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?

The First Reveal!

The release of the final book in The Shattered Isles series is only a few weeks away!  I am busily writing away, discovering scenes and moments in the lives of Serren, Pattenia and the whole cast of characters.  While I have steadfastly resisted numerous calls for spoilers from my devoted readers, I have decided to share a few little things in the weeks leading up to the release of the third book, beginning tonight with the cover and title!

I would love to know your thoughts about the title and cover!  Let me know what you think.  Now, let me get back to Serren who was just about to…  ooops!  Almost gave one away there!

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!

Starting Over.

Brother Bewitched

So, I had over 20,000 words hacked out on Brother Bewildered, and although I sort of liked some of the scenes, overall I felt that what I had was just wrong.  I didn’t like the opening, and since everything was flowing from that opening, it felt like I had set course for Wrong and unless I went back and started over, I would have no chance to get to Right.

That maybe makes no sense.  One thing about me is that I usually just write, write and write some more.  Then, for the passion projects like Brother Bewitched, I go back and rework things.  The initial draft of Brother Bewitched, for example, was 60,000 words.  After getting feedback from some beta readers, I cut 10,000 words and then added 40,000 words, creating a final manuscript I felt good about.

So, part of me said– just keep writing.  But I couldn’t.  It was all wrong, and I did not feel it could be fixed.  So, I started over.  I created a new document and stared at a new blank page, and I began to write again, putting aside me regret at those lost 20,000 words, at all that work.  I just started at zero, because I felt I had to do so.

It’s hard not to feel those 20,000 words amount to a tremendous waste of time.  But, they really weren’t.  I write mainly because I love writing, and the publishing side is almost a second hobby.   But I was immersed in my story, and feeling good about it and about life as I was writing, and those hours of enjoyment were real, and they happened, and that’s all great.  In addition, I learned a bit from those 20,000 words, and the new version is better because I spent that time and found a wrong way.  I say a wrong way because there isn’t just one.

Now, I am writing away, enjoying the experiencing, and my characters are surprising me as they decide to go different directions than what I had planned, to pursue different dreams, and the whole thing is unfolding and it’s like I am reading it as I am writing it– or maybe watching a movie version which I am transcribing.  I am very lucky to have a wild imagination, and especially at my age where I feel many of my peers have calcified minds.  My imagination is not only vibrant but out of control, and I have to reign it in sometimes just to stay in touch with reality.

Anyway, just wanted to post an update. Now, I need to get back to The Shattered Isles, where Serren finds himself attending yet another baby shower while Pattenia marches off to war.

If you haven’t read it yet, check out Brother Bewitched to find out how Prince Serren found himself trapped in dresses while his sister seized the crown!
