Five-Thing Thursday: September 7th.

Welcome to another Installment of Five-Thing Thursday!

Here are Five Things that I want you to know:

Thing #1: In case you missed it – or if you’re new here (Welcome!) I’ve got a new book out! Crimson Whisper is the first in a series of books I’m collectively calling the Wainwright and Holliday Adventures:

In an ongoing effort to thwart the villainous Order of the Sanguine Hand, Agents Lydia Wainwright and Keilah Holliday of Her Majesty’s Bureau of Preternatural Affairs journey to the remote Congo to investigate a potential threat of unknown origin, identified only as Crimson Whisper.

Embarking upon the airship, the Grand Enterprise, they are soon beset by strange encounters, including a most unexpected attack resulting in more questions… and three corpses.

Will they be in time to foil the Order’s nefarious plans?

Or even escape the jungle alive?

Brace yourself for another harrowing Wainwright and Holliday Adventure.

You can find an excerpt here!

Thing #2: I am very ready for Fall – though I admit that I’m kind of surprised that it’s September already. 

Thing #3: A journey of a Thousand miles begins with a single step…so does the rest of your life.

Thing #4: What’s playing on the Mental Jukebox today: Awakened from Nothing by Seven Kingdoms

Thing #5: In just over 24 hours the 2023 Rugby World Cup will kick off in France – with New Zealand v. France. Talk about starting things off with a bang!


What am  I reading this week?

Furious Heaven by Kate Elliott

Minimum Wage Magic by Rachel Aaron

How have I been relaxing and refilling the well?

I am finding that being more willing to “Go with the Flow” has had beneficial effects. By all means, if something is trying to push you in a direction you don’t want to go, push the hell right back. What I’m talking about is more like the smaller variations in the day-to-day. Run with those more, you never know where they’ll take you.


If you’ve read, and enjoyed any of my books, please consider leaving a review:

Until then…

Be safe. Be Excellent to each other.
