PLANTWISE releases Thursday, June 15. You can download the ebook and audiobook here on the site NOW at a discount price before the official release day. I’m also offering a pre-release order discount on the print book, but you’ll have to wait until I actually have the books in my hot little hands before I can ship them off to you to enjoy!

PLANTWISE is the current book being read on the Ye Olde Dragon’s Library storytelling podcast, which you can listen to right here on the site. Just click on the podcast link. If you’re enjoying the story, you don’t have to wait for each episode to get your next chapter — download the ebook and audiobook TODAY and start enjoying it!

LIARS’ QUEST, which was the previous story being read to you on the podcast, will be available, revised and polished, on Friday, June 30. That’s 23 days from now. From June 16 until the 30th, you can pre-order the book (and by that, I mean pre-order the print book, at a DISCOUNT) or immediately download the ebook (also at a discount). The audiobook is being prepared right now and should be ready for downloading by next week, right after the release of PLANTWISE.

What’s it about?

Daniel Morgan’s past returns to haunt him when a freshman girl shows up for class wearing his college sweetheart’s face.

Lynette Tyler is determined not to face her past, even when she learns her daughter’s favorite new teacher is the man she had forced out of her life when she got pregnant.

When Daniel learns that Kat is his daughter, he dares to ask God for the dream he had let go years before… to finally be a family. He pursues Lynette’s love through tragedy and shame, learning to forgive each other and themselves. The biggest hurdle isn’t whether Kat would forgive them when she finally finds out the truth, but whether Lynette can let go of the past long enough to let them have a future together.

Liars’ Quest — in print soon. Interested?

This is the current cover for LIARS’ QUEST that is appearing in the updates on Goodreads.

Good news: this is NOT the actual cover. It’s more a placeholder.

We’re working on the splendiferous cover, because …. (drum roll, please!) we plan to have the print and ebook version of what you’ve been listening to on the podcast ready for sale at the start of June, when the podcast finishes.

(You have been listening to the podcast episodes, haven’t you? If not, just click on the link to the podcast page above, and catch up!)

Interested in pre-ordering your own copy, and maybe saving a few $$$ ????? Email us to get your name on the list when all details are finalized.

Ready to DREAM?

Our next Fairytale Anthology, PERCHANCE TO DREAM, is just a few steps away from publication.

It releases on May 1. We’ll be uploading the print and ebook for pre-release sales on April 1.

Isn’t that cover gorgeous? Kaitlyn Emery does a great job every time!

All the stories take elements of Sleeping Beauty and turn the whole thing around. Some are lovely fairy tales, some are silly, some are fantasy, some are science fiction, some are heartbreaking, some take us back to places we’ve visited in other anthologies, and some are kind of scary ….

Here is a list of the authors and their titles, just to whet your appetite for what’s coming!

Can We Talk?

Writing books often feels like a one-way communication — I tell stories and you listen.

Well …. I’d like a chance to listen to you. Find out what you like. Find out what you prefer. Find out what interests you. Find out what podcast apps you listen to, and what reading apps you use. And what ones you avoid like a political poll-taker …

Please consider signing up for my newsletter, so when I ask a question or two with each newsletter, you can respond and we can get some conversations going.

If you go to my — and click on one of the links to get a FREE ebook download, you will be signed up for my newsletter. Yeah, that easy.

(And for those of you who already are on my newsletter list, please be on the lookout for those questions. And remember: I usually offer a free download of something every other newsletter ……..)

Then, when you respond to my questions each month, and maybe more than once a month if a good conversation gets going, I’ll keep a tally of your answers, and the names and emails of who responds … and that way I can make like a Hobbit, and send YOU something fun when special occasions arise.

Why “make like a Hobbit”? Well, on their birthdays, Hobbits GIVE presents, instead of receive them. Sounds good to me!

So, the next big celebration coming up for me is when I finish editing the last two audiobooks in the Neighborlee, Ohio fantasy series. I’d like to give away a handful of COMPLETE collections of the audiobooks. That’s THIRTEEN BOOKS.

How will I know who to send the books to?

Let’s talk …
