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 10

I’m finally coming down the home stretch on Fateful Magic. I’m working on Chapter 20 now, and figure I have around three chapters to go. I’d love to give away some advance copies for reviews. If you’d like one to review, send me an email through my Contact Me page. You can also sign up …

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 8

Happy New Year! I’ve been getting some writing done over the holiday. I hope you’ve been enjoying yours! Trees rise all around Emilia, dim and blurred by fog, their tangy, resinous scent so rich she can almost taste it. The air is chill and grey with pre-dawn light. Water drips from dark evergreen needles with …

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 …

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?
