It’s been a busy 2015, so busy, that this little gem in my collection never really got the fanfare that it deserved for when it was published back in June. I was looking at it again the other day and feeling I really was quite proud of it. So here I am, giving it a bit of proper spotlight!
It is, of course, “Memory’s Wake – The Official Illustrated Companion Guide”
I designed this book originally with one idea in mind…
What if people who read my story in ebooks want to have a hard copy of all the illustrations from the trilogy?
I wanted to create a book to solve that need. A beautiful collectors item which brings back the memory (teehee) of the story and world and characters.
As I started creating it, it became something more.
I started separating all the illustrations into groups- Characters, Worlds, Magic, Locations. And then I started writing. I chose all of my favourite quotes from the trilogy and included them. I wrote information and backstory on all the elements of the books. I included secret insight into what I was thinking as I wrote this tale. And it all came together into this beautiful celebration of all things Memory’s Wake. I flick through it and I’m instantly taken back into the story, back into the moments and emotions, and back with my characters again.
Here’s a sneak peak at the table of contents-
And here is what it looks like inside-
If you loved Memory’s Wake and want a way to revisit the characters and world again, whether you read on ebook or not, this is a great way to be taken back to Avall again and learn more about it at the same time. You can, of course, get them directly from me, signed, at http://selinafenech.com/shop/memorys-wake-illustrated-companion-guide/
If you’re not in Australia like me and want cheaper or faster shipping and don’t mind going without a signature (Pssst! I’m planning on offering nice signed bookplates you can stick in your books-from-other-shops soon!), you can grab the Companion Guide on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1QxtbGC
There is also a slightly cheaper paperback option available there.
Of course, if you haven’t read Memory’s Wake yet and want to speed through the ebooks, you can get the completed trilogy as an ebook box set for around $8 and change at http://amzn.to/1NfkY9A
I wouldn’t recommend reading the Companion Guide before the trilogy itself. It’s FULL of spoilers, nothing held back at all!
