Ah, love. A many splendored thing. Here is a rather unusual love story, sweet and strange as could only happen in the post-magical reality of the Indigo Springs "event." The sequel to Indigo Springs was published in April. Here's a tasty tale to tickle a reader's fancy. Author A. M. Dellamonica is writing lots more terrific new fantasy, having just agreed to write three novels set in the world of "Among the Silvering Herd."

We're thrilled!
