earth through a portal to another planet. Nyssa is a sentient planet. It modifies it's people and grants them names and powers that are partially inherited through their bloodlines (genetics) and partly because of something that Nyssa sees in the person.

The characters are real. It's all real. I know them better than I know most people. Ask me a question about their motives, feelings, etc... I can tell you the why and how of it. (Not that I will if it's a secret or pivotal to the story line. No spoilers sweetie.)
I'm so excited about the new covers... What better way to celebrate than to have another giveaway? By the way... by following one of the items in the Rafflecopter, it also enters you in the giveaway mentioned earlier in my A to Z Challenge. ;)
