ACCIDENTAL SORCERESS is finally out. (Book 2 of Hardstorm Saga) I'm so excited!!

Amazon UK:

Tera, a powerful healer, travels with her beloved warrior, the High Lord Batumar, on a secret mission to forge alliances to stop the bloodthirsty Emperor Drakhar. Surviving vicious pirates, slave traders, and an ancient enemy of dark power is only the beginning. The journey brings Tera unimaginable hardships and loss, testing her spirit and heart as she gathers her own allies and fulfills her destiny. Adding a tiger and a wraith as companions on her journey, Tera struggles to survive with her wits and healing skills while protecting her light from the dark power that seeks to claim her.

The book is finally up for sale! (99c) THANK YOU so much for all your feedback here. I have enjoyed your notes and encouragement tremendously. And, because of you, the book received a new ending!

If you have a moment, would you consider leaving a review online? Even a sentence would be helpful. Since this is an updated reissue, I lost all my old reviews. Oh, that hurts. I had over 140!

Google Play:

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! --Dana

If all goes well, I'll be uploading RELUCTANT CONCUBINE to Amazon and all other retailers tomorrow. This means that I have to remove the book from here or I'll be in breach of contract. So if you're reading the book, hurry!

FWIW, I'll keep the book at 99c so it won't be expensive to download it. :-)

another update

Tomorrow's post is going to be late too.

The editor convinced me to delete 2 of the 3 final chapters. Which means the remaining chapter must be heavily rewritten. I worked on it today, and I need to work on it a lot more tomorrow. I'll post it when I have it.

Nothing like a creative crisis at the last possible moment. But the editor is right. Those scenes slowed the pacing. At one point, I'll probably post the cut chapters either here or my web site. At the moment, I'm just too frazzled. I thought the book was done!

THANK YOU for all your comments! All that positive energy makes a huge difference and keeps me going.

I might be late with posting tomorrow, as I need to do a ton of things. But I plan on posting 3 or 4 chapters. I hope to have them up by tomorrow evening.

In the meanwhile,what do you think about the new bookmarks that just came in? Email me with BOOKMARK in the subject line, and I'll pick 20 people who will receive a signed bookmark in the mail. :-) (

For D.F. Jules

YES!! I said from the beginning that if these books are made into a movie, I'd like Jason Momoa to play Batumar. When he was cast for Game of Thrones, I kept saying, "NO, NO, NO! He is MY Batumar!" LOL
