#RainbowSnippets #novellines Forty-Five 5/5: Nosy Neighbor

First off, Bella Books is having an ebook sale this weekend that includes three titles from my award-winning Sisters series (FF Sci-Fi) so go snatch some good deals before their gone. BELLA BOOK’S EXPLORE NEW WORLDS SALE.

Second, welcome to this week’s installment of Rainbowsnippets*! This one is uniquely mine, but there are lots of other great snippets to read, so after you finish here click the FB link at the bottom of the post to discover other great LGBTQIA authors and their works.

I’m sharing from Cleaning House, one of my current WIPs, again. Cleaning House is nearing the end of the WIP status. It’s set for an August 1 release, and it’s currently off in the fair land of proofreading, soon to return so it can be formatted and made pretty for its debut. (good grief, that sounded regrettably old south. Debutant ball anyone? Eww. *grimaces and shudders*)

I’m going to be looking for ARC reviewers in the very near future. If you’re interested, let me know.

The Setup: That messenger at Cent’s door has asked if she needs anything else… wonder what she says. Let’s find out, shall we?

Happy Friday! Why not celebrate the upcoming weekend with some great reads at an even better price?

#1lineWed #amwriting #WIP Grand

Here’s another short-‘n-sweet #1lineWed post. The theme is grand.

The house was perched on the last road up the mountain, a good distance from the top, but still high enough to offer a grand view of the river-flat below.

#WIPpet Wednesday #QueerBlogWed 5/2/18: Hunter Fae

I’m working on promo for the upcoming release of Cleaning House. The first box I checked off? A book launch party/ book signing event at a local venue. Yay! I’ll post more on that as the release date approaches, but it looks like it’s going to be loads of fun regardless of the turnout. (crosses her fingers for a good turnout)

It’s Wednesday again, which means it’s time for #WIPpet Wednesday** and #QueerBlogWed*! While WIPpet Wednesday, hosted by the gracious Emily Wrayburn, features a diverse mix of authors, #QueerBlogWed is geared for, well, queer blogs, which this site certainly is.

This week I’m sharing another sample from Cleaning House, an Appalachian Contemporary Fantasy, and the first installment in my Appalachian Elementals series.

Here’s my WIPpet math: 5/2/2018:  8+5+2+2-1= 16 paragraphs from Cleaning House (a longer WIPpet, but it’s all good, until the Hunters arrive).

     “Ready to learn a bit more?” Tess indicated the lights flickering around them. “Thems not lightning bugs.”

#RainbowSnippets #novellines Forty-Four 4/28 The Messenger

Welcome to this week’s installment of Rainbowsnippets*! This one is uniquely mine, but there are lots of other great snippets to read, so after you finish here click the FB link at the bottom of the post to discover other great LGBTQIA authors and their works.

I’m sharing from Cleaning House, one of my current WIPs, again. Cleaning House is nearing the end of the WIP status. It’s set for an August 1 release, and it’s currently off in the fair land of proofreading, in very good hands, I might add. *waves to her manuscript* See you soon!

I’m going to be looking for ARC reviewers in the near future. If you’re interested, let me know.

The Setup: That messenger at Cent’s door is unusual in a very good way. Here’s a little more of what happens during their brief encounter. Yes, this is more than six sentences, but I generally play by the rules, at least in theory. 😉

#WIPpet Wednesday #QueerBlogWed 4/25/18: Mischief-Making

Oh, what to label a book. Hey, the choice can be difficult. It shouldn’t be, but it is. I’ve debated where to place Cleaning House for a while, and yesterday, it rather came to a head. We’ve got the choose those labels I hate, and I agonized all day as to where the place the novel. Fantasy for certain. Contemporary Fantasy? Yep, it goes there. We’re even going to place it under the category of Paranormal Fantasy, because – witches, haints and spirits and black masses and…
