So here is something I’m EXTREMELY excited to share with you – a cover highlight on the upcoming book “Orphan’s Song“ by Gillian Bronte Adams!
I’ve long enjoyed Gillian’s fabulous blog, and a couple years back had the privilege of reading some of the early chapters of “Orphan’s Song” … I was blown away by even that little glimpse. Let me just say I’m positively giddy at the idea of it being published and reading the whole thing!
“Orphan’s Song”, book 1 of The Songkeeper Chronicles, is a YA Christian fantasy novel, and will be published this fall by Enclave Publishing (formerly Marcher Lord Press, which published one of my absolute favorite fantasy trilogies ever, The Blood of Kings Trilogy by Jill Williamson). I’m very excited!
Here is a link to the Kickstarter Campaign for Orphan’s Song and Enclave’s other titles releasing this fall. Be sure to check it out!
And now, just take a look at this GORGEOUS cover!! (I literally squealed aloud when I first saw it. ❤ It’s so pretty and totally captures the feel of the parts I read — it makes me want to read the book so much! I can’t wait till it officially comes out and I can dive into the tale, and put it on my shelf!)

Coming Fall 2014
Every generation has a Songkeeper – one chosen to keep the memory of the Song alive. And in every generation, there are those who seek to destroy the chosen one.
When Birdie’s song attracts the attention of a notorious Khelari soldier, she is captured and forced into a centuries old conflict plagued with ancient secrets and betrayals. Rescued by traveling peddler Amos McElhenny, Birdie flees the clutches of her enemies, determined to discover the truth behind the Song’s power.
Ky Huntyr has stolen many a thing in his time as a street-wise thief and senior member of the Underground—a gang of orphans banded together to survive—but he never thought he would be guilty of successfully stealing a priceless treasure from the Khelari and bringing their wrath on his comrades. Haunted by the tragic consequences of his raid, Ky joins Birdie and Amos in hopes of drawing the Khelari after him to keep the Underground safe.
But war soon threatens all of Leira, and the enemy is closing in. When Amos’ shadowed past threatens to undo them all, Birdie is forced to face the destiny that awaits her as the Songkeeper of Leira.
*shivers in delight* Doesn’t it sound fabulous? You’re going to want to keep an eye out for this one, folks! And here is a bit more about the talented Gillian! (Be sure to go follow her blog. It’s one of my very favorites. Her fantasy posts are unequaled. ❤ )
