The railroad in Denmark still extends only from Copenhagen to Korsör; it is a string of pearls. Europe has a wealth of these pearls; its most costly are named Paris, London, Vienna, Naples. And yet many a man will point out as his favorite pearl not one of these great cities but rather some little country town that is still the home of homes to him, the home of those dearest to him. Yes, often it is not a town at all, but a single homestead, a little house, hidden among green hedges, a place hardly visible as the train speeds by.
This is the fairy tale my Beyond Fairytales story was based on! I’ll be perfectly honest, the story itself is quite dull. However, it provided the images, setting, and groundwork for Soul Solution, so I was happy to take it from there and liven things up!
Soul Solution comes out July 24th! Don’t miss it!
For Erik Anderson, Copenhagen Station was the beginning of a chain—the start of his route. These were stops he’d traveled for ages while the seasons cycled and the years faded to dust. He’d passed his time long ago, but final rest lay far off for him. Sell your soul to a death dealer, and you don’t get rewarded with a steak dinner. He’d struck the bargain, and he was serving his sentence; to collect a thousand souls.
This is an intense, darker story, and one I’m thrilled to share. Soul Collectors, forbidden love, and a gorgeous, lush adventure through the Copenhagen line!
Erik sat in his dank apartment the next evening and gulped down a cup of day old coffee in his pre-club preparation. Mina had gotten inside his head, because last night, and the one before flickered through his brain like a movie reel. He should’ve told her to piss off, and he tried—but all that accomplished was a laugh from her and sparking challenge in her eyes. The problem with that woman was the sheer fact that she understood him when no one else could. He caught it there, the intelligence in her eyes as she peered through his defense mechanisms, and as she battled her way through his barriers.
Look forward to this fairytale, which will be submission-ready soon!
Since I’m almost finished with the Beyond Fairytales challenge: String of Pearls, I thought I’d share a snippet!
He opened his mouth, but stopped. He had nothing to counter with, because at the heart of it. She was right. Unfortunately he’d lost his chance to choose a long time ago. He had too much of his debt to repay still and no end in sight, meaning he was trapped in this miserable existence. Dabbling with her had been a mistake, simply because getting a taste of true happiness was exquisite pain once stolen away.
Stay tuned, kids! More updates, news, and sneak peeks on the way
Just wanted to update folks on progress!
I’m trucking through the Beyond Fairytales story, my twist on String of Pearls. It’s a lot of fun so far and I’m hoping readers will enjoy.
Once finished, I’ll work on editing my scifi pirate adventure, one that I’m excited to revisit and work on.
However, after that, I’m not sure where to go next since I’ve got several things brewing around.
I’ve been asked by multiple people for a sequel to An Airship Named Desire and I even have a concept for the second book. I also have a twist on Arthurian legend that I’ve been working on for years. I love the base concept and I’ve ALWAYS loved Arthurian legend, so I’m considering rewriting the piece.
