“Promise to Keep” short story
Soon I’ll be releasing another short story within an anthology with a group of talented writers. The anthology itself will be a collection of magical stories, and I’m very excited to share this with you. The release is right around the corner; though, I don’t have a definitive date yet.
I will post an update once the ebook is live!
My contribution is a story called Promise to Keep about a modern-day mage, Katrina, and a werewolf police captain Alastair! (I’ve always liked that name.) The story has action, urban fantasy, and two-knuckleheads in love — oh, well, they have feelings for each other, but one of them has a problem keeping them from making that first move…
Here’s a short preview except of the story…
Lightly and carefully, she pulled Alastair out and leaned him against her for support. She looked around, glad that there weren’t any onlookers. It was late enough in the night, yet there was still potential for people to stop by and see them. ‘Try to stand upright and not look so wounded. We don’t want people to get suspicious.’
He made a ragged noise of affirmation and straightened up as best as he could. He steadied his breathing, trying to hold back the pain.
When they got inside the building, one of his night volunteers, Raye, rushed over to them.
‘Oh my God, what happened?’ she exclaimed, immediately helping Katrina prop him up. They steered Alastair into the office with the sofa and laid him down.
He sighed in relief when his back met the soft cushions, but when Katrina started inspecting his wound, he flinched. Pangs of agony throbbed through him.
‘He was attacked. Go get the medical kit and my healing herbs in my desk,’ she said, and Raye turned dutifully.
Stay tuned for updates on the release of this anthology.
In the meantime, I plan on finishing War Fury soon. The recent death of one of my dogs, as well as my full time job’s demands have made it a challenge to keep up. Mod Fury will get its sequel soon.
FREE BOOK: Unbridled (accidentally)
Well, by accident I tried to set up a free promotion for the Spirits Abound anthology for today, and ended up setting up the wrong book. Because obviously I don’t pay attention to things…
Spirits Abound will go up for FREE on Kindle tomorrow, but today, I guess I’m also running another FREE promotion on Unbridled! So the kindle version is free until Sunday. Get a copy if you haven’t yet!
I’ll be back tomorrow to promote Spirits Abound!
PRICE DROP! Mod Fury is now $0.99

Eric commands it!
One of the hardest things as an independent writer is updating my blog with writing “things”. I’m definitely writing, yet some periods are slower than other, but this summer is one of the busiest writing times for me. I have multiple projects going on at once.
Come Halloween, I’m going to have two short stories in anthologies with other indie authors. One of the anthologies I’m organizing with other writers I’ve known for a long time, so it’s exciting. Though organizing it and keeping a schedule is the hard part! But it’s going well. Then, there’s another anthology I joined and I’m working on a story for that.
Plus, I’m still tapping away at War Fury, and the editing for Killer Orange has been a bit quiet. Most of the editing is in my head for ideas on how to improve it.
I’m also working on a couple side short stories – romance/erotica just to get more works in my library.
So here’s the list of my current projects:
- Three Times Dead – my short story for the Ghosts anthology slated for Halloween
- Little Girl Lost – another short story for a Halloween anthology
- War Fury – the next book to Mod Fury
- Blazing Heat – short story romance one-shot
- outlining of Circle of Whispers, my series about Reapers
- various editing of Killer Orange, fan works, and a couple of older short stories that might turn into something.
So yeah, I’m busy! I hope to be able to share something, as well as publish, soon!
Other things to look forward to:
- a giveaway for paperback of Unbridled
- free promotion for Mod Fury
Until next time. Cheers!
The Free book promotion for Unbridled is over and I’m happy to say the book had a total of 223 downloads!
I appreciate everyone who took the chance to download my book. I hope you enjoy it!
I’m currently still working on a few projects, like War Fury and Killer Orange, and starting a couple new short stories. I will update everyone soon with the next published novel!
