Seems I ran into my limit of emotes on the other journal (which means no more shiny bullets and stars), and it was becoming a bit of a beast anyway. (You guys are so awesome with all of your publishing.
) So this will be Part Two of the epic journal promotion project. If you missed out on any of the awesomeness that occurred before this journal, check here:
This here is mah pimp stickThis is the little corner of dA where I show you who on dA is putting their work out into the professional and semiprofessional publishing world. Each published deviant (or category, as needed) is highlighted with a star. Their accomplishments are listed in black bullet point for easy location. New deviants should appear toward the top of the page, and new listings for deviants already here will appear at the top of their individual lists. All new entries will be tagged with a shiny label for easy location. Having trouble finding one of your favorites? Try Ctrl+F, then type the name of your deviant. Still can't find them? Well, maybe it's time you dropped me a suggestion, eh?
Take your time, look these over, and if you enjoyed any of this, be kind enough to leave a review on their page. Reviews are one of the things that bring in more readers. Remember, writers need all the support (and traffic) they can get. If you know a deviant who published their work, drop me a link, and I'l
Go ahead. Don't worry. We'll wait until you get back.
Back already? Great! Same guidelines apply as with the last journal. New entries float toward the top and with a
icon next to them. Each published deviant gets a star and each project gets a shiny bullet to help you find them. If you need help searching for a specific deviant, just use Ctrl+F to open a search box. If I've missed anyone in this journal or the last one, feel free to let me know. The more exposure published deviants get, the better! CailinLiath

French Letters: "The world of the Jinn, a world of fur and claws and howling nights, escapes to ours when a queen and her knight run away together. Unfortunately, their bliss is short-lived, and a heartbroken Almandine is separated from the love of her life, Bertrand. Forced to return alone to the world of the Jinn, Almandine makes a vow to someday be reunited with Bertrand. In the quaint French town of Oublier, a lost and human Bertrand finds new friends, but they too have their own battles. Some endure a daily struggle to be accepted by the ones who try so hard to love them for who they are. Brothers learn to accept their sisters for who they love. Everyone must learn to let go of the past. Amidst this world of love, friends, and forgetting, it is vital that Bertrand remember his Almandine."

"Branded a witch and exiled after a dishonorable display at the king’s annual tournament, quiet Grace Hilren is forced to uproot her life of luxury as a lord’s daughter and move to the slums of the port city, Glenbard. But Grace carries a secret. Though trained to be a fine lady, she also learned to handle a sword and has made it her mission to eradicate evil and injustice where she finds it. Even in exile, Grace continues her work under the given name of Death Dealer. Her nightly deeds bring her to the notice of the self-proclaimed King of Thieves, Marcus. When the king’s power is threatened by a rival named Mac, the Death Dealer unwittingly becomes a pawn in the struggle between thieves for control of the lower city. The game becomes dangerous as Grace realizes she may not be able to best this usurper." Find Fallen Grace on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Whiskey Creek Press.

But does she dare show her TRUE self? Can a human being love someone so different? At the same time, plots unfold that hold the human race in the balance. A battle of good vs evil ensues and the meaning of true love is revealed." You can find The Trilogy of Morgalla on Amazon and CreateSpace.
"In the twilight of the year 2003, a stranger arrives in the tiny town of Burns, Colorado. Whispers begin to fly as bodies appear, savagely mutilated, throughout the neighborhood, and the responsibility falls on two monstrously unprepared high school students to uncover the truth before the undead can destroy their hometown." You can find In the Shadow of the Mountains on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes&Noble, and CreateSpace.
"Sebring Campbell is a reasonable man, an agent of Justice, a creature of logic, a product of nineteenth-century rational thought. But there is a monster on the loose, a criminal turned demon who is stripping Sebring's life away, one love at a time. The monster Rothers leads Sebring on a merry chase of blood and shadow, a chase that can only end in the noose or in Hell." The Truth of the Matter can be found on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes&Noble, and CreateSpace. "Lenny is good at teaching physics. He is good at fixing things, making friends, and not attracting attention. He is good at being a medium, helping spirits pass beyond the Veil. But as a vampire incapable of violence, he has always been a bit of a joke. All it takes is a drink in a hotel bar, a stumble into the wrong place at the wrong time, to run him afoul of Sebastian Duran, a lunatic who controls other people’s minds better than he can control his own. Torn away from everything he knows, trapped and starved and under constant mental assault, Lenny’s best hope is Kim Reed, a wizard tasked with bringing down Duran. Kim cannot believe that Lenny is evil, but neither can she hide him, and while she battles for his freedom, Lenny is forced to confront his own potential for monstrosity." The Medium (Liminality) can be found on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes&Noble, and CreateSpace. "The day Connor cornered me in the library, I thought he was cracked. The day he covered my walls with crosses and filled my apartment with garlic, I thought he was psychotic. The day he killed someone on the floor in my living room, I had no choice but to believe. This is my last confession, the story of the years we spent hunting Them and the mistakes we made. This is my memorial to the people we lost. This is my realization of the importance of Proof. " Find Proof: A Short Tale of the Undead" for free on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes&Noble. Face of Glass
: "On an ancient island paradise, an ambitious foreign merchant overturns tradition. But even as finely-crafted stone gives way before steel, an ancient power seems to offer a lowly slave one slim chance to change his fate, and restore his tribe to its former glory. This power, however, comes at a terrible price: it threatens everything he had hoped to gain."
: Written one-a-day in July 2013, these thirty-one more very short stories feature a wide (and often surprising) cast of characters: a drunken angel, a baby-themed supervillain, a man who spontaneously turns into two mildly annoyed horses. This book is for everyone who's ever wondered: "Just what would happen if Hydrogen quit its day job to become a country music star...?"
OCR is Not the Only Font
-- "Silly, surreal and sometimes serious, these thirty-one very short stories cover a vast range of subjects and themes. Written entirely during July 2012, these flash fiction pieces are accompanied by a deeply unscientific analysis of the challenge that spawned them: to write thirty-one stories in thirty-one days."
"Reflections" made Honorable Mention in Binnacle's Ninth Annual Ultra-Short Story Competition
Revisiting "Sed Non Satiata" of Charles Baudelaire (A Critical Essay)
-- "This book neither simply offers a critic of "Sed Non Satiata" nor a new translation of said poem found in Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal - a book of poems translated as "The Flowers of Evil." It projects light on Jeanne Duval, Baudelaire's mistress, by providing important background information about her. Jeanne Duval was Haitian and biracial. The book penetrates her circumstances and reconstructs the attitude of 19th century France by using history and the prevailing ideological constructs of anthropologists of that period, concerning race mixing between Black and White."
Invocation of Dawn- Land of the Sky
-- "While on vacation in the former port town, Sin City, the young Fae princess Souri Ada Lodette discovers a mysterious heirloom in her possession. As she tries to understand what it is and where she has seen it before, she comes face to face with the notorious murderer known as Roo the Ripper, who just happens to be in search of the same object! Who exactly is this man... And why does he call her Solas?"

"Mute, heartless, and tormented by auditory hallucinations, Madeleine Lavoie never questions why her family has hidden her from the world. But the night her brother casts her out, she learns the mysterious voice she thought existed only in her mind is no delusion, and no matter how hard she tries, she can never disobey it. Now Madeleine must find her own voice in a cacophony of powerful tyrants, monsters, and gods. If she fails, she will forfeit her life and the lives of everyone who loves her. But if she succeeds, she may finally gain the ability to love someone in return." Find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and CreateSpace.
