It's Summer. Let's Read with Debut Writer Sarah-Jane Lehoux

Having been a DEBUT writer just last year, I have a soft spot in my heart for anyone going through this process. When SARAH-JANE LEHOUX popped the questions about appearing on The Write Game I immediately said, "Absolutely. I'd love it." So let me introduce Sarah-Jane My first, It's Summer. Let's Read guest, and her debut novel THIEF. (Be sure to check out her CONTEST below.)


Sarah-Jane Lehoux has always had a passion for storytelling. From grade school tales of cannibalistic ghosts, to teenaged conversations with God, to her latest fantasy adventures, she's attempted to share her love of the quirky and unconventional with her readers.

For the past several years, she has been employed as a veterinary technician in a busy animal hospital in the GTA. In between wrestling with rottweilers and fending off fractious cats, she has continued to craft stories that will entertain and provoke.

Her short stories have appeared online in a number of publications, and she is thrilled to announce the debut of THIEF, the first novel in an excitingly dark and dangerous new fantasy series.

In addition to her own writing projects, she also works as an editor for Awe-Struck Publishing, and as a slush reader for Mundania Press.

Sarah-Jane resides in Southern Ontario with her husband, and her ever growing horde of Machiavellian cats.


In the crumbling city of Eloria, there is one indisputable fact: everyone has a price. Protestations of morality and better judgment have little meaning when confronted with the chance to obtain the unobtainable. The only question remaining is just how much a person is willing to sacrifice in order to win their heart’s desire.

Sevy has always been a quick study in the wicked ways of Eloria. She has no qualms about taking what she wants, and when the love of her life is mysteriously murdered, Sevy will stop at nothing to get him back. Elvish black magic, necromancy, and demonic pacts are of little consequence if it means she can once again have her beloved at her side. But is she willing to murder her only friend to get the job done?

Thief is available in paperback and ebook format from Mundania Press.  In the next few weeks, it will also be available at online retailers such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Fictionwise. You can also order it through any local bookstore. Visit Sarah-Jane's website for complete ordering information.

AND . . . . DRUM ROLL HERE . . .  YOU CAN WIN ONE SIGNED COPY OF THIEF by leaving a "pithy" word or two, an insightful question or a helpful hint for those debut writers out there. (Contest open only to residents of Canada/US.) Sarah-Jane will choose a random winner and send the prize to that lucky reader.
