Coffins & Dragons is Available Now!

Darkness. Despair. Death.

The repertoire of vampires and dragons precede them.

Enter worlds blanketed in terror and turmoil with characters struggling for survival. Dragon shifters are hunted, truces are broken, families are slaughtered, and ritualistic sacrifices are common. In the darkness, seeds of romance manage to blossom along with hope for better lives.

My story Of Blood and Fire features within and is an Arthuriana inspired tale that asks the question: What if vampires were the only ones that could stop the dragons from destroying Camelot?

Divinity is LIVE!

blog2

Divinity, the Gods and Goddesses anthology is the second release for Iron Faerie Publishing and features twenty one stories by nineteen different authors.

My 500 word story, A Storm of Ravens, is included within and it features the Morrighan and Dagda and their relationship at Samhain. While short, I couldn’t help but delve back into my love of flash fiction for this one. I really hope it delivers because I had a blast writing it.

Stories of Gods and Goddesses have enthralled us all for millennia.
While some are benevolent, others are not – but all are divine.

Divinity is Almost Here

Divinity is almost here! Plus I have a few other stories winging their way out into the world over the next nine days!

It’s all very exciting.

I’m still not exactly sure where October went but it has positively flown by. I had hoped to do more blogging and promoting but between my second born son turning 11 and my daughter turning 12, school holidays and general life stuff that always seems to creep in, time just hasn’t been on my side.

So, what’s releasing and when?

Let’s see…

Divinity from Iron Faerie Publishing comes out on the 25th October. It’s available to Preorder now! It’s an anthology packed full of stories about different deities from all different pantheons.

Coffins & Dragons from Dragon Soul Press comes out on the 30th October. It’s available to Preorder right now! This anthology is sure to delight everyone! With stories of vampires and dragons, what’s not to like?

Forest of Fear from Blood Song Books comes out on the 31st October. It’s also available to Preorder! A microfiction anthology full of Halloween inspired drabbles, set in the forest.

Please, if you haven’t picked up a copy do so now! I promise you won’t regret it!

All three anthologies are packed full of great stories from fantastic authors, so what better way to ring in Halloween then with a book or three!

Milestones

Well, I did it! With the acceptance of my poetry and a short story into two different anthologies I now have 56 pieces accepted for publication over the last ten months.

I am so thankful to the publishers who have accepted my stories and poetry over the last ten months, it means the world to me.

In light of this recent milestone, I’ve decided to challenge myself.

My aim now is for 75 acceptances by December 31st 2019.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

Hello, October!

Sadly, being in Oz I don’t get to share autumnal images or pumpkin spiced anything with you all in the northern hemisphere. But… I do get to share in Halloween, which I’ll be sure to blog about later in the month. It’s mostly for the kids, let’s face it, as a mum of four it’s always about the kids.

In the spirit of Halloween I’ve subbed to a few Halloween inspired anthologies and while a few are pending I feel like this is the perfect time to promote Forests of Fear from Blood Song Books.

This anthology will be available for purchase on October 31st 2019. I have three stories included:

  • Wild Fae, a story about a murder loving faerie.
  • Candy Corn Wolves, a story about Halloween and werewolves.
  • Witch in the Wood, a story about what witches get up to on Halloween.
  • I’ll be sure to share links the moment I have them.
  • Wolves and Ravens

    Ringing in the last day of September having written 1080 words of fantasy featuring wolves and ravens. It’s been an interesting time.

    To say it’s been a productive day would be an understatement because I actually haven’t written this much in a while. It feels good.

    Not only that but as of September 30th I’ve submitted 54 works ranging from poems and drabbles, right up to stories reaching 12k in length.

    Of those 54 submissions, I’ve had five rejections and thirty-five acceptances. Fourteen remain pending.

    It’s quite an impressive list and my aim is to see out 2019 with 50 acceptances.

    Fingers crossed I can achieve it! If I happen to reach it before December rolls around I’ll push for 60!

    Hello, Spring

    flowers

    A lot can happen in three weeks. Yes, that’s how long its been since my last post. We, in the Southern Hemisphere have said goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring. Of course, the weather around here can’t quite make up its mind.

    I love today for two reasons. One, because it’s officially Spring and two because the day and night are equal. Which somehow makes today seem more magical.

    Aside from that, I’ve been busy writing. Working on a range of different stories, from drabbles right the way up to longer fiction. Right now I’m struggling with a 2,000 word short story. I love the concept but the words just aren’t flowing the way I want them to and I really hate the thought of having to give up on the submission opportunity so I’m stubbornly persisting with it in the hopes that something comes of it fairly soon.

    So, fingers crossed. I think I’m going to need all the luck I can get.

    If in the meantime you want to check out any one of the stories I’ve had accepted for publication so far, go here. And if you haven’t caught up on my mini Camelot Series you can do so here.

     

     

     

    Curses & Cauldrons

    If you haven’t preordered your copy of Curses & Cauldrons you’d better do it fast! This anthology goes LIVE in a matter of hours!

    Within the pages of this anthology are eight of my drabbles. I won’t spoil it by rehashing what they’re about as I’ve done that twice already in previous blogs… BUT what I will say is if you haven’t, get your copy now! You won’t regret it!

    Get you copy here!

    Blood, Fire & Ravens

    I’ve had a lot going on recently, not all of it good unfortunately. But, I’ve pulled myself out the other side and am back to making things happen once again.

    So on to the business end of things… I’ve got a few story submissions to mention. Firstly, img_2357-1my story, Of Blood & Fire, was accepted into the Coffins & Dragons anthology by Dragon Soul Press. The release date has yet to be revealed but as soon as it is I’ll let you know.

    Secondly, my story, A Storm Of Ravens, will be published in Divinity, an anthology by Iron Faerie Publishing. It’s scheduled for release on the 25th of October 2019.

    I have other news to share, but I’ll make a separate post and share it when I’m not so strapped for time. Weekends don’t allow me much time at the PC. My kids have a tendency to hog it when I’m not quick enough. Roll on, Monday. LOL!

    Myth & Magic

    Iron Faerie Publishing are seeking submissions from 500 to 5000 words for their Myth and Magic anthology!

    Love mythology and mythical beasts?

    Then this submission opportunity is for you!

    Open until full there’s still time to submit. And with over a dozen spots left to fill, you’d better get writing.

    So, here’s three creatures I’ve stumbled upon during my research for this open call.

    Basilisk – The Basilisk was a mythological creature so venomous that its mere glance could kill.

    Chimera – From the right angle a chimera might look – if only for a second – like nothing more than a lion. But it’s far from it.

    Harpy – Harpies are mythical creatures in Greek and Roman mythologies with the head of a woman and the body of a vulture.

    I hope this open call and tiny selection of beasties inspires someone to write something great!

    Angels, A Divine Microfiction Anthology is LIVE!

    img_2247

    Angels, Book #2 in the Dark Drabbles Series by Black Hare Press is AVAILABLE  on Amazon TODAY!

    From the back of the book:

    Beatific angels, holy wars, kitty saviours, epic battles between good and evil, devils and demons, fallen angels and many more tantalising tiny tales of blasphemy and piety.

    What miracles can one hundred debut to bestselling authors do with 100 words?

    More than three hundred 100-word drabbles from around the world.

    I’m lucky enough to be among those three hundred, with my two drabbles, Lucifer and No Light, No Angels.

    Lucifer is a story about the fallen angel, Lucifer. While No Light, No Angels is something a little more personal and deals with the moments immediately following my mother’s death. It’s oddly fitting that the anthology releases on the 23rd July… one day before the anniversary of my mum’s death.
