My Dearest Mellis...

Fenrris Pictures - Character form Age 2
By: Yue
It's no surprise that Mellis is a favorite.  He is funny, lovable, loyal, caring, a warrior in his own right and a bad-ass when he needs to be.

He is easily one to fall in love with.  I can see some lucky lady having him for a mate and laughing throughout their entire relationship.  And she would, too, as I can see Tharin's youngest cousin to be a one woman elf.

A reader from Italy sent a personal request to have a spin-off with this favorite elf of the Velesi realm.  She, along with  many others.  It seems readers are more interested to read about his and Alorn's adventures in Pathen than any other story coming from Velesi, including The Dragon Seed series.

I assure you there will be a spin-off for the two warrior elves in the near future.  I do have two other projects I need to get out first, but I will at least have a base story line for our two heroes by the end of 2013.

Until then, good reading to all!

So, I have felt the backlash in releasing The Whispering; all of it pertaining to Alorn.  There is an outcry that he should get his own story, that he deserves his own happiness (or at least his pursuit of it).  Which brings me to ask...where have you been since The Binding?  I gave subtle hints to his first admiration for Lily that blossomed to something more as the story went on.  I mean you had to know by the time you were done reading The Drifting, right?

I have received dozens of emails from readers who want to be the one to bring this warrior elf to his knees.  

*Sigh*  It's always the dark, brooding, quiet ones...

Thank you...

I had mixed emotions writing this final installment to The Velesi Trilogy, a very bittersweet journey.  Although Tharin and Lily's story ends here, there are so many more from Velesi.  Some of the characters will start their own journey and tell their own stories.  There will be new characters from the Sidhe realm who will emerge and create their own adventures.  And we may even find Tharin and Lily honoring us with a cameo.  They will always be the closest to my heart.  After all, it was their story that started it all.

I want to "thank you" for all the support by purchasing the Velesi books and making it a part of your world, even for a "blink of an eye" in your lifetime.   I especially want to thank those who took the time to leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads.  No matter the ranking, I am grateful for your time.  Without your encouragement and constructive criticism I would not have had the courage to continue writing and complete the trilogy.

Tomorrow, when The Whispering is released, I wish you joy, laughter, sorrow, anger, despair and love.  Whatever the emotion, I want you to feel as you read the final installment.  And remember, no matter where you are and what time of day you read The Whispering, we all have shared a moment in Velesi and we all have loved the same cat. 


P.S.  Don't forget to stop by tomorrow at my FB page and get a chance to win one of three $20.00 Amazon Gift Card.  The give-away will be from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (PST).

Until next time, good reading to all.

I want to give a big thanks to Ms. Andromeda Nurelf for her hard work and effort in making the first installment of the Velesi Trilogy available in Italiano. If not for her love and support of the Velesi story, this tremendous endeavor would not be possible.

And a special thanks to all fans of the Velesi trilogy for your  love and support during Lily's and Tharin's journey.
