The kids may be back in school and the stores stocking up candy for Halloween, but that’s not how I know the season has come. At this time of year without fail, living out in the country, something always occurs. My husky starts his nut hunting.
Much like a human bobbing for apples, I wind up walking an eighty pound, nut hunting menace on a leash, diving for every acorn he sets eyes on. Mishka thinks he’s the doggie-squirrel version of of Top Gun, dive bombing and zig zagging in every which what direction as we walk, without warning and the stealth of an F18 after a target. And since acorns are potentially poisonous to dogs, I essentially wind up walking him like a hangman on a noose, keeping his head above the ground.
Ah, what a mother won’t do to keep their little one safe, practically forced into choking him on his collar so he won’t poison himself. Then again, this is the little ‘hero’ who managed to swallow a sock the within three days of getting home and threatening us with a potentially two thousand dollar vet bill before yacking it up again days later. Needless to say, no socks or acorns for Mishka ever again.
Anyway, after a terribly short Summer (too short in my opinion), I’m back from my hiatus. After recovering from surgery and taking a break from social media, I have returned. Tell me, did you miss me? As a thank you to you all for all your wonderful support during my illness, I managed to write four new books.
For Halloween, I have a new story for all my vampire lovers. While I’m not a huge fan of Halloween, I figured what better a time to publish a story with our favorite blood sucking undead? My readers enjoyed the Swan Princes so much that I thought another standalone fairy tale style story was in order.
For November, my Vaktare of All Realms series is finally coming out with the first three books! My Vaktare stories have taken over ten years to make it to print since inception, so I’m very excited to share them with you all. Shira was one of my first ever characters in my novels.
I’m looking for ARC readers for all four books, so if you’d be interested in reading them first before they’re released, all you have to do is let me know! Comment and say you want in!
Again, thank you so much for all your loving support. I couldn’t keep writing without you all.
Love and hugs,
Maggie Lynn and her fluffy nutcase Ser Mishka
P.S. He’s still sulking I wouldn’t let him poison himself. Oh well.
