Welcome to the official blog of the Bloodsong Series! I am Sandy Nathan, award-wining author of Stepping Off the Edge and Numenon, as well as mother of the Bloodsong Series.

Numenon is the first book of the Bloodsong Series. This series emerged from one of the most challenging periods of my life. After two years that demanded that I use all of my spiritual, emotional, and intellectual skills to survive, I went on a meditation retreat in 1995. I worked and prayed and studied, doing everything I could to imbibe the essence of the retreat. It worked. I left feeling renewed and ready to begin again.

A few days after getting Home, I had a miraculous experience in which the plot of something was injected in my brain. Zap! It was like a light bolt hit me on the right temple and continued through my skull. Nothing like that had happened to be before; I didn’t know such a thing could happen.

I dashed to my computer and began to write down what that Zap! contained. Two hundred and seventy-five pages later, I realized I had a book. As I continued, I realized it was a series,. Writing more, I found it was two series. I wrote for nine years, completing drafts for nine book. This is the first book of the Bloodsong Series. I hope you like it––the series unfolds like a roller coaster. Numenon is the initial climb and plunge.

Stay tuned for updates and news of Numenon and its sequels. Mogollon: Can You See the Warriors?, sequel to Numenon, is written and being readied for publication.

Stay tuned and drop by often. You are welcome here.

  3. Hi, Carol. I’m glad you’re enjoying Numenon. I’m working on MOGOLLON––Numenon’s sequel. The first draft is finished and I’m in the rewrite process. Then it goes through rounds of editing and proofreading. I’m anticipating MOGOLLON will be out some time in 2011. Thanks for your interest and support!

  5. I just finished Numenon and anticipate going through withdrawl while waiting for the rest of the series. It was the best book I’ve read in ages. The book has me thinking about the world in a different way.

  6. Hi, Cheryl and Barbara–– So glad to hear you enjoyed NUMENON. I’m chugging away on MOGOLLON, the sequel. Will get it to you ASAP. Meanwhile,I’ve got two new books coming out. The first, TECOLOTE: THE LITTLE HORSE THAT COULD, is children’s book about a premature baby horse born on our ranch. In addition to being a preemie, he loses his mom when he’s still a baby. And he goes on to be a GREAT HORSE! Illustrated with photos taken while the action was happening. Also coming is THE ANGEL & THE BROWN-EYED BOY, a fantasy/sci fi set in an unkind future on the verge of nuclear Armageddon. Both are coming out very soon. I’ll announce on my web site and blogs. THE ANGEL has it’s own blog, http://talesfromearthsend.com. Think you’ll enjoy them, too.

  8. Hello Sandy,
    Loved Numenon. Beautiful writing and thought provoking.
    Do you have a date yet for the release of Mogollon? In the meantime, I am working through Stepping Off the Edge,
    another of your well-written, thought-provoking books.
    I am looking forward to the rest of the Bloodsong Series!
    Thanks for a great read!

  9. Hi, Syandra! Great to hear from you. I’m so glad that you enjoyed Numenon and trust that Stepping Off the Edge will satisfy, as well. (The end to Stepping packs a punch.) The people that I write for are people who want depth and emotional complexity, as well as thrills. I’m glad our paths crossed. I’m chuggin’ away on Mogollon as fast as I can. As I note in Numenon, it is written and has been for some time. The problem is that it’s 1,300 pages or more––an unwieldy phone book. I started the rewriting and then was bowled over by a visionary fiction series, Tales from Earth’s End. The material was pouring into me so fast. I knew I had to write it down or it would be lost.

    If you’re looking for more of my stuff to reach, the first book of the series in print and various other formats. I’ll hook you to my web page, which has links to all my books. The Angel & the Brown-eyed Boy is the top left.

    The Angel is a the story of a 16 year old tech genius and an angelic extraterrestrial given the task of saving their planets. It’s set on the eve of a nuclear Armageddon. Sort of 1984 meets The Great Gatsby in a very unfriendly future USA. This story has tons of emotional “working out” of problems. And ballet, and jazz. The book has already won twp major awards in Visionary Fiction: the 2011 Gold Medal in the IPPY (Independent Press) Awards, and the Visionary Fiction category in the 2011 National Indie Excellence Awards.

    I’ve got two sequels to The Angel being edited now. We’re thinking of putting them out at the same time, probably late 2011. Mogollon (Numenon’s sequel) is slated for a full edit then. It should come out in early to mid 2012.

    Thanks so much for writing. I really appreciate your support!

    Sandy Nathan
