Cover Reveal for Bren

Bren has a simple assignment – to deal with a coven who’s killed too many locals. When he takes a victim’s phone as a trophy, he becomes fascinated with the story of her death – almost too fascinated.

Blaming Mom or Why Did I Even Write an Outline?

Yeah, so as you might know, I’m working on the last book in my series. There was so much that needed done in as few drafts as possible, that I spent two or three days sorting everything out and making an outline. It wasn’t a super specific outline, more like:

Go to such a place. Need to talk to so-and-so about what’s-and-all. Such and such needs to happen. Such info needs imparted for X reason. Go to another place.

You can see it’s pretty loose – but my characters still – STILL – cannot stick to it. Someone who was supposed to live – who was in fact integral for the ending – got themselves killed, someone who was supposed to die skipped out on it and are still trucking along, which has had a big impact future books (unless I manage to kill them later, which I doubt). An event…

Goddess of Night News

First I have to announce that the publication date for Goddess of Night has changed. I’ve never moved a publishing date before, because I hate when people do that, but if I don’t, this book will not be properly edited. Period. Because it’s the last book and there are so many things I want to wrap up, I’ve had to restart it three times (this last time stuck, thank goodness!) but because of that, the rough draft isn’t  finished. There is no way I can get it done, edited, and off to beta readers, and then have time to implement their suggestions by the end of March. Not if you want a good book – and I know you do.

The new publishing date is April 30, 2017. I hadn’t set pre-orders up yet, so there’s nothing that is effected by it. I will probably do that in the next few weeks, after I have the cover reveal.

I can reveal the symbol for the chapter headings, though:

symbol

It’s a symbol used in a Goddess of Night ritual. I could get all bizarre on you with a bunch of symbolism (yeah, I made it up as I was working on it, because you can’t have a credible symbol unless you know why it is the way it is) but I’ll leave you to make your own inferences.

And as a bonus, here is the pretty snazzy new cover image for my Facebook author page:

gon-reveal-coming

 

And don’t forget that Saturday is the Very Vamp-y Valentines Party on facebook, co-hosted by myself and the talented Maegan Provan! More on that tomorrow.

Are you excited for the new book? What do YOU hope happens in it?

Gynoid: To Be Published!!!

Free sci-fi goodness on Wattpad!

Rami Ungar The Writer

Well, I’m very excited that something I’ve been wanting to do since the New Year is about to happen. Now, some of you may remember Gynoid, a science-fiction novelette I wrote nearly a year-and-a-half ago about a guy who buys a robot that looks like a human girl, a gynoid (the female equivalent of an android), in order to become more sexually experienced. What results from this move is the basis of this story. I’ve tried getting it published in magazines, but the ones that allow larger word counts rejected it, so I put it aside.

I think I might have mentioned it before, but my New Year’s Resolution for this year is to get more people into reading my work, and one of the ways I can do this is through Wattpad, which is like the YouTube for writers. People upload their stories, and other people read them. I…

Beldren – Cover Reveal

It’s here! The new cover for Beldren’s Tale of the Executioners!

The year is 1687 in the fourth Tale of the Executioners. Beldren, a former indentured servant, suffers the same fate as many others of his kind – the promised land and money never materialized, despite having done their time.

The Very True Legends of Old Man Wickleberry and his Demise

With the approach of Valentine’s Day the world is full of romance; roses, hearts, lovey-dovey pap. Blech! Or that’s what Ol’ Man Wickleberry would say! Are you tired of the love? The sex? The pink and red bedecked covers? Do you crave something different? Something funny? Something ghostly? Then look no further!

The Very True Legends of Ol’ Man Wickleberry and his Demise are here just in time! And they are FREE on Smashwords! and available on Amazon*

template.jpg

Ol’ Man Wickleberry is a man of legend – or is he a legend of a man? With a scruffy beard and a dislike for humanity, how long has it been since he met his demise, and what is he doing in his ghostly afterlife? The stories may differ, but all of them are true. We swear. So if you’re ever wandering alone in the woods at night, and find you’re not really alone, it just might be Ol’ Man Wickleberry.

Enjoy eight tales by seven talented authors including:

Vendetta by Chris Harris: Mr. Baker is on his way to steal a deal when he’s snowed in. Stuck waiting at a rustic tavern, he’s ambushed by an old man with a strange story – a story that’s beyond belief. Or is it?

Evil Animals and Automobiles by Mark R Hunter: Ol’ Man Wickleberry hates so much he sometimes prompts them to an untimely end, with the help of those newfangled automobiles. But the next victim might be Ol’ Man Wickleberry, himself.

The True Story of Ol’ Man Wickleberry by Jonathan Harvey: Jonathan Harvey puts the Terrible Turtle spin on the Wickleberry legend. He names himself Papa Harvey and weaves a tale that is strange and bizarre, but still interesting. If only he wasn’t constantly being interrupted.

Out Walking by Joleene Naylor: The mysterious carnivorous white rabbits sound too strange to be true, but Ol’ Man Wickleberry can’t stand the thought of missing some rare game. It seems a walk is in order…

Body Swap by Ruth Nordin: A teenage boy makes a trade with a man who was thought to be dead.

Weirdly Normal – The Hike by Simon Goodson: Vincent hates hiking. But more than anything else, he hates their guide’s endless wittering about the horribly scary myth of Ol’ Man Wickleberry. Just when Vincent is certain the night can’t get any worse… Ol’ Man Wickleberry himself makes an appearance!

Wickleberry Elixir by Terry Compton: Rick and his two fellow college students just wanted a few extra college credits and the money from the work study. Then the professor demanded more details. But details sometimes lead to answers no one really wants or believes.

Ol’ Man Wickleberry (The Other True Story) by Jonathan Harvey: Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O, and next to this farm lived Ol’ Man Wickleberry, E-I-E-I – Oh. It seems Ol’ Man Wickleberry doesn’t like these kind of goings ons. A short story that’s rhyming good fun.

So why wait? Join Ol’ Man Wickleberry for some grumpy free fun!

*The Very True Legends of Ol’ Man Wickleberry and his Demise is now sale on Amazon. Sadly they will charge $.99 until we can get them to price match.
