Wicked Graces: Chapter One

Ferventis, 9:38 Dragon—Seven miles south of Starkhaven

“Explain to me why you’re doing this again, Hawke. The Templars’ bluster is just that, bluster, and besides, once this coronation is over, there’ll be no turning back. You do realize that, right?”

Varric Tethras shifted in his saddle and coughed into his shoulder to hide the grunt of discomfort that followed. His backside throbbed, both legs felt numb, and the pulse of his sciatic nerve promised the two of them would be up half the night trying to find a comfortable sleeping position without the promise of a stiff drink to ease the pain. He didn’t care how fancy the pillows were—and he was sure they were going to be unbelievable—he would find no comfort at Castle Vael. Knowing Sebastian, the entire city was probably dry, which meant his stay was going to feel overly long, no matter if it lasted three days or three weeks.

He had no idea how Hawke would manage a life there. Not that she wasn’t legitimate by reputation and title to become Starkhaven’s princess, and she certainly had the drive and leadership skills to rein in a nation, but some people weren’t born to sit still and that made them somewhat apathetic when it came to thrones. She’d taken the mantle of Champion with pride, but her reluctance to accept the position as Viscountess of Kirkwall spoke volumes about how suitable she would likely be to rule Starkhaven with Sebastian. It seemed like the moment the Templars started pushing, her experience with the Knight-Commander made it easier for her to walk away, but she didn’t have to. She was viscountess, still in a position to govern and negotiate on Kirkwall’s behalf. And besides, she was going to die of boredom in that place. Much like the prince who’d reclaimed his rule, Varric imagined even the trappings in Starkhaven were snoozeworthy, which brought him back to the central point that launched his entire thought sequence: What in Andraste’s name were they doing there?

Hello from the Void

Wow. It’s been an age or more since I posted over here. I’ve been… sort of busy. Writing, not writing, working a lot. I was struggling a lot with my non-fanfiction writing for a while, so I stepped back into my fanfiction shoes and something’s pouring out of me right now that feels really good.

It takes place in the Dragon Age universe, so I may share it here when I feel confident it’s heading in the right direction.

In the meantime, I wanted to take a moment to just say hi and thank you to all the people who still come here and read my fanfictions. I wasn’t receiving notifications I had comments, so when I logged in I was surprised to find so many waiting for approval. My apologies for that. I will try to pay better attention in the future.

I hope you’re all well!

Siren is Now Available

It’s been a long time since I had a chance to update. I haven’t been working on much fanfiction lately because my actual fiction has to take priority. I’ve been really busy getting my newest book ready to go so I could send it out into the world. It released on Monday after an eight week pre-order period, and seems to be gathering some momentum.

If you enjoy my fanfiction, and would like to see what I’ve been doing since I became stiflingly silent, I’d love it if you checked out Siren. It’s available now on Amazon worldwide (see links below,) and will also be available as an audiobook from Audible sometime in the next couple months.

Here’s a brief synopsis for those of you who are interested:

Siren Talbot’s life is plagued with storms. Her mother’s insanity was the first, though not the last. Called to the ocean, not even the shores of Edisto Island can calm the tempest inside her. 


Though she’s settled into a life with Patrick, his promises of a happily ever after can’t still the foul weather of her past or the brewing squall on the horizon. She’s haunted by the disappearance of her first love, Carver, and the lack of answers. 

A single clue unlocks mysteries she can’t explain. A murder cements the impossible as possible. The more magic she uncovers, the darker her suspicions become and the more the hurricane inside her starts to rage. 

Patrick isn’t the Prince Charming he claims to be.

And he knows exactly what happened to Carver.

I’ve Got a New Book Coming Out!

Hey guys, I know I’ve been severely remiss in my fanfic updates. I have been so busy with editing clients and getting my new book ready to go live after the first of the year. I haven’t had much time to do anything beyond Scrivener and MS Word lately, but the hard work has definitely paid off.

I have a new urban fantasy book coming out, as I mentioned, and I hope you’ll drop by my other site to hear all about it, and maybe pre-order so you can gobble it up on your device when it goes live January 5.

You can catch the COVER REVEAL for SIREN right here: SIREN–COVER REVEAL

There’s a synopsis, of course, and if sounds like something you might be interested in reading I hope you’ll skip over to the pre-order page which is located here: PRE-ORDER SIREN

I’m also doing another urban fantasy book for NaNoWriMo this year. If you’re interested, you can check out the details on that here. With Dragon Age: Inquisition coming in less than two weeks, I am relatively sure there will be much in the way of squeeing, and probably some RIDE THE BULL fanfiction.

Hope you’re all doing well! I miss you guys when we don’t see each other in the ether.

Sorrow’s Peak is HERE!

Sorrow's Peak Cover NewYou’ve waited for months, but the wait is finally over. Sorrow’s Peak: Serpent of Time Book Two is FINALLY here!

Once a princess of Leithe, Lorelei was exiled from her homeland and led to the city of Dunvarak in the tundra of Rimian. The people of Dunvarak call her Light of Madra, and nearly every one of them has a story about the white hand of light who saved them from death during the War of Silence.

She is their savior, and being a savior is no small task. 

Charged with retrieving the fractured horns of the U’lfer god, Llorveth, from a long-dead dragon’s treasure hoard in the belly of Great Sorrow’s Peak, the half-bred U’lfer believe with the horns in hand they will finally be able to embrace the dormant wolf, and rise to stand beside their full-blooded brethren in the coming war with men. 

But there is more to Lorelei’s plight than simply retrieving the mystical horns of a silent god. She and her companions, Finn, an U’lfer warrior she shares a mate bond with, and a half-Alvarii mage named Brendolowyn, have made this journey before, and unless they can figure out where they went wrong in past cycles, time threatens to repeat itself for eternity. 

The adventure and the romance continue in Sorrow’s Peak!

Just a Quick Hello…

Hey guys, I just wanted to take a moment to leave a quick update for you. I know I’ve been a bit absent from here lately, but I’m still around. I try to post regularly on my main site, so if you’re not following me over there and want to keep in touch, please head over there and follow me everywhere.

I am not sure how much fanfiction I’m going to be writing. With a new book coming out in a week and a recent computer disaster, I haven’t been able to play games. My Alienware laptop took a shock to the senses, and the computer I am using now is only mildly geared up for gaming. I’m very sad, but hey, I’m getting a lot of non-fanfiction writing done. 99% of my fanfiction inspiration comes from being fully immersed in-game, so I’m hoping I can upgrade or repair by November because I have a feeling there will be a metric frakton of DA: Inquisition fanfiction coming your way.

Until then, I will try to update when I can so we don’t drift apart.
