Kendis Thompson of Seattle thinks she’s as normal as the next computer geek, and up till now, she’s been right. But her world is about to turn on its ear, for she is the daughter of a Seelie Court mage and her mortal husband–and her faerie blood is awakening. Suddenly the city she’s known all her life is transforming before her eyes. Trolls haunt the bike trails. Fairies and goblins run loose in the streets. An old woman who is not what she seems and a young wanderer running from his past stand ready to defend Seattle–and Kendis–from magical assault. She will need those allies, for the power rising within her is calling her fey kin to the Emerald City to find her. And kill her.

About the Book
Faerie Blood is my very first novel, and was originally published in May 2009 by Drollerie Press. It’s intended to be the first of a trilogy, as well as the first of what I hope to make a whole set of inter-related works, including other novels and shorter stories as well. So far, these other works include “The Blood of the Land”, which appears in Defiance, and various character vignettes right here on the site. Faerie Blood‘s first sequel, Bone Walker, is currently in progress.
In the spring of 2012, I ran a Kickstarter project to re-publish Faerie Blood in a second edition, along with Bone Walker! I’m proud to note that the Kickstarter was successful, and so the new edition of Faerie Blood has been re-released for general sale.
Faerie Blood‘s second edition has had a new copyedit pass to bring its “present day” up from 2003 (when I originally wrote it) to 2012, and I’ve added Dedication, Author’s Notes, Acknowledgements, and About the Author sections as well. I commissioned professional cover art for it as well as the next two books of the trilogy, and my partner Dara Korra’ti did the new layout for the cover and for the print and PDF editions. We’re all really proud of how the book turned out!

Buying From Me:
If you don’t own an ereader, if you specifically prefer to avoid the device-specific vending sites, or if you’d just like to buy the book in any form directly from me, I’ll be happy to hand-sell it to you. The best way to pay me is via Paypal to my gmail address, annathepiper.
If you don’t have a Paypal account, I will also accept equivalent amounts of credit anywhere I can buy books or ebooks. Good choices to consider: Amazon, B&N (eGift cards as I’m a Nook owner and my ebook wishlist for the nook is ginormous), the iTunes/iBookstore, or Powells.com or Thirdplacebooks.com (indie bookstores are love).
I will also take personal checks, but that’s the slowest option!
I have EPUB, MOBI, and PDF copies available, all without DRM, and the price for any of these formats is $3. Note that the EPUB and MOBI versions I have are the ones I also deployed to B&N and Amazon; the PDF is the Kickstarter edition, all 8MB of it, with Dara’s gorgeous layout and retina-display-ready, high-res versions of the front and back cover art along with a bonus extra black-and-white illustration!
For the print copies, if you are local to me or if I can otherwise hand-deliver the book, I ask $15. If I need to ship it to you, I ask $20 to cover the cost of postage and packaging.
Drop me a line via my Contact page, email, or the various social networks if you’d like to make arrangements to buy the book!
