Make Way For the Dragons: An Unscheduled Vacation Among Other Things

*glances guiltily at last post*

*looks up at what appears to be quite a lot of Foot of Dragon that is planted firmly in her sternum and just above her heart*

So. I can explain.

You know how it is. You’re going around catching words, finding stories, and trapping characters–when out of nowhere: WHAM!

A dragon lands squarely on top of you and refuses to budge.

The dragon didn’t necessarily* land on top of you out of malicious intent. But a dragon is a dragon, and most people aren’t equipped to function normally when one is using them as a footstool.

Hence the unplanned “vacation” from this site.

The good news is that dragons eventually move on, and this one is stirring. The bad news is that I’m going to need another week or two to get things running again. The better news is that I haven’t been lazing about while I was being jellied. Nope. I’ve been working, as best I can.

Exhibit A:

TFGDBSCoverTwo things you might notice:

  1. This is my first box set. Yay! And it’s up for pre-order now. It’s also on sale. From now until the 29th of October it will be $3.99 everywhere but the iBookstore. (If you shop there, email me. I’ve found a clever workaround. ?) After that, it’ll go up to $8.99, which is still a good deal for six books, but not as good as the sale price. Fair Warning: I hate fiddling with prices across the platforms, so I don’t anticipate putting this on sale again any time (ever) soon.
  2. The second thing you might notice is the first book: Dragonspell. Heh. Yeah. Apparently the series wasn’t going to be complete (minus a collection of short stories that’s not going to happen for a couple of years) until I’d written the prequel I hadn’t realized was sitting there waiting for me to write it. If you joined the Wonder-Kin, then I’ve already sent a link for you to download the book for free.

If you haven’t, now would be a good time to join. Trust me on this. ? But if you haven’t, don’t worry. You won’t miss out. I’ll be release Dragonspell on the 8th of October and setting it for free. (It will take some time for it to be price matched on the Kindle. Apologies for that.)

In the meantime, here are the links for The Complete Dilemma:

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes | Google Play | Kobo

Exhibit B:


The Third Tale (out of four) in the Snow Queen series is going through edits at the moment, and will hopefully *crosses fingers* have an October release. Not enough time to do a pre-order for this one. Sorry.

That just leaves the fourth, and final, tale to be told–which is currently being written. Along with the first book in a new series that is a companion to the Snow Queen series and takes place in the same world.

More news on that series in a bit. ?

I’ll also be sharing more details–along with the first few chapters of Of Indigo and Ice once it’s through edits and the release date gets closer.

So yeah. Haven’t solely been napping between dragon toes. ?


Provided the dragon can be persuaded to find greener pastures, fatter sheep, and somewhere else to rest its backside, I’m planning on going onward and upward with the serials. This means we’ll be starting the second episode of The Curious Leaf, and continuing with Mira Morganstein, The Faerie Thief, and Secrets of the UnderWhere.

I really can’t wait to dive back into these stories. I’ve got some exciting things planned–both for the near future and the future further out.

Until then,

Don’t forget to dream!


*Still under investigation. There are a couple of characters under review that shouldn’t leave town–yes, using portals, dragons, and eldritch magic counts.
