To recap a well-discussed plan, Fire On All Sides will soon be reissued with correct agendered dragon pronouns. This will come before the release of Book 2, The Enfolding Abyss.
The 3rd Sequence of Fire On All Sides audiobook readings on the Eva Elasigue Bandcamp are now available free to download, as well as the 1st & 2nd Sequences featuring music by Kalya Scintilla. The sound quality of the 3rd Sequence is improved with mastering by Christopher Brakk Staven, though music has not been added, since…
The audiobook project for Bones of Starlight, hosted first on Bandcamp, will start anew after the reissue of Fire On All Sides. I’m thrilled to say that this will be made with the music of electronic DJ, Phutureprimitive!
His music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, he also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a physical experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, the music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth than typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, he speaks to both the mind and body.

Speaking of Fire On All Sides…
The above logo art happened to be made in the same month as my first writing studio sublet 3/14, which taught me a lot about how I could grow as an artistic creator. Here’s to the landmarks of a journey.
Audiobooks on my Bandcamp! The first audiobook is now free to download, as is the second.
On the second release (3rd sequence), the tracks have been mastered for better reading quality, but music has not been added; 1st & 2nd Sequence album still features musical bookends by Kalya Scintilla. The audiobooks will be reissued in entirety, after the dragon pronoun-adjusted version of Fire On All Sides is released before Bones of Starlight Book 2, The Enfolding Abyss.
Find it on these shelves!
Chapter-plate hardcover of book 1, Fire On All Sides on the New Fiction rack up front at the San Juan Island Public Library in the town of Friday Harbor. Bottom shelf facing, third from left. Sharing uptime with Assassin’s Fate & The Book of Joan, both authors whom I have met. Thanks, town of long residence where I live! I hope people will enjoy it and feel free to tell me how they liked it.
(Signed) Paperback volumes of Fire On All Sides are now available for sale at the Alternative Library bookstore in Bellingham, WA. As of picture, far right upper, that’s left corner shelf by the doorway – sharing space with A Language Older Than Words & Promethea, something near and something dear.
Come out to the Friday Harbor Library on Wednesday, April 26th for a book reading and discussion. As seen on the front door of Griffin Bay Bookstore… next to George Orwell.
I dug into the archives for more of the readings from my visit to Van Loon Gallery in Santa Fe last August.
