Two weeks ago my laptop failed.
Everything was backed up, and will be restored. But the poor little laptop had to make its way via slow-moving trucks to Memphis, where it sat alone on Thanksgiving while the repair technicians ate turkey.
I finally have my (working!) laptop back, but this interruption means Lúnasa Days will be delayed.
I really want to release it before the holidays, but with only weeks to spare that may not be possible. The publication schedule depends not just on me, but on how quicky it can be edited and laid out.
However, I don’t want to leave you hanging. I know that many of you have become patrons of my novella and want to see it succeed. Plus, you want to read it!
So, as a special thank you to all of you and to make up for the delay, this Sunday I’m releasing a short story for all of my patrons.
If you’re already a patron, this story is totally free. It’ll arrive by noon Sunday.
If you’re not a patron, what are you waiting for? Patronage comes with a bunch of benefits, plus you help support a traveling writer who entertains you. And now there’s a bonus story!
The story is about a lonely girl, her flying castle, and a Very Bad Day.
Down below the castle would sit perfectly still for the first time since it was built. And the stillness would last only a minute, maybe three, till the beasts from the woods came loping out. They would swarm over its gardens and courtyards and verandas. They’d leap through its broken windows and hanging doors, and they would seek out anyone hiding inside and rip them to little pieces and eat them. And Una didn’t need to see that ever again.
Not until it was her turn.
Interested? Become a patron and you’ll get the whole story.
