Improve a scene: Urban Fantasy story

I’m currently reading an urban fantasy tale. It’s all part of developing a stronger understanding of the expected Tropes in that genre so I can write stronger stories.

Anyway, the book is super fast-paced. WOW! As in if a story is supposed to have peaks and valleys, this one is all peaks. There’s very little time to breathe. I know authors are told to pace their stories and the action in their stories but something tells me breakneck tales are beloved by a large number of readers.

FFJ’s Freebies! April 17th, 2018

I was in cave mode last week and neglected to put up a list of freebies. For that reason, this week’s freebie list is twice as long! Here’s hoping you find something of interest and enjoy some good reads.

That being said, FFJ’s Freebies are brought to you by The Paragon, Book 3 of The Nome Chronicles series. Available for sale on Amazon and free for Kindle Unlimited users.

When love turns to hate, is there a way back?

Since her father’s death and the subsequent betrayal, Neith trusts no one. She has learned to be ruthless and will do whatever it takes to defeat anyone in her way. Having once loved Invier only adds to her determination to crush him.

Invier can’t believe the girl he sacrificed so much for wants him dead, and he’s desperate to convince Neith he’s not her enemy. But her threat is not his only concern, nor is she the only one he needs to save. In the end, finding a solution might require him to resort to the very tool he hates—violence—and, he may need to kill the one he loves.

Invier and Neith’s struggles will bring them head to head in a final and deadly showdown as The Nome Chronicles come to a thrilling conclusion in THE PARAGON.

LegionBorn: trilogy or longer?

Sigh.

As a writer, there is no end to the stories I have in my head. The main hindrance to those stories coming to be is time. There just isn’t enough of it.

Oh, and money. There’s never enough of that either. And if I’m to be honest, money becomes the most important factor when I consider how deep a series will go, sadly.

You see, if the book isn’t pulling it’s weight then that’s an indicator that the book doesn’t have an audience and thus doesn’t deserve to go on and on and on.

And so, here I am wondering whether or not my current baby–LegionBorn–should go past book 3. Continue reading “LegionBorn: trilogy or longer?”
