Wow!

on November 13, 2017 in News from J.C. 5 Comments »

Wow! Finished two stories in one day! That has to be a first. Finished “Away in a Manger”, a short Christmas story, written for a challenge, and finally finished the Gaven sequel I have been promising, “Parting Truth”, Ice’s story. Will let you know a publishing date as soon as I know!

Now, I will focus on “Farfall” and the Tarsus sequel that was promised. : )

I just finished a short Christmas story, which was written for a Christmas Short Story challenge. I have never written a specific Christmas story before, so this is new. We’ll see what the publisher says. It is based on an Alberta ranch. : )

It was so amazing to attend GRL! Met so many people! I can now link names to faces of authors and readers that I have known about for years. People told me about how my stories had affected them, and it was the most wonderful gift I could have received. I think we forget how words can mean so much, have such immense effects, change things. It humbles me to think that anything I have created could help anyone in need, and I am grateful for the chance to discover that. Thank you, so much, for those who were open and giving in their discussions with me. I have taken those encounters to heart and feel a renewed need to write!
It was also inspiring to see the freedom with which people could be themselves, in whatever form made them happy. Men walking hand in hand, free to show complete love, people able to shed gender and become anything at all. The acceptance, the friendships. The lack of judgement. I just wish the outside world could mirror even a fraction of this…

I am leaving tomorrow for GRL Retreat in Denver. Nervous and excited all rolled into one. Can’t wait to meet other authors, and really, really hope I can meet some of the people on my mailing list, the ones who have supported me through thick and thin! Should be a learning experience… : )

Well, the sequels count is in! Gaven won by a landslide, so for September and October, I will be working on Ice’s story, Parting Truth. In a surprise win, Tarsus came in second! I did not even have a sequel in mind, but already plots are brewing… ; )

Don’t worry. I will hold another sequel contest next year, for two more fall sequels!! Thanks so much for voting, I really enjoyed this…

Gaven universe – 22
Wings universe – 14
Emperor’s Wolf universe – 8
Tarsus universe – 16
Taken universe – 7
The Falling universe – 8
Dragon Forge universe – 9
Wishes universe – 7
Betrayal universe – 7
Ice Prince universe – 6
Soulseeker universe – 6
The Chosen universe – 6

Well, I have to say the Bowron canoe circuit has a lot to recommend it if you need to lose weight. Shed ten pounds of fat, added enough muscle to bench press a car, and am so exhausted that I have slept for two days straight. 70 miles and portages galore. Nice to experience. Never again.

So, we are almost at the cut off date for the sequels. Here are the latest numbers as of today:

Wow! Tarsus surged into second place with very definitive votes!! We have until Friday…

Gaven universe – 22
Wings universe – 14
Emperor’s Wolf universe – 8
Tarsus universe – 16
Taken universe – 7
The Falling universe – 8
Dragon Forge universe – 9
Wishes universe – 7
Betrayal universe – 7
Ice Prince universe – 5
Soulseeker universe – 6
The Chosen universe – 5

Just letting everyone know I will be offline until Aug. 25. I am off to the Rocky Mountains for a ten day kayak trip, and then am going to meander through the mountains, kayaking here and there as the whim takes me. So if I don’t answer your comments quickly, that will be why. : )

Finally finished another book! Yay! Dragon Forge is the story of a young blacksmith and his abduction as a “chosen” to a dragon riders’ fortress, where he encounters personal tragedy, and an intimate view into why the dragons are dying out…
Will keep you advised on release dates, etc.

“The Chosen” republished

on January 15, 2017 in News from J.C. Comments Off on “The Chosen” republished

“The Chosen”, formerly published by the now defunct Ellora’s Cave, (what a debacle), has now been re-edited and re-published by Etopia Press. The changes are relatively small, so if you have purchased the book before, it would not be worth your while. I would really like word to get out though to those who have not yet read the story. It did not get good exposure under Ellora’s Cave and sales were terrible. I am so relieved to see it under Etopia Press’s wing. I love this story, and hope others will too!

Finally finished another book! About bloody time… “Windwraith” is completed and has been sent to Etopia Press. Hope to hear something soon. Not sure what story I will work on now. I will probably play with several until one grabs my interest! : )
