Familiar Travels - coming closer!

The next book in the Familiar Magic series follows the Familiar Trials - Fledgling book. It tells the story of TT, the Persian cat from that book as she returns home. It is an emotional book of trial and triumph, and hopefully, one that will address the hundreds of emails I am getting begging for the rest of that story. I will not say that this is the "rest" but it continues the tale, and I hope that you will be pulled back into my world of magic, familiars, and adventure!

A new Familiar will be making his debut in this story, TT's Uncle Jochar. I thought you might like to see him as a sneak peek!

The book will be out no later than this weekend! Stay tuned!

Packed Schedule, but exciting!

This year, all of the Phoenix Prime authors are trying to create merchandise that represents aspects of our publications. I was at a bit of a loss but came up with a few things that I would buy because they remind me of the book. As a STEM professional and as a writer, I am always drinking coffee, tea, and water. So it seemed reasonable that I would create mugs.

Because of the Badger Hole Bar, I did a coffee mug and a beer mug. And since I hate wet desktops, I did coasters. It was an exercise in art, which is NOT my strong suit. However, I found it fun and am beginning to think that this 'publish a book - give people options for cool stuff' idea might not be so bad after all!

Tell me what you think, please! Remember though, I am NOT AN ARTIST.

BHB Mug!
I know that it is silly, but the first thing I did was to go buy them. At this rate, I will have lots of mugs by the end of the year! The BHB is projected to have LOTS of books per year for the next few.

Thru the Badger Hole - Just Released!

I am happy to announce that the book, Thru the Badger Hole, has been released. I've been working on this book and the concepts around the series for about six months now. With fantastic assistance from the rest of the Phoenix Prime group, we have laid out a story arc that would amaze most authors.

This first book lays the foundation for the universe and positions it for continuing adventures and development in the rest of the main storyline. Along the way, there are literally over 100 outliers, novels, cookbooks, etc., that have been planned and outlined.

Obviously, I will not be writing all of them myself. Instead, I will have co-writers and contributors that help make this universe a rich and intriguing one with multiple points of view and a strong overall storyline.
I really hope that you will enjoy this book. Over the next three weeks, there will be a minimum of three other book releases in this universe. Please let me know who are your favorite characters and why. I just might sneak you a few snippets here and there to let you know how they're doing.

This is going to be fun!
