With Honor Intact

It’s always a bittersweet moment when a goal is completed.

I’ve spent so long living, breathing, and dreaming the second tale from my Virtue Inn series that I feel a little wistful seeing it finally move out into the world.

But it’s here.

With Honor Intact, second book in the “Tales from the Virtue Inn series”,  is now available on Amazon. When publishing this book, I wanted to thank the people who have supported me and provided me with their thoughts on the series. Therefore, both the first book in the series, The Guests of Honor, and the newly published sequel, With Honor Intact, will be on sale for 99 cents before returning to their regular price of $2.99.

So, thank you.

You can see The Guests of Honor here.

With Honor Intact is now available here.

With Honor Intact Cover 11aWhen the Cat’s away…

Honor Desry hadn’t applied to be the Innkeeper of a sentient Inn with magical guests, but her sisters and her right-hand fox-man are making the job a lot sweeter.

Unfortunately, the supreme Cat God has disappeared on Honor’s watch and Honor’s old life is about to interfere with her new life in a major way.

The Naked Glassblower’s Association has booked a holiday vacation at the Virtue Inn, and Honor’s old boss and his partner are coming along to chaperone. Honor needs to find the Cat, keep the strange guests away from the supernatural guests, and somehow hold family and mind together.

But the Virtue Inn hasn’t revealed all of its secrets and Honor will need to summon every last piece of her courage and cunning to save the day With Honor Intact.

Warning: Contains some violence, profanity, innuendo, and homicidal cardigans.

Giving Thanks

This is a post of appreciation.

It has been said of me that if there is an easy and a hard way of doing something, I will somehow manage to find the impossible way to do it.

This has certainly carried over into my adventures in book writing.

As I near the end of one month of “The Guests of Honor” being available, what has inspired me and kept me going has been the lovely comments, reviews, and encouragement from the people who have read the story.

So, with that in mind, I would like to thank:

Michael Nuckols

Book Crazy

James West

and

Sadie Forsythe (who blogged her review here)

for their thoughtful, detailed reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

I love talking about writing and endlessly analyzing and dissecting stories. Sticking a story out is like dropping sticks of dynamite down a deep hole. You know that something is going on, but you won’t be able to tell what unless there is a huge explosion.

So for anyone who has e-mailed me, commented, or reviewed- you’ve been exactly the kind of explosion I need to keep my feet moving and my hands writing.

Thank you.
