Cover of KEYS unveiled!

Keys of Awakening

Dear patient reader,

Wow, it’s been such a long haul between posts!  So let me cut to the chase and waste no time in showing you what you’ve come here for.  Here it is, the cover of Keys of Awakening, the sequel to Illiom, Daughter of Prophecy and the second book in the Destiny of Fire trilogy is here!

Gratitude to my designer, Nada Orlić, for doing a fantastic job.

Keys of Awakening

How long before I get my copy???

Pre-ordering will be available soon!  The final product should be available for sale by November and – dare I say it – most definitely before Christmas 2014.

And why should I pre-order?

Being a self-published author, pre-ordering is how I fund my print run.  The sooner I reach my target, the sooner the book will be printed.  What is my target?  A mere $5,000!  So please support me in this and Keys of Awakening will be in your hands before you know it…

    Hi Claudio,

    I’ve just read Illiom and really enjoyed the story. Actually, I found it difficult to put down after a while…
    I am really looking forward to seeing how these characters develop and if anything happens between Tarmel and Illiom (I’d really like it, too) and how the plot thickens.
    As an avid reader of fantasy, and a very close friend of someone in writers group Armadale (whom recommended your book), I was very impressed and my initial questions regarding Illiom were answered throughout the story.
    I did attempt to leave a review on Amazon but alas, I was unable to as I’ve not purchased from them before…
    Anyway, I can’t wait for the next book to come out so please let me know and I do hope we have a good, juicy ending in the final book…I just love happy endings 😉

    Dear Pamela,

    Thank you so much for your comment – I appreciate the feedback. I will put you on the list to make sure that you’re notified when Keys of Awakening is published. Every writer wants for nothing more than to be read, and it seems clear to me that you’re one of the people I’ve written this book for. Thanks again 🙂

    Hi Claudio,
    The cover is very powerful! My partner and I read Illiom to each other…. which is quite painful because I’m tempted to read ahead when he goes to work! And that may have happened one or twice… but my self-discipline is improving!
    Good luck with Keys Of Awakening!
    Blessings to you,
    Selk

    Thanks Selk,
    What a beautiful thing to do!
    I’m waiting to hear from my editor about Keys … ah, the anticipation!
    Blessings back to you also,
    Claudio

    A tantalising extract, Claudio…can’t wait to immerse myself in the book. When do you anticipate we’ll be able to pre-order?
    Love and Blessings

    Dear Gail, just as soon as I get my act together and work out how I’m going to go about it. In other words: soon I hope! Thanks for prompting me, it helps me to get my priorities right…
    Love to you, Claudio

    I look forward to the next 2 books with great pleasure Claudio.
    I think ‘Illiom Daughter of Prophecy’ is one of the best books I’ve read (and I read a LOT).
    Last time it was available more cheaply as a download…will these be available electronically too?
    Thank you.

    Dear Jenni,
    thank you so much for your beautiful endorsement! If that is how you feel about the book then you are definitely one of the people that it was written for. Yes, Keys of Awakening will eventually be also available as an eBook, I just want to get the print version out first as that has provided a better return… my eBook experience has not been terribly satisfying, but it’s still early days. Thanks again for your generous comments. Blessings to you, Claudio

    wow exciting times – I can see why you’ve had other things to do than blogging.

    Thanks Anna – but if truth be known my absence from blogging was just sheer laziness. That plus the fact that I’ve only got so much to say and I’d rather be saying it in a book than a blog…
