The Fae are at it again! All over the world, deforestation has caused the barriers between world to breakdown. Now monsters are invading the city. Cathy Pembroke, a member of the Bay Area’s new Fae Enforcement Division, must deal with everything from trolls to fairies to goblins knocking up the local Circle K. Only this time, it’s much worse.  Ogres have taken over the popular tourist attraction at Alcatraz Isle, and worse, they’ve taken hostages. Cathy and her team must find a way to rescue the humans and the landmark. It’s their greatest challenge yet.


Now in Kindle Unlimited! Dreams and Constellations

I’ve been playing around with Amazon’s new “Kindle Unlimited.” When it first started, I got a ton of downloads for my two novels that are in the Kindle Select program (meaning they are exclusive to Amazon). Since then, however, the Kindle Unlimited (KU) borrows have dropped away, and the payments for UK have fallen from a starting number of about $1.80 to about $1.39. That’s just not worth it.

However, it may be worthwhile to have shorter fiction participating in the program. Next year I plan to publish the next Cathy Pembroke tale, entitled “Ogres on Alcatraz Isle.” I’m going to take the first tale down permanently (“A Troll Under Golden Gate Bridge” because that story is so much shorter and older than everything else I have out now. I have a new cover for the second tale, “Fairies At Fisherman’s Wharf.”  And I’ll probably enroll both that and the third tale in KU.

In the meantime, I’m putting another short story into KU for the next 90 days to try it out. I’ll do some kind of a promotion for my paranormal fiction, “Dreams and Constellations” in January, but I’m not sure when. Right now, you can get borrow it for free if you are a KU subscriber!

As the danger escalates, Iona begins to encounter issues in her real life–or are the dreams more real?

She must figure out the mystery before war comes to her dreams and possibly takes away both her futures.
