And so another year is passing us, and here we are, together as always. I continual talk about how amazing fandom is when I am out in the larger world to people who don't quite get the idea of fandom. They know fans, but they don't understand the community being it. I do, I know the support and the love you have all shared with my over the years, you have no idea what that has meant. You are all wonderful.
As I sit here contemplating the sequel to my fourth novel, The Sail Weaver, I think about how much fanfic and this community means to me. I love fanfiction, I think it's one of the most amazing things ever invented. I love playing in other people's worlds, and I love reading the stories other people have produced in my worlds. Once again, and I know I have said this so many times, thank you all for being out there. If I could bake a pie, cookies and cake and throw a party and invite you all, I would.
I still marvel at moments when fic brought me comfort in an ER, or alone in the dark of night, or as I battled my way through this new challenge I am face with. I still remember a very startling moment when, in pain, frightened in an Emergency Room, talking to my nurse and discovering she was not only a fan of Supernatural but was reading one of my stories at the time! It gave me a sense of family and security that I cannot even begin to describe.
I can't thank you enough for letting me share my writing with you. I know I am slow with replies to reviews, but that does not ever mean I do not cherish each word. I am honored that you let me share my words with you, and so thankful that you enjoy my stories, odd though some may be. There are more stories, some that need finishing, some that still need telling. I am anxious to share them all! Thank you all for sticking with me, for waiting patiently, for everything over these past five years.
I would have the most epic barbeque ever and have you all over if I could, or make you all cookies and pie with coffee and chai. Huge hugs to you all, you know the hug I mean, the hug from Supernatural season six—you all know... You are all my family, my huge amazing wonderful warm family.
I promise to keep writing. I have a few plot bunnies that have been lurking in the dark corner of my room and they are rustling around and making noises, so I suspect they want to find their way out and onto the page.
I know there are people out there who do not agree with some of my stories, my characterization or particular incidents. I understand completely. We all see characters differently. Where I might be able to say I know Galen Emrys better than most people (LOL) I won't deny we all have a differing perspective. That said, however-- If you are going to post a negative review do not hide behind anonymity. I will delete unsigned reviews of this type. You have your say, but I get mine too. If you feel strongly enough to post a review, have the guts to put your name on it. I have my name on the top of the story, so please sign your review!
I would like to offer a special and huge huge hug to Merisha, Abni, Infinite Shadow and TraSan. Four amazing women who have put up with me through every word I've written, encouraged me and smacked me around when needed. Special hugs go out to lunasgathering for her calm wisdom, Nana56 and Manavie for encouragement and heather03nmg for u-turns.
As some of you know (After reading my fic Multim in Parvo) I have been diagnoses with gastroparesis and esophageal motility disorders. I encourage you to take a moment an learn more about GP, the more awareness, the more chance we have of getting research that leads to a cure, not just bandaids on the wound. For more info go to the Gastroparesis Awareness Fund or G-Pact
About me: I currently live and work in the Pacific Northwest. I have been a writer off and on for most of my adult life.
I am a Master Herbalist with a specialty in European herbalism and Dark Ages medicine. Along with that study comes a vast knowledge of herbal charms, magic and all the other things that used to be a part of medicine. I am more than happy to help anyone with information/spells/charms or herbal medicine. Please feel free to email me and ask. I also have a pretty good grasp of Native American Medicine (and lived on the Res for many years)
You can find my novels at Amazon and other online retailers, they are all available from Kindle!
The Sail Weaver is a new series, a mix of science fiction and fantasy. Tristan is the most talented Weaver the Guild has produced. Since he was a child and started his training to become a Weaver of the great sails of the Navy’s galactic ships, he’s had no idea what fate had planned for him. Then came the Winged Victory,the largest ship ever built, and he is given the task of Weaving her magical sails.
With a unique bond and friendship with the Dragon Fenfyr and in the face of hostile politics, prejudice and the threat of invasion by a horrifying enemy known as the Vermin, Tristan sets out on an unexpected adventure and discovers all is not as it seems. There are forces who want to win against the Vermin no matter what the cost. Struggling against enemies from within and without, Tristan and his companions fight to save the Winged Victory and the last hope of survival for humanity.
The Summoning, novel 2.5 in the Custodes Noctis series is now available on Amazon dot com for the low low exciting price of 99 cents! The third novel The Berserkers will be out in mid 2012 as well as an exciting new series.
My second novel,The Hunt is now available at Amazon, other online retailers and independent bookstores. It is the second in the Custodes Noctis series, a sequel to The Legacy. If you would like a signed copy, please PM me and we can arrange it!
The Hunt: More than a thousand years ago, the Hunt was founded to ride the Between World. Long believed a punishment for Custodes Noctis who have denied their destiny, the riders and horses of the Hunt became the stuff of legend and nightmare. Ten years ago, Galen Emrys denied his destiny in a desperate attempt to save his family-and the world. With his brother Rob's return they could face that fate together, but the past does not forget. The call of the Hunt is back, sounding clearly for Galen, and even as he fights the call, he and Rob discover that joining the Hunt-and possibly losing themselves to the darkness forever-might be the only hope they have to stop something far, far worse from rising and devouring the world.
If you have any comments, questions or even screams of anguish, please feel free to contact me. I really do listen and the comments and reviews that have come my way have all improved my writing. I enjoy challenges and have several stories on the burner, requests, that are stewing away madly, waiting to be done. I guess if I categorize myself I primarily write hurtDean. Although I think I am rapidly becoming a (perhaps new) genre, hurt Winchester. Poor boys! Although I try my hand at pretty much everything (except for death fic or Wincest). I want to tell whatever story I'm writing to the best of my ability. And if you have anything you would like to see, I am always willing to try something. A couple of requests have led to great stories, so I'm always willing to try something new!
In case you are reading my stuff for the first time, please know that I do not write Death Fic(even if things look very grim, I promise, promise they won't die! Or if it looks like they have, they will be back in body and not just spirit, I promise!) or Wincest.
I am trying to catch up on reading and reviewing everyone! I know I am behind, please be patient with me! Lately, I have had to choose between writing and reading, and those darn plot bunnies are armed and dangerous.
Over the years I have been nominated for, and won, a few awards including several for best story. I am honored to be recognized by my peers! Thank you so much, these mean so much to me.
The amazing Manavie made a video to go with When Last I Cried. It's up on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPCHQbtMGCs
