#Writinglessons: Embarrassment – A Storytelling Device

Empire is one of the scripted television shows that I enjoy watching. Check out my post on the shows I indulged in last year. The show is a combination of several things I enjoy watching – it’s got a lot of drama, high levels of family conflict (I grew up watching Dallas with my mom in the ’80s), ratchet galore (uh, I watch LHH and the Real Housewives franchise) and fabulous clothes!

#instafreebie – Read The Proem For Free

This Valentine’s season, I’d like to offer my short story, THE PROEM, for free.

It’s a prequel to THE PURSUAL and introduces the main characters in the series and specifically, highlighting when Neith and Invier meet. That introduction is the ball that gets the entire Nome Chronicles series rolling.

Want a free copy?

Grab it HERE.

And if you’d like an advance copy of THE PURSUAL as well, just become a VIP buddy by clicking here.

Introducing … Bel

We’ve met Neith, Invier and Landen Sohr already and now it’s time for another character to receive a proper introduction.

Please welcome Bel!

Her name is short for Belema and she’s Neith’s best friend. They’ve grown up together and their families are very close.

Bel often acts as the voice of reason for her bestie and has different ideas on certain aspects of the world they live in. You’ve got to read the books to see how what happens with her and her relationships.
