Hello all who have so kindly preordered and liked and spread the word about All Daughters Rise. Unfortunately, the fundraising ends today, which means we didn’t quite reach our goal. But that doesn’t mean All Daughters Rise is dead in the water! 

I am in the process of having ADR beta’d by a dear friend and editor, and I’m working hard to make it as good as I can possibly get it. After today, you will all be refunded your preorder amount. This isn’t over, and I hope to keep you all posted on the future of this project as well as any others!

Blessings,

Ally

Hi my darlings! I changed the book cover to reflect what I love most about this book - spooky, magickal, aggressively bisexual color palettes. If you haven’t shared this link, please do so! I’m thrilled about where we’re going with this.

Guys! We’re at 307 preorders. I’m so thrilled. Please, spread the word about this book. I have until January to get 750 preorders. Did I mention this book will have a sequel? ;)

I will be featured on Brian Moritz’s podcast "The Other 51" this week, so stay tuned for a link on that!

WOW! Guys, we’re already at 55 orders! I’m so excited, this is crazy-pants!

Stay tuned - by the end of the week, I will be uploading the first chapter of the book. Also, let’s try to get to 100 by this time next Monday, and I’ll upload some playlists and old drafts! 

For now, I would like you to meet a few of the characters that populate All Daughters Rise. There are more where this came from, but I need to keep some surprises! 

****

Sorina Hasdeu: 24, Greenwitch. Specifically skilled in herb, flower, plant magick. Not really good at human emotions or vulnerability. Has occasional bouts of crippling anxiety and depression. Is enormously conflicted by the revelation that her mother lived another life as a hero/mass murderer. Was born possessing a tremendous capability for empathic magick but has let it go by the wayside because it scared her to feel what others felt. Makes gross jokes under pressure. Is a fan of leggings and big chunky cardigans and pastry bread.

Lyneth Walker: Looks to be in her mid-twenties, is actually over one thousand years old. Vampire. Highly regarded member of the Daughters. Expert in swordplay, blood magick, hand-to-hand combat.  If Selene from Underworld had a sense of humor, hidden inner warmth, and a less constrictive wardrobe. The personification of the meme "could kill you but is also secretly a cinnamon roll."

Breasha Kane: 24, Stonewitch. Skilled in crystals and other forms of earth. Dark-skinned Black woman who wears her hair in locs (I modeled Bree after Franchesca Ramsey, aka Chescaleigh). Brilliant, secretive, serious but with a blazing sense of humor. From an extremely wealthy family. 

Li Wooding: 26, Animal Whisperer. Non-binary (AMAB). Trained in animal magick, can be understood by animals. Learned at a young age how to change their hair color and cut at will. Sarcastic, witty, grounded. Bree’s partner. From the poorer section of Bree’s home region, but chosen to match with Bree due to their skill in combat.

Ioana Hasdeu: Looks to be in her late forties, early fifties, is actually much older. Sorina’s mother.  Sacred Singer - priestess witch to the altar of the Mothers. Once the legendary Daughter Prime - the leader of a group of assassins created by the Kingdom of Theara to exterminate the human race and bring ultimate rule back to their land. Left the Daughters for reasons that remain unknown to all but Lyneth and her Coven.

The Mothers: The matriarchal deities that govern the Kingdom of Theara. 

Arrowheart: Sorina’s horse. Grumpy, sleepy, only answers to Sorina. Toxic farts.
