Magical talking dog romcom Love Potion Commotion! turns FIVE today! What’s that in dog years, again?
I CAN’T WAIT for fall treats and temperatures! But it’s still 90-degrees plus outside (where I live, anyway), so I’m kicking off Spooky Season as usual by reading scary stories and games (well, Luigi’s Mansion 3. Close enough!).
If you like doing the same, check out my latest short story, Bad Tidings from Queen Sophie. It was made into an audio production back in December 2021 by the NoSleep Podcast (Season 17, episode 6), but this is its first release in paperback and ebook!
When her beloved kitty Queen Sophie starts acting odd, Cass turns to a mysterious app to bridge the communication gap.
But she soon discovers that no mews is good news…
BAD TIDINGS FROM QUEEN SOPHIE is a quick fright perfect for any animal lover who’s ever wondered what their pet is trying to tell them.

If you’re looking for scares that unnerve instead of nauseate, look no further. Horror stories from Danielle Williams lean towards slow-burn scares and the unsettling. If you take your creeps with a PG-13 sensibility—think THE SIXTH SENSE, THE OUTER LIMITS, or classic TWILIGHT ZONE—this is a story for you.
Eerie ASMR-inspired horror story Chrystine’s Sleep Solution turns ONE today. Whoa! I’m really proud of this story–and not just ‘cuz it made it onto the front page of a neat Books2Read promo. I just think it’s spooky. 😯!
Happy book birthday to A Gingersnap Cat Christmas, my answer to Highway to Heaven (but with more talking animals). Released back in 2018, Gingersnap was the first paperback I ever produced!
Happy book birthday to the first ebook I ever published, Out Where the Sun Always Shines, released this day in 2011.
Being a noir love story, you don’t fit into any of the sci-fi/fantasy categories I settled upon after deciding to make writing my career. But I’m still proud of you! And you DID get a book trailer!
The Pixelvania Publishing Proclamation o’ Progress is a semiannual post detailing what’s going on around here, and what might show up in the future. It also includes reviews of shows, books, games, products, etc. you may also like. It’s only posted twice a year so as not to clog up your valuable, beautiful brain space.
Cute kitty photos at the end.
Here’s what’s been published since last post:
This kitty-with-talking-buttons horror story (previously heard on the NoSleep Podcast) will be released very soon! Dig this minimalist cover!: Read More …
Inflation’s biting everyone in the butt lately and I wanted to do something about it. So I grabbed 3 of my fave fantasy stories, chopped the price, and released ’em in this collection I’m calling WOMEN OF WONDER. Check out that shiny shiny book cover below!
This collection contains the following previously-published stories:
THE CAPRAMANCER NEXT DOOR – Down-to-earth mage Will Schafer has her hands full moving into a new house while keeping her mischievous herd of magical goats in line. Meeting handsome gardener Rickert Nash takes the sting out of moving…until his shadowy past comes roaring back to bite him in the butt. Now Will and the herd must step in to save their neighbor from getting mulched—but can a girl and her goats defeat a formidable hunter, or are they all about to buy the farm?
THE WITCHING LICENSE – Mavis Burnsides is on her deathbed when her best friend brings her a Witching License. Now she’s got magical powers—and one last night to make up for a lifetime of regrets. By turns sassy and touching, The Witching License is a gentle tale of regret, romance, and righting wrongs.
DEBUTS AND DRAGONS – Though she’s not much to look at, dragon Sellafield Terrormouth never worried about snagging a mate for herself. But now that her little sister is about to debut in dragon society, Sella’s got one night to go from drab to fab. If she fails, she’ll lose her entire dowry—and quite possibly doom herself to eternal spinsterhood! Can this plain dragon get herself a date, or is her future about to go up in flames?
By buying this collection, you save, like, 70% versus buying each ebook separately. So I hope that helps with your budget a little!
