Slave: A Dark(ish) Faerie Tale

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Radish, Slave

Because you’re never too old for Faerie Tales… In Faerie, slaves are property with no rights. Some owners are kinder than others, and everyone assumes the unluckiest slaves are the ones owned by The Winter Queen. Sometimes, the reality is so much worse than anyone can possibly imagine. Occasionally it’s better, but slaves don’t dare hope for the latter. Queen Mab has worked hard to make everyone in Faerie fear her, but her new little pleasure slave enjoys the kiss of her whip. Can the Dark Queen have a tender side? The Dragon King once loved her, after all, so there has to be more to her than the evil, ruthless queen we’ve seen so far. Climb aboard and experience the best and worst the Winter Queen can dish out, and you may even find a surprise at the end. Exclusively on Radish.  If you’ve already installed the app, this link will take you to the story.    


New Release!!! Of Humans and Monsters!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Books, Of Humans and Monsters

Book three of the Only Human urban fantasy series… When Aaron finally locates the human who wields light-weapons similar to Kirsten’s, her quiet family life is once again disrupted as she’s dragged into another fearsome clash of vampires, shapeshifters, and not-so-mythological gods. Aaron leaves for his honeymoon and she finds herself working side-by-side with the Amakhosi, so it’s a good thing the two have figured out how to get along — though controlling her libido around him was easier when he was an asshole cat. Several new species show up — some friendly and others most certainly a fierce enemy — along with a human assassin who scares the bejeebers out of her despite the fact he’s supposed to be on her side. Her old enemy Aquila’s back, as well as Xaephan and Mordecai. Add in another skirmish with Randall, more gods-of-old, and a fantastic night with a sexy biker, and you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of popcorn and batteries for the third installment of the Only Human series! NOTE: Of Humans and Monsters is book three of an urban fantasy series and is not a stand-alone. The first book is Only Human, the second is An Unhuman Journey.  Release date: April 28, 2017 96,400 words Buy it at: ______________________________________________________________________   Excerpt to come!

Advice to Beginning Fiction Writers

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Writing

We’ve all heard we should show and not tell, but my advice is to decide where you want to show and where you want to tell. If you feel the story’s bogging down and slow, look to see if you can change a few paragraphs into a sentence by telling instead of showing. If, however, the section is all telling, it likely means you’ll need to make things even longer by showing feelings and emotions. I once spent three paragraphs describing a doorknob and the character’s feelings about opening the door because that section had felt slow and tedious. I drew the reader back into the character’s emotions while giving more importance to what happened next, so they couldn’t wait to turn the page / open the door and experience it along with the character. Your first paragraphs should almost always open with showing. Love scenes and climactic scenes should also be full of showing and very little telling. However, if the first three chapters cover the events of the first month of college, but you want to quickly speed through the next two months, it’s fine to take a few paragraphs to tell the reader what happened during this time before you dive back into showing them what happens next. Often, it’s best to start a new chapter before speeding through a long passage of time and then slowing the story again. The important point here is how showing everything bogs your story down. Be selective in what gets told versus what gets shown, but then listen to beta readers if they tell you they wish you’d told them how a character feels about something. The following points involve ways to tighten your writing and/or give your prose more punch. Search for every instance of the word that. Odds […]
