Between Lost & Found – a short faerie tale

Hello my pretty little weirdos
Some of you may know (and some not) about my short story I have been posting on my blog, chapter by chapter – Between Lost & Found. I have recently just published the entire thin directly on Smashwords (and Barnes and Noble and iBooks and KOBO because Smashwords is awesome like that and just publishes your stuff there for you 🤘)
So, if you have been reading along and would like to know what happens to the girl and the beautiful dracorlla, Lady Kavain, please click here and download the ebook for free. If you haven’t been reading along then you are in luck because you don’t have to wait a week or two in between chapters! Authors live off reviews so pretty please (with a cherry and whipped cream and fucking sprinkles and everything on top) leave an honest review.

Like A Boss – guest blog by A. Renee Hunt

Hello, my pretty little weirdos!
Over the next few months, I will be posting, semi-regularly, some guest blogs from people that I absolutely love. These wonderful humans all have something to say and all are amazing. They are all a little bit weird too. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t get along with them too well!
So, without any further, unnecessary dribble from me, here is the beautiful Book Blogger, Reviewer, Author and full-time goddess…
Hello! My name’s Alyssa, but I normally go by my pen name, A. Renee Hunt. This guest post, thanks to the lovely Adelise, is on my very first mistake when it comes to the wonderful world of publishing.
First, let me state that by no means do I consider myself a professional. It took me a long time to get to where I am today, and believe me- it’s not where I thought I’d be. I endured two major trials before taking my stand as an author today. I’m independent, I have total control and I’m can truly state: I’ve sold more books now than I have my entire career, which began five years ago! So what did I do? That’s number two…

Searching For The Silent Lady – a kickarse, piratey adventure story…

So, I wrote The Silent Lady originally for a friend. It was her birthday and I was poor. She is a weirdo, like me, and has a thing for pirates. So, I thought I would write her a story about a little girl that doesn’t fit in and then she finds out she is actually a kind of pirate queen/demi-goddess. Because that is what we all secretly want to be, right? A take-no-prisoners, save-the-world, water-god kind of gal. Lol.

LIFEL1K3 pitch

Originally posted on Jay Kristoff – Literary Giant:
Hello writer droogs, I often get asked if things get easier once you’re published, and if selling one book makes it easier to sell the next. Truth is, the answer is “yes and no”. Authors still need to pitch their next book to their publisher and hope…

The Wolves of Mercy Falls and monster tropes

Hello my weirdos I (sorta) recently finished reading The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Maggie Stiefvater and this series was no different. I really enjoy her easy style of writing. It is smooth and flowing. I don’t have to read back over anything. And it is easy without…

Between Lost & Found – Chapter 8

The girl bathed in the stream nearby her little home. The water was fresh and cool on her skin. For a while she simply stood there, feeling the stream as it ran past, caressing her little, naked body. She tried to scrub her body – face, hair, fingers, nails, toes – to get them sparkling…

Dreams, Nightmares and dream logic: can writers use them?

We have all had those moments: We wake from some kick arse dream and say to ourselves “Self, that kick arse dream would make a kick arse book.” So, we write that shit down on anything we can find on our bedside table. In the morning, sometime in the waking moments after coffee number 3 we remember said kick arse dream. But what was it about? Fuck, you genius! You wrote that down! So you go back to bed and find the written down stroke genius you can thank your subconscious for and … what is this? “IV drip. Morphine. House fire. Peter Quill. Hokey Pokey ice cream.” WTF brain! You used to be cool!

Between Lost & Found – Chapter 7

The girl ran through the woods. She jumped over fallen trees and ducked under low hanging limbs. She heard the thundering footsteps behind her and tried to pick up the pace. One of the dogs ran past her and the rest followed. The pack had grown but were still clumsy with their big paws and…
