Wednesday Weekly Roundup


And we got a new title! As announced, here go the two covers. This week you can check Edwyn Blackmore, a m/m romance set at the beginning of the Varian Empire. You can check the chronology of all the stories here. And here’s the blurb of the latest.

Edwyn’s father demands he finds a bride, so he sets out for Xendaria, where the family originated, to look for a suitable maiden. He stops in a rundown castle belonging to his former sword teacher, Curzio, a Varian nobleman who never married and is the last of his line. Love and drama ensue. A Silvery Earth sweet m/m romance

Like I said, both covers have the same m/m couple by Ravven, but the newest one has a background with a picture of yours truly. It’s the interior of the castle Fortezza Verrucole Archeopark in Garfagnana, a wonderful place to visit if you ever get to Tuscany. Reenactors in medieval costumes show you the life inside the castle when it was still used.

Reading recommendations: check out the Cave Creek Series. I read the novel, Card Sharp Silver, and it’s a very enjoyable read! And I know most of the writers who contributed to the three anthologies. I know a lot about this shared world and I can only recommend you check it out!

Moving on to non-fiction for writers, two neat things came out last week, too late for me to include them in the post. One is the Write Stuff Bundle 2021 – I’ve met all those author (except Joanna Penn, and she’s British!) and they’re all terrific writers. I was even a beta-reader on Michael W. Lucas book. So, highly recommended.

The other spawned from The Covid Year (in their own world) – The Indie Author Magazine. I used to buy all the writers magazines when I traveled abroad, but I stopped because they focused on traditional publishing and finding an agent and all that 20th century publishing stuff. Welcome to the 21st century and the new world of publishing!

Eventually I might write something for them, but probably not this year, since I’m feeling sort of in transition, so until I settle in the new normal, I don’t have much to say!

Last week I wrote under 8K, on three different short stories. This week I’m probably writing for the workshop, but I also have other ideas fluttering around. Again, I don’t know if and when I’ll publish these latest stories, but then, they’re not the only ones still in a drawer (or computer file).

Maybe at some point I’ll do a collection of Rejected Stories in various genres, LOL! But I’m currently still writing and submitting them, and like Breathe found a home in the namesake anthology years after it was written, it could happen again.

Gente reminder that if you want free books in different genres, you should subscribe here. Currently LitRPG/Steampunk books are free! I guess that’s all for today and I wish you a wonderful week! 🙂

    I saw about the new book, and added it to the ones I really will grab soon, honest. LOL!

    I managed to write a post for my part of a blog tour that’s happening for the poetry anthology that just got released, but that was it for writing this week. I did, however, make a nice dent in the number of eMails in my inbox. Considering I also spent Friday night waiting to see a doctor to find out if I’d damaged my hand shutting it in another car door, and then spent most of the weekend recovering from being up for about 30 hours straight because of that, followed by a Monday filled with so many minor accidents I almost ended up heading to A&E again, it’s a miracle I achieved that much this week.

    • No rush, as usual! The Italian version of Edwyn Blackmore already sold 4 copies on Amazon and only 1 in English (which is actually good, LOL!) Next title will be the last (for now) collection of Silvery Earth stories… and there will be a final collection of Star Minds Universe stories… time to move on, innit?
      Here’s to your health improving and no more minor accidents to slow your recovery… hugs!

    That’s great about the sales. 🙂

    Yep, time to move on… Unless an idea insists on being written. LOL! I’m looking forward to seeing where you’ll be moving on to. Erm… After I catch up with what you’ve already written that I’m behind on, of course.

    Thanks about the health. *hugs* I definitely need some good vibes in the avoiding accidents area. 😉
