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.

So Fateful Magic it is for now. Here’s the next chapter. To read from the beginning, start here. Vadim pushed up from his chair …

Fateful Magic – Chapter 1

I’ve been trying to figure out a title for my new story. Since it’s set in the Land of Enchantment universe, It needs the word “magic” in the title. But what kind of magic? Since the story revolves around fortune-teller Emilia Dunmoor, it has to include something about the future or foreseeing. Prescient Magic? Imminent Magic? …

A New Land of Enchantment Story

After finishing Could It Be Magic, I hit a dry spell and so took a break for a few months. At last, I decided that writing something was better than writing nothing, so I started on a new story. I talked about writing something like this in my post on Reylo Trash, but didn’t really have …

Cover Confusion

You might notice two different covers for Could It Be Magic, the latest book in The Land of Enchantment series. This one, with the photo of Albuquerque and the Sandia Mountains in the background… …and this one. I’m doing some A/B testing to see which cover readers prefer. What are your thoughts?

I signed up for Pinterest a while back so I could post images from The Land of Enchantment books. New Mexico is a unique place, full of things not found in other parts of the county, so I thought it might be helpful to readers to be able to see some of the things I …

Jas and Amethyst

I found a cute illustration on Pinterest that’s almost perfect for Jas and Amethyst after the party in in Chapter 6 of Could It Be Magic. Except Jas has black eyes, not blue.The artist’s name is Reena, who goes by the handle rejoboart on Tumblr. Amethyst made herself let him go, put her hands on his …
