Gaspard Gautier is a gryphon on a mission to save other gryphons and add them to the dwindling numbers at the Gryphon castle. After a recent failed negotiation with his son, his personal life is in shambles yet he embarks on another mission with a crisis of conscience. The vile situation he finds upon locating two new gryphons is like a scene from a horror movie until the real nightmare begins. The woman he has searched for his entire life shows up only to think he caused the evil she witnesses. He tries to explain, but the gun in her hand leaves him no room for negotiation. He wakes up weak and disoriented in Draoithe’s infirmary barely still alive. Convalescence is going to take a few weeks he doesn’t have and the woman who shot him is now his dragonsworn servant. With his mission a failure and no way to negotiate with his commanders about the timeline he will fail to meet, he finds himself in the midst of a midlife crisis. She is everything, and he must find a way to claim her even though relationships with the dragonsworn are forbidden and punishable by death. Draoithe: No Negotiations Part 1 is now live! The saga continues in Volume 18.
A Fin knight searches for his betrothed only to learn that she has died in a barn filled with immortal victims who are being hurt and used as part of a horrible experiment. There is little he can do for her, but his long ingrained code of chivalry demands he save the others. When he seeks help and returns to rescue the ones he can, he finds his true life mate. She was turned as a canine shifter with drugs and needs his help to learn how to fit into a world suddenly filled with immortal fairy tale creatures. He is conflicted between grief and amazement. He must overcome the conflict of conscience that is blocking him from learning if still waters run deep and decide how to seek vengeance for not only his betrothed but for everything, or risk losing it all. Draoithe: Still Waters Part one is FREE this Weekend! Step into the dream and enjoy the escape.
Authorwalk Journey Continues...
The day job still interferes with my authorwalk and my dreams of video books are still floating on the horizon like puffy clouds. But the publishing continues. I made promises not to quit until the story was told. I'm not giving up. Things might just take me a little bit longer than I want.
If you have only just now found the dream, welcome. Stop over at opheliakee.com and grab your free book. (The Thread is the prologue to the saga.) If you know others who enjoy adult paranormal romance, word of mouth is still the very best compliment.
I did learn a bit more about ads and am looking into trying some more of that as I gain the ability. To all of you have been faithfully following my walk and supporting the dream, Thank You sincerely.
Teasers from Stories not yet Finished!
The man was an idiot. That was the only reasonable explanation. Palladin was young for an archangel, but he wasn’t dumb. He’d found his light. He knew the truth that the older archangel was refusing to see.
Phanuel had walked away from the one woman who should’ve been soulbound for him. He’d been mad with grief. Sure that was obvious. But a thousand years?
He had to be an idiot. Hiding away licking his wounds in the Lan Damhan just proved that the man was mentally unstable.
Palladin plunged his sword into the body of the grotesque attacking him. He fought the surging tide of immortals whose magic had been damaged with his back to the other archangel whose skill with the whitest blade rivaled his own. They’d both ran toward the fight as archangels did. That proved that the man was still a man at least.
“You’re a fool, Phan. Lyta is amazing, and you should hear her side of that story instead of shutting her out.” Palladin grunted as he used his foot to push the body of the grotesque off of his sword while ducking the hammer swung at him from a big hulking part-bear shifter.
“Shut up, Adin. She sentenced my cousin to the void. He was my best friend. She never even considered the price for that. How could she be my soulbound? You just don’t understand.”
The older angel was breathing hard as he too fought off a drooling eagle headed monster that was intent on attacking Gwen’s unfinished home. One after another stepped up attempting to end them.
Outtake scene from Draoithe: Strange Visions by Ophelia Kee. This story is still in the writing stage with only about 30,000 words. It's coming likely in late 2021.
I gotta run. The last story is still messing with my writing on other stories. Enjoy the weekend! As always if you read, please be kind and leave your reviews. Indie Authors will truly appreciate you if you do!
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.
