There is also a draw for a gift card, and an excerpt , you’re gonna love it!

I can’t figure out how to add a widget, so here’s the link to it on Jennifer’s website:  http://pastthemirror.com/

“Inquisition: Book Three of the Lalassu now available for preorder on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.  To celebrate, I’m giving away a $25 Amazon gift card.

Detective Joe Cabrera used to have a pretty good life before he found out about the lalassu, but since then he’s been struggling.  Still, he has his purpose: make sure the bad guys stay behind bars, particularly Andre Dalhard.

Expert thief and master of disguise, Cali, grew up on the streets until Andre Dalhard rescued her.  Now she’s determined to rescue him from prison but the more she digs, the more she discovers things aren’t exactly what she thought they were.

Together the two of them will have to dig deep if they want to find the truth.  But their efforts threaten to uncover something even more dangerous that could destroy both friend and foe.”

 

SALE! On Shifting Shards anthology.

The first anthology to hit the shelves with one of my stories in is on sale for $.99 at Amazon. It was first by three whole days!  30 at 30 was released only 3 days after Shifting Shards: tales of transformation and metamorphosis.

The usual price for this anthology is around $5, and it includes 5 long (short) stories by Canadian writers, all around a central theme of shifting on Halloween. Shifting like werewolves, not beach sand. (Don’t ask why my brain went there on a freezing cold day)

My story, On This Day We Maen be Seen, has Norse werewolves, a 6fft tall Norse Dwarf and a Bean Sidhe (banshee) over the three nights of the full moon, which is on Halloween this year. A bad judgement call could lead to the end of the world.

It takes place in the same world as a series of novels I’m working on. And the Christmas anthology by the same publisher (Eighth Ripple Press) will have a vampire story from the same series.

So follow these links aand get your copy before the price goes back up!

Cover reveals and releases!

So, both short stories due in October are officially in anthologies!

Shifting Shards (Eighth Ripple Press) is a Halloween anthology containing a short story from my urban fantasy series set in Ottawa, Ontario. “On This Day We Maen be Seen” takes place between the first two novels, and introduces Moira, the lead character, to Lilu-Lilitu, an Incubus who is a major player in book two. In both senses of the word.  🙂

They will also be publishing a Christmas story in this same series, that has vampires. This story takes place in Eastern Europe and introduces us to some characters who may show up later.

A very bitey Christmas to all!

Coming out on October 27th is my short, “The Soul Eggs”, published in 30 at 30, the 30th anniversary anthology from Ottawa Independent Writers, of whom I am a proud member. The Soul Eggs is a short (under 2000 words) horror story based on a fairy tale.

I also received back the rights to a short story that won a fantasy writing competition and am releasing it as an ebook short. It is set in Terreagles, which is both the fantasy country my medieval series is set in, and the actual name of a micro-kingdom my ancestors owned in northern Scotland about 800AD.

This one fits into the set of Terreagles novels starting with Nets to Catch the Wind, and is backstory for one of the main characters.

My next Nano novel, and the first to be published (I hope, possibly, maybe but I just figured out how to fix Nets to Catch the Wind) is called A Ring of Earth and takes place roughly 200 years before this story.

I am currently trying to convince a publishing program that a 2500 word story does not need a table of contents. It disagrees. Stoopid program.

So I have sent a note off to a live person. Hopefully they publish short stories or I’ve just wasted all day fighting with it.
