April (snow) showers, 99-cent sci-fi and fantasy, and some free fairy tales

So this is what it looks like right now (more or less).

I’m not sure what April (snow) showers bring. Chihuahuas, maybe.

 

 

 

 

 

So, with that, I think it’s entirely appropriate to curl up and read until spring starts in earnest. Author Patty Jansen is hosting another of her fabulous promotions this weekend. All the books are organized by category so you can jump to your favorite sub-genre.

99-cent promotion

Or if you’re in the mood for fairy tales, you can download some for free during the entire month of April.

The free and fabulous fairy-tale promotion.

Happy reading, everyone!

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the bundle of ghosts

So, this week, I released the bundle of season three of Coffee & Ghosts, because some people like their coffee and ghosts all in one place. I’m still doing the print layout for it, but that should be ready in a week or two.

And … I started in on a new story. For now I’m calling it How Goldie Lost Her Locks, and it’s about how … Goldie lost her locks. I’m also outlining another one that I think I’ll call An Army of Toads. And if you’re thinking to yourself: hm, those sound like reimaged fairy tales, you might be right.

Otherwise, I filled the week helping my daughter with her Girl Scout cookie sales … lots and lots of cookies sales and lots and lots of cookies.

Now Available: Ghosts and Consequences!

ghosts-and-consequences

It’s here! Just in time for Halloween!

Season Three of Coffee & Ghosts starts now!

Ghosts and Consequences

Reluctant necromancer Katy Lindstrom is worried about mixing business with pleasure. All she wants is a few hours alone with her more-than-a-business-partner, Malcolm Armand.

Before they can sort through their feelings over a cup of Kona blend, another necromancer lands on Katy’s doorstep.

Malcolm’s father.

He brings with him tales of old betrayals and fresh lies. But a bigger danger lurks in Springside—a powerful ghost sent to destroy Malcolm’s brother.

Exorcising this particular ghost won’t be easy, especially since it has whispered tales of its own, ones that sound eerily familiar, ones that link Katy’s family to Malcolm’s.

Even if Katy and Malcolm can eradicate this ghost, one thing is clear:

Falling in love is the last thing they should do.

New to Coffee & Ghosts? Read the pilot episode for free (or listen to the audio version from The Drabblecast). Or jump right in with Season One and Two–now available on all vendors.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with Gretel and Hansel

Well, that story I was working on last week led me down a rabbit hole. I’m 7,500 words in and–dare I say it–I think I might have another series on my hands. We shall see. I plan to complete the draft of this story and, with a little luck, finish off Story a Day in May with another shorter story or two.

In other news, I sold Gretel and Hansel!

I’ll talk more about that later, when I know what issue the story will be in, but I’m very excited about the market (pro-paying) and pleased about this sale. And if you scroll through my weekly entries, you’ll see that I’ve been sending this one out, consistently, for a while.

And the biggest news this week is that the Simply the Best boxed set went on sale. And if you’ve been reading along or follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you already know all about that.
