I’m so pleased that Everwood is now available. I paired it with The Amulet of Renari, which I mentioned I’d like to bring back individually. Everwood isn’t quite as long as Renari (just about 4000 words), but enough to fill out the paperback book. I love the idea of individual stories instead of collections, but there’s an obvious logistical problem when dealing with shorts and paperbacks. Although Renari is actually almost 20k, so it’s not exactly flash fiction.
Regardless of all that—I was digressing--Everwood combined delightfully with Renari. They really balance each other, yet they’re also similar in their mood of gentle fantasy with just a hint of magic. And there’s a thread of comedy in Everwood—just the least little touch. The Tower-Maiden is sweet, but she really can be humorless at times . . . well, you’ll see when you read it. This will be the free ebook for June. Everwood has never been published, so it adds a bit of something new to the Renari release and puts it in a nice direction.
There’s an Amulet of Renari & Everwood page on the website now. I took down Jurant since I don’t want too many pages overwhelming visitors, as I’ve talked about before. The Jurant book is still available on Amazon though.
And there will be more updates.
I live surrounded by cultivated fields that rapidly give way to wild flowers, wild plants, and wild life. I get most of my ideas while drifting innocuously around my house and some of those ideas get into print.
