Light and Shadow and other things
For my readers who have checked out my m/m romance stories, both Scar Tissue ~
check out some cool stuff on Scar Tissue here:
and A Pharaoh’s Promise (find it here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15703643-a-pharaoh-s-promise), a new novella is due out at the end of the year. Light and Shadow will be out by the end of December, again published by Seventh Window Publications, Thanks! Ken! It is my second novella with Seventh Window, and I am so excited to see it come to fruition. It started out as a story about an abandoned lighthouse, then blossomed into a romance about the Lighthouse being renovated and the owner, a self described recluse, finding love of another kind, in the form of an artist visiting the small coastal town. The Oregon coast, where this story takes place, is a part of the U.S. that is steeped in Coast Guard lore, lighthouse ghosts, and romantic wind swept beaches. This story takes place in a small coastal village with an abandoned and neglected lighthouse. The lighthouse is purchased by a slightly jaded, and disillusioned, architect from Los Angeles, looking for a new start. He finds what he is looking for in the lighthouse ~ and in a tourist, who is also looking for a fresh perspective.
Fresh perspectives are something I have been looking for myself for a while now. This year I have written, A Pharaoh’s Promise, Target Acquired, Light and Shadow, as well as a f/f fantasy, Shieldmaiden. Shieldmaiden is the story about a young Lady in Waiting that discovers her true calling when she makes a pilgrimage to her ancestral home located in the Orkney Islands. Her destiny, joined to the dragons that rule the skies over Scotland, finds her leading a small band of clansman to fight the invading Norsemen. Her love for her Princess, tempts her to give up her true self and follow the Princess into a quite life of Keeps and inner court trivial pursuits. Her decision ~ to stay and claim her birthright, or go home with the Princess ~ will affect the future of Briton. Love or Country?
I continue to write the Haiku that drives a sensual mind, and I hope that all my readers continue to enjoy, or otherwise feel moved by my work. It is not always a happy or uplifting thought I wish to evoke. Sometimes, the pain or angst that a piece evokes in a reader is more powerful than a pocketful of posies.
Until we meet again, be of sound mind and clear thought…
