One Year Ago

It was one year ago that I posted my first story hear, God Given Face. I'd really intended to have my next story ready to go for today, but I'm afraid I missed that deadline by a country mile. As I mentioned, I changed jobs and moved, and that cut out a lot more writing time than I'd originally planned. So, at best, next story will be late next month.

Luck of the Draw

Luck of the Draw.jpg Heart of12379719-crop.pngthe Beholden.

Chris’s class would be assigned their first romantic partners. It was an event they all looked forward to. For two months the boys would get to know their first girlfriends.

At least, that’s what Chris thought the plan was.

Sometimes things don’t go the way you expect. It’s just the luck of the draw.

Author’s Note: This is not the usual transformation story I write. I decided to step out of my comfort zone for the contest. While I still hope you enjoy it, I would request additional feedback since this is a new style for me. Thank you.

Thanksgiving's coming up, so time to start sharing recipes. This is one of the recipes I make every year - family tradition and probably the best cranberry sauce I've had. I'll give amounts, but really do all ingredients to taste, vary them up based on whim, whatever...

2 cups cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup brandy

As part of my quest to get better at writing I've decided to actually follow the advice I keep seeing out there - yeah, I know, that's a radical idea and all, but it just might help... So, I found a nearby writer's group and intend to go there next week.

But that leads to my question. What to expect?

Technical Question

I've gotten in discussions about books a few times now, either in comments or PMs. Is there a way to embed links to Amazon in our messages so this site gets their affiliate credit? I see the ad in the corner of the site that lets the site get a commission from Amazon shopping, but don't know if we can make that more general.

Just wanted to know in case we can make those links ourselves. Might as well - I'd be quite happy to see the site get some credit when I shop there.

Thanks for any help.

Shade of Night Part 11

ShardSmall.jpg Someone killed Lord Pankov, and it wasn’t the man arrested for the crime. The ghost, Pascal Hunter, is on the trail of the killer. Possessing the body of Simza Gray, she must battle to hang on to her sense of self while also trying to solve the mystery.

She and her partner, the former fey, eternally ten year old Brynn, have accumulated too many suspects. They’ve also made a few too many waves in the normally placid household.

Shade of Night Part 7

ShardSmall.jpg Murder investigations shouldn’t go like this.

Pascal Hunter is possessing the lovely body of Simza Gray. She hopes to solve the case before the woman’s thoughts and feelings completely overwhelm her. Some of those feelings are towards her new fiance. The rest of the family, and their staff, resent her presence.

She is hoping her partner, the eternal ten-year-old Brynn, has better luck than she has had.

Shade of Night Part 4

ShardSmall.jpg Pascal Hunter has barely started investigating Lord Pankov’s murder and already he’s sorry he ever took the case.

Forced to leave his body behind, he possesses a young woman he knows nothing about. He must hide his true identity while searching for a killer. And he must prevent the memories and personality of the body he occupies from overwhelming him.

There’s a reason he hates possessing people.

An Introduction

I just posted my first story here last week, and figured it would be nice to introduce myself. I've been lurking here for a few years, and enjoying some truly excellent stories - thank you all very much. I'd recently changed jobs, and the new position is much less demanding than what I'd done previously (pays more, though ;) The upshot of which is that I've been getting bored, so decided to try my hand at writing, thus my first story.
