FROZEN, Chapter 10 (The End!)

FROZEN, Chapter 10 (The End!)

Whee!! Seventeen days from the start, I finally hit the end. I wasn’t able to keep my daily schedule, so I’m going to keep this up a little longer after the finish than I originally intended. It’ll be here until Tuesday night, then I’ll take it down, but don’t worry! I expect that I’ll have(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 9.1

FROZEN, Chapter 9.1

I know, I know! You’re thinking: Chapter Nine Point WTF??? But I’m just about to hit my mid-afternoon “go pick up the kid and take her to TKD and don’t have time to work for hours” break, and Chapter 10 isn’t quite done, and this has been bothering the heck out of me. So I’m(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 9

FROZEN, Chapter 9

Ugh, sorry again. For those wondering what the hell happened to my daily posts, it comes down to two factors: 1) I expected that the start of this school year would mean a lot more time during the day to work (it usually does) and I was wrong wrong WRONG. So wrong I want to(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 8 (finally!)

FROZEN, Chapter 8 (finally!)

Okay, so — thank you for your patience! This chapter ended up being much longer than I’d anticipated, even after moving the original scene at the end to the next chapter. So, hey! The good news is that the next chapter is already almost completed thanks to this one taking me so long. So I(…)

Post of Shame (Chapter 8 will post tonight instead of at noon)

Post of Shame (Chapter 8 will post tonight instead of at noon)

It’s four-thirty in the morning, I’ve been up for an hour already, yet the final pages of this chapter aren’t coming together as quickly as I’d like. So I’m going to admit that all of the not-writing stuff from this week caught up with me, and I won’t be finished with this chapter by noon. Now I have to decide between(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 7

FROZEN, Chapter 7

Chapter 7So I was finally getting my dinner with Erik. When I’d called him up eight months ago and asked him out, this wasn’t really how I’d pictured it going. It was after midnight, and in the past twelve hours I’d only had half a protein bar; my hunger had returned with a growling vengeance,(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 6

FROZEN, Chapter 6

Frozen is coming early today, just because I’m so awesome! (Actually, it’s because it’s the first day of school and I’m going to be running around like crazy and if it doesn’t post correctly automatically then I won’t know it until much later tonight, and that would suck.) So, whoo! Chapter 6The snow arrived just(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 5

FROZEN, Chapter 5

Chapter 5Despite agreeing to try, Erik didn’t immediately follow me into the house. One look back at him told me why. Shattered ice lay in heaps near his feet. It no longer encased his arms and legs, no longer helped him maintain control—and the effort showed. He stood with his head down and his hands(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 4

FROZEN, Chapter 4

Chapter 4 Where was he? My gaze searched the shadows between the trees again. The moon had risen with the setting of the sun and silvery light flooded the clearing in front of the house. Everything beyond the clearing lay in darkness. Almost an hour had passed without a sign of Erik, the Hounds, or(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 3

FROZEN, Chapter 3

Chapter 3 Erik abruptly halted, his gaze fixed to the south. His arms constricted around me before he lowered my feet to the ground. With his hand at my waist, he tucked me protectively against his side. I slipped off my woolen gloves. Never taking my eyes from the trees alongside the driveway, I reached(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 2

FROZEN, Chapter 2

Chapter 2 My step faltered. That wasn’t ice. That was fury. Erik stopped three yards away. Even at that distance, his height was overwhelming. He stared down at me. His eyes didn’t seem glacial now, but burning with hot blue flames. “Turn around.” The words were as rough as gravel. “Get the fuck out of(…)

FROZEN, Chapter 1

FROZEN, Chapter 1

Chapter 1This couldn’t be the right driveway. I pulled my Jeep onto the shoulder and checked the rearview mirror. No one was coming up the snowy road behind me. I hadn’t spotted another car since leaving the main highway, and the only evidence that anyone ever came this way were the tire tracks leading into(…)

THE BLOG POST OF SHAME (i.e., Where’s FROZEN?)

THE BLOG POST OF SHAME (i.e., Where’s FROZEN?)

Starting tomorrow at noon, it’s going to be on this blog … one chapter at a time. It’s not a serial. It’s a cattle prod up my ass. So here’s the deal with FROZEN: I’ve been trying to write it for almost two years now (not constantly, because there were other things like Guardian Demon and(…)

FAQ: Pre-Order info for The Kraken King (the whole thing)

I’ve gotten a couple of questions about the compiled version of The Kraken King, because links have shown up at various bookstores. I haven’t seen any typeset pages or additional edits yet, but looking at the bookstore catalogs, it looks like: Info for the print/compiled version: Release Date: November 4, 2014 Length: 576 pages Print(…)
