Bill Olson spills the tea on “The Keep”

Welcome to my new blog series, Spill the Tea, all about fantasy, sci-fi, and speculative fiction book news.

Today I’ve got some fun book news to share with you, as Bill Olson stops by to spill the tea on his new fantasy release, The Keep.

OK Bill, spill it!

My professional introduction to the arts was through performing, as an actor, a puppeteer, and a juggler. I got back into writing after a long hiatus and The Keep is my first novel. It’s exciting to have it out in the world, and to find out what people think of it. Meanwhile, I am in the midst of juggling a lot of different projects right now. I want to keep exploring The Covenant Cycle, my stories about gods and mortals, get a sequel to The Keep going, finish a couple of other novels . . . You know, the typical to do list.

How about some tea?

I really enjoy Vanilla Tea (Bigelow’s Frech Vanilla to be exact). A scene in my novel is about making willow bark tea!

2020 Recap

Wow. 2020 was insane.

But it was insane for me in LOTS of GOOD ways! I’ve grown so much as an author this year, this whole blog post is about all the exciting things I’ve accomplished, because why not celebrate the good things? Post contains affiliate links.

I always like to do a “looking back” post this time of year around my birthday.

I’m an optimist. But I struggled a lot this year, too, like everyone else in the world. Being pregnant during covid was an interesting journey, and I don’t think any of us will ever forget this year. But I don’t like to focus on the bad stuff.

I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.

Winston Churchill

So first, here are some of my non-publication achievements:

– I learned how to cut my toddler’s hair! And nobody got hurt. Now if I only wanted to brave my own hair without messing it up…

My Etsy shop did almost 400% better than 2019 (yep, 400%). If you didn’t know, I sell handmade papercut bookmarks. And I came very close to making 1,000 sales before I put it on vacation mode for maternity leave. Next year!!

– I had a baby!

– I gained several more wonderful editing clients and grew my freelance editing portfolio.

– I created tea blends to go with the Arcera Trilogy, and The Alchemyst’s Mirror

Now for the publications. I’m pretty wowed by this list, I’m not going to lie.

I published the Arcera Trilogy ebook boxset February 26

Published Writer’s Notebook March 29

This notebook has been very popular, and I can officially say I sold hundreds of copies this year. I’m excited to see where it goes, and am currently trying to pursue some new sales venues.

Published The Storm King June 9. Still have book # three in the works, but not sure when exactly I’ll have time for it.

Meadowcity Audiobook Released June 17

The Fifth City Audiobook Released July 31

Published Teen Writer’s Notebook August 17

Published Guided Writer’s Notebook September 19

Published The Alchemyst’s Mirror October 27. This has been my most successful fiction release to date. I’m already working on a sequel.

Published The Clockwork Ice Dragon November 10

A Rift Between Cities Audiobook Released December 5

Looking ahead

I’ve got a few things planned for 2021. I’m hoping to release 2 new books in the Everturn Chronicles. After that, well, who knows!

I hadn’t actually planned on releasing all of the books I did in 2020, and you can see how that turned out. I think originally it was just going to be the Writer’s Notebook, and The Storm King. But I had a golden moment in time with my toddler’s sleep schedule where I could write and do work during his nap and while he was in bed mornings and evenings.

Fortunately, as I was already a stay/work at home mom, my schedule didn’t actually change much this year. I just had less places to go/things to do with the toddler during his waking hours. I can’t wait until we can get out and about again, now with his little brother, too!

Let’s all try to remember the good things about 2020, and not the bad.

The Alchemyst’s Mirror was actually a pretty fun read. From the beginning, the plot gets rolling and doesn’t stop for the entire novel. The pacing in this book is really good, and I found Maisie and Petra’s desperate quest to reunite their family to be a narrative that was super compelling and engaging. I loved how the bond between sisters is truly the heart of this book. Maisie and Petra would do anything for each other, and seeing their relationship was really rewarding. I thought the plot and the different factions wanting the Alchemyst’s Mirror was really well-thought out and intriguing. The Alchemyst’s Mirror is a delightful steampunk fantasy about the lengths we will go for family and power. โฃ โฃ Thank you @lizdeltonwrites for the ARC and swag!โฃ โฃ ๐๐Ž๐“๐ƒ Favorite fall hot drink? โฃ โฃ โฃ โฃ #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #bookworm #booklover #bookdragon #bibliophile #bookaholic #readersofinstagram #readerlife #bookish #bookaddict #ireadya #igreads #instareads #bookcommunity #bookobsessed #amreading #bookphotography readersrejoice #spookytime #halloween #tuesday #thealchemystsmirror #newreleasetuesday #lizdelton #arcreview #steampunkfantasy

โš—๏ธAlchemystโ€™s Lab โš™๏ธ โ€ข โ€ข Hello there my spooky, Bookwyrms! I am so thrilled to be featuring @lizdeltonwrites new book The Alchemystโ€™s Mirror for todayโ€™s #clocktobereadathon prompt. The theme is Magical Objects and the firs think I thought of was the Philosopherโ€™s Stone. Red Stone Necklace from @sweetmelissasgiftsetc. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข The Alchemystโ€™s Mirror was officially published just yesterday! I was so excited when I received my bookstagram tour package. It includes an exclusive tea blend called Brass Breakfast, an exclusive book mark made by the author and of course the book itself. I absolutely love the cover design and the color scheme. Of course itโ€™s steampunk af and I look forward to reading it soon. I just been so involved with reading spooky books this month I couldnโ€™t squeeze it in but I will definitely read this in November! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Also some shop news from @orderofchaospins. She will no longer be producing any Harry Potter inspired designs due to WB cracking down on fans selling thier art based on the series. So that means once her poster designs sell out the will not be returning. Link in my bio use code CLOCKWORK15 to save! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Question: What are some of your favorite magical objects? Can be from any book or show or video game. Please just let be know what itโ€™s from wan what it does. TIA โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Answer: From the Wizarding World I really love the Ravenclaw Diadem before it was turned into a Horcrux. Having seemingly infinite wisdom sound amazing but also a bit unsettling. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #thealchemystsmirror #lizdelton #steampunk #steampunkstyle #steampunktea #steampumkin #yareads #yabooks #yabookstagram #bookish #bookdragon #bookwyrm #booklover #bookreader #sweetmelissagiftsetc #orderofchaospins #enamelpins #spooky #spookyvibes #spookyseason #bookmark #newbook

Chaos Looming (The Legion of Pneumos Book 1) by H.B. Reneau

Release date: October 1, 2020
Sub-genre: Young Adult
Content rating: PG-13

Build more than you break. Heal more than you destroy.ย 

But what if chaos canโ€™t be tamed?

For centuries, the Legion of Pneumos has lurked behind the seat of power in Loren. To preserve order across worlds, they are charged with battling chaos in all its forms, no matter the cost.

Keira Altman, the newest Legionnaire, has spent years perfecting the art of wielding pneuma and channeling order out of chaos. Ripped from her own world and into one she barely understands, the only thing Keira knows for certain is that she has a purpose. Now, if only she knew what it was.

Yet when word arrives that the Regio lies on his deathbed, Keiraโ€™s new world begins to crumble around her. As the specter of a peasant uprising looms large, and political maneuvering threatens to unravel the fabric of society, Keira realizes that her only hope of avoiding the coming turmoil may lie in the very institutions sheโ€™s fought so hard against. But can she master the forces of chaos without losing herself to the chaos within? And what if the price of order proves too high to pay?


Seer’s Sight (Tales of Tuatha Book 1) by Whitney McKinnon

Release date: October 9, 2020
Sub-genre: Epic Fantasy/ Mythology
Content rating: PG

A phantom rider in the night. A magic bracelet hidden below the earth. An alabaster throne in a fiery palace.

If you stumble upon a well-kept secret in the woods, you can bet that life is bound to become…well, otherworldly.

Sage Sallow is a quiet girl with a mission. Determined to solve her brotherโ€™s mysterious disappearance, Sage soon discovers more than she could have ever dreamed of in the off-limits woods behind Manorport Academy.

But when a seance goes awry one stormy Halloween night, dark gods arrive with an agenda of their own. And portals that were once closed are now open. Itโ€™s up to Sage and her magical new friends to find her brotherโ€” and to save more than just one world.

Magic? Easy. But when youโ€™re the owner of a powerful torc with godlike powers, things can get a little complicated.


Dragon Prince (The Royal Quest Series Book 1) by Ashley McLeo and Kelly N. Jane

Release date: October 13, 2020
Sub-genre: YA/NA Urban Fantasy, Mythical Creatures
Content rating: PG

Violet is crazy.

At least the chatter inside her head makes her think so.

She’ll follow her mother into a padded cell and live out her days lost in her own world.

When the voice of a man with intriguing cabernet eyes enters her mind, she gets drawn into danger. And he has some news for herโ€”sheโ€™s not crazy.

Sheโ€™s supernatural.

How does the mysterious stranger know this about her? Heโ€™s a dragon prince, and he needs her assistance.

War looms in Roneโ€™s homeland. Heโ€™s the only chance the dragons have to survive, but only if he secures his precious cargo in time.

Violet is the key to saving his race. He doesnโ€™t know how, but he canโ€™t deny the connection between them. And neither can she.

But when the supernaturals who rule the human world catch wind of a dragon in their midst, they want Rone goneโ€”no matter the cost.

Can they evade other supernaturals and fulfill Roneโ€™s mission? Or will Violet and Rone die trying?


Key of Magic (The Key Collector Book 1) by Laurel Night

Release date: October 14, 2020
Sub-genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Content rating: PG-13

A magical key, a sassy mouth, and wicked ninja skills have made me a legend among thieves.

I can unlock the past and steal anything, anytime, anywhere.

But solving my fatherโ€™s murder? Two years later I still have zero leads.

Thanks to my fatherโ€™s debt, The Thieves’ Guild has me working shady jobs that bring me no closer to the truth. Instead, Iโ€™ve got my hands full with dangerous magical artifacts and my ex-turned-rival who is desperate to see me fail.

Nineteen years in this world of magic and thievery have taught me to trust no one. But I canโ€™t do this alone, and if I donโ€™t figure out who spilled my fatherโ€™s blood, thereโ€™s a good chance Iโ€™ll be the next one to turn up dead.

The clock is ticking, and the only thing I canโ€™t steal is more time.


The Cup and the Prince (Kingdom of Curses and Shadows) by Day Leitao

Release date: October 15, 2020
Sub-genre: Young Adult
Content rating: PG-13

One prince wants her out. 
Another wants her as a pawn. 
Someone wants her dead. 

Zora wants to win the cup and tell them all to screw themselves.  

Yes, 17-year-old Zora cheated her way into the Royal Games, but it was for a very good reason. Her ex-boyfriend thought she couldn’t attain glory on her own. Just because she was a girl. And he was the real cheater. So she took his place. 

Now she’s competing for the legendary Blood Cup, representing the Dark Valley. It’s her chance to prove her worth and bring glory for her people. If she wins, of course. 

But winning is far from easy. The younger prince thinks she’s a fragile damsel who doesn’t belong in the competition. Determined to eliminate her at all costs, he’s stacking the challenges against her. Zora hates him, hates him, hates him, and will do anything to prove him wrong.  

The older prince is helping her, but the cost is getting Zora entangled in dangerous flirting games. Flirting, the last thing she wanted. 

And then there’s someone trying to kill her. 


Amasai Rising (The Amasai Rising Trilogy Book 1) by Stevie Rae Causey

Release date: October 15, 2020
Sub-genre: Coming of Age
Content rating: PG

Finding out youโ€™re a princess destined to stop a war sounds great, until it actually happens.

Running isnโ€™t new to Azlana. She ran from the harsh words of the kids back home. She ran from certain death when she fled the human city as heir to the elven throne.
“It only makes sense to run again.” The Darkness whispers to her when sheโ€™s swept away to a hidden school and thrust into a role she doesnโ€™t understand.
And that isnโ€™t all this new voice brings. Images of death fill her dreams until she can’t tell where her thoughts end and The Darkness begins. What if its showing her the future of her kingdom?

She has to run to save everyone she loves.
But if she runs, she dooms them to a war that may never end.

If she doesnโ€™t assume the throne and unite elves and man, war will end magic forever.
But if she stays, the Darkness may overcome all.


Tompkin’s School: For The Resurrected (A Supernatural Academy Trilogy Book 3) by Tabi Slick

Release date: October 20, 2020
Sub-genre: Dark Fantasy
Content rating: PG

A boarding school at war. A cursed book calling her name.

But time is running out. Every second, Credanโ€™s power grows from within his grave threatening to possess them entirely.

Will the twins be able to conquer their inner demons before the final battle crashes down on them killing everyone they know and love?


The Alchemyst’s Mirror by Liz Delton

Release date: October 27, 2020
Sub-genre: Steampunk / Gaslamp Fantasy
