Pendragon is DONE!

pendragon is done

The beast is done! Alright, so once I got into it the story itself was a lot of fun to write and hardly a beast, but its definitely been one hell of a journey to get to this point.

It’s been over a year since I’ve even talked about this story in any depth in my blog.

Though, I did share a bit of a sneak peek with you guys the other Wednesday.

So, what’s next for this little 5k Arthurian tale? Well its currently in the queue awaiting deliberation as to whether it gets accepted or rejected into an anthology. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I did it justice.

If not, well I’ll tweak it a little and drag it up to 6k and it be edited again before I self publish it and it becomes the third and final installment of my teensy Camelot Saga.

And if you haven’t read Morrighan and Le Fay? Now’s your chance to catch up.

You can pick them both up in the digital only duology, Raven Conspiracy Available Here!

That’s over 12,000 words for only $2.99!

Away With the Faeries

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve probably noticed one thing… well two things actually.

I write Paranormal Romance… and, I love faeries.

So, I combined both of those and now write A LOT of speculative fiction with faerie centric characters or themes.

My personal viewpoint on fey origin stories is that they’re gods or demi gods. I wouldn’t call them daemons as such only because from a Pagan standpoint the gods tend to take on various aspects. Therefore there’s both light and dark/benevolent and malevolent/winter and summer fey, and I don’t think that’s as clear cut either.

And right now, I have three 10,000+ word stories available in Limited Edition anthologies… which won’t be around forever.

My story, STOLEN features within.

 Never make a deal with a faerie. You might find yourself bargaining your newborn daughter’s life as payment.

My father told me the story long before I could talk. I knew it by heart. Together, he and my brother had hunted and killed every last faerie they could find. All to save me from my fate.

For five hundred years the women in my family were taken as payment for a debt owed to the faerie lord. And paid with their lives. Humans weren’t designed to live in Faerie. We were too fragile.

But I’m not like those who have come before me. I’m strong, not weak. I will survive and one day, I will be free.

Twenty-one-year-old, Evie is one of the last Quinn female wolf shifters.

Born to mixed lineage and not quite fey nor quite wolf, Evie has grown up thinking herself more wolf than fey, while following pack orders. But all that’s about to change.

Summoned to Arcadia by the Queen of the Summer Court, Evie finds herself nothing more than a pawn to strengthen her cousin’s hold on the throne.

But both women are keeping secrets, however, only Evie’s catch up to her during the Solstice Ball which forces her to flee with two unlikely companions, Fianna and Cole.

Now back home, Evie attempts to capture her own happily ever after… but will she?

5 Questions to Ask Before Starting Your Novel

Have you ever found yourself stumbling over where to start on a new novel? I have.

So, below I’ve come up with five questions to ask yourself before you get started writing.

They are:

1. Who is the main character or the heart of the story?

2. Who is the antagonist?

3. What threatens your main character?

4. What is the catalyst that sets the story in motion?

5. Where does the story end?

If you’ve answered all five of these you should have at least some idea as to the direction your story is headed.

I hope you found this blog post helpful in some way. If you did, drop me a like or a comment below.

Week Four | 2020

It’s the final week of January and I’ve accomplished the following:

  • Written 1003 words across three of my bigger projects.
  • Finished two drabbles

Bring on February, where I hope to up my word count.

Here’s to another week!

Happy writing!

Week Three | 2020

It’s the third week in January and I’m slowly getting into the swing of things.

So, what have I accomplished in the past seven days?

Let’s list it shall we and find out!

  • Written 1029 words across three projects.
  • Finished two short stories.
  • Edited one story.

I’m hoping to push the words in February when the kids go back to school. So, for now I’m happy averaging 1000 a week.

Here’s to another week!

Happy writing!

Week Two | 2020

It’s a new year and a new challenge.

  • Received an ACCEPTANCE for a previously published story into Stories of Hope anthology.
  • Written 1100 words across two projects.
  • Written and submitted a poem.
  • Edited 3 short stories.

I realized after I posted last week that I was a long way off my target of 3,500 words but as a friend reminded me tonight… it’s better than no words at all. And you know what? It really is!

Here’s to another week!

Happy writing!

It feels like a slow start to January but given the amount of words written it’s definitely not.

Until then… Happy writing!

Raven Conspiracy is LIVE!

52310c72-0a8e-41cb-a865-cb41f52d4062.jpeg

Raven Conspiracy is now available!

Bringing together the stories Morrighan and Le Fay, it’s the perfect way to read both before Pendragon comes out and finishes the series.

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. 
When she escapes she wants nothing more than to avenge her father’s murder.
Now an adult and gifted with a very powerful ally in the form of the Morrighan, Morgan is able to enact her revenge. But it comes at a steep price: the knowledge of Arthur’s premature death.
Can Morgan prevent the Goddess’s prediction from coming true or is Camelot destined to fall?
