Can she do it?

April 18, 2022

New release: Lady Blackwing Gets Her Moniker

With her words, she created a crisis. Does she have the power to fix it?

Mercedes is just trying to make her way through life: taking classes, working her shift as a barista, and, when she can squeeze it in, writing short stories. Inoculated with a pencil favored by her literary heroes, she finds herself imbued with startling abilities. She can write the imagined future into existence and rewrite the past but with disastrous consequences.

When a hate crime erupts in her neighborhood, Mercedes is certain that it’s her fault. But does she have the power to right the wrong?

It’s Lady Blackwing’s second exploit. You can find her first here.

New not new

April 1, 2022

When is “new” not new? When it’s a new cover.

There wasn’t anything wrong with the original cover, which has its fans. It did hint at the setting (an office) and pictured an important feature (a yo-yo). Still, in the intervening years, I’ve learned a lot about what makes an attractive, engaging book cover, and One Bad Apple called for an update.

I did hesitate to make the change but author friends assured me that it was fine to do a refresh, as long as I let faithful readers know this isn’t a new title, simply a new cover. So if you recall reading this ebook, originally published in 2016, know that the story hasn’t changed, only the cover.

What got me thinking about it is that I’ve been working with this tale. Because while the story isn’t new, I am launching a new edition. Now, in addition to reading One Bad Apple, you will be able to have it read to you. Available now for preorder is the audio edition, which is brand new. You can find it on Google Play Books/Audiobooks and Kobo Audiobooks. One Bad Apple audiobook launches officially on May 3, 2022.

If you prefer to read, the ebook edition is available on Kindle and in epub and other formats in other bookstores, where you might still see the old cover, pictured at the right.

So, ebook or audiobook, the choice is yours!

And gosh, if I didn’t fall in love with the main character all over again. So who knows? In the future, there may be a new story too.

Now it can be told

March 11, 2022

We are proud to announce our first audiobook.

It’s Murder by the Book, a mystery mini-read.

We’re calling this a soft launch because we’ve hardly told anyone else about it besides you. Not because we’re embarrassed about it; we’re quite pleased. Our first audiobook! It wasn’t something we planned on. Well, not for this week anyway. So we don’t have a huge promotional campaign in the works. But the opportunity presented itself. We hope you have as much fun with this as we did. (You’ll need the Google Play for Books app and possibly a Gmail address to listen.)

In the course of doing this, we discovered writing something to be narrated is different from writing something to be read. More on that later but for now, enjoy listening.
