Free Fiction Friday: I Bring the Fire

Looking for a new series to binge-read this summer?

Consider C. Gockel’s series I Bring the Fire.

Part of the USA Today Bestselling Series

In the middle of America, Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma’s house. She’s being chased by a very bad wolf. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he’s done wrong — this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he’s forgotten…

In this urban fantasy tale that is equal parts “Dresden Files” and “American Gods,” a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors.

If Loki can remember exactly what he’s forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, Earthly pleasures, or three day benders, they just might pull it off…

This first installment of “I Bring the Fire” is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

This is a fun take on Norse mythology. I have a soft spot for Loki, and Wolves is a fantastic start to a satisfying series.

The first book, Wolves, is free on all major retailers. Download a copy today!

Free Fiction Friday: In a Manner of Speaking

What if time doesn’t run out?

Soshi Patel believes herself the last inhabitant on earth, trapped in an abandoned prepper’s shelter, living by candlelight and on canned peaches. Out of desperation, she uses the last of her good candles to build a ham radio from a kit. When she connects with a voice on the other side, it’s more than she could’ve hoped for.

But this voice, this Jatar, knows things he shouldn’t. As he comforts Soshi through the last days on a dying earth, it becomes clear that he carries his own burden, the weight of which can only be measured in time.

Download for free over on Instafreebie or listen over at Escape Pod.

Note: this is probably the saddest story I’ve ever written; you’ve been warned.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with a best of anthology

It was a busy week, but I managed to squeeze in 6,000 words, on various things. I also received a surprise email this week. My vignette, Playing Soldier, which appeared in issue #9 of Vine Leaves Literary Journal, was selected to be part of The Best of Vine Leaves Literary Journal 2014. Am I pretty excited about this? Well, yes. Yes, I am.

Lots of writers are talking about National Novel Writing Month, what with November right around the corner. I’m not going to join that, but I would love to reach 50,000 words in November, on various projects. I’d love to finish the Coffee & Ghosts serial, and I think there might be a novella kicking around in my subconscious, although I’m not 100% certain about that.

Writing Work:

  • Coffee & Ghosts series bible, more or less done
  • Miscellaneous writing ~ 6,000 words

Submissions:

  • None

Rejections:

  • Like Bread Loves Salt

Acceptances:

  • None
