Well, I (Chris) have been working behind the scenes getting ready to release eBooks for both Morrigan’s Brood and Morrigan’s Brood: Crone of War. I am in the process of acquiring eBook publishing software, and I have been setting up accounts with various eBook distributors, such as PubIT (B&N), Kindle (Amazon), Sony, iTunes, Smashwords, and Goodreads, to name a few. We have also acquired a bundle of ISBNs, so hopefully the file conversion process doesn’t take me too long. I have already converted Morrigan’s Brood to HTML, so eBook shouldn’t be far off. Perhaps in a week or two, both books will be available in your favorite eBook format.
No, not yet, so there is still time to enter. If you have not entered already, send an email to Christopher Dunbar. What might you win if you enter? One set of three of Morrigan’s Brood and Morrigan’s Brood: Crone of War, signed by the authors. How much does it cost? The effort to send us an email. How long do you have? Oh, a few more hours… let’s say 9:00 PM CDT, so a little over 5 hours. I will write new contestants names onto tickets and the place those tickets with the ones filled out at Comicpalooza. I will announce the winners on this blog after the drawing tonight, and then I will attempt to contact winners starting tomorrow.
Welcome fans and friends, new and old! We just got back from the Houston Indie Book Festival, and boy are we tired. All day in the humid, sweltering heat became quite taxing. Still, we met many new friends, and we bumped into a few old friends there as well. If you visited us at the Houston Indie Book Festival, AggieCon42 (which we were at last weekend) or some other event, please feel free to say hi in the comments below. I (Christopher) have some pretty cool news to tell, so be prepared for some good reading.
Last year / last month / a few weeks ago, we had announced that we had a few oopses from our printer, that is books which have cover blemishes, rendering them unable to be sold; of course the paper inside is in good condition. Previously, we had offered those books for free if you paid for shipping. We had a few interested parties, so we have shipped out some of those books, but we still have two sets of Morrigan’s Brood and Morrigan’s Brood: Crone of War with cover blemishes, and all four books are just resting on my (Christopher) bookshelf behind me, waiting for new homes.
Sometimes the printer sends us uh-oh’s. However, these uh-oh’s are uh-oh’s on the cover. Most of the time the text is off on the spine. However, everything between the covers is perfect!
So in honor of these uh-oh’s… we’re giving away the uh-oh’s. Okay, they’re not absolutely free, you have to pay for the shipping. However, Chris and I (Heather) will sign ’em and send ’em anywhere!

Our latest Goodreads giveaway contest is over, and we have three winners. All three winners will each receive a copy of Morrigan’s Brood and a copy of Morrigan’s Brood: Crone of War, both signed by the authors, as well as some bookmarks.

Hey friends and fans of Triscelle Publishing, home of the Morrigan’s Brood Series! Guess what? (Well, if you read our last blog post, this is no surprise.) Heather and Chris were interviewed for Paranormal Haven! Not only did they interview us, they are also hosting a contest. If you want to read our interview and / or enter the contest, please click here.
I wish to apologize to our readers for delaying the continuation of our About Our Cats thread – I have spent much time preparing for Halloween, looking at alternatives to Lulu for print-on-demand printing, and doing other stuff, though perhaps laziness was also a factor. I will continue soon with the story of Ophelia. But now back to business and the news of the week…
Heather and I (Christopher) will be interviewed in a guest blog post on Paranormal Haven. Cool! Well, OK, for us cool… our first interview, but it was fun, and we hope our friends and fans will find it entertaining as well as informative.
I wish to apologize to our friends and fans for taking so long to follow up on a blog entry. These last few weeks have been hectic and tiring, but I think it was mostly laziness on my part that kept me from writing an update. Well, today I break out of my laziness to bring you important news from Triscelle Publishing, including a recap of our book signing at HPPD, an interview of us coming up next month, and a new contest on Goodreads.
There are lots of things going on right now, and I (Christopher) wanted to let our friends and fans know the latest news. We have another book signing coming up next Saturday, we have winners to announce for our Goodreads contest for Morrigan’s Brood: Crone of War, a contest winner of Morrigan’s Brood wrote a wonderful review, and we have some other tidbits of news to share.
