Legacy of the black unicorn

June 21, 2016 Author: lesliesoule

To me, the black unicorn of Fallenwood is a symbol of defiance, in the face of insurmountable odds. Well it looks like I’ve gotten the chance to play unicorn lately, what with me going down to the California Senate Rules Committee and giving them a piece of my mind, standing there together with the folks of Pick Justice, and trying to fight corruption. Exciting, epic times, to be sure. Writer Leslie will be back eventually, but for now, I’m fighting the good fight.

I’m Still Here

June 10, 2016 Author: lesliesoule

Hey there, everyone. I’m still around, and still writing. Things have been rough for me, but I am fighting through my difficulties and should be back to writing novels soon. In the meantime, I have had the opportunity to think about what sets me apart as a writer, and to come up with the tenets of my “personal brand”, after having read a book suggesting that I ought to. I will be adding these revelations to the “About Me” page.

Soule Crusher

I love Kickstarter. The good people of the Red Sun SCA group created a drink for me.

Betrayer is coming!

July 19, 2015 Author: lesliesoule

I just received word that I have been granted a contract with Melange Books, for the publication of Betrayer – book 3 of my Fallenwood Chronicles. “I’m so excited! And I just can’t hide it….I’m about to lose control and I think I like it…” (If you don’t get the reference, it’s ok. You have to be old like me. Lol.)

Editing Hybrid Space

May 22, 2015 Author: lesliesoule

I’ve finally started editing Hybrid Space again. We’re getting closer, and the story is getting tighter. It’s coming together well. These past couple of years, I’ve been through hell and I’ve gotten stuck in life, and it’s been really hard to gain any kind of momentum. I’ve doubted my ability to get things done and make things happen. But I, personally (not just my character Ash) have seen a mighty Empire crumble to its knees, and I’ve helped kick off some projects with Kickstarter, since Brenda Novak’s auction has taken a break this year, and I’ve kept my ship going. So there’s that. There’s always that.

Regaining Momentum

April 1, 2015 Author: lesliesoule

My friend came over this weekend, to help me edit a bit of Hybrid Space. As you know, editing isn’t my forte’. Writing, I’ve got. But anyway, I’d stopped writing for a while to focus on author promo, and it didn’t seem to be really getting me anywhere OR making me happy. So I’m going to go back to focusing on the writing portion of things. After all, I’ve got to finish the Fallenwood series. Someone’s got to finish off Malegaunt, before he destroys everything! It’s taken me a long time to build myself up, and I haven’t always known what to do, but here I come. Heroes always face the toughest of odds, and I aim to be the hero my generation has been waiting for. 😉

Local Authors Book Festival?

March 2, 2015 Author: lesliesoule

So this morning, I put in my application to the Sacramento Local Authors Book Festival, at the public library. We shall see. I’m always on the lookout for promo opportunities for authors. Seems kinda slim pickin’s out here…

Fallenwood Blog Tour

February 13, 2015 Author: lesliesoule

The Fallenwood Blog Tour is coming!!!

I love it when I get a lot of participants in these blog tour events. This banner is now hyperlinked, so you can go directly to the Goddess Fish page for the tour, where you’ll be able to see all the stops. I love questions – about anything – the novels, short stories, writing, publishing, etc. Keep ’em coming! Plus, if you’re the lucky winner, you could get a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card, just for participating.

This morning’s changes…

February 12, 2015 Author: lesliesoule

Wow – for being so rusty at messing with html, I’m not doing so bad. I added some instructions for printing out The Queen & The Court Jester as a mini graphic novel, and I’ve updated the page for Fallenwood. Took out a couple pages that were making the site too bulky. Added an Appearances page, which I’ll add to later. Things are coming along. I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee.
