The fate of the Kitty Christmas Story…

The good news is: the content’s finished (almost made it to 40K!), it’s in my proofreader’s hands, and the story’s cute!

The bad news: I missed my Christmas deadline (obviously)!

But that’s OK. As soon as it’s ready, it will be posted here for your reading pleasure (even if you don’t get to it ’til Christmas 2018!).

Thanks for sticking with me, folks!

Currently on the docket: Frenchies 2, Nosferatu Novel, SCVK edits.

20K words reached on new kitty Christmas story!

A Gingersnap Cat Christmas has hit 20,000 words and is still going! (I’m still in the process of typing up what I’ve hand-written.) I didn’t achieve my Thanksgiving goal, but now I’m curious to see how long it ends up!

My plan is to type up what I have, fill in a couple of missing scenes, make a cover while the typos get checked, and…well, hopefully publish it before Christmas! Whew!

10K Words reached in new kitty Christmas story!

Whoo! My latest story, A Gingersnap Cat Christmas, just hit 10,000 words! Since I want it finished by Thanksgiving, I’ve been trying to write on it even on days when I’m Not Feeling It™. So far, it’s working! Even on my argleblargle days I’m managing between 700-1400 words an hour. Stay tuned to see if I manage this audacious goal!

New! WHAT THE CAT BROUGHT BACK, a perfect short for Halloween

What the Cat Brought Back (Cover). A terrified cat looks on at something we can't see; grungy text appears over him. A red rip in the image contains the title.

And in a complete mood swing from the last release, we have What the Cat Brought Back. It’s a novelette (think: longer short story) perfect for Halloween reading.

Writing this, I was surprised by the tender friendship between the two women, Katheryn and Mallory. I mean, it’s still a horror story, but there’s some light in the bleakness.

You can…

And please remember, reviews are always welcome!

Now Out: LOVE POTION COMMOTION!

Love Potion Commotion! (Cover). A white French bulldog winks at the viewer over a cauldron that bubbles pink smoke. Behind him, a brindle Frenchi looks on suspiciously.My new feel-good ebook, LOVE POTION COMMOTION, is out! YAAY! *Kermit flail*

I’m really excited for you to meet Vivian Feng, a witch, and her Frenchie familiars, Marty and Leggo. If you love funny feel-good movies (with a light touch of romance), you’re gonna enjoy this novella.

You can read an excerpt here at Pixelvania Publishing, buy it for your Kindle on Amazon.com, or buy it elsewhere (BN, Kobo, etc.) at Books2Read.com. If the store you want isn’t up yet on B2R, just  wait; it will populate within the next few days as the different stores accept it into their system.

Enjoy, everyone!

What could he be looking at?

Coming next week: Magic Fashion Frenchies #1: LOVE POTION COMMOTION! A new family fantasy romance comedy…which is a really long-winded and non-trademark-infringing way to say “This novella’s like a Hallmark movie, but with better special effects.”

I think you’re really going to love meeting Vivian Feng and her family–two-legged and four-legged members alike! I look forward to sharing this story with you soon! Sign up for the newsletter to be the first to find out when it’s released!

Coming soon: a new PG-13 horror story

Happy to announce that my latest novelette, WHAT THE CAT BROUGHT BACK, is finished and ready to be sent off to my proofreaders!

What’s it about? Well, you know those hoarder cats who bring their owners back random “treasures” they’ve stolen? In What the Cat Brought Back, a woman’s pet cat begins bringing her disturbing, otherworldly objects.

And that’s just the start…

It’s disturbing, atmospheric, and going to be released in time for Halloween reading! More news will be posted here as things proceed. And, as always, you can sign up for my free writing newsletter to be the first to know when it’s released!

Have a happy Monday!
