but you DO need to be a member of this Goodreads group (and if you like m/m fiction, you'll enjoy the group!). Andrea Speed is already one of my favorite author's and her SF story Villains
looks great and a new-to-me author, Edmond Manning's novella Broken Phoenix
looks great (I have a thing for phoenixes and dragons).
My story will probably be out a little later in the release queue because well life ran me over and got in the way of editing it (how it got to be nearly 40K I have no idea). I'm very excited for it because I'll be honest, I let my local writers' group have a sneak peek and they enjoyed it (I had to let them see it. I did murder them all in the story, after all.)
I had mocked up a little cover for it that I didn't share because well I'm not good at graphics but here it is for you all.
Yes that IS the Ridges (The Athens Lunatic Asylum) on fire. It plays a role in the story, I promise. And if you missed my earlier teasers you can find them here. All about the Ridges
and This one has my prompts
(I can't stop looking at the guy in the middle, I fudged the looks on the other two but the blond is pretty much exactly what Faolan looks like).
Before I get to the excerpt I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the places in the story. The Union Street Diner
This is where the story opens and is often where my writers group meets (and where we all died). Then there's The Donkey coffee and Espresso
Another place my group meets (and listen to open mike night). I love their lavender lattes. The Wizard’s Guild
is a comic book/gaming store (Why do I hurt the things I love in this story?) It's one of Faolan's hang outs being a gaming geek. And a few of my writers group dies twice in this... sorry ladies.
A new favorite of mine and long-time favorite of Faolan and Jason (and they are indoctrinating Derrek with it)> Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery
I have to admit Faolan and company drink a lot of beer and tea in this (What can I say? Two of my favorite things).
And the art movie theatre, The Athena
which gets busted all up (and as I looked this up, I learned it's showing The Only Lovers Left Alive
And now, as promised a teaser for the story!( The trio's first meeting.Collapse )
Some of the stories are already going up. I'm SO excited for two of the first three (not that the third looks bad. It's just contemporary fiction which isn't my bag and I know there's no way I'll be able to read all 212 stories!). You can find them
