Teaser Tuesday -Wolves of Sorrow: Brienne

Note: If you think you saw this earlier, it’s because instead of editing a copy of the post for a future scheduled post, I edited the original. Because I failed at blogging today. lol

Anyway, I’m bringing back the old Teaser Tuesday series to spotlight on the things in progress, things already released, and maybe just things. Who knows? Brienne has survived the final editing pass without me loathing it, so I call it a win! It’s still a short novel, at just under 54K words, but slightly longer than Shoba which was in the murky “too long to be a novella but almost too short to be a novel” zone.

End of Year Recap, 2021

2021. The year that looked at 2020 and said, “Hold my beer.” With a failed insurrection under our belts, a pandemic still rolling across the country, vaccine reluctance giving the virus fertile soil to mutate into nasty variants, and an unexpected job loss that had us hunkering down and counting pennies until we had income coming in again, to say it’s been stressful has been an understatement.

(Micro)Flash Fiction Friday – The Market

Hello! It’s Friday and time for another short snippet of fiction. This week, we’re back in the marketplace, but set in the same world as Wolves of Sorrow: Shoba. It seems their disappearance has been noted by the other residents of Earth Prime.

If anyone else wants to play along, feel free to paste yours in the comments below, link to your own site, or on my Facebook page.

Trope Tuesdays

Let’s take another look at the various tropes found in romance and/or urban fantasy. Some are beloved standards in the industry. Others are, for me, a hard line drawn in the sand. All generate different reactions from different readers (and sometimes from the same reader at different times in their lives). I’ll give one I love, and provide links in case they appeal to anyone else, and one I’d rather leave behind.

Standard disclaimer! I’m not saying these tropes are bad (okay, one or two kinda are), these are just my personal preferences. If you like something I dislike, and a lot of folks do, that’s okay! If you dislike something I love, again a lot of folks do, that’s also okay! If we all read/liked the same books, libraries would be small and boring.

So, with that out of the way, let’s dive right in.
