The Witch's Diary Audiobook
I am over-the-moon excited to announce that there is now an audiobook version of The Witch's Diary! Tyche Books organized this amazing unabridged edition which is narrated by Tara Yelle.
Themes of diversity and disability are woven throughout this novel, so it was particularly important to myself and Tyche Books that it be accessible to as many readers as possible. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did! There's nothing quite like hearing your written words spoken aloud in someone else's voice. Tara Yelle did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life.
Home for the Howlidays
Rebecca has a new short story out in Tyche's Home for the Howlidays anthology edited by M.L.D. Curelas!

Pirates! Cats! It doesn't get any better than that!
I was immediately psyched by the concept for Swashbuckling Cats and knew I had to contribute a story, but what? Then an idea emerged. A story of suspense, revenge, bloodshed, and daring on the high seas. A pirate with a soft heart and a lost soul in need of healing.
My story turned out far better than I expected (with a little help from Adriaan on the one action sequence - He doesn't even like action movies, but he's got a knack for action scenes) and I'm so glad it was selected to be part of this awesome anthology so you can all read it.
100 Word Horrors II
I'm not a big fan of horror, so I really thought my first horror drabble in the first 100 Word Horrors anthology would be my last, but when the call to contribute to the second instalment in the series came around, both Rebecca and I found we had some great and terrifying ideas. So here we are again amongst this fine crew of horror writers.
For a while, I've had this vague idea for a quirky, gender-bending story about a royal child, and the guard assigned to protect them from assassination. When I saw the call for the 'Askew' series of Anthologies, I thought, here's a venue that might appreciate my quirky story idea, and I was right!
"Broken Bonds" is the first short story I've been able to place in an anthology. I'm excited to get my name out there!
100 Word Horrors! - An Anthology of Drabbles
We have both (Rebecca and Adriaan) had a 'drabble' ( a 100 word flash fiction ) accepted in a new anthology hosted by Kevin J. Kennedy. Neither of us had ever written flash fiction before, let alone a drabble with its specific word length. Coming up with an idea, and then fitting it into exactly a hundred words was a fun challenge.
