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.

5 Years

I just noticed that today is my 5 year anniversary on WordPress!

Wow! Where does the time go?

I know I haven’t been posting as much lately as I used to. Things have just been rather busy for me. I hope things will slow down a bit soon so I can get back to posting more on here  – and getting more writing done to share with you all about.

In the meantime, I thank you all for following me and I hope you have enjoyed what I have managed to share with you so far, and I hope you will continue to follow me through this somewhat dry spell, enjoy what I do manage to share with you, and look forward to when things will finally pick up.

Things Bookworms Worry About When Reading Book Series #Bookish #bookseries

BlondeWriteMore

As a bookworm I enjoy reading a good book series, I love the excitement of finishing a first book and making a frantic dash onto Amazon to buy the second. I am a big fan of watching an author’s Twitter feed like a hawk for news on when the next book in their series is coming out.

Book series demand a different sort of reading mindset from you.

At the outset you have to accept the following:

You are in this for the long haul. Completing a book series can take months and even years in some cases, depending on how fast the author churns out the books.

The characters you get to know in the first book may not reach the third book. You have to keep control of your emotions.

If like me, you enjoy keeping the author updated on your book progress via tweets, regular DM messages…

A Cozy Cat – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

Nick and Nora glanced over from where they sat on the couch to look at their silver tabby cat all curled up, asleep in its soft cat bed under the window. A sunbeam streamed through the window to cover the cat like a warm blanket. His tail would occasionally twitch slightly.

“Shasta sure looks cozy over there, doesn’t he?” Nora asked.

“He sure does,” Nick said. “And look. He seems to be smiling. I wonder what he might be dreaming about.”

“I don’t know. But it must be something nice, for him to smile like that.”

“I suppose so.”

Nick and Nora turned their attention back to the TV and let Shasta sleep.

***

In his dream, Shasta sat perched on a throne high up at the top of a flight of stairs. Female cats sat at attention around him. Two humans stood at either side of him, fanning him with large feathers. He tried to fight the urge to jump and attack the feathers since it would be unbecoming for a ruler of his stature.

Below him, at the foot of the stairs, a large crowd of humans was gathered. They chanted his name continuously and bowed to him over and over.

Nick and Nora walked from a side room at the foot of the stairs and climbed up them. They were dressed in servant’s clothes. As they approached Shasta, they bowed. When they finally stood before him, they kneeled and held out plates full of his favorite foods.

Shasta’s tail twitched happily and he purred in contentment.

It was good to be the king, he thought.

***

A loud purring sound coming from Shasta in his cat bed caught Nick and Nora’s attention and they looked away from the TV to look at him. The cozy cat’s tail was twitching more and, if possible, he looked to be smiling even more.

“Just what is he dreaming about?” Nora asked.

Nick shrugged and replied, “Probably world domination or something. Isn’t that what cats are supposedly planning, anyway?”
