I got the contract for Blood of the Moon, Runespells #4! What a way to end 2020, and what a nice way to start off 2021, since that will be one of the four (FOUR!!!!) novels I need to publish next year. That's a bit of a relief, there. How are your goals going?

I need to write one! I am not starting with a leg-up this year. I have several choices but I think I'll be going with one of the titles I've been tossing around a bit longer. Feel free to comment which ones you would like to see me get done this year! Threadreader (M.A.G.U.S. #1) - Magecrafters Alliance Guild of the United States (M.A.G.U.S.) and its sister group, the Magecrafters Alliance Guild of Europe (M.A.G.E.), work to find the lost Seelie magecrafter bloodlines, and to find and Bond each Fountain to a family line of Caretakers. But the Unseelie magecrafters work to beat the guilds to new-found Fountains, or to break the Bond to twist the Fountains into seats of power for themselves. Heidi has spent her life protecting her autistic brother as they navigated the foster care system. Now, she is seeing things - strange buildings that no one else can see, and strange women with powerful auras. It turns out that Heidi and her brother are Magecrafters: fae-blood humans with magical powers. They must learn to tap into their newfound talents, or the bad guys might get their claws into a major power source, killing an entire family in the process. A Sharp Line Crossed – Viv learns that her dearest friend, Candy, has been murdered by Candy's ex. The shocker is that he took the daughter that Candy had kept secret even from Viv. Viv can't let an innocent girl stay with a skinhead gang. That's a line that she won't let even the baddest gangbanger cross. Company Man - Muses literally create ideas. Corporations have learned to manipulate Muses for profit. And they will kill to keep their Muse in check. Robert is uncomfortable toeing the line as a company man. But this isn't a job you can just quit. Lost Queen of Alfeari - The Queen is dead. Long live the Queen! Kaila has lived with the jungle tribes of the Kong'sha for her entire life, learning to survive and practicing the secret ways of Spirit-Talking and Skin-Slipping. When a strange man named Lotai appears and demands that the lost heir to the kingdom of Alfeari return to the Capitol with him, Kaila is shocked to learn he is talking about her! Now, Kaila has been ceremonially disowned by her tribe and thrust into the unfamiliar world of nobility and politics. She soon discovers that someone is trying to kill her, and Lotai may be the only person she can trust - unless he is the one trying to kill her. Kaila doesn't understand politics, but the law of the jungle is kill or be killed. And that, she can do. The Monster of Bobcat Ridge - Mountain lion shifter and police chief, Karen, runs the police department with efficiency that goes above and beyond the needs of the small town. She makes sure petty crime is dealt with... and that the shifters that live there and pass through behave themselves. When shifters start turning up dead, she realizes there is a killer targeting the paranormals. She has to work with way-too-hot FBI agent, Hunter Paterson, without giving away the secret. Falling in love doesn't help. And neither does her family getting targeted next. The Queen's Dissent - A telepathic pairing of sentient AI with a human queen rules until the capitol is taken by cruel brutes and the AI destroyed. Years later, a young woman in the rebellion hears sweet whispers of love in her mind. The Rightful Heir - A young woman turns 18 and learns that she is the lost heir to the throne. She fights her way to the capitol and into the palace only to learn that she was the decoy. The real heir shows up and is an idiot. The council of lords decides to make the first girl the queen and kill the true heir to cover it up. Now MC must protect the true heir from those who would prefer her. The Second Princess - As the second princess born of her generation, Tasia has a specific destiny that will only come to pass if she undergoes the ritual to find her mated soul. But she has a different destiny in mind, and she puts the destinies of all her sisters and her kingdom at risk to find a way to break the curse. Tasia is about to learn that in the real world, things aren't always what they seem. Obsidian Winds - The world has been destroyed by magic. Now magic runs wild. Spells have turned the parts of the land into death traps, and magical creatures, coveted for their use in spells, have been hunted to near extinction. Pockets of underground plasma pools wait below thin layers of rock, and multicolored tornados spring up creating chaos. Some mages created forms of biowarfare, using magical "vivicitude", surgical alterations, on microscopic and disease-carrying creatures. These creatures have infected nearly half the population with a variety of diseases and viruses. Some kill, some change, but a few have unknown effects. Fearing them, people discovered to have these infections are quarantined into grottos, by disease. When Sable's family (mother, brother, baby sister) are found to carry the virus VD, they are unceremoniously deposited in the VoiD grotto. For Sable, it's the same stuff, different day. For everyone else, the world will never be the same.

It's that time of the year, when many writers go completely insane trying to up their annual word count. Community, friendly competition, and more words on the draft of your choice - what's not to love? Ok, ok, NaNo may not be for everyone, and that's fine. For those of you who do NaNo, buddy me! (Kalimama) For those on the fence, give it a go - no pressure, just writing! Tell me what *you* think of NaNoWriMo.

Genre: Fantasy, short story Blurb: Lana grew up with the deadly politics of Alfeari nobility. Now, she has been ordered to take the princess to the farthest reaches of the kingdom, away from threats of assassination. Can Lana and the royal toddler survive what - & who - is after them? "I only trust a few people with my daughter's life within the safety of this palace." Isidra spoke so softly, Lana half believed she was imagining the words at first. "Even fewer are the people I trust to keep her safe outside these walls. After her Acknowledgment and outside the city, I cannot think of more than one whose loyalty and inner strength are both so strong as to overcome all obstacles." Lana frowned, sure that the thoughts running through her head must be wrong. "A warrior, maybe? My aunt..." The Queen shook her head, cutting off Lana's grasping. "No." Her eyes bore into Lana's. "It must be you. You are the one I trust, the only one I trust." Lana shook her head reflexively. "Oh, your Majesty, no! I'm no assassin, no guardsman. I've never even been outside the city more than twice. And both of those times were in your entourage! I have no experience, no skills in negotiating the world. I would not be a good choice..." "The. Only. One." Isidra's clipped words filled Lana's gut with ice. "You have the skills I want, which are not necessarily the ones that are expected." The woman Lana had known for her whole life was gone. The nurse now faced Queen Isidra the third, Matriarch of Alfeari, Protector of the Coral Isles, Guardian of the Far Reaches, Overseer of the Shang Wilderness. Nearly tangible power whirled around the royal made flesh, a product of charisma and authority rather than of the Chi and Flows of Monks and Witches. Lana gulped, her throat suddenly, painfully dry. She tried to respond but only produced a weak hiss. Instead, she finally nodded.
