The Writing Report (what I’m working on)

Work in Progress

April is turning into a busy and creative month for me. I’m completing the rough draft of the first book in my next series (a paranormal semi-romance for adult readers) while outlining the next book in the Fae Unbound series. That’s a crazy amount of work to take on around my full-time job, but I am having way too much fun to slow it down!

Cover images for each book should be available in May, but until then, here’s a hint what the books will be about.

1. Dragon Tender (Fae Unbound Series Book 2.5)

Dragon Tender is a short novella to fill in some of the the events happening in Europe that are only hinted at in Queen of the Fae. It introduces a new cast of characters, including the young elf, Avenall, who is proud of his heritage but doesn’t get why Elves hate humans so much. He’s interested in technology, music, and video, which he has to hide from his elders for fear of punishment. Best part? He hangs out with dragons :-)

Because I expect it to be no more than 30,000 words, it will be priced right at only 99¢. I’ll also give you a free copy if you sign up for the newsletter. If you want to get a copy as soon as it’s completed, be sure to sign up here!

2. The Familiar (Bad Tom Series #1)

Tom has been mostly cat for a long time, but when the witch who enchanted him is out of the picture, he finally sees a chance to break the spell. The pretty granddaughter who inherits the witch’s house and shop arrives bringing catnip and a chance at freedom. Too bad Tom is rapidly running out of lives.

The novel is meant for adult readers and gets a PG rating for mild language and sexual situations.

So, that’s it for what I’m working on right now. I’ll let you know when it’s done!

The answer is yes: things can get a lot less normal than that.

Throw in some controlling gnomes, a little brother who feels left out, plus a fae-worshipping ex-monk next door, and things can get crazy-less-than-normal fast. As Lizbet and her friends learn to use and control their magical powers, will they have what it takes to face down a new threat?

Book Two March Release Confirmed

Rough Artword for Queen of the FaeQueen of the Fae (Book Two in the Fae Unbound Series) is right on track for an early March release. To the left is the rough artwork for the cover, courtesy of my fabulous cover designer (and treasured friend), Peter Dahl-Collins.

WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVE NOT FINISHED BOOK ONE (MAGIC UNBOUND). DO *NOT* READ MORE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO RISK KNOWING TOO MUCH ABOUT THE ENDING OF THE FIRST ONE!

I’M WARNING YOU! REALLY, DON’T DO IT!

I apologize for the shouting. If you’re still reading after all of that, here’s a peek at what goes on in Queen of the Fae:

One month after Fae Day, Lizbet faces down tough times as she tries to adapt to being half-fae. More than anything she just wants to go back to being a normal girl.

Although she doesn’t know it yet, she’ll soon be fighting a battle with the fae Queen for control over her own body. Tanji, James, and Eamon team up to help her, but in the end it’s going to take everything she’s got to take her life back.

Tanji, James, Thomas, and Bobby all have larger roles in the second book, and the second book is longer than the first one. I’m really excited about Tanji playing a bigger part. She’s my personal favorite character: you can expect her to be even more important in the third book.

You’ll also meet elves, gnomes, wisps, and a dryad before the story is through, and all of the newly half-fae characters jump right in getting up to speed with what their magic can do. From healing potions to control over the elements, magic has definitely been unbound!

That’s it for now.
