We made it to the end of 2021! I don't know about you, but it's been both an incredibly slow and incredibly fast year for me.
Over the past 11 months, I...
changed day jobs
moved across the country
bought my first house
built my first home library/office
rediscovered my writing/reading muse.
That last one was the most recent. It's been slow going overcoming the slump the pandemic put me in. How about you?
I found that the peaceful Autumn and the arrival of the cozy holiday season (with fairy lights! Add first full-sized Christmas tree and first fireplace to the above list), I've been able to read a few books and write... a lot.
I mean a lot. Like, 50,000 words.
In other words, I WON NaNoWriMo (see November's post about this writing competition).
DONE: WITCHES & WOLVES
It was a touch push to write the whole thing during November, but I needed that motivation to get back into Dot and Cooper's world and wrap up their stories.
I promise this finale is going to be jam-packed with magic, danger, romance, turmoil, and a lot of chaos. Here's a teaser! Catch up on books 1 and 2 in Kindle Unlimited, and preorder book 3!
Although... I kinda want to write a ghosty novella or spin off with Dickon... Thoughts?
IN PROGRESS: HARBINGERS & VAMPIRES
I and and my co-author have also made great progress with Grave Notice (the Harbingers of Death book 3) with LeAnn Mason. Check out this new teaser, read books 1 and 2, and snag the brand-new prequel.
UP NEXT: FAIRIES
Next, I'm (very eagerly) diving into the world of fairies (fae) with the Branwyn Blood series, following the more eerie, traditional Celtic lore of Wales.
Starting in 2022, I'll be introducing you to this series, starting with Branwyn Blood, the protagonist.
Get a bit of back story when you read the prequel in the Bloodsport Anthology, which is only $0.99 and gives all proceeds to the Red Cross charity.
