BEHOLD THE SIGHT OF IT
If you haven’t heard yet, Susan has revealed the project she was working on during the summer; the Sightwitch novella!
This precious novella was supposed to be released before Windwitch, but there were some setbacks and it got pushed behind. With Bloodwitch still on the way and in process, Susan had the spark hit her and the flow kept going. Next thing you know, Sightwitch was born! This book will be about the lovely Ryber Fortiza. We get to go on an adventure where we see her life, how she came to be and how she met her soul—Kullen Ikray.
Before I reveal the cover of the book, you can read the description of the story:
“Before Safi and Iseult battled a Bloodwitch…
Before Merik returned from the dead…
Ryber Fortiza was a Sightwitch Sister at a secluded convent, waiting to be called by her goddess into the depths of the mountain. There she would receive the gift of foretelling. But when that call never comes, Ryber finds herself the only Sister without the Sight.
Years pass and Ryber’s misfit pain becomes a dull ache, until one day, Sisters who already possess the Sight are summoned into the mountain, never to return. Soon, Ryber is the only Sister left. Now, it is up to her to save her Sisters, though she does not have the Sight — and though she does not know what might await her inside the mountain.
On her journey underground, she encounters a young captain named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he got there. Together, the two travel ever deeper in search of answers, their road filled with horrors, and what they find at the end of that road will alter the fate of the Witchlands forever.”
ARE YOU EXCITED? BECAUSE I’M EXCITED! This novella will rip my soul, especially after knowing what had happened in Truthwitch and Windwitch already.
Now for the cover you have all been waiting for:
Look at that! The scenery, the illustration, the placement of everything and the effects 😍. The photography was designed by the talented Scott Grunando and it was illustrated by Rhys Davies. at first I freaked when I saw the name as I had thought it was my friend who had the greatest honour to design this piece for Sooz. Turns out the last name was slightly different, haha. I cannot wait to have this book, it would look so good with the rest. If they’ll have the UK covers, I wonder how the UK covers will look, both the alternate and seal version!
Susan said she isn’t sure yet as to whether we are also getting a UK version of the book cover but you never know, Witchlanders! Unfortunately, with Sightwitch being published for January 2018, Bloodwitch had to be moved to 2019. Now, this was not Susan’s decision so please don’t throw hate her way. If anything, we should be grateful that we get 2 books in the next two years waiting for us 🙌.
Susan also shared something I have been waiting for, the freaking playlist! She always creates one for each book she writes and I listen to all of them at work when I need to focus or just to distress. Now I have Sightwitch to add on my list and the link is available below for you to access. If you can’t access them, I also took a snippet of her list so you can find them yourselves to add on your tunes.
