Congratulations to the three winners for quarter 3 for Writers of the Future:
1st Place – William Mitchell of London, England
2nd Place – M.O. Muriel of Texas
3rd Place – Jacob A. Boyd of Oregon
Can’t wait to meet you all next April! :)
My short story, Sand-child, will be published in Daily Science Fiction on November 25, available to read that day for everyone on their mailing list. Later on their website for those not getting the stories to their inbox. I’m super excited because this will be my first pro publication, even though it’s technically not my first pro sale. Yay :)
Also, the RibbonSight Collection has been published in paperback and is now available for $13.99 through Amazon. It’s supposed to be $11.99, but I can’t figure out how to change it. Me = technologically unsavvy :(
RibbonSight: The Complete Collection has been published and is now available in ebook form through Amazon, B&N and Smashwords for $4.99. Trade paperback version to follow.
As a Navadin Council Investigator, Aly doesn’t have a lot of options. At least not any that matter. Yet, when her new partner, Sevori, starts pushing boundaries he shouldn’t, she begins to suspect he might be onto something.
From a castle with a mind of its own to a convoluted city hiding a dangerous burner, from a forest seeming almost alive to a small town in desperate need of saving, Aly and Sevori are sent all over the country of Emnik on assignment. Between a seer using broken ribbons to a runaway shifter, between pirates, children and the impressively skilled aged, they must fight.
Or discover a way to choose not to…
This collection includes the ten short stories: RibbonSight, Castle of the Corpse, Span of Imitators, Finding the Ribboned Snakes, Home for a Shifter, The Burner in Us All, Fragmented Seer, A Moving Evaluation, Only Council Aid and Pirate Mirror.
I’m a bit behind, so a late congrats to the Q2 Writers of the Future Winners:
William Ledbetter 1st Place – from Texas
Nicholas Tchan 2nd Place – from Sydney, Australia
Corry L. Lee 3rd Place – from Washington
Glad to see a girl in there, so at least I know I won’t be the only one :) Of course, she’s probably got a bit more brains on me considering she’s just received her PhD in Physics…a subject I will admit I have only a limited grasp on. Why, yes, my piece was fantasy, can’t you read my heading? Heh.
In any case…Congrats guys!
In other news as catch up…
Working on putting RibbonSight together into a collection right now. Stumbling my way through a pod version through Createspace at the moment and will announce when things have finally come together and have been published.
Also working behind the scenes on more upgrades to my site. I don’t like the way my bibliography is all set up right now and have been working slowly on a new way to showcase my indie published work, partially to separate it from my traditional work, partially because I have grand plans…(don’t we all)…and a million novels to write.
And a third tiny announcement that isn’t really an announcement at all. More like the announcement that an announcement is coming…I know, I know. I’m a dork.
There’s something fun coming. At least, it was fun for me :)
The tenth and final short story in the RibbonSight Series has been published on Amazon, B&N and Smashwords and is now available for $0.99.
Pirate Mirror: RibbonSight #10
During a teamed assignment to take out a crew of raiding Eatari pirates, Aly finds herself alone, fighting a burner whose abilities resemble her own. Now, with this mage literally burning down her neck, Aly finally starts to realize the very real hope in Sevori’s questions, but it could be far too late to matter for this burner isn’t just her equal…he’s better.
For some reason, the story doesn’t show up on the B&N site when I search for it, though the product page seems fine when I access it from my titles page. This is my first time publishing straight through PubIt so I’m not sure why this is happening.
The ninth short story (out of ten) in the RibbonSight Short Story Series has been published on Amazon and Smashwords and is now available for $0.99.
Only Council Aid: RibbonSight #9
After receiving a frantic message, Aly and Sevori rush to help another pair in a nearby town. They arrive to find the town in the midst of being destroyed and the townspeople defenseless against the attacking mage. A mage so skilled it might be beyond Aly and Sevori’s abilities to save everyone.
