So, I've added two new pages for more Peravon lands. I have one novel for each right now (both in revisions but never published). Cover thumbnails are up, but here are larger versions:
ID 153778862 © Ihor Svetiukha | Dreamstime.com In the fantasy world, there are a few topics hot right now. Today, though, I want to focus on one in particular: The Rings of Power. It's an Amazon Original. It was created using the Appendices that Tolkien wrote for the books, and it is set long before The Hobbit or The Lord… Continue reading The Rings of Power
In an effort to restart my dormant muse, I'm developing a completely new series titled Cerulean Daughters. My mom (after reading my notes) said it sounded like a cross between King Kong and A Handmaid's Tale. My husband said it had Gorean aspects. Honestly, it is a good bit darker than things I've done before,… Continue reading New fantasy series!
I know, I know. I'm a tad behind. In the midst of rewriting The Lost Son completely, I got some help with sorting out a few things. (Thanks, Mama!) Now there is a new book 1 in progress, and The Lost Son is officially book 2. Heretic will be book 1, and it will lay… Continue reading Socendor Update
Or should that say: reWORLDbuilding? I just broke 6k words on The Lost Son, and I've realized that I'm essentially writing what amounts to a new book entirely. Yes, the story is the same, but this time, I'm writing it the way I want to write it. I backed up the timeline to 10 years… Continue reading Rebuilding
I forgot how nerve-wracking it is to rewrite a book (not to mention an entire trilogy, but one book at a time). The first big step is done: renaming the race of people who are ostracized elf-human offspring. They were once called Lithings (no idea why I ever came up with that name), but now… Continue reading Socendor Rewrites
So you might have noticed a bit of change going on here. I'm in the process of updating this site: new logo, info, etc. I'm also starting the heavy rewrites for the Socendor books (originally published as Mychael Black), and they do take place within the world of Peravon. Trivia: Socendor is a continent --… Continue reading New look!
I know, that sounds (reads?) a bit ominous, but it's true. I got back from the Pet ER (elderly pup with a nasty arthritis flare-up) around 2:30-ish in the morning. While trying to, you know, sleep, the muse decided 2:50 AM was a great time to toss in a tiny bit of dialogue and scene… Continue reading It has begun…
I suppose the alternative title for this post could be 'Why now?' I originally wrote as part of the gay romance genre, but after so many years, I enjoyed it less and less. I lost the drive and love of it. And that scared me. After a while, I realized I just couldn't keep going… Continue reading Coming out of retirement
