Your Two Free Christmas Gifts: A Touch of Snow

Merry Christmas!

Your Christmas gift from me has arrived! As a special holiday present for all my readers, I’ve released a new Destiny in the Shadows holiday novella. It’s free to you all since I love you so much. 2020 has been a difficult year and I hope this lifts your spirits:

Twas the night before Christmas in the mountains of MoiRai,

A snow leopard lingered on the streets under a snowy sky,

For her three kittens were trapped in a ceiling and nobody would’ve guessed

That Dantenn would be run ragged when Michael unwittingly lets in their holiday guest…

Fans of Destiny in the Shadows will rejoice with this heartwarming Christmas tale, providing a glimpse into the mysterious village of MoiRai. Told from fan favorite, Dantenn’s point of view, it will bring a smile to your face and perhaps a few tears to your eyes this Christmas. It is best enjoyed if you have read War Machine and Slave to War first since this is set three years after the events of book two in the series.

A note from me: It was an absolute joy to write this story. Getting directly inside Dantenn’s head was fun, showing you all his point of view. I cried as I wrote the tail end of the story, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it. Part of the inspiration of the story came from the new addition to my family, a loving stray cat. All I ask is that you review it on Amazon or Goodreads if you enjoy it. All in all, I wish you a very merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year! God bless you.

You can nab your free copy below until December 30. Then it will return to full price at 2.99.

Sora – An app through Overdrive for student reading.

Or if you’re a more adventurous sort, you can find plenty of free E-books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Scribd, Rakuten, and more on an every day basis. Books go on sale all the time, so keep checking back to see what offerings there are every day.

On a better note, if you still prefer going through your local library, a number of my books are available to check out through Overdrive, Libby, and Hoopla Digital with your library card. If you’d like to see if they’re in your local library, check them out here.

The Divide will rise…

Where once there was peace, now there was only bloodshed. Lines are drawn and friends turn to bitter enemies as a new age begins: an age of division and hate.

DIVIDE is a five thousand word prequel short story to the Legends of Arestina series. It can be read as a stand alone book or as a precursor to Wings of Caligo, book one in the series.
