Not as dramatic as it sounds, but I started the third (and final) episode of Coffee & Ghosts this week. Now mind you, if I think up something for a season four, I’ll totally write it. But for now, I’m wrapping up most (if not all) of the story threads.
It’s a bittersweet sort of thing. I’ve been writing about Katy, and Malcolm, and all the ghosts for more than a year now. I’ve been writing a little bit slower because I’m going to miss them.
It’s also the beginning of the end of the 99 cent launch price for The Shapeshifter Chronicles. So you might want to get yourself a copy.
Otherwise, just some tutorials and some reading.

- Photoshop and Vellum
Last few days to get the The Shapeshifter Chronicles for 99 cents! The price will go up mid-week, so grab your copy now!
It’s here! It’s here! The Shapeshifter Chronicles is live over on Amazon, with a print version coming very soon!
The anthology includes my short story With Hair of Teeth and Claw, which is a retelling of Rapunzel. There are some nice, early reviews on Amazon, including this:
A refreshing and original take on a classic fairy tale, flipping traditional conventions on their ear while remaining an enchanting and mesmerizing story about unconditional love.
I’m so thrilled to be part of this fabulous anthology. And it’s only 99 cents for the time being, so go grab a copy!
In other news, I finished episode 2 in the third season of Coffee & Ghosts and started brainstorming the third. Plus! I sold a short story this week as well.
It was one of those weeks where I have something in every category. I like those weeks, even the rejections–it’s all part of the process.

With Hair of Teeth and Claw in The Shapeshifter Chronicles.
I didn’t quite finish up Coffee & Ghosts. Tomorrow, definitely. This weekend? We’re heading out for some fun, taking some out-of-town guests to the Mall of America (which is really the only time I go, more or less).
We will probably eat some delicious food, although not the sushi burritos. I haven’t tried them but they sound like the perfect food for my son.
Next week brings some fun things. I have a story in a forthcoming Future Chronicles title, the Shapeshifter Chronicles, which will be released on July 30th. So part of this week I spend reading the advance author copy for any last-minute fixes and formatting issues.
More about that later in the week. In the meantime, I hope everyone in the northern hemisphere is enjoying their summer. Stay cool!
