My authorwalk has been a strange long journey. I have enjoyed every minute of it including the weird and frustrating aspects. Super excited to let you know that the miniseries Draoithe: The Ruiri Complete is available on Amazon. But you should by the saga in one book rather than Kindle's boxed set as it is less expensive that way!
I found Facebook shops recently and decided to build one. I mean it sounds good. More exposure for the books and one more chance for people to see them. It is not a perfect fit though. I tried posting my books, but I got a lot of random rejections from Facebook. Apparently, the robots think my shifter characters are me selling real animals. Sigh... I applied for the situation to be reviewed, but I don't hold out much hope.
No matter. I shall persevere. Many of the books are located in the shop and do link directly to my Amazon Author page. When you click the link, it takes you to Amazon where you can purchase the paperback or the ebook from Kindle. So that was nice. Too bad all of my books aren't there. Once again there is simply no substitute for a website. (Get a FREE Book when you subscribe!)
Draoithe: No Negotiations has begun publishing. Part one is available and part 2 has been uploaded to Amazon. I am waiting on the review to be able to say it's live! While we wait for it, check out the blurb...
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.
FREE this weekend, Part 1 Draoithe: Smoke of the Fire. Grab a copy before it returns to normal price at Midnight Monday evening. Fuego was a dragon knight, but somewhere along the path of his life, he lost the ability to feel emotion. He lived in a world of color as if he himself were black and white. His only hope for correcting his situation is to find his Valkyrie. Scarlett was kidnapped and turned into a canine shifter, but she was already an accomplished fire mage. When she meets Fuego, it’s love at first sight. There’s only one small problem. Her fire wishes to combine with his when they get too close, and their love affair threatens to burn down the house. They need some serious help resolving the highly combustible nature of their attraction.
Sneaking an advance announcement: Draoithe: Arctic Fox will be FREE next weekend. (11/19-11/23) It will never be FREE again. This is a one time only deal! I mean it. This short read is worth getting. The story of what happens when Fox finds Artie is a good extra story. Get inside the mind and learn the secret insecurities of the Fox king. Happy Holidays a bit in advance. We need it this year!
I have to run. Desdemona Laveau, the voodoo priestess is demanding her fifteen minutes of fame. If you are wondering, she is a peripheral character from Draoithe: Synner and Sainte, but she has a pivotal role to play in rescuing Percival Dragan Ban from Talamh Liath. So I gotta write. If you read, please be kind and leave your review and check back in later to get more updates on the dream.
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.
