Saturday Sneak Peeks: March Short Story

Designed by Kathryn Jenkins at Magical Designs

 

As promised, this week I have a sneak peek from my March short story. It’s a new genre for me, so I’m a bit nervous about it, but also excited at the same time. It’s with the editor now and will be ready for its 15th of March release.

My only problem is I haven’t been able to decide on a title and I would love some feedback on the cover as well, so I put together a poll and would love to here from you.

Help me Give my Story a Title and Cover!


Rylee had been feeling as though she had woken in an alternate reality lately. People walked the streets like zombies, with their blank, emotionless expressions. Every morning she followed the same routine, and nothing seemed to change.

“Good morning,” she said to a passerby.

The woman looked at her as though she was trying to figure out if someone had actually spoken to her, then walked off.

“People are so rude,” Rylee said under her breath.

She lifted her pastry to take another bite. Even the food hadn’t been the same. Almost tasteless. She couldn’t even seem to smell anything. Had the world always been this way, and she didn’t notice? She hoped she wasn’t getting sick. Just as the pastry touched her lips, someone grabbed her arm and pulled her into the alleyway.

Rylee opened her mouth to scream, but a gloved hand muffled the sound.

“Be quiet. There are listeners everywhere. You’re in danger, but I’m here to help,” a woman said.

Rylee turned to face the woman as soon as she released her. “Danger? What do you mean? Wait! What’s a listener? Who are you?”

WIP Wednesday: More Changes!

Don’t you just love the new year?

I do… it’s when I make a lot of changes and everything feels so fresh and new. It’s very stimulating and motivating. One of the biggest changes I’ve made is to my writing schedule. I get too bored if I’m only working on one project at a time, and it actually causes me to get less done. So, I’ve decided I need to go back to working on multiple projects like I used to.

Starting this week, I’m focusing on writing one serial chapter a day (well, on my writing days), and I’m working on my novel planning for the A God’s Deception series.

I’m also going to try and stagger it so I’m in different stages with each project I’m working on. I don’t want to be editing two things at once. That will just get crazy (especially since editing is so monotonous).

I’ve also decided that since the popularity of my serial is up, I’m going to start publishing individual episodes of Shadow Stalker on Amazon, Smashwords and other retail outlets again. Yay!!!

Here is the release schedule for those:

  • 5 April – Epsiode 19
  • 3 May – Episode 20
  • 7 June – Episode 21
  • 5 July – Episode 22
  • 2 August – Episode 23
  • 6 September – Episode 24

And, of course, for those who prefer to wait for the bundle, that will be released on the 22nd of November this year.

I’m also aiming to write a release a short story each month. We’ll see how that goes. I just miss writing short stories. They’re so much fun to write, and I want my readers to have something new from me more often. I’m hoping to have the first one released by the end of March, but I haven’t worked out a schedule for those yet. I’ll let you know!

In the meantime, don’t forget you can now get Shadow Stalker Parts 1 & 2 free if you haven’t read those yet.

WIP Wednesday: It’s a New Year!

This is my first works in progress update of 2017! WOO HOO! 😀

First, I just want to say thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout 2016. It was a great year, all things considered, and I’m hoping this year will be even better.

For the rest of this month, I’ll be focusing on getting Shadow Stalker Part 4 written. If you would like the individual episodes of this free as I release them, sign up below. Otherwise, I sell them here for $0.75 each.

Speaking of which, now that I’m writing Part 4, this is a good time for you to get caught up in your reading. Shadow Stalker Part 1 is a free download for everyone. You can get Part 2 free as well by signing up below or you can purchase it here. Shadow Stalker Part 3 was released just last month as well, so that’s 18 episodes you need to get caught up on!
