About that Mystery Project

Some of you may have noticed the progress bars on my website. If you didn’t, this is what was there for the past three months.

Mystery Project Progress Bar

 

I’ve been working on “Witch’s Path World Mystery Project” since the middle of July. With that title you might have thought it was a full length Logan novel. It isn’t.

Let me introduce you a new series in Michelle’s world, one I hope you’ll love as much as I do.

Earth Born

A Dragon Lands Mystery

At twenty-two years old Shasta Oaks finally has her first job with the family business, Oaks Consulting. However, instead of tracking down criminals, she’s in the Dragon Lands of Wyoming teaching adolescent dragons how to behave should they venture into the rest of the country. Some groups are better than others. The current lot is not better. In fact, they keep falling out of the sky. It’s a good thing she’s a half-elf half-witch or she’d have some very squished dragons on her hands.

With such an straightforward job, it could’ve been the solo assignment she requested. Instead Oaks Consulting, and more accurately her parents, gave her a partner. Cord is a perfectly nice elf, but he’s hiding something. Even though it’s causing strain in their relationship, she isn’t inclined to discuss the issue. Shasta has a secret of her own, one she’s spent her entire life hiding, and she’s afraid he’ll ask questions she can’t answer.

When one of her dragons goes missing, Shasta quickly discovers that the job isn’t as safe as everyone thought. There’s evil brewing in the Dragon Lands. If she wants to save the dragons, she’ll have to embrace the parts of her she’d been hiding and show the world the real Shasta.

Earth Born will be released January 2018.

A Witch’s Demons Released!

 

For months Michelle has known another demon would come after her. What she doesn’t know is that it’s already stalking her friends, hunting her colleagues. Instead, her attention has been focused on learning all she can about witch clans, the engagement ring on her finger, and why Elron won’t set a wedding date.

Elron has a secret, one he’s afraid could ruin his relationship with Michelle. He knows the demon has arrived. He knows it’s only a matter of time before it strikes.

When a detective from a neighboring town calls Michelle, some secrets will be revealed, but will she discover the demon in time to protect the people she loves? Will she survive a fight not just for her life but for her very identity, the core of what makes her a witch?

A Witch’s Demons (Witch’s Path Book 6) is now available at Amazon!

Box Set and New Audio

A Witch’s Path Books 1 – 3 are now in one tidy boxset available now at Amazon!

Along with the ebook, the audiobook box set, completely remastered with more than 20 hours of fun, is available at Audible and Amazon.

This fall production will start on the audiobook versions of A Witch’s Concern, A Witch’s Rite, and A Witch’s Demons. The next three books will have the same narrator for the male roles, but a new narrator for Michelle. Over the next couple of months I should have all sorts of fun things like live streamed audio recordings.

Oceanside Released!

 

Years after suffering a devastating loss, Robert has built a good life. It isn’t overflowing with happiness or joy, but he’s content with his jewelry business, house near the ocean, and daily walks on the beach.

Rather, he was content until one blustery day when he meets a woman playing in the shallows. Celia reminds him of his past and the joy he lost. Her enchanting smile and love for the ocean give him hope that life could be more than one mildly satisfying day after another.

When she vanishes, he watches the waves, and waits. He knows her secret, the one that could be keeping her away, and has a secret of his own. Will their secrets draw them together or tear them apart?

Oceanside is a stand-alone short story in the Witch’s Path World Series.
