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.
Thanks for the support.
I’m going to try to make this blog a little more active, even during this really hectic writing and editing period for me. So on weekends I intend to share something to help out another fellow independent artist or writer. Hopefully, you can check them out, give them kudos or drop a line, or check out whatever event their having and participate. Show some love! We’re all trying to make something of ourselves and do what we love.
The first recommendation is for a fellow writer Rebecca Crunden who is doing a Free Book Giveaway for her stand-alone book about angels and demons called A Game of Wings and Marks. I’m sure lovers of City of Bones would love this!
Please enter the Free Book Giveaway here. If you don’t have a Livejournal account you can use OpenID.
Comic artist Heather R. Holden is currently open for commissions. She does an online comic called Echo Effect and is working on her next comic The Undeath of Me. She is looking for Patreon patrons and freelance commissions. Please check out her Commissions Blog Post here.
Creatives thrive off making some extra money and starting a legitimate profession from their talents and endeavors. I hope you can help these talented ladies!
As some of you have guessed, my novel Killer Orange is currently on hiatus while I continue to go through edits (when there is time and motivation). I’d rather spend more time on it than give people a piece of crap story, of course!
In the meantime, I am beginning a short story series about the Greek Furies that I mentioned once before. I have been working on this, as well as the outlines for the other stories in the series.
I plan on releasing Mod Fury (The Avenging Sisters Series #0.5) either end of April or mid-May, which is soon. It depends on my health and available time. I just found a perfect cover image today and will be working on the design to post a teaser soon. Thanks to my editor, not many revisions are needed, so I’ll go through it again a few times and prep it for Amazon.
Unlike Unbridled, Mod Fury will not be a romance. There may be some, but it will be in the background. It is purely paranormal adventure and modern myth with kick-ass females.
Mod Fury will have a low e-book price and be KDP only in the beginning. I haven’t had much luck with other e-book sellers, so I’m sticking to Amazon for now. When the second book of the series comes out (hopefully by next early Winter), tentatively entitled War Fury, then Mod Fury will permanently be free. That’s the plan!
In the coming days I’ll post more about Mod Fury as updates arise.
