With the bankruptcy of Coteau Books, all rights to my young-adult fantasy series The Shards of Excaliburreverted to me–which has allowed me to put out brand-new ebook versions under the auspices of Shadowpaw Press, with new print editions to follow. Designer Tania Craan has graciously allowed me to continue using her wonder covers–you can see why I didn’t want to replace those! Links to where you can buy the new versions (plus the existing, wonderful audiobooks, narrated by Elizabeth Klett) are above.
The Shards of Excalibur is a five-book series telling the story of Ariane Forsythe, a teen from Regina, Saskatchewan, who discovers she is the heir of the Lady of the Lake of Arthurian legend. With the help of her unexpected sidekick, Wally Knight, she must discover all five pieces of King Arthur’s legendary sword Excalibur before Merlin, in his present-day guise as Rex Major, wealthy computer magnate, can do so…and launch a war to seize control of both Earth and his own world of Faerie.
Three of the books were finalists for major Canadian science fiction and fantasy awards. Song of the Swordwas longlisted for the Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic for Best Young Adult Novel, while both Twist of the Blade and Door into Faerie were shortlisted for the Best Young Adult Novel Aurora Award.
