I am so happy that today is the release of my fantasy novella Port Stone: Dangers of the Swamp! I am so excited to be writing more fantasy and there will be two more Port Stone novellas out by fall of this year! If you like strong female characters or classic fantasy, Port Stone is the series for you! Book 1 is only .99 cents for the ebook!
Tianna and Kara each came to Port Stone by request of their respective Orders to help an unknown elf, Phinelope. She never shows at the appointed meeting place, so they go in search of her only to find Phinelope murdered and more secrets than answers in this strange town. Never ones to let the murder of a woman go with no consequences, they take it upon themselves to avenge her death and find themselves becoming more involved in the mysteries of Port Stone than either of them ever intended.
Join Tianna and Kara in this female led fantasy of danger, lies, and unanswered questions.
Here’s a little excerpt:
A quick perusal of the pub showed that Phinelope had not yet arrived. In fact, no women were in the place other than the serving girl. As expected, everyone stared despite her hood being up. The serving wench came over and reluctantly took her order, walking away before Tianna had a chance to ask about Phinelope. The wench returned with her drink, dumped it on the table, grabbed the coin, and said nothing. Tianna felt that elves really were not received well here in Port Stone, though she had no idea why. In towns and villages, her kind were always treated with respect. Why were things so different here in this city? Deciding that it didn’t matter, she let her hood down, her dark green eyes flashing at those who stared even more openly at her.
Before she could ponder for too long, the door opened and another female came in. A tall, redheaded and striking human woman looked around, her blue eyes squinting to see in the dimness. She, too, stood out being all in armor and carrying a large Warhammer. Tianna immediately felt a kinship to this newcomer. She spotted Tianna and headed towards her. “Phinelope?” she asked.
“No, my name is Tianna, I had hoped that you were Phinelope, though I had assumed she, too, to be an elf. I am here to meet her as well. Please, sit, we can wait together.” Glad to have company that didn’t seem to stare at her with distrust just because of her race.
Nodding, the human sat, extending her hand, “My name is Kara, the priest to whom I owe my life sent me here to meet an elf named Phinelope and to help her in whatever mission she had.”
“An Elder of my Order gave me very similar commands but not many details. How very strange.”
“Indeed. This must be something important if the Druids and the Clerics are both involved. Who exactly is this Phinelope?” Kara asked as she signaled for an ale to the passing server.
I am so happy to say that my fantasy novella, Port Stone: Dangers of the Swamp is now available for preorder for only .99 cents! It will be out April 20th and I am so ready for this book to go out in the world. I am already working on the sequel which should be out in July and the third and final Port Stone book will come out in October. Want a little taste?

I am so excited to be able to share the cover reveal for my upcoming fantasy novella Port Stone: Dangers of the Swamp! I am in the middle of edits for this novella and hope to have not only a release date but a preorder link available soon! I just couldn't wait to share this cover though! I am so proud of this novella, which will be a three part series, that has strong female warriors in a fantasy setting. I plan to have the two sequels both out later this year, I am about 5000 words into book two right now. The cover artist for this cover is Lillian Rose Asterois and you can find her at: https://www.facebook.com/lillianscovers/.
As the second month of 2019 gets underway, I am getting pretty focused on my writing and art. I have already written several short stories and am going to keep looking out for some more submission calls, but now it is time to focus on longer pieces. And most of those pieces are going to be in the fantasy genre! I actually just sent a short fantasy novella off to my editor and have a cover artist working on the cover as we speak, so I am hoping to have it out by March! I am now working on outlining a four book fantasy series that I am so excited to get out in the world! These will be novels and might be the biggest undertaking that I have ever had as an author. I am also working on the sequel to my romantic fantasy Quest for Redemption, Quest for Self! So I am going to be writing a lot about elves, dragons and more the rest of the year!
With my writing life centered around fantasy for the year, it got me thinking that maybe I can bring my art into that realm as well. So the rest of the year I think that most of my art is also going to focus on dragons, elves and fantasy. I might even combine both the writing and art for a fantasy based solo art show next year! I'm going to be pretty busy the rest of the year!
Ebooks make great gifts and you don't have to leave your house to shop or send them!
