The stuff part of that post…I broke my website.  So I might need to Shiloh Walker posts here for the next few days.  My web people must hate me. I leave for Scotland on Wednesday.

The books…I’m almost done with another Grimm book. It’s Finn’s story. He’s the firestarter I started bringing into books a few books back.  I dunno when.  A word of warning…well, a few of them.  I started bawling near the end.  That’s bad.  I don’t cry with my books much.  I did with IF YOU KNOW HER, near the very end…if you’ve read, you’ll know why.  And I did in NIGHT BLADE.  And if you’ve ever read the Kit books…YOU’LL KNOW WHY.

So if I’m bawling in a the Grimm books, you probably realize something awful and sniffle-worthy happened.

Now.. the Kit novella… it’s not a short story.  It’s more a novella.  Short stories are generally well under 20k, and this one is over.  So, hey… it’s 20% of a book.  I’m done, it’s coming out…like today or tomorrow, and it’s priced at $0.99.

If it sells well, I’ll consider doing a few more of these in the future.  I have a few more ideas, but whether or not I pursue them depends on how well this goes.  FYI, guys, please keep in mind.. novellas are ideas intended for shorter stories…not full length novellas.  That’s why they are short.  Also, they are cheaper–that’s cool for you all, right? 😉

The book

A Colbana Files Prequel

The events of this short story take place between A STROKE OF DUMB LUCK and BLADE SONG.  It can be read as a stand-alone.

For the first time in her life, Kit Colbana’s life was going just fine.  She had a nice, easy job.  She’d managed to escape the not-so-loving attentions of a family who’d rather see her dead than look at her.  She had a roof over her head and she didn’t have to fight for every little thing she had.

Then she finds herself tangled up with a green-eyed witch by the name of Justin.  He’s looking for somebody and for some bizarre reason, he seems to think she can help.  All she has to do is say no, and she can go back to her safe little existence.  That’s exactly what she needs to do and she knows it.

Too bad she’s not very good at following her own advice.

Now… onto the DABWAHA!!!

The bitchery award of awesome books.  Or…um, something like that.  It’s confusing.  But Zach and Abby made it into the DABWAHA. And it’s time to make your brackets.  You should do your brackets because if you do your brackets, you can win prizes. Even if your brackets suck.  Also, it’s fun.  And if you do your brackets, you’ll be able to understand what I mean when I nag for votes next week. I’m going to be handicapped, seriously…being in Scotland and all and not being able to beg the way others can, with the timezone and not being able to access wifi, so all the help you all can give me.

I’m willing to … write hot and sexy love scene for Zach & Abbys’s wedding night if they advance.  I can maybe write a scene from an unrelated book, if they advance…or post a scene from Wrecked 2, if they advance.  You all can pick and majority rules.  If they advance.

See?  I’m flexible.

Go here. Pick your brackets. And next week?  PICK ME…and Zach.
