I need to get my office cleaned. I moved it into a room upstairs like eight months ago now, and it's still a mess. It's just hard to pick a place to start because where do I begin? I should probably make myself do fifteen minutes on it a day or something. I don't even have to finish anything that way, just get fifteen minutes worth of work done. Boom. You'd think that would do it, wouldn't you? Eventually? Or at least make it seem less like I'll never get it done so why start. We'll see.
I have a story in the 7 & 7 sci-fi and fantasy anthology from DSP Publications. This is a free book, currently available for pre-order. It's release date is May 10.
Humankind possesses a dual nature, the ability to rise to the brightest heights—or sink to the darkest and most perverse depths.
What inspires some to reach the pinnacles of virtue while others cannot resist the temptations of vice? Is it something innate, or a result of destiny and circumstance?
Delve into the minds and spirits of saints and sinners alike with a collection of stories that explore the call toward good or evil—and the consequences of answering it. For while rewards certainly await the righteous, there are also pleasures to be found in the darkness. Venture off the expected path with some of the most innovative voices in LGBT speculative fiction as they present their unique takes on the classic vices and virtues.
DSP Publications has also taken on my Windbrothers book. They are republishing the first one and I am writing the rest of the saga that I'd always wanted to write. The first 3/4 of the first book is now Windbrothers: Desert and.the last 1/4 of the original book will be about 1/3 of book two - everything else will be new material. Book 2 will be Forest, and then there will be Plains and finally Mountain. I'm so pleased to be resurrecting this world. Windbrothers: Desert is available for pre-order and will be out on May 24. And it's got a great new cover on it :)
Banished from his homeland, Surial is sent to Azize to run the family business. When he wins a slave, Kade, in a dog race, Surial is unsure what to do with him, as he doesn’t believe in slavery. Kade’s way with horses leads to him being relegated to the stables, where Surial becomes drawn to the big, quiet man.
A proud warrior at heart, Kade has been a slave for too long, and when he is passed to yet another owner, he goes without a fight, no hope left in him. When he discovers Surial’s secret, a fragile friendship blossoms between the unlikely master and the unwilling slave as Kade shows Surial that what lies within him is not a curse but a gift.
In a world of magic, Surial and Kade face their fears and hopes amid dangers that threaten both of them as their friendship is put to the test. What lies at the end of their trials is something more precious than either of them has ever dreamed of.
It's currently 25% off, but that will only last until the end of today. You can get it here.
Okay, I need to either get some work done or go lie in the lovely breezes and sleep.
Have a great Sunday!
