The Council has been updated! It is now available as an e-book. The updated paperback version will be available at the end of the weekend. As I began updated the older stories in the saga with the help of Grammarly, I realized some things about my writing. First, I love to write and tell the story. I want to get it done and make it available as soon as possible which is why so many titles have been published this year. Second, I am really petty about the things that make a story a good book.
I am not talking about content here. I'm speaking to the little things that are easy to ignore, but must really be included in paperback texts. I tried to get away without including the footers and headers in the short reads. I even went so far as to decide that if the stories were truly complete volumes of short reads then the headers and footers were not necessary in the complete volumes. The thing is that I hate the look of it.
With the E-book, none of that matters. There is an air of elegance to a physical book which I simply can't ignore. So I'm correcting that. The stories will remain essentially the same with perhaps a tiny bit of grammatical clean up, and the paperback versions will get the love and care they deserve with the addition of the headers and footers that I thought I could leave out, but simply can't.
My author walk has been crazy and I have no doubt that it will always be a bit crazy so long as I am the one in charge. LOL. I have been enjoying the ride.
I am always updating and adding crazy stuff to the website as well as the social media sites. If you haven't wandered around the site before, or if it's been a while, check it out. If you have only recently discovered the dream, I love visitors. I am real and I enjoy comments, questions, and suggestions. (Don't get angry if your suggestion doesn't fit the story. I am not in charge here. I just write the story that flows in the dream. But sometimes reader comments do mean I have to write more books. It has happened several times before with Dread Allies, Eyrie Iolair, and Draoithe's Synner and Sainte. There are a few that are about to be published due to reader commentary as well in the Lyons Gate series.) If you need a link to reach me, check out the ones below:

Shameless Self Promotion
I do give away the Prologue to A Pack Forms Draoithe: The Thread as a FREE story for anyone to check out my story style and meet the main characters of the overall fantasy. No one wants to spend money on something they would not enjoy. The Thread is about an hour short read, so check it out. It's PG13, so no worries. The saga itself is definitely super hot and steamy with adult content. Forewarned is Forearmed.
This story is currently in the works to be released in an audio format for YouTube soon! I never realized how much fun it would be to record the stories. Like everything else in my author walk, this too is entirely independent and that means it depends on my day job, but I think it might finally be available before Christmas. I finally got it! On to Merch again next. I will figure it out. Thanks for having faith and patience with my tech-challenged self.
I have some homework to do for that day job so I better run away. As always if you read, please be kind and leave your reviews. As an independent author, I will appreciate it immensely.
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.
