It's finally available! The Midnight Magic excerpt story, Drake and Lorelai is live from Amazon and FREE with Kindle Unlimited! Midnight Magic has begun publishing! Please enjoy the teaser story and watch for the next short reads to begin publishing beginning next week.
Drake Lesarde once knew the only woman in the dream for him was Lorelai Teragon. He knew it, but he had no idea how to approach the warrior woman with that knowledge. He drank with her, slept next to her, and fought beside her as the Viking warrior he was.
Lorelai Teragon never found any man worthy of her attention until she met Drake Lesarde. He was a warrior dedicated to raiding and pillaging. It was his single minded focus. She went with him as a shield maiden. He was quiet. There was peace and mutual respect. She thought that would be enough.
When Lorelai fell in battle, Drake’s soul cried out for the loss. He followed her into Valhalla. When Dross Rothstein brought his soul back to request he fight again, he had his chance to finally win Lorelai when Dross resurrected her as well. Time and Distance intervened. A thousand years parted them once again. Would love withstand that test?
This is the cover for Draoithe: Midnight Magic. The 12 part short read miniseries is volume 16 in the Draoithe Saga of stories. I can't wait to share the main story with everyone. The excerpt is now available and part one will publish by next week. Let me know what you think. As always this is an adult fantasy story. 18+ please. Triggers are always possible. Forewarned is always forearmed. If you do have an opportunity and choose to read any of my stories, Thank you in advance. Please be kind and leave a review. I love to hear what you think. If you have questions, Please ask. So long as it won't give away future stories, I will happily answer.
The Author Walk Continues!
I started walking this path in 2016. I began writing. It took me about two years to find self-publishing. Then it took me a while to get the ins and outs worked out. I got lucky and was able to take a little time off from my professional career. Since November of 2019, I was writing and publishing full time. Marketing and promoting are still not my strong suit, but maybe I will figure it out eventually. I am stepping back into my professional career on a slightly different path with a hopefully more balanced life. Y'all wish me luck.
I took time this summer while working on Project Publish to edit and get ready 58 short reads in 7 more volumes. Midnight Magic is the next volume up. It does take me a minute to set those up to publish, but I am hoping that I will be able to publish at least one short read a week even with my professional work. So as my author walk drops back to only a part time side hustle, I hope you all will bear with me and know that my love is to write, but my bills must be paid.
I apologize if my social media presence has fallen off and you have not seen me there often. I wanted to finish Project Publish and set up as many titles for future publishing as possible to be able to continue the saga as I return to a full-time professional career. I will likely still be on Facebook and Instagram and will continue to post pins on Pinterest, but my online presence will decline. It is inevitable that I must take this step back to concentrate on my career. I wish it could be different. I would love to simply write and publish all the time. Alas, it is not a possibility at the moment. I still want to hear from you. If you have comments or questions, please reach out, just give me a bit more time to answer. Until the next blog...
Duty calls. Life must go on. As always if you read, please be kind and leave your review. Thank you all for stepping into the dream when 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.
