So one year ago today the first Ouroboros Cycle book was released. Now I can tell you that when an author or artist releases something that they’ve spent ten years making, there’s a great deal of suspense and uncertainty about whether it will be well received. When you’ve put so much of yourself into a project, you’re always terrified that no one will like it.

Little did I know then the incredible response that The Ouroboros Cycle, Book One: A Monster’s Coming Of Age Story was to receive. Over the course of the past year an incredible fandom seems to have developed around the series, and I am both humbled and honored by it. The "Sassassins" as the fans have taken to calling themselves (because they, like the characters in the book, have “sass”) are some of the most enthusiastic, friendly, and clever fans I have ever seen. They have tea parties and online hang-outs, marvelous inside jokes, and are some of the most welcoming people you’ve ever met. They encourage each other, they invite new fans to join them, and are just generally awesome.

I cannot describe how much it means to me to have a fandom such as this forming around my work. It’s wonderful to think that my writing has affected people in this way, and I hope that it continues to move people and bring them together like this.

I want to thank everyone for their enthusiastic support for the book. I’m humbled and delighted and I am incredibly grateful.

So happy Sass Day to one and all!

(By the way, I did not coin the term “Sass Day”. That Sassassins did, and I love them for it.)

Cosplay Guide for The Ouroboros Cycle
 
Ekaterine Shashavani

Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Hazel
Height: 5’8”
Weight: 150 lbs.
Build: Medium
Year of Birth: 1802 (apparent age 26 as of 1887)

Clothing:

At Home:
Among the Shashavani, it is common for both men and women to wear the chokha (though unless they are soldiers, female Shashavani tend to wear skirts rather than trousers beneath them). Some Shashavani women also wear the traditional dresses of their Svan and Georgian neighbors. Both styles are worn by Ekaterine as befits her mood (usually a dress for formal purposes and a skirt and chokha for everday wear).

Abroad:
Outside the lands of the Shashavani, Ekaterine wears the clothes of a local woman, sometimes humble and sometimes well to do depending on her disguise. She briefly attempted to disguise herself as Varanus’s servant when they traveled to Western Europe in 1887, but their evident camaraderie made this an impossible pretense to maintain and shortly thereafter she assumed the identity of Varanus’s sister-in-law. In this capacity she wore the clothes of a wealthy woman. She has a particular fondness for bustle dresses, especially those that are heavily adorned with frills and fussy details (which, like the bustle, she find tremendously amusing). Almost paradoxically, she despises European hats, especially those that are large or heavily adorned.

 *(NOTE: As with all cosplay, do not feel restricted from cosplaying a character that is of a different height and/or build from you. If you do decide to cosplay Ekaterine , have fun and please be sure to send me pictures.)

New last moment Perk for the Indygogo campaign I should have posted about this more but I have been crazy with projects.

Heir Apparent : $10

A signed and numbered print of the Varanus coat of arms; a signed a numbered print of the von Fuchsburg coat of arms; and an ebook copy of The Ouroboros Cycle, Book One: A Monster’s Coming Of Age Story.

I should have let people know about this more but I have been traveling so much the past month. The campaign only has about 48 hours to go. If it hits its goal I will be able to have a great book trailer put together that will do the book series justice.

The Ouroboros Cycle, Book 1: A Monster’s Coming of Age Story is my latest book out. Here is some of the wonderful art in its pages shown in the collages above. It can be picked up in print and ebook at Wildside ,Amazon , Barnes & Nobel and Kobo as well as where ever else books are sold.
