In what’s become a delightful winter holiday tradition, I have a story in WMG Publishing’s Holiday Spectacular! This time around, the sweet holiday romance of The Most Impressive Courage of a Little Tortie Cat features not only two people who need to get together, but two sweet kitties who help make it happen.
One of the frequent foundations in steampunk fiction—whether fantasy is included or not—is elements from the Victorian Era to go with the awesome gadgets and steam power and fashion.
One of my favorite things about the Victorian Era is how very strange it was.
Nowhere near as prim and proper as it seems on the surface.
You’ll find plenty of adventurous takes on steampunk, fantasy, and our fascinating inheritance from the Victorians in this StoryBundle. Read on for more about The Dream Thief and the other wonderful stories!
I love it when other writers post about their date-specific stories so I can check them out, but I forget to do that for the ones I’ve written. So I’m raising a glass of fine scotch whisky to that tradition here on Burns Night!
Soul Deep is a prequel short romance set in my Soul Travelers series, and it was an absolute treat to write. A sequel to the first novel Hand Me Downs may very well be appearing this year, too.
Welcome to the last day of 2021, and get ready for a trip back to the final hours of the last millennium!
I’m delighted to share my contribution to this year’s Holiday Spectacular from WMG Publishing with Sometimes Strange Magic Casts the Best Spell. You may remember the setting from The Magic Cat of the Hidden Springs Inn and Spa and The Inn, the Black Cat, and Two Halves of the Same Heart, both featured in past Holiday Spectaculars.
This time we visit 1999, which those of us who’ve been around long enough to remember it know was a very strange time indeed. Especially those of us who worked in the IT field.
You can read Sometimes Strange Magic Casts the Best Spell free on this site until January 3rd, with my warm wishes for a Happy New Year in 2022!
And my deepest, most sincere hope that we all experience a whole lot less strange over the next twelve months and into the future.
I hope this finds you well and enjoying the December holidays, no matter how you celebrate them (or not). If reading is on your list for this strange in-between week, or if you have a reader in your life, there’s still time to pick up the wonderful Holiday Collections StoryBundle!
You’ll get seventy-two (yep, 72) holiday-themed short stories by a group of amazing writers. And both the excellent Annie Reed and I are offering bonus collections of holiday shorts, so you can get even more escapes for the incredible low price of $15. My collection is actually an anthology my husband Jason A. Adams and I put together called Uncommon Holidays: A Different Side of the Season.
And even though the major gift-giving days has passed for many people, this is a great chance to make the readers in your life happy. You can also donate to AbleGamers, a charity dedicated to creating connection where it’s needed most, at a time when so many people need it.
But this amazing StoryBundle ends one day before December and 2021 do, so check it out before time runs out!
My new holiday collection A Tapestry of Holiday Tales: Winter Adventures from the Odds and Endings Bookstore is part of the Holiday Collections StoryBundle! And if you love short stories as much as I do, you are absolutely in for a treat. If you want to get a sneak peak, Odds and Endings, the first story in that series and setting is available free as part of The Infinite Bard.
This StoryBundle features eleven collections, for a total of seventy-two (72!) holiday-themed short stories from some of the best short fiction writers working today for only $15. That’s enough for an epic few days of vacation reading, enjoying a few each day from now until the dawn of 2022, or simply turning to when you need a hit of holiday magic any time of year.
