Wayward Magic on the Loose

Hi Readers, We’re back. This week, our Scribe, Melinda, put together the final file for Wayward Magic, the second anthology in the trilogy of fantasy anthologies, collectively called Magic Underground. She just sent that file to the formater! Yay! What’s Wayward Magic about? Well, it contains within its magical pages another story about Thing and his mate, Amal. You guessed it. They’re in trouble again. (No surprise there. His Orneriness excels at getting in trouble.) But this time, not just their friend’s life is at stake but his soul too when dark magic infects him with its evil. Thing and … Continue reading Wayward Magic on the Loose

No Accounting for Characters

Well, another week is almost over.1. I learned how to send author copies from Amazon to other authors. I didn’t know I could do that.2. I wrote scenes for: Curse Breaker: Hidden (Curse Breaker, Book 6) Rogue Rescue (Robin of Larkspur, book 4) Rogue Gift (Robin of Larkspur, book 5) Storm of Spells (Curse Breaker’s Companion, Book 1) Robin is annoyed at me because I didn’t work on book 3, Rogue Ranger. That book has to come out before books 4 & 5, and I get that. But books 4, 5 & 6 of her series tie directly into Curse … Continue reading No Accounting for Characters

It’s Done!

Finished! It didn’t end where I wanted it to. The characters didn’t do what I wanted them to do either. I like where this story went. I’m just annoyed I can’t follow it up with the story I wanted to tell because they didn’t set that one up. No, I have to finish what they started in this one then build the next conflict. 😬 I’m certain they planned it that way just to get a couple more sequels than I’d planned. The nerve of those characters. Get “Spell of Scales & Steel” in the anthology, Forgotten Magic. Go to … Continue reading It’s Done!

Would you give us some stars?

Hi Readers! It’s your friendly fictional character, Ran, Sarn’s son, and I’m back with good news. Melinda is finishing up Spell of Scales & Steel for the Forgotten Magic Anthology today then moving onto Curse Breaker: Hidden! You can’t see it, but I’m holding a list of demands for that book in my hot little hands. Since the next big story arc in the Curse Breaker series is all about me, I stand a good chance of getting all my demands met. 🙂 Papa might not enjoy that experience, but he needs to broaden his horizons. I also have review … Continue reading Would you give us some stars?

Hi Readers! As the image below shows, we’ve been busy! The three *test* covers are for the three stories our scribe, Melinda, wrote for the trilogy of anthologies we’re producing.

If they fail, they’ll lose more than their only human friend. Adventure with Thing and Amal as they risk it all.

Story Blues and a New Cover Too

Hi Readers! We have good news! Hunter’s Night has a new cover that better matches the rest of the series. If you already have a copy of the ebook, just ask Amazon to update your copy with the new cover. The paperback doesn’t have the new cover yet because the designer is still working on it. We expect to have that by the end of next week. Second, Hidden Magic is at the formatter! It’s coming soon! But there might not be 22 stories in it. 😦 One of the authors messaged our Scribe to say she can’t contribute to … Continue reading Story Blues and a New Cover Too

This is Magical Mayhem

Hi Readers, Before we jump back into today’s adventure, I just wanted to give you a quick status update. Our Scribe has been hard at work on a trilogy of anthologies collectively called Magic Underground. They’re published by the only press that’s run by fictional characters–Magical Mayhem Press. If you guessed that I (Ran, Sarn’s son and sidekick) and the cast of Melinda’s books are part of the staff there, then you’re correct. Magical Mayhem Press publishes exactly what you think it does: books chock full of magic and mayhem because that’s how we roll. It’s the only character-run press … Continue reading This is Magical Mayhem

The Adventure Continues (Finally)

Hi Readers, I think it’s just us now. I sent everyone away. (This is Ran, by the way, your official newsletter host. I’m the son of Sarn, the curse breaker in the Curse Breaker books.) Since this newsletter is character-run, other characters drop in from time to time, but this newsletter is *mine!* It’s also a spoiler-free zone. At least, it’s supposed to be. That’s why I sent everyone else away. I paused with my finger hovering over the screen as a voice interrupted my musings. “What are you doing under here?” Papa lifted the blanket that formed my comfy … Continue reading The Adventure Continues (Finally)

Help An Author Recover from a Devastating Fire

Let’s sweeten the pot a little. Mirren Hogan needs all the help she can get in this trying time. I’ll toss in the sequel to Hunter’s Night if we get this over $20. If this goes to $25, I’ll add in Curse Breaker: Darkens. If this hits $30, I’ll add in His Angelic Keeper. If this goes to $40, I’ll swap out Enchanted & Darkens for a copy of Curse Breaker: Books 1-4 If this goes to $60, I’ll add Curse Breaker: Sundered If this goes to $70, I’ll add an advanced copy of Hidden Magic as soon as it’s … Continue reading Help An Author Recover from a Devastating Fire
