Weekly writing check-in: the one with the cover reveal

So while I’m not quite doing A Story a Day in May, I am writing and finishing stories (more or less). This week, I ended up with three short stories, each a bit longer than typical flash fiction. I also have one in progress, which will go into this coming week’s total.

But I’m pleased with the challenge so far. I love reading and writing short stories and this has been a great way to experiment and try new things.

Also? I’m just a little bit distracted by the upcoming release of Simply the Best. Short stories make it far easier to get my regular writing in.

Writing Work:

  • Writing: ~ 5,200 words in three short stories
  • Craft work (reading, video lectures, etc.)
  • Promo for Simply the Best

Submissions:

  • Gretel and Hansel
  • The Bargain
  • The Life Expectancy of Fireflies

Rejections:

  • None

Acceptances:

  • None

It’s here! The season two series bundle.

Get your coffee and ghosts in one volume.

Coffee and Ghosts 2 Ebook cover

When Christmas brings both strangers and ghosts of the past to Springside, ghost-catcher and expert coffee-brewer Katy Lindstrom fears her new business, new relationship, and quiet hometown will never be the same.

She’s right.

The ghost of a jealous dead husband. A sexy siren of a spirit who has a claim on Malcolm. It will take more than some excellent Kona blend to permanently rid Springside of both the unwanted ghosts and the necromancers who brought them to town.

But Katy harbors a secret, the sort more than one necromancer is willing to kill for, and this time, the stakes are higher than she ever imagined.

This time, to keep Malcolm, Springside, and even the world safe, Katy must do the one thing she vowed never to do.

And once she does, there’s no turning back.

Coffee & Ghosts is a cozy paranormal mystery/romance serial told over multiple episodes. This series bundle contains all three novella-length episodes of Season Two, in Kindle and print.

Episode 1: Ghosts of Christmas Past
Episode 2: The Ghost That Got Away

Now available! The Wedding Ghost!

The finale for Season Two is now live!

Wedding Ghost_small

 

Something old. Something new. Something deadly.

It’s been months since the Midwest Necromancer Association came to town, courting Katy with promises of wealth and power. Her only concern now is how to contain a couple of mischievous sprites and keep her ice-pink bridesmaid dress coffee-stain free—at least for the wedding ceremony.

But weddings have a way of bringing strangers to town, and when strangers come to Springside, trouble follows. Especially since Katy has a secret, the sort that inspires betrayal and murder, and one that can unleash untold destruction.

This time, the stakes are higher than Katy ever imagined. This time, to keep Malcolm, Springside, and even the world safe, Katy must do the one thing she vowed never to do.

And once she does, there’s no turning back.

And for one week only, grab the episode for 99 cents over on Amazon.

Now available! The Ghost That Got Away

Here you go! A belated, ghostly valentine, the second episode in season two of Coffee & Ghosts.

The Ghost That Got Away

Coffee. Ghosts. A kiss for Valentine’s Day.

Katy Lindstrom knows that the ghosts of past loves don’t limit their haunting to Valentine’s Day. Even so, she’ll serve up a two-for-one eradication special with a smile and plenty of Kona blend.

But this Valentine’s Day, the past comes to Springside—in human and otherworldly form—and it threatens to derail everyone’s happily-ever-after, Katy’s business, and even her relationship with Malcolm.

When a powerful necromancer launches an attack meant to force Katy into a decision, she will need to make a choice. If she wants to keep Springside and its ghosts safe, she will need to make a sacrifice of her own—one that involves her happily-ever-after with Malcolm.

And for one week only, grab the episode for 99 cents over on Amazon.

So, this week, along with formatting, reviewing, and publishing Ghosts of Christmas Past, I did what I’m calling a content edit on the second episode. I wanted to make sure things were more or less in place before I published the first episode and embark on writing the third. I also did some work on a short story, and I think I know where I want to take it.

Also, The Girl with the Piccolo found a new home this week over at Evil Girlfriend Media, and I turned around another submission.

And it’s still snowing on WordPress.

Writing Work:

  • Content edit on episode two of Coffee & Ghosts
  • Ghosts of Christmas Past formatting and publishing
  • Short story review/revision

Submissions:

  • Gretel and Hansel

Now available: Ghosts of Christmas Past!

Ghosts of Christmas Past

Katy Lindstrom knows December is the best time for ghost hunting–all you really need is some excellent Kona blend and a little patience. But this year brings a ghost of Christmas past she might not be able to catch.

All Katy wants is to enjoy the uptick in business and forget that this is the first Christmas without her grandmother. But when one of Springside’s notorious citizens returns–as a ghost–and leaves a dear friend in a coma, Katy will try anything to get Christmas back on track.

A disastrous ghost eradication leaves her partner Malcolm scalded and both of them out of options. Katy must sort through her feelings for him while fending off the interest of a shady cabal of necromancers.

And if she can’t catch that elusive ghost of Christmas past? It may end up ruining everyone’s future.

Now Available: Dating on the Dork Side!

front cover rgb jpg

Today’s the day! Dating on the Dork Side is in the wild! The book is available in print and in Kindle format. Don’t have a Kindle? No worries. Download one of the Kindle apps. (For iOS, Android, PC. I have the Kindle App on my iPhone–it works great.) You can read it that way. Or read it in print. That works too.

Additionally, Dating on the Dork Side is available as a Kindle Matchbook. If you buy the print version, you can get the Kindle version for free. Note: You must buy the print version first and from Amazon for this to work.

Stung by an epic betrayal, Camy Cavanaugh relies on the sure things: her best friend, her job as peer tutor, and her safe spot on the sidelines of life. But when she hacks into a secret, trash-talking website, it ignites a war between the sexes that won’t end until the whole school is turned upside down–and Camy’s world is turned inside out.

Now the hottest girls in school refuse to date the A-List boys. But with the Homecoming dance looming, everyone from the queen bee to the girl “most likely to” pushes Camy to hook them up with guys from the nerd herd.

And then there’s quarterback, A-lister–and former crush–Gavin Madison. He hasn’t spoken to Camy in three years … but he’s talking now, begging her to pair the guys on the football team with girls from the Honor Roll.

It’s a contest of wills and everything is on the line–even Camy’s heart. Will she retreat to the sidelines, or will she find the courage to get back in the game?

Curious? Read a couple of early reviews here and here.
