I’ve completed the first draft of Jelayan, fourth in the Wolves of Sorrow series of short novels. Yay, go me! While I’m working on another project instead of the one I should be working on, I’ll let Jelayan simmer for a few weeks before returning for a second pass. There’s always holes in a rough draft that the subsequent editing passes catch, and I hope to clean this one up with a minimal amount of fuss. *lolsob*
In August, I’ll be participating in a massive giveaway via Ellen Mint‘s Grab Bag Giveaway contest. Fifty-three authors, one hundred fourteen books combined into thirty-eight bundles divided into romance sub-genres. I’ve thrown in two of mine and can’t wait for the contest to start. Head over to Ellen’s page, give her a follow, and take a chance on winning some free books!
Draxton’s Destiny, the sequel of Subject 5691: Petri, is now available on Amazon in ebook, paperback, and in Kindle Unlimited. This book was a labor of love, and sometimes there was a lot more on the side of labor than love, but I feel it was worth it. So please, go! Buy if you can, read on KU if you think it may suit you, or considering sharing on your socials.
The photo which inspired this flash piece is one I took at Lake Wenatchee in Washington State. The piece of driftwood, snarled and smoothed by time and water, looked (to me) like a dryad emerging from a protective shell of roots. The story took off from there. Enjoy!
In August, fellow author Ellen Mint is coordinating an amazing giveaway of over a hundred books divided into Contemporary, Paranormal, and Historical subgenre grab bags. Each bag will contain several books in the subgenre.
I’ve placed two of mine in the giveaway, both first in their series. Subject 5691: Petri, first book of the Edgeworld Chronicles, and Shoba, first book in the Wolves of Sorrow series. Keep an eye on this space or head over to Ellen’s blog to follow her. We’ll have more information as the giveaway approaches.
In going through an old notebook, I found this piece I wrote several years ago. I dusted it off, made some changes, and offer it up as a bit of flash fiction for your enjoyment. It’s a shorter piece, just under 800 words, but one I’d held onto to see if it became anything more.
