Lady of the Quill
My latest submission was accepted! Chronicles of Ylandre Book Six: In Fine Form is tentatively slated for release the last week of June. If I sink out of sight again for the next few weeks or so, it's because I'll be neck deep in edits. Wish me luck!

It's been ages since I posted a chapter for Prior Claim. Is anyone still reading this fic? I hope so because it's finally in the home stretch. There are just ten chapters to go. And with its conclusion I'll be past the halfway point with my fanfic100 challenge series. To think when I signed up way back I thought it would be a breeze to finish. I should have known better. Anyway, as always I hope this pleases.

Chronicles of Ylandre Book Five is out

Lady of the Quill
Cross Purposes is now available at Liquid Silver Books, Amazon and ARe (see links below) and will eventually appear on B&N, iBookstore, Kobo and Sony Reader Store. My apologies for this late posting. I've been down with a bad case of the sniffles, stuffed sinuses and headaches galore and haven't got near a computer until now. Talk about inconvenient timing. Anyway, I would like to thank everyone who pre-ordered my book—that was a huge boost to my morale which was pretty low the last few days due to my infernal cold. I'll try to get out another chapter of Prior Claim before too long and am working like mad on CoY Book Six. Maybe I'll manage to complete another book within months of a previous release rather than a year. It's worth a try. Meanwhile, I hope Cross Purposes lives up to expectations. Thank you one and all for all the support and encouragement.

Blurb:
With love, the line between happiness and heartache is all too easy to cross.

One of Ylandre’s most prominent nobles, Keosqe Deilen may have had it all in terms of wealth, power, and social rank. But in matters of the heart, he was impoverished. Such was the consequence of falling in unrequited love. Though he hides that love and his sorrow well, a few inevitably see through his masquerade.

Young Tristen Marante is quick to discern Keosqe’s pain. His blunt sympathy is a balm to Keosqe’s wounded heart as much as his beauty is an effective distraction from the noble’s hopeless yearning. But Tristen is a skittish would-be lover, whose reluctance to express his affection is as much an impediment as the lack of reciprocation from Keosqe’s first love had been. Whereas Keosqe seeks intimacy, Tristen shies from it, suspicious of the motives behind his pursuit and unwilling to yield his heart so easily or soon.

With such different perspectives toward lust and love, is it any wonder their path to a common goal is strewn with stumbling blocks and paved with false impressions?

Lady of the Quill
Belated Easter blessings to one and all! I hope those of you who observe Holy Week and celebrate Easter had a fruitful weekend.

It's summer in my part of the world and my family headed for the beach at the request of my mom though we've always preferred to stay home from Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday. Not only do the usual heavy traffic and its attendant noise and pollution virtually disappear when just about everyone leaves town for somewhere else,
the resulting peace and quiet promotes a more prayerful atmosphere too. But the resort we went to has a long beachfront where you can find a nice cozy spot for yourself if you're so inclined. It's also far enough from the madding crowd that you can forget the outside world and and just relax and enjoy each other's company. So we came back rested and refreshed and thankful that my mom is persistent almost to a fault.

It's been a very long while in between updates for Prior Claim. This is rather short and transitional in tone and a little foreboding for an Easter offering, so I decided not to make it one. But it felt good writing this and there was a lovely sense of homecoming when I immersed myself once more in this universe. Hopefully, I'll manage to write another one before too long now that I've submitted the manuscript for Book Five to my publisher. I'm now waiting to see if they'll pick it up (crossing all my fingers that they do!), but in the meantime I might as well try to update as much as I can before I start the next book. As always, I hope this pleases.
