Just passed When the Wolf Breathes over to my proofreaders. I’ll do a final read through after that, so not much longer to go. Thanks to all my readers for being so patient.
At last! When the Wolf Bites: Parts I and II now combined into one book. Amazon has worked hard with me on this, but we know that combining these two books will be a better read.
Before Part I and II was unpublished, Amazon sent free of charge the updated versions (which were minor edits) to all my readers. You can update these through your “Manage Your Content and Devices” page.
And now onto When the Wolf Breathes! I’ll be adding an excerpt from this book in the next few days.

On September 26 2016, Amazon sent an email to all those readers who downloaded When the Wolf Dreams in those first few days after its release on 10 September, to let you know that I had made some further changes to the book. This email was sent at my request and to those who received it, you can download at no further cost to you, the updated version of When the Wolf Dreams through your “Manage Your Content and Devices” page.
These past few months working with Amazon has taught me a lot about being an indie publisher, one of which is never again work eighteen hours straight then publish at 2.00 am, instead of taking a break and reading the story through once more.
I just want to thank my readers for any inconvenience this may have caused, and Amazon, for all their hard work.

I am currently working with Amazon to merge When the Wolf Bites: Part I and II into one book. Although it will be over 700 pages long, we think it will be a better read but as you can appreciate the work involved in this, the new book won’t be ready until December.
However, in preparation for this, I have been going through both books and making a few edits, although the story remains the same.
I have just completed Part I and Amazon will soon be sending a free copy to everyone who purchased the book over the past eighteen months.
I am currently working my way through Part II and everyone who purchased this book over the past year will also get a free copy of the new updated version, which should be out in the next few weeks. Once again, although there are edits, the story remains the same.
I am really excited to have When the Wolf Bites in one book, instead of split into two. Meanwhile I just want to thank Amazon for working so hard with me on this. x
When the Wolf Dreams now out on http://www.Amazon.com/author/sadieconall.
It is July 1804 and Madeleine lingers in St Louis waiting on news of Ryder. When she receives a letter from London, shattering all her hopes, she makes the decision to move on with her life and return to the wild in the hope of reaching the Bannock in the far Northwest Pacific of the New World by winter 1805.
Thank you to all my readers for their patience as I went way past my deadlines twice writing this book. But every time I thought it done, Ryder and Madeleine would pull me back in, insisting I tell more of their story. Let me know if you like it by leaving a message here on my blog, on my Facebook page, Bookbubs, or a review at Amazon or Goodreads. I love to hear from you.
When the the Wolf Breathes, the fifth and last book in this series will be out in 2017. x
I made a decision today regarding the fourth book in the series of Madeleine. I have been trying desperately to fit the story into this last book, When the Wolf Dreams, by editing and cutting scenes and editing some more but have come to the rather slow conclusion that at 600 pages and counting, this book needs to be made into two. I was hoping to get it out by May, but that deadline came and went and apologies for that but I’m now pushing to get When the Wolf Dreams out by end July, with the final and fifth book in the series (no name as yet) out by Christmas, hopefully. Sorry to all my readers, I’ve been trying really hard to get this story finished for you but so much needs to be said and so much needs to happen that it can’t possibly fit into one book. Hope you’re not too disappointed. Love Sadie x
Some of my readers have asked if Sadie Conall is a pen name and I thought I’d take some time away from writing to answer that. The short answer is yes, it is a pen name. The long answer is that Sadie is a nickname a well loved family member calls me. The name Conall came about through my love of everything Celtic, for my great grandparents were Irish and my mother was born in Shropshire near the border of Wales. I wanted a Celtic name to use as a surname (despite already having an Irish surname and a first name that has Welsh origins), and after some research settled on Conall (pronounced in the lovely Irish lilt of Con-L or Con-ELLE, not ConALL). It means strong wolf, or mighty warrior. I thought it fitting when writing about a strong independent young French girl who lived in the wilderness of the New World in the late 1700’s with the Bannock and a pure white wolf!

And as I looked out into that darkening gloom, several flashes of lightning streaked across the sky, illuminating everything around me. I closed my eyes instinctively, against that white hot light but not before I saw his shadow less than half a mile away from where I watched. A rider, with a pack horse trailing behind him, riding slowly along the river bank, stopping often to lean over and look at the wet earth. I knew what he was doing. He was following our tracks.

“God, I remember when you used to wear it like this,” he said softly, almost wistfully. “When you wore buckskins, with a sheath of arrows on your back and when you carried knives. And a day never goes by when I don’t love you more than the day before. But there it is. That’s how I feel. It’s quite extraordinary how much I love you. I never knew such feelings were possible. You sit opposite me at a dining table, within the glow of candlelight and I see no other woman in the room but you. Or when I watch you sleeping , deep in the night, how do I bare it, such love.”
