Happy Thanksgiving to all who will be celebrating it! Urban fantasy writer N. K. Vir is hosting a giveaway on Prolific Works (the new name for our old friends at Instafreebie). She’s pulled together a huge number of paranormal books of every length, from sneak previews and short stories, to full-length books. From mystery to romance to fantasy to horror, there’s something to entertain everyone on these long, dark evenings!
She was gracious enough to include the sample chapter from my first novel, Marrying a Monster, in her giveaway, but there’s lots more to choose from-just click here or on the link in the first paragraph to see the complete list of freebies.
Yesterday, I finally finished the rough draft of Saving a Queen, the second of four books in the Ancestors of Jaiya series and the last one to be written. I was trying to take it slow and save my wrists by dictating it, and of course I’m not nearly as experienced with that as I am with typing. I’ve done some editing on the first book in the prequel series, but I still have quite a bit of work to do, to polish up these four books. I am currently planning to release all of them together sometime in first quarter of 2019, but it would more likely be March or late February than January.
In the meantime, Marrying a Monster, the first book in the main Jaiya series, is free on all major vendors in a number of countries. I’ve been informed that it is not free on some of Amazon’s non-US stores but I haven’t been able to get this sorted out yet. My priority right now is preparing my space opera concept for NaNoWriMo2018.
I hope to draft some posts about the writing process-about dictation, about the NaNoWriMo project-and schedule them to publish, but we’ll see how that turns out.

Hello there! After several months of hard work, I am pleased to announced that my third novel,Loving a Deathseer, is available online now. The heroine of Deathseer is the cousin of the two brothers who were the heroes of Marrying a Monster and Waking the Dreamlost and all three books are set in the country of Jaiya, in a world not quite like ours.
You can find Deathseer at major ebook stores all across the internet, such as Amazon, Nook, iBooks, and Kobo.
If you haven’t gotten the chance to read Marrying A Monster, the first book in the Jaiya Series, it is available at all the same vendors as Deathseer. Just click here to be taken to the vendor of your choice, or here to download a free sample chapter. If you would like to read Waking the Dreamlost, click here to be taken to the vendor of your choice, or here to download a free prequel story.
