Fateful Magic – Chapter 3

Vadim Dragovich

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 …

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?

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.

Could It Be Magic – Chapter 14

Second Thoughts Jas wasn’t coming back. Amethyst was sure of it now. She sat by herself at the dining room table eating a stuffed baked potato for dinner and pretending the realization didn’t make her stomach upset.

Reylo Trash

I heart dark lords

I learned a new slang term this week: trash. As in, “I am Reylo trash,” a crazy fan. I would be, except…. Well, there is no Reylo. At least, not yet, there isn’t. “Reylo” is the couple name for Rey and Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I’ve been seeing fan art all over Pinterest …

Happy New Year! May your year ahead be filled with magic. Stay the Night It was going to be weird. Amethyst hadn’t thought about that part when she suggested that Jas stay with her. But she thought about it now, remembering how strange it had felt when he’d opened her coat closet for her coat. …

Women, Know Your Limits!

Okay, I’ll admit right up front, the title of this post is clickbait. But it’s applicable– I promise! In Chapter 10 of Could It Be Magic, Amethyst sarcastically apologizes to Jas for offering her opinion by telling him that in the future, she’ll only talk about fluffy little kittens. When I wrote that line, I had this …
