This week’s Smashwords coupon is for “The Wolves Will Come”:
How will you answer when they are at your door?
The Tribe is leaving their world for a new home, but Bear is too old to make the journey. It is of no real consequence – neither is it in him to run from his enemies, nor to abandon his heart’s home. It’s just a matter of time before the Exiled find him – or will age and the wolves get to him first?
The expression “The Wolves Will Come” was supposed to be a negative and represent a danger; colonists are on the run from their enemies, and they are forced to leave their home and their elderly behind. I wanted the elder to be abandoned by necessity, but proudly, not as a victim. It wasn’t until I started writing that the tribal, pseudo Native American flavor seeped into it, and from there the wolves came. It seemed natural that the wolf in his solitude would have a commonality with the old man that the two didn’t share with their own kind, and that they would bond.
Use coupon code CM25R to get 67% off the cover price at Smashwords (that’s only 99-cents – such a deal!) – it’s good until July 2nd Here’s the link:
“The Wolves Will Come” is also available in the collection – And Yet Still Even More Things I Could Get OUT OF MY MIND.
Up next for publication: “Mating Rituals”
It’s been so long…
Manti has only one night left on Cuniculus before she returns to Cesilli – why not spice up a paid hit with a little romance?
“Mating Rituals” is a very short, speculative fiction that came to me out of nowhere (well, I heard Manti beginning her monologue inside my head, so I guess that’s where it actually came from. There are SO MANY voices running around in there…) The release date is July 1st, but you can preorder now at a REDUCED PROMOTIONAL PRICE at all the usual places, including (but not limited to):
