It's cold and rainy here in Longview, TX. Makes me want to curl up with a good book, wrap up in a warm blanket, sip some hot tea, and step into the pages of a good book. Too bad I have to work. The good news is that at least I am working on a book at least. I have started the final edit process for Filth and Death. It's going to be good, but wow did it run long. I hope you guys are up for a super intense read. But speaking of books, I wanted to give you a taste of Dream Therapy. A scene if you will. The book comes out Jan. 30. You can get your preorder copy today. But just so you know why you want it:
“I know you let me win that duel, Andrei.” Blaze said.
“What makes you think that?” Andrei asked without denying the accusation as he accepted the staff from Blaze.
The two men walked off into the moonlight to a small clearing in the trees. Andrei winked out then winked back wearing only loose joggers as Blaze was. Teleporting was a cool magic.
“Flame says it’s true. We have been tight so long that if he told me the sky turned gold, I would have no reason to think he lied.” Blaze admitted as he began to step through the low level series of moves he had long used as a warm up. Andrei was doing the same.
“I could not beat you.” Andrei said. Blaze raised a brow at that even though neither man stopped their practice.
“I think you chose not to beat me, but you also could not lose.” Blaze said.
“A wise dragon sees the truth and knows that there was only one path to follow. I won that night even if the record shows otherwise. We both know that. You are a better man than you were when we met. Having your Valkyrie has tempered your judgment, and you are slower to anger than you were when you first arrived. We all benefited if you won the duel.” Andrei did not admit that he threw the match, but Blaze knew that he had.
In other news, the Preview story boards are coming right along. I posted Magic Calls to Magic and Dragons Come to Pinterest yesterday. I'm going to try to get them on Instagram today! The response has been really good so far. I'm glad you guys like them. I'm still working on the Fireside reads. (LOL. They might become Oceanside reads if I keep going at this pace because it will be summer before I get one finished.) Wow, it was a lot harder to do than I thought. But that's the Indie Writer life. I think up something cool to do with the books in the series, but then I have to find a way to actually make it happen. Sometimes that becomes a lot more complicated that it seemed whenever I dreamed it up. Maybe it will turn out better because it took me long to learn what to do. As soon as I get it, I will post it to YouTube and share it with everyone. Hopefully, I can get some feedback on whether it was such a good idea or not.
For all the Kindle Unlimited readers out there, I wanted to remind you to check into the short reads. They are the the extras, the tangential stories, and the reworked scenes from the cutting room floor concerning incidents and peripheral characters in the main series. They don't take too long. Weaver's Tale is the longest one. If you have not found them, check them out and let me know how you feel about them. I always want to hear from my readers. Sometimes the questions you ask arc the spark for more books. So drop me a line, leave a review, offer a comment, ask a question. Contact me. I am probably writing, but I swear I will answer you back. Just give me a bit to get to it. Thanks for reading and sharing Draoithe.
Until next time, Don't forget to be leaving those reviews.
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.
