Available Now – Chronicles of Riss: Adventures in Sorcery Paperback Edition

It’s here! It’s finally here! Woohoo!

What is? The paperback edition of my book, Chronicles of Riss: Adventures in Sorcery, that’s what! After debating it for a while, I finally decided to have a paperback version of this short story collection. And now it’s here and Chronicles of Riss is no longer only available as an ebook. Now, those of you who prefer to hold an actual book in your hand to read instead of an e-reader can enjoy this book full of fun, fantastical adventures.

Confronting evil sorcerers. Fighting monsters. Dueling metal golems. Searching for a sea monster. Hunting lost treasure. Finding a missing show dog. Competing in talent contests. Helping lost children. These are just some of the widely varied exploits that the young mercenary sorceress Marissa “Riss” Cobalt shares in this second Adventures in Sorcery book. Riss reveals how she ended up as a mercenary and chronicles some of the many adventures, ranging from fun to serious, that she’s had prior to the events of Kismet and Tell.

Present – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Eager to present his present to her, he ran inside the house and into her room. He jumped up on the bed, but when she didn’t wake right away, he let out a small mew. When she still didn’t wake, he crept up and lightly tapped her cheek with his paw. Finally, she stirred, and he sat back and dropped his present on her chest. Her eyes snapped open and she beheld her black cat sitting proudly beside the dead mouse lying on her chest. She shrieked and the cat watched, bewildered, as she swiped the mouse away. He jumped off the bed and ran from the room, wondering why she didn’t like his present.

Pours – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Feeling as gloomy as the weather because of their big fight, Julia steps outside while a tear pours down each cheek. When threatening rain, at last, pours down, she lifts her face into it and lets it wash her tears, and pain, away. Returning inside after a few minutes, she sees him come into the room and head over to the mini bar, where he pours them each a glass of wine and apologizes to her.

Why writing a book is like creating a parallel universe #amwriting #writerslife

G.L. Cromarty

Choose your own outcome…

When I was little there was a children’s book I read, and in the book you got to choose what happened next. Such books were not new then, and they are still around now. I saw an adult version of this not very long ago. You know the kind…

Lots of exciting stuff has happened…do you:

  • Open the door – go to page 64
  • Turn around and walk away – go to page 72

This got me thinking about the writing process, and how, when we write, we sit out of time, as if we are sitting on the edge of countless parallel universes.
