Feeling a little bad today

I love writing about courageous characters. I have such a longing for people to be virtuous.

But every now and then, I like to look deeper into the mind of something gone wrong. Of course, novihomidraks (humans born of the dragon) are generally so noble, that when things go wrong with them, it gets a little bad, which can be fun. It also gives me great insights into their world.

Let’s go take a look at two of them.

Progress – November 12, 2018

I can’t believe we’re almost halfway through November now. When did that happen?

I’ve been reviewing where I’m at and all I accomplished (or didn’t) this year. It feels strange to not have my next publication date at least in mind — the calendar right now is barren, at least in that aspect. I do know what’s coming, I just don’t know how long it will take to get there; more on that in a moment. Right now, I’m about 10,000 words away from hitting my yearly word goal that I’d wanted to accomplish. I figure I’ll be there by the end of November. There is a part of me that’s tempted to take a month off. Don’t worry, I won’t — I fully plan on breaking the tape and continuing beyond, mostly because I’m curious how far I can go. Last year was too much of a push, so I had backed off some this year and still wanted to make it a challenge. I think that challenge has pretty much become norm for me, but I might want to shift my goals a little next year, so I need to take good stock of what I can do.

Next up on what I plan to publish is Tangled Magic. I’ve been working that over this week and am finally getting to a place where I’m satisfied with it. If you read the whole thing here on my blog, you are in for some wonderful changes. I hope you will be as delighted by the arrangement of scenes (it was getting a bit fragmented there at the end) and new scenes that have been added as I am. I do still have a lot of work to do on Walk the Path, but I hope it comes together just as quickly. Obviously there is also Dragons of Wellsdeep which is getting close to… well, I feel as if I should be three quarters of the way through, but I don’t think I am. But I know the direction I’m heading. I don’t know if I’ve ripped out a scene that will be coming up in the next couple of weeks or not — in trying to structure as I go, I can clearly see that this scene doesn’t fit, at least now where it’s at. I really liked the scene too. But maybe another book. Maybe it’ll be a book where I write the story around the scene just so I can have it (then I’d probably end up tearing the scene out of there too because it wouldn’t fit –writers are weird creatures).

That’s three books I plan on having out next year.

I know, I know. I hear you! There’s no Loki or Sacred Knight in that list. I know already!

For Sale, Call Loki – the audio

Yes, it’s now live and available most everywhere you get audiobooks. See below for links.

For Sale audio

Yes, I tinkered with the cover a bit for this version. I’m still on the fence whether or not I want to change it for the ebook and print version, especially now that the 5 novellas are all put together into 1-800-CallLoki; I’m just not sure that it would be a good use of my time. Maybe. Maybe someday.

But for now, you can get this lovely cover on your audiobook!

Here are some links. If you shop at another audio store, just search for my name. My books should come up. If they don’t, please send me a message and let me know where your store is. I have a good reach, but it might not be everywhere since there are so many. So do let me know.

Side note – This is my 700th blog post. If someone had told me that I would write 700 blog posts, I would have laughed. There’s no way I could be at a task for that long – I don’t have that type of consistency in my nature. Well, here we are!

Free Fiction: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 8

Ack! I must work faster. You are almost caught up to where I’m at, at least for spacing the chapters.

Must work faster, must work faster.

Not to mention that I still need to work out where I’m at.

I’m going to let you get to the story. Here we go:

Dragons of Wellsdeep is an epic science fantasy story filled with action, adventure, space travel, magic, dragons, and flying. Chapter 8 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!

Loki is back at it!

It’s out!

1-800-icebaby front small

Loki of Midgard – not something he ever thought he’d be – is back in this new adventure.  Up until now, he’d always liked sending unauthorized visitors to Midgard back to their home realms.

Now it no longer feels like retribution, but a chore. Can’t he sit back, drink his coffee, and run his businesses? Why must Bronwyn call him yet again?

All to check out alleged poltergeist activity centering around a lowly janitor at the mall.

Really?!! What does he look like? A security guard?

But the temperature is about to drop as Loki discovers the truth. And someone is going to take a fall.

Get it now.

The gnome did it

Loki did not do this. He swears on his immortal life. (No, you didn’t just hear him snicker!)

In this case, Loki is putting forth a gnome to be a scapegoat:

Personally, I don’t think it was the gnome, not this time. Even with as creepy as he is:

Watch out, he’ll steal your soul!

Okay, now he really didn’t do that!

It’s one thing for Loki to apologize for a mess on the floor. Okay, he might have done that.

But he certainly did not (read as: DID NOT!!!!) destroy the ceiling of the mall. You can’t blame him for that.

He needs some ice cream.

(Walks away shaking his head, wondering where he can get the nearest coffee flavored ice cream. He really needs it)

Coming August 28th! Pre-order now.
