Writer Wednesday


And it’s official that the Sci-Fi May Day bundle is on all retailers and The Path of Fire (Quests Book 2) is out! 🙂

coverSci-fi May Day bundle blurb:

From the far reaches of the unknown come these stories with space ships, aliens, new planets—and more! Take a voyage of imagination with these science fiction tales. Stories to thrill with and ponder about.

Stock up now for your spring and summer reading! 10 sci-fi novels at 7.99$

PathFireDTFThe Path of Fire blurb:

Raykim is bored. His strange looks mean nobody wants him. Sila fear him, Humans think he’s a demon, Fajrulo don’t care.
A young half-blood with blue hair and bat-like wings, pointed ears and yellow eyes, he has the power of Air and Fire. When he makes rain pour over a gladiator ring, something unexpected happens.
It’s the beginning of a new life, finding friends, moving away from his birthplace and slowly – very slowly – growing up. The quest for Keneith’s mother becomes a journey though life’s highs and lows.
Throughout the whole continent, a story of coming of age and falling in love. And dragon cubs. A Silvery Earth short novel.

I’m currently reading the sci-fi bundle, since I’m back to the Star Minds universe to write Star Minds Interregnum Volume 2. Procrastination techniques before starting as usual, but once I start a story, I usually go quite fast – circling around for a clean first draft.

Suggested posts this week: Attitude. It’s everything in writing. And please don’t be this kind of author – I’m sure there’s the female equivalent. I use a pen name and my avatar is still a drawing, but even when I post pictures of myself, it’s certainly not a model that I pass off as myself. Those are the people trying to game the system.

So, don’t run from who you are. And accept responsibility for your writing career. And here’s to killing another sacred cow of publishing: talent. Now get yourself in one of those online workshops by Dean Wesley Smith or David Farland and learn to be talented! 🙂

Have a great week!

Writer Wednesday


Today People is now available in print. A new ebook is out, Amazons, that I (re)wrote in 2014 and left in a drawer for two years. I’m not rewriting the other story I wanted to put with this, so I’m just publishing as is. Cheer, I’m learning to leave the old stories alone! 😉

Still working on the new Silvery Earth story, it’s a novella for now (14K) and might become a short novel eventually. Since I still don’t like the title, I’ll just call it the current WiP until I’m done. Then I shuffled the writing projects around for May and the summer for various reasons.

I finished the Author Voice workshop and immediately signed up for another one – Teams in Fiction. I won’t be writing that novel in eight days, because it’s the story of a team, or better, the protagonist has teams with her (rebels in part 1, crewmembers in part 2, traveling companions in part 3), so I’ll just do this other workshop before tackling the novel.

So in May I will finish that current WiP, then write a story for an anthology celebrating the battle of Hastings of 1066, so you’ll see some of my vampires roaming the battlefield sometime around the end of the year. As for those 8 days off DayJob, I will use them to finish working on the publisher page and maybe write an extra story or two to submit. I haven’t been submitting lately, and it kinda sucks.

For the publishing side, this month you’ll have another collection of Amazon stories, although none is new. The new short story will be going out to traditional markets throughout the summer, then we’ll see. The Tales of the Northern Kingdoms will start coming out next month.

A link to a serious discussion: how do you support an author? By buying her books! But there are still people who want free books. Seriously? Yes, seriously. Sigh. I always thought that those who got only free books were not readers but downloaders (who wouldn’t read the books anyway)…

And then I get a google alert of a pirate site where everybody seems to love my book. But again, they’re not willing to pay for it. Sigh. I hope some day my true fans will find me and support me.

And don’t forget it’s the last days for the sci-fi bundle! It will soon be gone! Go get it now! Up to 52$ of books real cheap! Don’t miss this!

Have a great week!

Sunday Surprise


And it’s a bundle! Science Fiction May Day is on for two weeks only, so get it now! 10 novels, including one from yours truly! Buyers get the chance to get up to $52 worth of great science fiction for only $9! Go get it now!

bannerIt’s the first bundle I’m part of and I’m awed at the company… I have read Blaze Ward’s Siren from the previous bundle and it’s awesome if you like military sci-fi! Haven’t read the others yet, but will… eventually… So, even if you already have Technological Angel, grab Da Bundle and try the other authors as well!

Now I really feel like the May Queen, LOL! 🙂 Have a great Sunday!
