Cover Reveal! Two Novellas

My next book is going to be two novellas, Towards the Light and The Mad Quest.  They both started as serial replies to Sue Vincent‘s #writephoto prompts, and ended up being 30-35K novellas.  I hope to release in mid-April, but there is no set date.  yet.

What do you you think?


(Note – I am traveling and thing this is an old version of the blurb :(  Will put an updated version up later.)


Brandon finds himself down the rabbit hole and into a new reality where he is captured by Dwarves, gets involved in “Elemental Politics” and finds himself in a race to save the worlds – yes worlds, six, perhaps seven – and the peoples of those worlds in the tongue-in-cheek Fantasy novella, “Towards the Light”.

Lorounce, a “not only is the glass half empty, but the longer we talk about it, the more that evaporates” kind of guy, is on a reconnaissance mission with his childhood friend and secret crush, Merla, to enter the stronghold of the evil Lord of Darkness.  The mission soon spins off on an adventure to try to rescue the prince, find and confront the dragon to secure the magic sword and then raise an army to defeat the evil one with said magic sword all while being chased not only by the minions of the evil one, the dreaded Snow Demons, but their own people as well. Whew.  It is totally impossible, mad even, but with some unexpected help and a few twists along the way, maybe they could pull it off, this adventure called “The Mad Quest”.

“Towards the Light” and “The Mad Quest” are two fast paced, farcical Fantasy novellas.  With visible winks and nods to the great Fantasy works that came before, but with a few unexpected twists to keep you guessing, these two stories are light-hearted valentines to those classic works of the past; love notes but with pokes in the ribs and “bunny-ears” behind the head fun.

    Love it when a writer takes blog
    And can work it into a larger work- maybe this is what more
    Writers should do.
    The cover looks like a dress and lady’s arm in the air – but then I see the fire and beast-
    Colorful and unique

      For some reason I seem to get stuck in these serial stories – I have two or three full length novels and a handful of novellas (these two are the longest) that I’ve posted so far. I haven’t had time to do much writing “off-line” ;)

      Dress? Hmm, I’m not sure if I see it. The idea was to be almost cartoonish, since the stories are, in ways, almost cartoonish, or at least they don’t take themselves very seriously.
