News From The Woods

It’s been too long since I updated so let me try to rectify that now.


Sorry about the comments. I didn’t realize I had so many waiting in moderation. I’ll check more often.

Next Tanyth Fairport

Zypheria’s Call is in my word processor now while I wait for Ridan to return my edits for Captain’s Share. I’m working on a word spring with my online writer’s group and we’re working toward 15,000 words by the end of day Thursday, I’ve written 7,900 since Friday morning so I’m well on the pace. My goal is to have a full working draft for beta readers by the end of the week (June 8). Will I make it? I don’t know, but I’m working off a schedule that should help me get focused and stay there.

Trader’s Tales

The Ishmael Wang books are in production. Ridan has said both books will be out before Christmas. With a release in May and projected dates of Seaptember and November for the remaining two, that would be quite a feat. It’s not a prediction, just what the plan looks like now.

Web Work

All my websites are getting overhauled. I’ve hired it done because I need to get that fixed and I don’t want to take the time away from writing to do it. Allison Duncan of Get Found Consulting is doing the design work and we’ll probably be tweaking everything to make it easier to find what’s out there.


If you subscribe through you can find all the books that are available for free. Some of them are mine. The easiest way is to use the iTunes Music Store and plug “” in the search bar. Podiobooks is a preferred provider to iTunes and, as such, has their own presence there. All my books are listed there as free downloads in audio (mp3) format. Click the “All Podcasts” link and you’ll have all the podiobooks available. Or you can just put my name in the search bar and see everything that’s got my name on it on iTunes. (I’m shocked at the size of that list.)


Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the support all of you have given my work over the years. Tanyth’s stories are some of my favorites because they’re so rich (and difficult). It means a great deal to me that they’re being so warmly recieved.

Until next time, blessed be.

    Thanks for the update! It seems like I’ve been waiting forevever for the next Tanyth Fairport book to come out – I’ve read/listened to Ravenwood several times and never get tired of it! If you’re looking for beta readers, keep me in mind!

    I am looking forward to a fine reunion with the beloved Tanyth Fairport. I have passed my copy of Ravenwood to 12 people now and have only heard great things when it is returned. Thank you for all of the wonderful adventures you have taken us, your loyal readers, upon–I am sure these works will be enjoyed for years to come.

    Quick ! Waiting for Zypheria’s Call too…

    In the meantime, I wanted to gift Ravenwood to my mother, and was looking for it at Smashwords. It’s not there anymore ! 🙁

    Any other good place to buy it (without DRMs, not Apple, Amazon, kobo or B&N please) ?

    I forgot to republish it after I took it off Kindle Select. It’s still sitting there with the old cover. I can see I have some catch up to do.

    What format do you need?

    Mobi would be best for her (but I prefer buying at Smash than at Kindle), and if you’ll update it with the new Cover, I’ll definetely re-download it for me 😉

    Thanks 😉

    Actual discussion between two crones the other day….

    “You have such pretty eyebrows.”
    “No I don’t. I have to pencil them in.”
    “They’re still very pretty.”
    “Yeah, well, at least you still have your eyebrows.”

    Oh such a chuckle I got from this, Use it if you like. ; )
