If you follow this blog, you’ll know I’m participating in the NaNoWriMo 2019. And my project this year is a funny little story about a genie found in a whiskey jug.

So how about a little sneak preview from one of the earlier chapters? Remember, this is a very rough first draft, but here we go!

WHISKEY JUG GENIE

Eyes watering and trying to hold his breath, Martin finally got the front windows and the back door opened to let the stench out of his dwelling.

“Whew-wee!” he heard from the figure before him. “That was a good one. Been holding it for a long time.”

“What the hell are you?” he demanded.

The figure looked him over for a moment and then answered him with the strongest southern accent he’d ever heard.

“You can call me Bubba,” it said.

“I didn’t ask who you were. I asked what you were,” Martin demanded again.

The figure was about as tall as he was, around six feet, with dark curly hair, dark eyes, and a crooked smile.

“Don’t get your panties in a wad. You would call me a genie, though I prefer djinn.”

“Gin? I’m a Scotch man myself.”

“No, djinn.”

“Yeah, gin. I’ve got it.”

“Were you born slow, son? D-j-i-n-n. Djinn.”

“I thought you guys lived in bottles. Not whiskey jugs.”

“No, usually we live peacefully in caves, places like that. But we sometimes get trapped in things like bottles or jugs. And I’ll be tellin’ you, it ain’t pleasant.”

“Why are you here?” Martin asked, reaching for his Scotch.

“You bought my jug.”

“But if you’re free of the jug, why are you still here?”

All he needed was a magical roommate. Now how did he get rid of this guy–Bubba. What sort of name was Bubba?

“That’s where the curse comes in. Unless you can take off the curse, I’m bound to this dad-blamed thing forever. I don’t suppose you’re a wizard?”

“I dabble in white magic, but curses? Don’t know a thing about reversing them.”

“It figures. Somebody finally comes along, buys the darned thing, but can’t help a fella out. Story of my life. What have you got to eat around here?”

While you’re waiting, why not check out some of my other writing? All my books are available at Smashwords and Amazon.

Later this year, the next book from Gambler’s Folly will be out, so watch for The Russian, Book 3!

Yes, I know. I’ve been gone for a while. Between internet issues and doing a re-edit on several books I have the rights back for, it has been a little busy, with not much news.

But, later this month, you should see links for the re-release of Gambler’s Folly, Jareth, First Lord, and Viviane, First Lady. They all have new covers and have been re-edited for re-release. I’ll be publishing all of them as an indie author this time, so watch Smashwords and Amazon for them.

I also hope to release Gambler’s Folly Book 3–The Russian later this month. I think you’ll like the Russian. He’s a little rough around the edges, but he has been around for quite a while. And that’s enough to make anyone a little thick-skinned.

MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man and DANTE’S ANGEL are already available through Smashwords, with new covers. MASTER OF THE FLEET has also had a facelift.

So ready for a peek at the new covers?

See you again soon!

Today is the first day of summer–the summer solstice–referred to as Midsummer in some places.

According to some traditions, it is the time when the sun and the Green Man are at the peak of their power. Celebrations include dancing out in nature, bonfires, planting summer gardens, and lighting candles.

Some people tie strips of ribbons on tree branches as prayer ribbons, and visualize their prayers as they tie them on.

Whether or not you celebrate the occasion, it is a time to reflect back, on this longest day of the year, while you’re sipping iced tea, with maybe a sprig of fresh mint from the garden to sweeten it a little.

To celebrate midsummer, Morgan–The Pixie and the Green Man are on sale, now through June 30 over at Smashwords! So if you haven’t read it, go on over and grab your copy.

Happy Midsummer!

And don’t forget—

—to Share the Romance…

What if the Green Man isn’t a myth? Maybe he’s just a guy with unusual abilities…

Beginning with Gambler’s Folly, a whole series of books is developing, with a new release out this summer.

But have you read Books 1 and 2?

GAMBLER’S FOLLY--Book 1

Paranormal Fantasy Romance, where the games are dangerous and the stakes are high.

While Karianna had been planning to divorce her husband because of his gambling, she never expected him to put her on the table to cancel his debts.

Now the possession of the most powerful of the underworld leaders on Gambler’s Folly, Damiano Leone, she struggles to find answers, while adjusting to her glamorous new life amidst deadly, behind-the-scenes games.

DANTE’S ANGELBook 2 — Dante wouldn’t have missed his boss’s wedding for the world, but he’s never been off his home planet, Gambler’s Folly. And attending the wedding only accentuates his very single status. He gets tongue-tied asking a woman out for dinner. What must it be like to meet your soul mate?

But Dante’s troubles haven’t even begun until he meets Damiano’s cousin, Angela. A bit on the wild side, and with quite the attitude, their initial meeting leaves them both irritated. But their second meeting in the olive grove leaves them breathless, as they try to figure out how to break the news to the family that they are soul mates.

Dante’s Angel is on sale at Amazon now through May 18. So if you haven’t read it, go check it out before Book 3–The Russian–is released.

THE RUSSIAN –Book 3 — He is Dmitri Ivanovich Volkov, a wolf-shifter often referred to as The Russian. Born over five hundred years ago, he’d had a soulmate once. When she died, she took his heart with her to the grave. Since then he has been a lone wolf. He has avoided  long-term relationships. But maybe the universe is giving him a second chance at happiness.

Danni works for The Agency in Speranza on Gambler’s Folly. Most of her time is spent working or caring for her mother. She’s been lucky up until now, but tonight she’s accosted by one of the street gangs and is sure she’ll soon be dead.

Until The Russian steps in, saves her life, and captures her soul.
