It’s summer, and things are slow. So it’s a great time to work on shorter projects and new covers!
I have two short stories that will be coming out in a few months in another short story pack. The first story is near novella length and is about a woman with a crush on her best friend, and the Japanese goddess of love. The second story is about a Chinese American interior decorator and a client with an unusual problem–her house is rearranging itself! “The Wish” and “Reflections of Chi” should be out this fall.
Meanwhile, I just purchased the cover for it:
Jodi is in love. The problem is that she’s in love with her best friend, a girl. And her best friend is in love with someone else, and getting married. As her friend prepares for a big wedding combining her Japanese and American traditions, Jodi finds herself praying to a long lost Japanese goddess for help.
When the goddess answers, Jodi is faced with a terrible choice. She can either have passion and heartache, or she can have friendship and loneliness.
Wishes always come with strings attached.
Bonus short story: Reflections of Chi
Geneva Lin runs a respectable interior decorating business. Her orderly world turns to chaos when a woman barges in, insisting that her house is rearranging itself. She hopes a little Feng Shui will solve the problem.
The question is, what do you do with a house that seems to want to kill you?
In other news, I’ll also be working on new covers yet again on my Cathy Pembroke series (“A Troll Under Golden Gate Bridge,” and “Fairies At Fisherman’s Wharf”) as I prepare to publish the next story, “Ogres At Alcatraz Isle.”
