Onesong – Chapter 19

November 22, 2017

“So, you’re posting the next chapter on Wednesday, right?” I got questioned this week.

Why yes! I am posting the next chapter.

I know several readers are enjoying this. Thank you for letting me know. Thank you to those of you who continue to share the story and remind their friends to keep reading as well. Remind those who haven’t started that they can get started now by reading the summary. Better late than never.

Well, on the flip side of this blog, I’m busy writing and working on Onesong and Prince of the Ruined Land, so I want to get back to that. This, therefore, will be short. Let’s get you to the story.

P.S. May you all have a Happy Thanksgiving. Don’t just fill your belly, but fill your imagination as well. (grin)

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 19 is available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear! 

Previously in Onesong: As a child, Rivic destroys not only his parents’ village, but also the village of his aunt and uncle, leaving only him and his twin sister, Nyree, alive. Alone,
hungry, and wandering through the woods, the twins are found by a beast that swallows
them whole. Ten years later (or so), the twins are hatched from a dragon egg. With each
of them receiving special dragon powers, they are charged with saving the world from a terrible evil rising. Unsure of this new world, Nyree quickly becomes ill. Rivic finds help from a nearby tribe who takes them in. The healer, Ellonia, has been seeing Rivic in her dreams for years and knows that he is the one destined to save her people. Until Necroathelings from Gohaldinest arrive and kidnap his sister. Rivic leaves Ellonia behind in order to go to Gohaldinest and rescue his sister. Along the way, he meets a cahaster, a small, kittenish dragon, named Dragzel. Rivic meets Cirvel, the Lord of Read the rest of this entry »

Onesong – Chapter 18

November 15, 2017

If you read my progress blog earlier this week, you know I felt like I decimated Onesong with a direct shotgun blast to it. With my Sacred Knight series, I’m well use to writing a nice story, then realizing that I have the scenes all out of order, which means I then have to dismantle and reassemble in the correct order. I should have known that Onesong would be the same.

Why can’t they be more like the Loki stories which are usually written fairly cleanly? Sigh. Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 17

I spent a lot of this last weekend deepening this story and tightening my net. I was so excited about it that I could barely keep myself from working on it. It’s just so much fun Read the rest of this entry »


Space Ninjas Aren’t Real

November 4, 2017

Or are they?

I will be the first to admit when this title popped in my head and I started writing it, I thought it would be a comedy, something along the lines of the humor in my Loki series.

Yeah, not so much.

Selena was too serious of a character right from the start. As the story progressed, I realized why she was so uptight. It took some prodding because she really didn’t want to admit that she’d done anything wrong. I’ll save that for the story.

But I did want to give you a preview.

Space Ninjas Aren’t Real hasn’t been run on my blog as a free story because I’ve been putting up Onesong instead. But now Space Ninjas Aren’t Real is up for pre-order and will be released on November 21, 2017 – just in time for reading while you are waiting for the turkey to cook this Thanksgiving.

Let’s go check out a sample of the story, shall we?

Onesong – Chapter 16

November 1, 2017

You know that I usually start with some sort of introduction. Sorry. I’m still too tired. Yep, too tired to tell a story. Thank goodness this one is already written, right!

Well, I’m going to post this, then I’m going to get to sleep. Hopefully tonight it doesn’t take me a couple hours to fall asleep like it did Monday night. You know, it was one of those Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 15

October 25, 2017

If you’ve been reading this from the beginning, I mentioned that this story was still rough. If you were paying attention in the last chapter, you probably saw it.

Did you see the sentence, “The spell that killed Evahn.”?

Yeah.

Since last Wednesday sneaked up on me so much, I had only read about half the chapter. I had to put it up.

When I got back to proofing the chapter, I went, “Who is Evahn?” Read the rest of this entry »

Oxygen will be released on October 31st. I figured a strange and weird story like this needed a special day.

While the whole story ran here, let’s have a little recap, shall we?

“Try to understand,” Shelly crooned with the music. But as she looked up at a cloud Read the rest of this entry »
