Chocolate, Story Time and Newsletters

Last week a great writer friend, Sherri Shackleford, handed me a special piece of chocolate she'd saved from a box of gourmet chocolates. Now, the sharing of chocolate between authors isn't that big of a deal. Chocolate is a significant part of life's blood for many of us.

What made this particular treat special is that it reminded her of the chocolate on the cover of my next short story release.

Candy Guy and the Chocolate Brownie

Candy Guy is the first short story from The Keltic Multiverse, the worlds discovered and explored in The Double Keltic Triad, and Children of the Keltic Triad series. Serieses? What's the plural of series? (It's...duh, series.) Anyway, this is the tale of a man who is both a chocolate maker and a chocolatier. Distinction? Well, a chocolate maker makes chocolate from the cacao beans and a chocolatier makes confections from the chocolate.

But that's not important now.

I'd share the blurb with you, but I haven't written it yet. I find those so much more difficult than writing the story. For now I'll just tell you that this fantasy romance short story blends the human world with that of the fey as smooth as chocolate melts on your tongue.

And the cover? The first reveal will be in the premier issue of News From The Starr. So, please sign up using the contact form on the right. This newsletter will arrive in your email occasionally. I don't allow or condone spam or unauthorized sharing of information, so don't worry about that. Of course you can unsubscribe at any time. (yes, I know. Many of you have signed up for the newsletter and have seen nothing. That will change. Promise. ) I'll be sharing news, tidbits, contests...oh, who knows what!

Candy Guy and the Chocolate Brownie will be released mid-April. Stay tuned.

Need something to read before then? Click on the pic below (ha, click on the pic.) to visit the Starr Library. There's even a couple of free reads there for you.

Candy Guy likes deep, rich, dark chocolate. I'm a milk chocolate kinda girl. What type of chocolate do you like best?
