August is nearly over, which means the selection of short stories and the current episode from Mira Morganstein: Queen of the Nearly Dead Fae is all up for this Curiosity.
Here are the links if you'd like to read them before they disappear on the last day of the month:
Mira Morgastein Episode Two, Part 1
Mira Morgastein Episode Two, Part 2
The Merrow's Cap
All the links will take you to my website. If you would like your complimentary copy of Saltwater Curiosities, make sure you've subscribed to my mailing list before August 31st. Note: the above stories do not make up the Saltwater Curiosities in its entirety. They're just an extended sample of everything that will be included.
The first two parts of this series are already available:
The Curious Leaf is a short story that kicks off the Curiosities.
This is the story of how a little flower, barely three seasons old, and a faerie of unknown (for now!) origin team up to explore, to discover, and to become. This is the prelude to the other serial running through each Curiosity and details Kya (the flower, now somewhat faerie) and Hearthorne's (the faerie, now somewhat flower) adventures that determine the theme for each Curiosity.
Available on Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo
The second adventure is Curiosities of the Moon.
Kya had always wanted to see the moon while she stood in her pot on the windowsill dreaming, so it's no surprise that this is the first stop of The Curious Leaf--a walnut ship with maple leaves for sails.
What they discover there kicks off a new set of adventures that will ripple through a number of Curiosities to come.

Speaking of future Curiosities, I'm excited to announce the third in series: Curiosities of the Enchanted Forest.
The short stories have been a blast to write and include the further adventures of Kya and Hearthorne, a princess who is cursed to do everything backwards, and a short story involving Faryn, Lily, and Terrik from Slippers of Pearl.
The first short story will be available on my website the first Monday of September. :)
As for other books news, THE TROUBLE WITH MAGIC, the long awaited sequel to The Trouble With Toads, is on schedule and--barring illness or (super)natural disasters--will be available very soon.
I'd be more specific, but I've found the second I make future release dates public, various gremlins, goblins, and dragons appear suddenly demanding sprockets, tolls, and riddles. All of which invariably delay things. So I'll be sending out the news once I'm ready to upload.
And guys! While I am very sorry it's taken *coughcoughayearcough* longer to release than I'd originally anticipated--what with 2013 being the Year of the Harpies and the nearly finished draft that was all wrong. I'm so glad I threw the original draft out and started over from scratch. THIS is the story as it was meant to be told, and I couldn't be happier with how things are going. I hope you guys love and enjoy it as much as I do once it's out in the wild.
