One Turn of The Wheel

I have some really exciting news that I want to share with you all today.  My first little book, One Turn of The Wheel, has just been published by Three Drops Press.

Isn’t the cover beautiful…

Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn – so the wheel turns. 
As they journey through the seasons, readers of all ages are invited to meet nature deities, a bewildered changeling, loving families who stick together, so-called friends who cannot be trusted, goblins, wizards, vengeful witches, helpful witches, and many others besides. Right at home in the long folk and fairy tale tradition, these are stories for enjoying year after year, and in all weathers.

You can learn more about One Turn of The Wheel, by following this link to the publisher’s website, where you can also read one of the stories from the collection, The Goblin Dance.  (If perchance you do, please, please, please let me know what you think!)

I can’t thank Kate from Three Drops Press enough for all her hard work.  This has been such a fun and exciting experience.

I shall have to think how to celebrate – maybe with a book launch right here on the blog?  If you have any ideas, please let me know!

One Turn of The Wheel can be purchased through Lulu.

The Water Wytch – my first piece in print!

I am still in shock, I think…

Back in the middle of April I submitted a short story to a print anthology.  It was my first attempt at doing so.  Fear and nerves were largely responsible for not trying before hand.  But for once, instead of giving into the fear, I pushed on through and submitted anyway…

And look what happened.  I got a short story published – in print!  I admit, I waited until the day my contributors copy of the book arrived (yesterday) before I dared to believe it really happened, spending the weeks in between waiting to be told there had been some kind of mistake.  But, it’s here, in black and white…The Water Wytch

It came with a pretty bookmark too, placed on the first page of my story.  What a lovely touch.  Those people at Zimbell House Publishing are great.elemental foundations bookmark

I still can’t believe it.  I can’t wait to read the other eight tales of elemental magic, next to which my own sits humbly, but no less proud.  Dreams really can come true…
