Fated Magic – Chapter 15

OMG! Tax time! And doing taxes, believe it or not, takes precedence over writing. *sigh* “Okay.” Irina settled into a chair and opened the laptop. “Today we’re going to google.” “Google!” Emilia said, laughing. “Yep. You’ll see.” It was raining today, a grey, steady rain that hissed on the glass and distorted the view of …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 13

I’m still looking for readers to review Fateful Magic. If you’d like to receive a free advance copy of the book for review, sign up for my mailing list or send an email to kathys.wizards@gmail.com. Dragovich seemed to have disappeared. Emilia saw nothing of him. Not with her own eyes. Not even in her readings …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 12

I’m really hoping to have Fateful Magic finished in another month, but between you and me, butt-in-chair time doesn’t always translate into words on the page. I won’t make promises, but I will do my darndest. If you’d like me to send you an email when the book comes out, sign up for my mailing …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 11

One thing writing (and reading) is great for, is getting away from real life. Stories make sense. They have villains and trials and suffering and struggle, but you usually know the hero/heroine will prevail in the end.  These days, I find a lot of consolation in getting lost in my story. Mob life is so …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 9

The girl in this photo is pretty happy about going to the ball. Emilia is definitely not happy about the party she’s attending. But the dress is kinda like I imagined, and the backdrop was just too cool to pass up. “No,” Emilia said. “Absolutely not.” Tiff lowered the gown she’d been displaying. The lace, …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 7

I’m pretty sure this is some famous person, although I’m going to betray my age and lack of interest in celebrities and admit I don’t know who she is. But she’s a lot like how I imagine Tiff. Emilia sits on the verandah. The soft, heavy air is alive with the sounds of night—the song …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 6

I’ve been doing research into the mob business model. It actually boils down to what people have been doing for centuries– politics with a side of intimidation and bribery and a dash of murder and mayhem to make things come together properly. Yikes! Emilia is in WAY over her head. If you missed the beginning …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 5

Well, the election is finally over. Everyone seems variously shocked, panicked, horrified, elated or some combination. Certainly we’re on uncharted and uncertain ground, waiting to find out what happens next. I’d sure like Emilia’s ability to see the future! …or maybe not. For now, I’m finding solace in writing about my crime lord. I enjoy thinking …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 4

I just noticed a big boo-boo with the chapters I’ve been posting. I completely skipped this one. So if you’ve been reading along and felt like you missed something… Well, you did. My bad. Sorry. Here’s the correct Chapter 4, in which Emilia tests the limits of her prison. Emilia awakened in a decadently soft bed. …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 3

Here’s the latest installment of Fateful Magic. If you missed the beginning, you can read it here. It’s fun looking for images to go with the chapters. At first, I was going to include one of Tiff, but then I decided, no. It’s got to be Vadim Dragovich (pronounced vah-DEEM), the Dragon of Russia and the …
