Migraines. I detest them. They steal part of my life. I spent the last 20 hours dealing with one. Finally, the meds worked. But The feeling of being too hot when it's freezing outside is ridiculous. The nausea makes me dizzy and the light. Please shut it all off. I lie very still to stop the worst of the pain with a wet cloth over my eyes and forehead. I don't sleep, because the pain it too intense for that. Yeah, I took the medication, but sometimes I'm too late. If it comes back up, it is a long ride to freedom. It's after six on Sunday evening, and I think I might survive. My head still aches, but the light no longer acts like a laser beam. So good news.
I thought I might take this Sunday that my head is in the all wrong place to introduce y'all to my longtime writing companion, Sancho. He usually takes me for walks so I don't just stare at the computer screen too long. He is also a bit of a tennis ball freak, but I love him still. He is the best. So I thought maybe he might need a little spot in my digital world. He approved of the Soon to be Released book list so I added him to the From My Desk page of the OpheliaKee.com . So the miniseries is a go. I am looking at covers for the short reads now!
In other news from Draoithe, I am still working on storyboard previews. I would like to be caught up on that front by the end of March. I don't think I will make them for the short reads though. Maybe just the excerpt cards for them as the stories are so short. I have made the executive decision that I have to back away from my idea for fireside reads at the moment. I need to find a better way to record the scenes. So I am putting that on the back burner for the time being. I'm not giving up, just reevaluating the logistics.
Tomorrow is the big day! Filth and Death will be live on Amazon. I can't wait. It's good. It might be one of my very best. Y'all know I love The Dark Gift, but Filth and Death might just be my second favorite. Don't tell the other novels. LOL. Grab your copy at the debut price. If you wait too long, the price will go up. It's worth every bit of the $4.99 I usually ask for my novels. But right now on pre-order and for the next couple of weeks it will be 20% off that price, so don't wait too long to find out why Frank Grimes really is a character you will love to hate.
I am working on setting up another free book give-away on Amazon in March. It's a little tricky because I have a lot of stuff already going on in March. Synner and Sainte is moving to Kindle Unlimited. FINALLY! Also the next full length novel Dragon Masters should be coming out on the 23rd. Either way if I can manage it, I promise to give away more free stuff.
Excerpt from the short read miniseries Dread Allies: Shadow King: “Peter Elliot sent a shifter named Roger Dunbar out to my house looking for me a few months ago. I was living in a small house in a subdivision not far from here while we were building our home at Draoithe. Dunbar had gotten the wrong address from the contractor and found Eli instead. I was not here.” Luke shook his head and growled low. They had wanted him but went after his mate like the cowards that they were. “He tied her to a chair and tortured her for information about me. He wanted proof that I was a direwolf. Eli refused to give him answers, and he cut her up so badly that she almost died.” Luke looked away from Alexio. The guilt ate at him still. If he had taken Eli with him, she would not have gotten hurt. But he could not fix the past. “A coward.” Alexio snarled echoing Luke’s thoughts.
Dread Allies is going to be good. It is a spinoff collection of short reads about a small kingdom in Netherworld called Eaglafonn (Dread Desire). Luke makes an ally and uses that ally to finally strike back at Peter Elliot in a way that puts Draoithe ahead of the game instead of always being behind. The stories in Dread Allies will only add to the Draoithe Series. But I hope you will like the Shadow King and his demonic kingdom. I better go and find something else to get in trouble with. Don't forget if you read to be kind and leave a review.
Welcome to Ophelia Kee Speaks. This is a blog chronicling my independent author walk. The journey into the dream has been a life-changing experience as I try to become a full-time writer and leave the professional world behind me. In my blog each day, you will find information on the ‘behind the scenes’ for writing contemporary adult fantasy fiction and paranormal romance stories set in the dream. I will speak on topics detailing with my writing, publishing, promotion, and marketing as well as social media dealing with my books, book trailers, book launches, book art, music, audio, and video, as well as shameless self-promotion. I am not an expert and am not claiming to be one. I am simply one writer offering a glimpse of my struggle to become a successful independent author. Thank you for considering my words.
