Free Book! “The Broken Heart”

Cover art for The Broken Heart

My short story “The Broken Heart” is free for the next few days on the Zon. It’s the first thing I published and a fun intro the my Bennett Bay world.

Writing Update: Still waiting for my beta readers to get back to me about “The Bear, the Witch, and the Web,” the follow-up to “Dark Love.” Seems everyone suddenly got a life! I’m still banging away at the third book in what I’m now calling The Live Oak Tales. Looks like I’m having a mini-series in the midst of the larger series. I really didn’t expect to be writing so much paranormal or urban fantasy stuff when I set up this world. It just keeps creeping in. The dragons are taking a larger role in Hunter Moon and I’m trying to get my head and the plot around that. Love being a pantser… don’t know what the story is really about until I type “The End.”

I want to thank you all for taking the time to read my blog and hope you all have a good time marking the start of winter in whatever manner you do it. I have the Solstice off this year, so I’ll be lighting a candle and doing some reflecting. Maybe I write something about it!

Pax,
Stephen
