Reign with Dick and Jane – A snippet & a sale!


Reign with Dick and Jane (Hell and Earth Book 3) is live!

I feel like this one was a long time coming. It was fun to wrap up this storyline. This also marks the completion of my first series!!

In honor of this momentous occasion, I have two surprises for you.

Thing 1: a snippet!

“You can’t come to my house and tell me what to do.”

He tried to get up and leave, but my spell stopped him. It took a few tries before he realized that it must’ve been something I’ve done. He didn’t like that.

“Jane Diaboloso, you release me.”

“You’re not bound here. Be glad I didn’t use the Devil’s Trap. The both of you simply must sit here until we work out the details. Then, you’re more than welcome to go on your way.”

“What kind of woman uses witchcraft on her father?”

“What kind of woman has the devil for a father?” I asked, raising an eyebrow and continuing to eat my meal.

He fell silent and started sulking. Dick then tried to get up and saw that he was bound too.

“I didn’t even do anything wrong. Why am I bound here?”

“Because you don’t listen. I just said that both of you are bound here until we come to an agreement so who’s going to go first?”

They sulked while eating their food. Dick and Dad were upset, but not too upset to eat. They were never too upset to eat.

“Fine. If neither one of you wants to put forth any effort into this, I’m going to make the plans. And if I make the plans you don’t have a say. So, first things first. If we’re going to be running Hell together, we can’t be living with my father.”

“And just where you think you’re going to go,” Lucifer asked.

“Nowhere. You’re out. After dinner feel free to pack your things.”

The table in front of Dad burst into flames.

Putting Lucifer out of his own house is a bold move. You’ll have to read the story to see how that plays out!

Thing 2: a sale!

Starting tomorrow, Hell With Dick and Jane (Hell and Earth Book 1) goes on sale for $0.99! The sale is only for 5 days, so get it while it’s hot!

Honestly, how sexy is this series image?

Too sexy!

Snippet from The Furious Prince

 

In case you haven’t heard, The Imp Prince released over the weekend!

I have a story in it called The Furious Prince. This story was my first foray into the techmage genre. Techmage is a mashup of science fiction and fantasy.

The Furious Prince is is another fairy tale retelling. You can find the original story on Wikipedia here. In this story, you will meet Furibon, a prince on a faraway planet. Despised by his father and most of his subjects, he hides his magical gifts until his sister is abducted. Check out the snippet below:

It was dusk, so the visibility was still good in the forest. Dusk was best because we had two suns that set within two hours of each other. That left me a good time to get my frustrations out. I strapped my resonator onto my face, and felt relieved as the straps clicked into place behind my head. It felt good to have something that I could control.

I focused my intention on my anger. I felt it welling up inside of me. When I began to sing, two feet in front of me a black and red fractal took shape. As it rushed away from me, the bushes in front of me caught flame. The fire out here wouldn’t be as dangerous as one closer to our lands. There were no homes out here that we had to concern ourselves with. Fire suppression drones were set to auto-deploy if the fire didn’t burn itself out.

I was still singing when I thought of Andre’s pretty face. The fractal that appeared before me was the teal blue of his skin combined with the blue-black tones of his hair. It twisted and turned into shape. I thrust it away from me, shattering the trunks of several trees. They splintered like robots falling on pavement. The tops of the trees looked out of place strewn all over the ground.

I heard footsteps behind me as though someone was trying to sneak up on me. I whirled around, and saw Andre’s face. He was half hidden behind a tree. I ceased my song.

“It looks like this planet is hiding more than just pretty princesses.”

“What are you doing here?”

“I was merely taking a walk. The question is, what are you doing here? Something tells me that the king doesn’t know about this. I would be greatly rewarded if he were to find out,” he said. That vile sneer was forming on his lips once again.

“I don’t think he will find out.”

“Oh? Don’t you? What will you do to encourage me to keep your secret?”

“I think I’ll ask you to leave. Leave this planet. I don’t know what you have planned, but I doubt it’s anything good.”

“Oh, but it’s magnificent. I plan to rule this planet. I’ll start by taking your sister. Perhaps, I’ll even give your lovely mother a try.”

Busy Busy Busy


Hello Musers,
I don’t know about you, but the last month has been a busy one for me. I have been writing and editing like crazy. If you want to see what I have in the works, check out my WIP page.

As you already know from this post, I am in the middle of the Phoenix Prime workshop and it has me working overtime! It is challenging, but I love every minute of it. The obvious results are my publications.

Last month, I was working on the Hell and Earth Series. Some of the stories are still in edits, and some are already published. Stay tuned for those new arrivals.

This month, I’m working on the Final Witch Series. It’s based around Linda from the Hell and Earth Series. She is a police detective who uses her witchcraft to solve crimes. I love weird and unsolved crimes, so I think this will be tons of fun to write.

Do you know of any strange crimes, or unsolved mysteries? Let me know in the comments! If I use it, I’ll thank you in the acknowledgments and name a character after you!
