Behind the Scenes
I am currently editing volume 20 Criminal Behavior. It's a good adult fantasy story. The Ainglean meets Draoithe. A Dragon King and the soulbound rise. This story is more fantasy than paranormal romance. Some lean on the more romantic side. This one has elements of romance, but is building up toward the end of the series with more fantasy action scenes. I can't pretend that I am any good at all the literary jargon. I just want to write a good story and offer a great escape. For a few, I might have managed it. To those of you who get it, thank you. For those who don't, sorry. Maybe the next works will appeal to you differently. Sadly, even though I have some interest in possibly writing other stories, I want to finish the Draoithe saga before I write anything else. So please don't hold your breath on any brand new story lines. There will be others, but I am nowhere near ready to share any of that.
I am still struggling with merchandise. Not sure what direction to go with that. I thought I had it with Printful, but it did not work out. I am going to look into Teespring next.
The whole idea of audio is still a nightmare. I want to release my works on an audio format, but it is far more difficult to get a quality sound than one would think. Don't give up. I haven't.
The Book trailer for The Library is currently showing on YouTube. The webpage has been updated with a link on the Novels section. I hope y'all let me know if you like it. Subscribe to the channel and hit the thumbs up button when you check it out so you can get alerted when a new video is uploaded. Leave me a comment or two. It is always awesome to hear from you. I love answering questions, so fire away. Sometimes your questions have sparked whole story lines that I did not realize needed to be explored.
Up and Coming!
Midnight Magic will begin releasing July 31. The short read, Draoithe: Drake and Lorelai will precede the miniseries. It will be released for only $.99. I am excited. If you have been following the Instagram and Facebook stories, I have been releasing a few pieces. I hope it gets the recognition it deserves. Drake and Lorelai have an awesome love affair. I really enjoyed writing the whole book. When you meet Julian, I pray that you don't cringe when you learn how awful the Wizard's Circle really was. I will let you decide.
I best get back to work. Thanks for stopping by for a moment to check in on my author walk. If you read, don't forget to be kind and leave a review. Much love for that.
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.
