Draoithe: Midnight Magic the complete miniseries Volume 17 is now available as an ebook and is coming soon in paperback. This is a monster 12 part miniseries that encompassed nearly 110,000 words. I write long, but I edit short. Compiling the parts to create the novel is arduous, tedious and requires the use of two computers to get it published. It's a crazy affair, but I got it done. I hope you enjoy Julian's Story. It's a bit entwined with a couple of dragons, a wizard and his wisdom, and as always there are cameo appearances from other characters in the saga.
Julian Gypsun used to be a young man on his way to becoming a contractor. Everything changed when he died and was resurrected as a wizard’s familiar. He was immortal and far better off physically than he had been as a human. Still, he was trapped with his life chained to a giant of a wizard who had no problem abusing him in every way imaginable. Julian was powerless to stop it without ending his own existence. That is until he was yanked bodily through his own portal, transported to Draoithe, and assigned to babysit the visiting dignitary, Amazon Warrior Princess Zephyra, and try to convince her that her people should ally themselves with Luke and Draoithe. That sounded easy, but it wasn’t. He liked her. He had no clue how to act on that. Best to avoid that altogether. Keeping her safe just might equal his death. (Please see her warrior princess title.) She was old and so far out of his league. Worse, she liked him and was determined to have him. He can’t even consider that. She has no idea how broken he really is.
This story is heartrending, funny, steamy, and just lovely at the end. It has become one of my favorites. If you side with the underdog, then this is the paranormal love story you need to read from the saga. This was also just the perfect image for this excerpt. Drake is midnight green. Lorelai is midnight blue. I am Super in love with Pixabay free images. Now that it's finished and all published, I'm kind of sad that this story is done. I had a lot of fun writing this one. As you all know, I never pay for reviews so I will humbly ask that if you read any of my works or any other indie author stories that you please be kind and leave your review. It's okay if you read and don't like it. Just be kind and state why. What turns one reader away from a story is often the exact reason that someone else will choose to read it. All reviews are good reviews if they are honest and kind.
Shameless Self Promotion
My Author Walk
I want to try something. I make money from Kindle and the Amazon platform. It is not more than gas money and sometimes not even that much. (Full disclosure, I have never earned more than $75 in a single month. At this point, I am a hobby indie author who would love to be a full time author, but the day job is a must. At my age, it will likely be that way until I retire if I ever can. LOL) But I have never enrolled The Thread in the exclusive program. I mean I give that title away as a pdf from my website so... I think I am going to publish it wide and see what happens over the holidays. It is only $.99 to buy as a short read e-book. It's the prologue to A Pack Forms. I am just curious about the level of response I might get on say Google Play as they have recently made quite a few changes to their platform. I am still not willing to run Google ads nor do I run Amazon ads. Facebook at a dollar a day is all I can afford to risk. If I am going to publish it there, I might as well post it to Kobo and Barnes and Noble. Let's see what happens.
I am still working on video books and podcasts. I will definitely make some noise if I ever get it released. If I ever get merch figured out, I still want to do that too. If I only had more time, money and less day job. LOL.
Gotta run. The housework still must be done on the weekends! If you read, please be kind and leave your reviews. I catch up with you next weekend.
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.
