Small Update

Hi everyone,

Small update for you tonight. I was going to do the A to Z challenge this year and this past week decided to drop out because of school, my writing, and other behind the scenes stuff that is going on. I just felt like I wouldn’t be able to do my best on the posts for this year.

I did decide at the last minute to participate in Camp NaNo though because of my thesis project. I need to have the first 15k written by a certain time and Camp will allow to do that.

Thanks for understanding. Will post again soon.

Song of Smoke & Fire by Megan Linski

Author: Megan Linski
Genre: YA Fantasy, Reverse Harem
Cover Designer: Catnip Designs

“I am in love. I am in love with smoke. With fire. With thunder.”
Fliss is a slave, and bound to fulfill the king’s every whim. When a local dragon demands payment, Fliss is offered by the king as a sacrifice. She has no choice in the matter.
Yet what the dragon wants is more than Fliss expects. A curse has been cast upon him by a beautiful enchantress, and only one pure of soul can end it. If Fliss breaks the curse upon him, he will grant her freedom.
But there’s a man behind the monster, and as Fliss unveils the mystery that surrounds the dragon’s hidden past, she finds herself falling in love— despite it being forbidden.
Can Fliss tame the tortured beast? Or will her life be consumed by smoke and flame?

#IWSG: Writing Updates

 

Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

I have made some decisions regarding some of the stories I’ working on which I hope will make things easier for me in the long run. I have decided to set aside the older stories like the vampire series and the shapeshifter series for now and focus on my newer stories like Town Curse and the epic fantasy story. I will still work on the vampire series and the shapeshifter series as I get the time and after I finish the newer stories that are due soon.

One story I’m working on right now is called Thornheart Legacy and it will be included in an anthology later this year. A new novel I’m working on has the tentative title of Dragon Fury. Thornheart Legacy will be published under my name. Dragon Fury might be published under my pen name. We will see. Town Curse will most likely be published under Diane Riggins as well. I won’t know the final decision on it until near the end of 2019 because I’m using it for my thesis project in Grad school.

The epic fantasy will be published under my pen name and other stories will be a case by case basis. One reason I created the pen name is to keep my teaching separate from the writing. I will still publish some things like I said before under Diane Riggins but since I write fantasy and paranormal novels as well as YA I want to keep them as separate as possible if that makes sense.

Also, for those interested here is my new pen name and link to her site. Not a lot there yet. Please give her a follow.  The pen name is Jordyn Elliot. Let me know what you think of her name.

On that note I will end here with some other news as well. I’m participating in the A to Z challenge this year. I just have to come up with a theme and the topics now.

Look forward to your comments. 🙂

An Occasionally Grim Fairy Tale by Ann M. Noser

BLURB:

Prince Bane Baronne has baby fever. He is in search of a wife with the proper mystical bloodline to bear him the heir of prophecy. Anna Leon is chosen, but Bane only pretends to be Prince Charming. When Anna questions his intentions, she vanishes from the castle.

Convinced she is to blame for her younger sister’s disappearance, Maria Leon is coerced into the royal marriage instead. She is older, wiser, and should know better—but Bane always gets what he wants. And he is not above using trickery or treachery to do so.

Maria attempts to salvage what she can of a “happily ever after” by working hard to be the best mother and wife. Until the day she learns that every woman who has married into the Baronne line disappears soon after they have produced an heir.

And she is next in line.

Review:

I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it. The characters are well-written and well-developed. It has some great twists and turns to move the story along. I love the plot. Readers will be drawn into the story from the very first page. It is definitely one to add to your To Be Read list. You won’t disappointed when you grab a copy to read. I look forward to reading more of Ann’s books.

AUTHOR BIO:
Growing up an only child, I learned to entertain myself. During summer vacations, my greatest form of exercise consisted of turning the pages of a book. Now I’m all grown up, and full of stories half-written in my head. I have to write them down so I can find out what happens next.
