Hi everyone – sorry for forgetting to post an update last week.
Winter has really hit hard, now, here in Tasmania. I’m sitting in my library with a duvet around my shoulders as I type.
I’m ploughing on with The Red Queen’s Gambit, the fourth and final installment of Wonderlust. After charging through the first four chapters, it’s been a bit bogged down, but… slow and steady, as they say.
Wonderlust 3: A girl for tea is nearing completion. Enjoy another excerpt…
Even as the fairy-lights faded, light grew in the dell: all silvery-gold. Faint at first, but growing steadily stronger. It was the moon, Alyson realized: a glorious, yellow, full summer moon. Then, silhouetted against its light, she finally saw the approaching figure. At first she thought it was a man, but then he stepped out from the trees and into the full blaze of moonlight.
He had the shape of a man, tall and thin, but his head was crowned with two long ears. Then, as he turned to look down at the slumbering figure of the fairy queen, Alyson saw the long, furry nose and large, gentle eyes of a donkey.
I really, really want to write some more adventures for Gennara and Sharronne, the futa centaur, and I have some ideas I’ve been scribbling down. But, before I embark on any new projects, I absolutely must finish the ones currently running.
I’m currently working on the third installment of “Wonderlust”, titled “A girl for tea”. Naturally, it has the famous Mad Tea Party – only, with my special, Wonderlust twist. There is much else, besides, of course, but in the meantime, enjoy a little excerpt from the tea party.
I’m pleased to announce that the long publishing drought of the past year is at last over, and the first of four installments of my new book, Wonderlust, A Game of Cat and Rabbit, is available on Amazon now. The second part, A Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar, will follow soon. I’ll post a schedule of my anticipated releases in the next blog post.
Wonderlust is an erotic twist on the Alice in Wonderland legend, and more, encompassing not only the fantasy world of Alice, but also elements of many other classics of 19th century (and earlier) fantastic literature, and literary figures, all given a dark and adult twist.
