I just wanted to pop in here, and take a breath. I’m alive, I’m here. But I’ve been working really hard on my project (*a secret addition to a story world in one of my other novels. I guess not so secret anymore! :)) for National Novel Writing Month. So sparing the brain power to think up a post is a bit low on the priorities list this month. But since today is a time for thankfulness, I just wanted to say thank you for sticking with me, especially for reading my books (and for reviewing them!) and I hope all of you, my friends, have a nice, restful, holiday weekend.
Be on the look out as I’m having a sale soon. I’ll keep you posted. Until then, Happy Turkey Day!
Not saying we have it as bad as those of you getting snowed on but WOW did the temps drop this weekend! (And we’re already–slightly–warming back up).
And I finally got Draft2Digital figured out. Their support was wonderful. 🙂 So if you’re an indie author and looking for a way to go “wide” I’d say give them a try.
Also, I’ve got a new freebie short story up, for Christmas entitled No Such Thing as Dasher. It’s a holiday themed short story. The synopsis is as follows:
For Avery, her holiday duties as a forest ranger oftentimes involve tracking revelers who have lost their way in her wilderness domain. After a camper clashes with a reindeer, however, Avery is shocked to discover the creature is defended not by Santa, but by the formidable, yet gentle, shapeshifting Lord of the Forest.
Can the magic of the forest bring together a ranger and a supernatural being, or is Avery destined to celebrate yet another Christmas alone?
An enchanting fairy tale to celebrate the magic of the season!
Please note, there are some Amazon stores at which the story might not yet be free but I’m hoping they will come in line with the others before New Year’s. If it’s not free where you are, please check back.
I hope you enjoy this little freebie short story, and have a lovely Christmas!
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends. I hope you all have (or had) a lovely one. While we’re all eating and out shopping for Black Friday, I thought I would share with you an essay I wrote last year (slightly updated!) about unusual paranormal characters in Romance.
But before I do, I wanted to let you know that the ebook of Keeper of the Grove is on sale for $.99, today and tomorrow–for Black Friday. You can find it at Amazon .
Modern paranormal romance caters to women who want to dream a little more than the average reader. They crave the weird and just looking at the romance pages in Amazon or at the shelves in a bookstore, you’ll see publishers are catering to that wish list.
These days the main star of the genre, though, seems to have gelled down to two factions: Vampires and werewolves. As a reader of the genre, and as a lover of mythology, I’ve often wondered why that is. After all, the world’s mythologies offer so many different types of monsters (yes, I said the M word ;)) to choose from.
Did you have a magical Valentine’s day? We did. It’s downtime and the short slide down to spring (and spring break) right? 🙂
I’ve been writing away and almost finished with (what I hope will be) my next release. So stay tuned for that. More magic is on the way. In the meantime, Changeling’s Crownis on sale for $.99 extended through the 19th. If you haven’t gotten it before I hope you’ll check it out.
When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.
