Two of Solarwyrm’s Books in Oakland Public Library

My apologies for the lack of updates over the last several months. I didn’t even announce when Marked by Scorn was officially released and available to buy online. It was officially released on July 31st, and you can buy both the ebook and paperback from Amazon. If you buy the paperback on Amazon, you can download the ebook for free through their matchbook program.

Dominica Malcolm with two of her books at Oakland Public Library, Cesar Chavez BranchI’ve been pretty busy primarily with improv over the past few months, with little time to dedicate to promoting Solarwyrm’s books. However, after spending a lot of time over the summer borrowing graphic novels from my local library, I was invited to suggest others for them to add to their collection. I ended up asking if they’d be interested in having my books in their collection, and since my local branch has an excellent focus on diversity, they were delighted to hear about my books.

As of yesterday, two of my books, Adrift and Marked by Scorn: An Anthology Featuring Non-Traditional Relationships are now featured new books at Oakland Public Library, in the Cesar Chavez Branch. The Branch Manager took a photograph of me with the books to share on Facebook. If you’re in Oakland, you can check them out in their catalogue system (Adrift and Marked by Scorn), or if you’re elsewhere in California near a library that uses the Link+ interlibrary borrowing system, you should also be able to look for them there.

Launching Adrift by Dominica Malcolm

Now that we’ve finished with the release of Fae Fatales: A Fantasy Noir Anthology, we’re getting ready for the release of our next book.

Let me first introduce myself. Up until now, all the other Solarwyrm posts have been made by Jax Goss. I’m Dominica Malcolm, one of the writers from Fae Fatales. Like that book, I am running a crowdfunding campaign for my novel, Adrift.

Cover of Adrift by Dominica Malcolm

It’s the 21st century, and Jaclyn Rousseau is not where she should be. 1661 disappeared before her eyes, and there’s no way home. That matters not to Jaclyn—she lost her lover, and everything else that meant anything to her, in the West Indies.

In an adventure that crosses time and the Atlantic, a murderous pirate must find a place for herself in this new world.

Can she escape her past, or will it catch up with her?

Unlike Fae Fatales, money is not being raised to pay writers and artists, but instead to go toward marketing, promotion, and advertising costs. 20% of the net profits will also be donated to the World Literacy Foundation.

As a promotion for the launch of the campaign, we are running a giveaway. You can win copies of Adrift, Fae Fatales: A Fantasy Noir Anthology, or Jax Goss’s The Edge of the Map. Check it out!

There is also another way to earn a free ebook copy of Adrift. You will need to head over to the campaign on Indiegogo, and have a login. Once you do, share the campaign link with your unique Indiegogo ID at the end (if you’re logged in, you can just copy the URL from the share section of the page, or the URL bar in your browser, or even use the share buttons on the page). If you help raise $10 or more through the campaign, I will send you the ebook.

If you haven’t yet had the chance to pick up Fae Fatales, you can also get the ebook version for free or at a slight discount through Adrift‘s Indiegogo campaign, when buying the novel. Check out the campaign page for details.
