Le Fay is LIVE

I just hit publish on the kindle version of my short story Le Fay! It’s the prequel to Morrighan, which I first published almost a year ago as an eBook and later in paperback. I intend to have Le Fay available in paperback very soon.

The first story, Morrighan, deals with a retelling of the Arthurian Legends from Morgan le Faye’s point of view with a paranormal twist. If you haven’t read it you can purchase Morrighan for .99c here. Le Fay, is the story of a young Morgan. In the legends she’s sent to a nunnery, but in my version she is tricked and trapped by Arthur in a crystal cave for ten years and its here that she learns magick from Merlin.

 

le fay finalLe Fay is available for purchase for $1.99.

Synopsis: Ten-year-old, Morgan is horribly lonely with just her cat, Merlin for company. With no one else to play with, Morgan seeks the company of an imaginary friend, Arthur.
But, Arthur, isn’t who he seems and things turn sinister, when he reveals himself to be none other than Arthur Pendragon, Prince of Camelot, before locking Morgan up in the bowels of the earth in a long forgotten crystal cave.
Can she escape or will she be trapped within the crystal cave forever?

While I feel both Morrighan and Le Fay can be read as stand-alones, each story does end on a bit of a cliff-hanger.

Le Fay to be Released August 9th

Le Fay

Yes! I have a release date! Le Fay is to be released on August 9th!

I have agonized over this for a while, and finally settled on a release date… one that I think is fair and gives me time to polish Le Fay into something great. Unlike with Morrighan, I didn’t have two test runs of this story to fall back on. All three incarnations of Morrighan have received positive feedback and reviews and I don’t want to disappoint anyone with releasing a subpar story in my haste and excitement to see another story of mine out in the world.

June and July are also difficult months for my family, as both mine and my husband’s mum’s are no longer with us. I have to say though he handles the loss of his mum far better than I handle the loss of mine.

So, I’ve pushed it back to give myself time to fall into a heap on July 24th and come out the other side. August 9th also marks what would have been my mum’s 70th birthday. It seems like a fitting tribute.

Watch this space… because I’m absolutely loving the roads these short stories are taking.

It will be available in eBook and paperback formats across all platforms.

In the meantime… if you want to read a snippet or two… check here and here.

It’s Done!

It’s done! Omg! I finished writing Le Fay early this morning. At ten past one this morning to be precise. And, wow! I think you’re all going to love it, I really do!

This journey has been incredible. I wasn’t sure for a while there if I could even write a prequel to Morrighan because the words just weren’t flowing and I didn’t want to force them, but then a spark of inspiration came and I got it done.

So, it’s done and I still need to edit it and properly format it and make sure the cover is right for the paperback… basically make it shine… so that I can release it into the world. Which means no release date yet, but soon, I swear. I just had to update you all on my progress and let you know that I hadn’t forgotten.

At just over 6,200 words it will be priced similarly to Morrighan… be sure to keep your eyes on my blog for future updates!

I can’t wait!

Le Fay Has Been Delayed

Oh, how I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I really hate to disappoint people. Although, I think in this industry it might be par for the course. Writing can be finicky and the muse even more so.

Alas… now to rip the band-aid off.

Sadly, Le Fay won’t be ready in time for a April 15th release. I think eight weeks out from publishing Lost is much more reasonable than six with the way I’m tracking writing wise. So, it’s likely going to be an end of April release.

And, I’m almost there. I just forgot to factor in how busy I’d be in the last few weeks of the first school term. And now that my kids are off for two weeks it’s virtually impossible to actually score time on our sole PC during the day in order to write.

Roblox takes priority apparently. It gets old fast, believe me.

So, in an effort to appease those of you who may have been looking forward to news of a pending release, I’m going to share another excerpt.

And if you’re interested in the previous excerpts I’ve shared they are here and here.
Morgan stood at the base of the tree, having scaled the wire fence with only a little help from Arthur. There didn’t seem to be a doorway of any kind that would take them to the crystal cave.

“How do we get inside?”

“Magick,” Prince Arthur replied. “How else?”

Knocking on the trunk of the tree three times, they stood in silence, and waited, as right before Morgan’s eyes the trunk of the tree split open at its base and tore upwards forming a narrow doorway, just wide enough for the two of them to slip through.

With wide eyes, Morgan looked up at Arthur, trembling slightly. “Is it safe?”

“Do you really think that I’d lead you into danger, Morgan?”

“No,” she said, but neither her words nor her actions had any conviction.

“Come on,” Arthur said, holding out his hand for her. “I promised your brother that no harm would come to you and none shall.”
