If you remember, I was in the Writer’s Unite anthology awhile back but under a different publisher. I’m not sure what became of that publisher but the Writer’s Unite! team is at it again with a new publisher and two volumes of fantasy short stories. I’m in the first one with the same story (that was published with the previous publisher). There have been minor revisions/editing to my story but it’s still the same theme and magic and all the wonderful things you’ll find in a fantasy story.
The ebook will be released on December 15, 2021, but you can preorder on December 1, 2021.
I had a little hiccup which led to some of the apps delivering the ebook on April 2nd. I really enjoyed writing this story and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it. The other day, when the snow began falling gently where I live (before the snowstorm), it reminded me of the scene in the story when the first snow fell on the rain planet. It only snows every 25 years so it’s always a special event. I’m glad we have winters here. When the earth is covered in a blanket of white, it’s really breathtaking.
With all that’s going on with COVID-19, I’m offering my short story ebook, The King’s Prisoner, for free on Amazon until March 22. If you need something to keep you company, let this story take you away for a short while. Click here or click the image below to download. This is the new ebook cover. You can still find the previous cover under paperback (which is not part of this free offer).
During NaNoWriMo I will typically follow a word count calendar. It helps me stay on track. Word count is approximately 2K per day for 30 days. Normally, I would search the web or Pinterest for someone else’s calendar. This year, I decided to put one together. I used the NaNo calendar and added the word count per day to it.
If you’d like to use the original calendar, you can download it off the NaNo site here: NaNo Prep 101 Course. It’s a PDF file and will be on page 50.
I’ve been slacking off prep so I need to really kick it up. Instead, I’m brainstorming ideas for a couple of short stories and novelettes I hope to publish before the end of the year and early 2020. One of them being Shaman 2.
The contract with the Writer’s Unite! Anthology ended in August of this year. I decided to go ahead and publish my short story on Amazon. It’s free on Kindle Unlimited.
This story is powerful. I did some re-editing and got pretty emotional reading it again. It’s about trust and taking chances. It’s about people’s hearts and emotions. And, it’s about love…but not the kind you’d think.
