Wings, Witches and Wonder Chapter Nine, and Other Updates

Chapter nine of WINGS, WITCHES AND WONDER, a weekly, serial paranormal-romance, web fiction on ReamStories is now available to subscribers of the Apprentice tier and above. Chapters 1-4 are now FREE to all tiers.

Additionally, chapters 1-4 of my urban fantasy novella, SEEKING THE TRUTH are free to all tiers.

I will also have a little Christmas surprise for everyone later in the month.

Plus, in the new year, I will be re-serializing ALL IT TAKES.

And if that's not enough content from me, here's a little snippet of the new paranormal story I've started working on, featuring a brooding vampire, and a witch on the run. Hopefully, this story will also be coming to Ream Stories in 2024!

In other news, this past Monday, Me, Kyra Lennon and Paula Grabow recorded the Christmas episode of the Write Here, Write Now podcast, with special guest, children's Christmas author, Kirsty-Louise Garbutt. Many laughs were had. I will let you know when the episode goes live, but if you want to follow our Facebook page, and take part in the regular discussions over there, here's where to find us.

And last but not least, speaking of Kyra Lennon, after a three-year publishing hiatus while she's been building the Write Here, Write Now Community, Kyra is releasing a new book. Her cute, grumpy/sunshine Christmas Romance, RE-WRITING CHRISTMAS is out on December 14, and it's AMAZING!

A Quick ReamStories Update For You


WINGS, WITCHES AND WONDER. A weekly, serial paranormal romance web fiction on Ream Stories. Chapters 1-3 are now FREE to all tiers. Chapters 4-8 are available to subscribers of the Apprentice tier and above.

Over the coming weeks, I will be tweaking the subscription tiers on Ream Stories, as I prepare to re-publish ALL IT TAKES, and transition to a paranormal/contemporary hybrid author.

I will also be going "wide" with my serials, meaning they will be available on other web fiction sites like Wattpad etc.

The advantage of subscribing on Ream Stories will be that I will be updating more frequently for paid tiers, so if you find a story of mine you love, you'll be able to read it more quickly by subscribing. Plus it will support me, and I'll be offering other perks, like discounted paperbacks.

In fact, I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts on perks in the comments. What types of things would you like me to offer that would encourage you to become a subscriber?

That's all for now, as I'm off to beta-read Kyra Lennon's forthcoming Christmas release! Who's as excited as me for this new story?


Saturday Snippet from chapter eight of serial paranormal-romance web-fiction WINGS, WITCHES AND WONDER, which will go live on ReamStories this coming Friday.

Wings, Witches and Wonder Chapter Seven and Some Other Updates

Happy Friday, everyone.

First, chapter seven of Wings, Witches and Wonder is now available on ReamStories to all members of Apprentice Tier and above.

Secondly, I have made chapters 1-3 of Wings, Witches and Wonder available (and free) to all tiers, as well as chapters 1-3 of Seeking the Truth.

Over the next few weeks/ months, I'm going to be experimenting with ways of making my stories more available, in the hope of growing my community.

This might mean I move to an "early" access period, where paid subscribers will get chapters weeks or months in advance of non-paid subscribers.

Additionally, I am working on another story alongside Wings, which has a sexy witch/vampire pairing.

Here's a little peek!

Whenever I start a new project, I can't help but make the character on something. This time Sims 4. Any guesses who inspired my vampires, Antares?

Another thing I am considering adding to my subscription is contemporary romance stories, including my previously published on Amazon and now unavailable MMA romance ALL IT TAKES, and my queer romance TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY, as well as any new stories I write (I may have ideas for an age-gap rock-star romance!)

Be sure to follow me for regular updates, so you know what's coming, and when a new chapter is released.

Finally, for those who were following my NaNoWriMo progress, I decided to stop. I added almost 17k to Wings, which means I have a decent backlog of chapters for you. But I've come to realize I am no longer able to write daily, especially with a specific target (i.e 1667 words a day for NaNoWriMo), and it was actually having the opposite effect and making me LESS motivated. Go figure. Anyway, rather than forcing it and coming to hate writing, I decided to stop. 

Now I'm free to work on what I want and when I want, as well as devoting time to setting up my proofreading business and co-writing a contemporary romance with Kyra Lennon.

All that to say, while I dropped out of NaNoWriMo, I don't see it as a failure, and you should expect lots of fun things from me next year!

Until next week. Stay safe, and read on!

Wings, Witches and Wonder Chapter Six and NaNoWriMo Progress

Happy Friday, everyone!

Chapter six of my serial, paranormal-romance, web-fiction WINGS, WITCHES AND WONDER, is now live and available on ReamStories to 'Apprentice' to 'Master Wizard' tiers. 

And it's a spicy chapter! ;)

In other news, NaNoWriMo has been a bit hit-and-miss this week, as it's PMS week, and I often struggle when my hormones are out of whack. I don't really want to do much of anything.

Though I did get in a few days of writing, and recorded a new episode of the Write Here, Write Now podcast, which will be with you on November 15.

Hubby bought a new camera this week and is trying to improve his Youtube content. If you like handheld gaming (SteamDeck, ASUS ROG Ally etc.) or retro gaming, you should definitely check it out.

Finally, I recently discovered the Italian rock band Maneskin, and have been listening to them for the last couple of weeks. Today they released a new deluxe version of their Rush album, with five new songs, and OMG! They're amazing. There are three upbeat, danceable bangers, and two absolutely heart-breaking ballads. I can't stop listening to them.

That's all I have for you this week. Hopefully, I can shake the PMS blues soon, and get some more words on the page. 

Until next week, take care and read on!


Wings, Witches and Wonder Chapter Five is Live, and NaNoWriMo Progress

Chapter five of my serial, paranormal-romance, web-fiction WINGS, WITCHES AND WONDER is now live, and available to all Ream Stories subscribers of Apprentice Tier and above. You can find my Ream Stories profile here:

My progress on NaNoWriMo is going well, and I'm perfectly on target. Not only that, but I discussed the story with my hubby (who is my number one sounding board and editor) and I figured out the conflict and ending. I then made a brief chapter plan, and promprtly went off the rails during a writing sprint last night! But that's NaNo for you! lol

I'm taking today off to spend some time with my mom, but I'll be back at it tomorrow, continuing to write Wings, Witches and Wonder, and of course, I'll have chapter six for you next Friday!

Until then, stay safe and read on!




Today is the first day of NaNoWriMo, and I'll be using the event to finish Wings, Witches and Wonder.

I've gotten off to a good start, with 1760 words added to the story.

I'm currently trying to iron out some plot points. I'm a bit of a plantster when it comes to writing. I can't just write by the seat of my pants, but a too-rigid outline stifles me. Right now, I know my ending, I'm just trying to figure out the conflict and how I get to the planned ending.

I also edited and scheduled chapter five on Ream Stories ahead of its release on Friday. Here's a quick teaser for you all.

I'll be back tomorrow with another NaNoWriMo update, and maybe another sneaky peak at chapter five! ;)

Until then, stay safe and write on!


Wings Witches and Wonder Chapter Four Preview, and NaNoWriMo

Hey all,

I have a little sneak peek of chapter four of WINGS, WITCHES AND WONDER for you all ahead of its release on Friday.

-- I wanted to get dressed and rush to Chanctonbury Ring there and then, but I knew my duties to the Ancile and my promise to Janine came first. Plus, after the way Janine’s father had reacted the previous day, I’d never forgive myself if he did something to prevent his daughter from getting the help she wanted, and I wasn’t there to stop him.

Soon, I whispered on the wind, hoping that the alabaster man heard my promise.

I headed through to the ensuite bathroom to shower, and then after getting dressed, I made my way downstairs to the hotel restaurant for breakfast.

By nine a.m., I’d already had a large fried breakfast with sausage and bacon, as well as a stack of blueberry pancakes drenched in butter and syrup, and consumed four cups of tea. Using my abilities always made me hungry, but I was jittery too. 

On edge.

I wanted to go straight to the Goddard house and check if Janine was okay, but I knew showing up early might only antagonize her father.

So, instead, I did the only sensible thing I could do. I called Joseph. --

We're getting closer to Maddie actually going to Chanctonbury Ring, but first, one last visit to Janine.

If you want to read Wings, Witches and Wonder, chapter-by-chapter each week, you can do so on ReamStories for just $5 a month. The money will support me as a writer, and enable me to produce things like paperbacks.

Head over to ReamStories for full details of the tiers and perks I offer.

I'm taking a small writing break for the rest of the month, both so that I can focus a little more time on my proofreading course, but also because I have decided to devote ALL of November to completing Wings, Witches and Wonder by taking part in NaNoWriMo.

For those who don't know NaNoWriMo is a yearly event (with two camps in the summer) where writers come together, either online or in-person to write 50k in one month. Some do this by writing about 1500 words a day, others do bigger chunks to fit in with their lives/free time. But the basic aim is to use the month to get into a writing habit, make writing your focus and by writing 50k you get a jump start on a story.

Usually, participants write the beginning of their stories in NaNoWriMo, but I'm rebelling a little by already having 45k written. My aim is to add an extra 50k to what I already have, which will bring Wings, Witches and Wonder to ~95k and complete the story.

With the story complete, I can focus on editing the weekly chapters, getting the whole book ready for publication on Amazon etc. and working on book two of the Ancile Series.

If you're interested in following my progress, my NaNoWriMo profile can be found here. And if you're a fellow writer taking part, I'd love to add you as a buddy so we can cheer each other on.

That's all for now, but I'll be back on Friday with chapter four!

Until then, stay safe and read on.

Wings, Witches and Wonder Chapter Three is Now Live on Ream Stories

One thing I love to explore in supernatural stories is how humans react to paranormal beings. That's touched on in chapter three of my ParanormalRomance serial WebFiction WINGS, WITCHES AND WONDER, which is now live on ReamStories
