Update!

Image result for warrior princess anime"

Friday!  Update time!  As I have received a couple requests for updates, here you go!  I expect to finish the first draft this weekend.  I have cleared the decks, so I can spend the next three days focused on writing, and barring something unforeseen– or the story going crazy on me somehow—  I believe I will have the draft done.  Then, a week editing, and maybe– just MAYBE– it will be out sometime in early February.  As promised, I will post when the draft is done, and I will also alert you when the material has been uploaded to Amazon.

I thank everyone for your patience and interest.

I am getting lots of questions about Maxis and Progenita.  My original plan was for the third book to include a clarification of the gods and their roles in the world.  The way things have gone, I am not sure that will happen.  However, if it doesn’t fit into the story, I will post something here, though I want to emphasize what will be revealed will be a “grounds eye view” meaning that it will be knowledge that becomes available to the people of The Shattered isles and not authorial revelations.  Why?  Well, I feel that it is good to keep a little mystery about things!  I do think people will be largely satisfied, if not pleased at the revelations to come.

Many questions will be answered.  Who ends up as King of The Shattered Isles?  How do things end between Serren and Pattenia?  Will Maxis or Progenita rule? What will the third age in The Shattered Isles look like?  All will be answered!

 

The Shattered Isles Map

Good day, dear readers and random strangers who may have stumbled upon this page.  Today I share with you the map of The Shattered Isles!  The map indicates which regions or islands are governed by the various royal houses.  Please note that this map is not to scale as a modern map would be.  Even with magic, the people of The Shattered Isles lack the precision of our modern times, so some things may look wrong to the dedicated readers of my novels.  Specifically, Gaunefer is actually the most distant island from the capitol, though it may not appear so on this map.

Meanwhile, I am busily typing away on the third book. If you haven’t read the Brother Bewitched series, why not take a moment and check out a free sample?

Unlike works like Brain Biters and The Shattered Isles series, this book does not focus primarily on gender, though gender issues arise as they do in modern life.  This is a book about a 13 year old kid with a dysfunctional family who just really does not want to have to deal with ghosts right now on top of everything else.

One last note.  I am only charging .99 cents for this 196 page novel.  Please do not think that price reflects a lesser commitment to quality on my part (other books I have charged 2.99 or 3.99).  Rather, I am hoping to get more readers by making the price lower.  I put just as much work into this book as any of the others!  In fact, look for a mark down on Brother Bewitched soon, if you haven’t bought that one yet.

In the meantime, please follow and enter to win!  I would love to give you my book!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

Brother Bewildered: Now Available!!!!

brother2smaller

Yes!  You heard correctly!  The second book in The Shattered Isles series is now available on Lulu and Amazon in ebook form!  The paper will be available any day now!  I am just waiting for it to process.

For those who have not yet come to visit The Shattered Isles, the books tell the story of Crown Prince Serren, first in line to the throne and the embodiment of male privilege.  That is, until his sister uses forbidden magic to turn him into a girl.  As Pattenia’s younger sister, Serren no longer has claim to the throne and watches as his sister takes his crown and consigns him to a life of corsets and gowns.

Book II continues his struggles learning to live as a princess, while his sister continues her journey into masculine territory, going off to war and adventure!  I will say if you have as much fun reading it as I had writing it, you will be in a blissful state beyond words for the duration!

Just One Of The Boys: Gender and the Modern Girl

Buy it on Amazon!

Although I mostly review books that explore gender through body swaps and magical changes, I also find it fascinating when authors explore gender through the roles a character plays and the ways society treats them.  Such is the case with teen age Alice Bell, who loved hockey more than anything and hopes to keep playing by joining the all-boy’s Chicago Falcons, where the level of play is high enough that professional scouts regularly visit to look for professional prospects.

Through a k-drama series of events, she ends up joining the team as a boy named Al.

Having dedicated her life to the sport, Alice wants to play with and against the best, to have a chance to prove herself.   In the world of hockey, her identity trends pretty much dude, with her concerns being sports, eating whole pizzas and winning.   She barely even sees the other players as having any sexual identity, other than the star player Hayden Trembley, who much to her horror she finds herself crushing on.

Now, where this story gets interesting and I feel reflects the reality of many women today, young and not so young, is how embarrassed she feels whenever she feels or is forced to act in traditionally feminine.  In addition to her hockey, for example, her mother insists she participate in some figure skating, and she hates the dresses and the make-up, wondering what her hockey playing team mates would think if they saw her in a sparkly little dress and fake eyelashes.

She relates to Trembley dude to dude, repressing her romantic feelings because, yes, she is pretending to be a boy, but also because he is her team mate, and she feels that getting close to him romantically would be bad for the team, and also, I feel, because since her relationship with him is based on her being a dude, she worries what will happen if she acts or looks feminine.  In fact, she has to work to hide her femininity: the way she sits, talks and uses her hands.

It’s all good fun, but I also feel reflects the lives of contemporary girls who shift and morph from competing as athletes to getting all dolled up for the home coming dance, or who pretty much dress like dudes most of the time– hoodies and jeans and sneakers– but then feel the need to dress “girly” for certain occasions, or maybe when they want to get the attention of certain guys.

This story deals with all that, and it even offers a resolution, though I won’t what.  It is also at heart a very modern rom com, and a fun read.  Check it out!
