Win Some; Lose Some

Well,  the first monthly Ides Giveaway was not as much of a success as I would have preferred: no one entered. I posted on the Facebook page some questions: what sort of items would you like to have as a giveaway?


Or something else?
Any suggestions are welcomed ... within reason, of course. Unfortunately, I cannot give directions to Deep Waters.


  1. I wanted to comment on your book, so I hope it is OK for me to put the comment here. I just started reading your book last night and it is amazing. I can't believe no one has left a review on Amazon yet, but I will as soon as I finish reading it. I hope Eliam and Azure have a happy ending and I can't wait to read book 2. If is possible I would love to get an advance copy.

  2. Deb, not a problem commenting here. I'm thankful to hear that others enjoy Azure Maris just as much as I do. Check back here on Monday, I'll have a place where you'll be able to order advance copies of Azure Lights - should be out later on this year.

  3. I finished reading Azure Maris and posted my review on Amazon. This what I said: This is a very powerful book; some might say that this book is too preachy, but I love it when a book draws me closer to the Lord and makes me examine my relationship with Him. Azure Maris is wonderful, gifted, think outside of the box person and there should be more people like her. I love Eliam and I'm hoping that he and Azure will be together. I want to say more, I want to express every emotion that this book evoked in me, but I don't know how to express that in words. Please give this book a chance; please read it.

  4. Thanks!Sounds great and I am thankful that you enjoyed the book as much as you did!

Chapter Four - The Board and Council

The town center was the oldest and grayest part of the town, though, even there the buildings were still colorful with the stone buildings being blue-gray, pink-gray and lavender-gray. In the center of town, marking the absolute center of the town, was a park area with a fountain in the center, the fountain led down into an underground grotto which was currently overflowing with people not unlike the fountain above it. “Looks like it’s connected,” Ramses said. “I think Mederei said it was had healing properties.” “That would be the place to look for the tapestries.” “Mama,” a child whispered loudly. Why was it when children whispered they yelled? “Why is that man so brown?” “Shh, honey, he’s probably from the capital region.” “No, Mama, they’re black, he isn’t. He’s brown, and scary looking.” The boy, blonde haired and blue eyed like his mother, was probably from the town. It was said that on the Isle of Caergwl├ón, the darkest were those in the capital and from there, they lost their color…

Chapter Nineteen - Negotiations

And we're back! Apparently my computer was sick, needed a reboot and now I'm in the process of organizing it all over again. Ah well. 

She was annoyingly brilliant, stubborn and naive; he was equally brilliant and stubborn, but not as naive. Kiango and Mederei were too valuable to the kingdom to remain in constant battles, but that's where they often found themselves. Both trying to solve a problem to help their families, friends or kingdom, but often going about it the completely opposite ways. Both had the power and prestige related to their families, and both wielded that power in strange and unusual ways. Kiango used his influence to lead the younger members of the society, but unlike other members of the royal family, had little magic. Mederei's magical power had to remain regulated and hidden because of the rules. How much of Mederei's ability Kiango knew about though ... They would always remain in conflict with one another, but there had to be some way they c…

Chapter Twenty - Bastllyr

Sorry for the delay on publishing, but here is the next chapter in Mederei's adventures. Currently, I have finished the book (wild cheering), but I have come to the conclusion that I need to improve my battle scenes. To that end, the upcoming chapters may not be ... as high of quality as I hope. 

“Climbing up the hill we go, we go; along the merry paths we go, we go. Sunshine fading, 'ventures waiting, up we go, we go,” Mederei sang, slightly off key as they climbed. “Can't you think of a better song than that?” Caradoc grumbled, four steps ahead of her. “But it's perfect. We're climbing up the mountain to the sunshine and the god.” “You've been singing it nonstop for the past ten minutes. Come up with another song. Anything.” “It might have been me there with you; it might have been me, and my dreams coming true.” “UGH!” “You wanted another song.” “Anything but that sappy song! It gets stuck in your brain ...” They walked in silence around a series of large boulders o…
