This year’s transition to autumn is being just divine in Southern Ontario with cooling days and the upswing to being busier with just about everything. The fall is looking to be quite amazing, especially for long contemplative nature walks to ruminate on plot outlines for books and ideas for PaperieArtemisia, my Zazzle shop. I hope your fall is getting underway too in the best way and filled to the brim with all things harvest!
As an indie self-pub writer I’ve been thinking about the best platform for me to publish my upcoming works. I’d hoped to open my own website and sell direct this year but have decided that since I’m not really established I don’t want to go it alone just yet and decided to stay with support to help in distribution. Being Indie is awesome but it also means we have to think about all the marketing and sales stuff to get our work out there and get known.
On the writing side of it, I’m really happy to be publishing Cursed Ice Prince, on sale October 28! Every winter I see the Christmas fractured fairy tales come out and from yearning to have my own tale, the story of Kai and Anyu was born. What if Kai and the Snow Queen really liked each other; I mean Really liked each other?
Check out the blurb!
Anyu has been alone since the beginning and yearns to know the passionate love of a human mortal. But they die instantly at her first kiss.
In a terrible accident, evil hobgoblin Rhaznomr’s enchanted mirror has splintered over the entire world, its dark slivers infecting mankind with evil magic.
Perhaps this black magic can shield a human male enough for them to withstand Anyu’s frigid affection and not die from it. Anyu’s trail of frozen dead loves comes to a startling conclusion with Kai who is infected with the dark enchantments and who she enthralls with the mystery of the evil, splintered mirror.
Cursed magic will exact a price and Kai’s world changes profoundly ~ will his growing love for the Sovereign of Snow survive his own magical metamorphosis to Ice Prince Consort? Anyu is determined to keep Kai even if she must enlist the aid of the wicked Rhaznomr himself.
A novella rich in the legends and lore of winter.
Clean mythic fantasy romance (though not suitable for minors).
Now available for pre-sale orders at Smashwords.
