I have a fantastical-fun announcement! Many of y’all who follow the blog know that I not only write nonfiction pet books, I also incorporate pet-centric themes and characters in suspense stories that feature pets–including a dog viewpoint character and trained cat. Now I have a chance to expand that notion in a brand new “world” of readers alongside a fantastic group of talented authors. My novella, as yet untitled, will launch in late December. If you want a chance to read and review it in advance, be sure to apply for my Triple A Team here.
I’ve been invited by best selling author Toby Neal to write a novella for her Lei Crime Kindle Worlds based on her Lei Crime Novels all set in Hawaii. Wow! She already as a fantastic team of authors with their own stand alone and series books, with the first group of novellas launched last April. The second wave, in some cases sequels to the first novella, launches today. Check it out here!
Kindle Worlds are short stories, novellas and full length books written in the “book world” created by a particular author. That may mean a continuation of an existing story with familiar characters, or taking a minor character and expanding/creating a new storyline. By writing in the Lei Crime Kindle World, I’ll have a chance to work with a fantastic team of other authors–including Toby herself!–to support each other and share our own work with those who already love reading Toby’s stories and characters.
For me, one of the deciding reasons to say yes has to do with Toby’s main character Lei and her relationship with her dog, a Rottweiler girl named Keiki! I’m still percolating on the story but it probably will be a “prequel” before Lei and Keiki connected. Y’all know how I love to write in young-dog “voice” LOL!
Of course, I must finish SHOW AND TELL first, and I’m nearly at the finish line on that 3rd book in the September Day series. Stay tuned for more fictioning news in the weeks and months ahead. The end of 2015 promises to be a roller coaster ride!
Meanwhile, I strongly encourage those who love mysteries, suspense, crime fiction and even contemporaries to check out the launch books today. You’re sure to get hooked–I know that I already am! Click this link now.
