Thanks to one of my classes last term I now have a new story idea and it involves elementals. I had to post a story idea based on some pictures the teacher uploaded and came up with the elemental plot and the teacher and my classmates loved the idea and suggested I move forward with writing it.
So, I’m outlining it now and am thinking of revamping the vampire series to be not just about the vampires but elementals and other paranormal/supernatural beings. It would still be a series and the series title would change. I’m also thinking about making the Witches of Raven’s Nest series one that will kind of overlap and involve characters from the new series and the characters from Witches would be in the new series but each book would be an individual story about a character.
I think the two series will be written in the pen name. Of course other than the one story I have coming out later this year I’m thinking everything will be written under the pen name after that.
Let me know what you think. 🙂
Hi everyone! I’m here! Today’s the day that my book ADANA THE EARTH DRAGON finally is released into the world. Want to read a sample? Sure you do:
Once upon a time there was a small brown dragon called Adana. Adana was an earth dragon and Adana was very sad. She longed to play with the other dragons, but none of them would accept her as a friend. “It’s because I’m small and brown and boring” she said. “No one wants to be friends with an earth dragon.”
The air dragons would soar through the sky, their wings outstretched. Adana wished she could join them up in their playground of clouds, but she had no wings.
The water dragons would glide effortlessly through the lagoon, playing tag and Marco Polo. Adana yearned to join in their games, but sadly she could not swim.
The fire dragons scared little Adana with their tremendous scaly scarlet forms and flames that could toast two hundred marshmallows with one puff. Adana secretly tried gargling with fire water to see if she might make a flame, but she only gave herself a sore throat. Poor Adana, she could never be a fire dragon.
So sad little Adana slunk into her cave, curled up in a corner, and took a nap.
Now you can’t just leave little me like this – Can you? So pick up a copy of my story, ADANA THE EARTH DRAGON today.
It’s available in paperback from Amazon or directly from this site. There’s even a companion coloring and activity book available.
Prefer to read on Kindle or listen on Audible? I can to that too and the book is available free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
AND a bonus the first TEN people to order a copy from this website today will pick up a free audio book of Adana narrated by the awesome Fiona Thraille. This offer is available for orders from the US or the UK. (If you’re in the UK message me for shipping costs – I will be traveling to the UK in June, so if you can wait until then to receive your books I can make the shipping costs a bit cheaper!)
PLUS all orders receive a signed Adana bookmark and a coloring sheet!
So Happy Earth Day folks. Remember to protect the flowers from those big bad giants!
Peace and Love,
So sorry this is being posted so late in the day. I admit I forgot about it until a few minutes ago. I have been busy with school. I have two final projects due next week that I’m working on as well as two stories that are due to be submitted soon.
My goal for Camp NaNo is off to a good start I have a little over 4K written of the 15k goal I set for myself. Also, this term has been teaching me a lot about the different genres like speculative fiction. I have read some interesting articles and books this term as well.
For one class I was able to share my knowledge and love for The Lord of the Rings which my goal is to teach classes about Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, and even The Hobbit. For the other class I have read Stephen King’s On Writing. It was very interesting.
Have some things I’m working on behind the scenes that I will share at a later date.
That’s it for now. 🙂
Look forward to reading your comments. 🙂
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.
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. 🙂
