The Dead Land is another name for Selath, the area to the west of Challen. Since the time of Seasons' Beginnings, Salth, who styles herself the Demigoddess of Time, has drained all the life out of the region. Nothing, not plants or animals or even soil microbes, lives there. Anything that tries to enter the Dead Land doesn't last very long. Because of this curse, we see little of The Dead Land in the four books currently available. That will change in Book Five, Summon the Seasons.
This is also the first Wednesday in April, so it's also post day for the Insecure Writer's Support Group. The co-hosts this month are Christopher D. Votey, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Fundy Blue, and Chrys Fey. The question this month is a timely one: Have you taken advantage of the annual A to Z Challenge in terms of marketing, networking, publicity for your book? What were the results?
Obviously, this month I am using the A-Z Challenge to publicize my fantasy Season Avatars series. It's still too early to tell what the results will be. I also have a few paid promotions running this month, but since I know when they are, I can attribute any download spikes appropriately. In the meantime, please feel free to download Seasons' Beginnings if you like the premise of this series; the prequel is permafree!
