You can now enjoy the entire 1st Sequence (1-13) of Bones of Starlight: Fire Within as an audiobook via Bandcamp – read by the author, with music by Phutureprimitive. If you appreciate what you hear, please donate as you download your copy!
This audiobook version is the first release featuring the adjusted text of book 1, now with standard agendered pronouns for Dragons, as they are in Bones of Starlight universe. Look forward to the print reissue, as well as the online re-run (updated story straight through, doubled sections, no interruptions) to follow the original serial completion of Book 2: Abyss Surrounding.

I’m excited and pleased to share with you the opening credits song that will preface the full audiobook narration for Fire On All Sides. This haunting song by Jillian Ann (as remixed by Phutureprimitive) is thematically on point with full blown intensity! You can enjoy the complete unedited version by following the picture link, and you can also explore the other remixes on Jillian Ann’s full album. This song is also a part of Phutureprimitive’s album, Searching for Beauty in the Darkest Places Pt. 1.
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.

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.
