Happy Holidays + A Note On The Dragonwitch Chronicles

Hi all, and happy holidays and happy new year! The end of 2020 is almost upon us.

(And thank goodness, am I right?)

I had a wonderful Christmas yesterday and hope you all did, too. There was no snow on the ground unfortunately. It's very rare that Ottawa has a green Christmas, but I suppose it fits with this strange year! My province is going into another 28-day lockdown, so I won't be going anywhere for a while.

Anyway, I wanted to write a quick note on The Dragonwitch Chronicles: THE GIRL WHO WALKED THROUGH FIRE, THE GIRL WITH THE INVINCIBLE BLOOD, and THE GIRL AND THE SILVER MARK.

They were the first three books I ever wrote when I was 17/18, and they're available for free on Kobo, iBooks, and more. (You can buy them on Amazon and the Google Play store, but I like keeping them free. Why not?) This was back before I had a social media following, literary agent, or small publishing house. (My, how things have changed, huh?)

Lately, I've been noticing more people reading it. That's amazing! One person left four-star reviews for the first and second book, and someone else left a three-star review for the first book on Goodreads. Thank you for reading!

I just want to remind everyone very quickly:

Please go easy on those books! I wrote them at the beginning of my career, and honestly, I'm not satisfied with them. I need to do some grammatical edits and change some things. I've been meaning to get to it, but with my new books, it's been difficult.

But it means SO much that people are still enjoying them! I wrote them back when I was a newbie writer, unsure of my career and skill. For me, they're the baby steps I needed to take before I could move onto bigger, better projects. I'll always have fond memories of writing them with my now dearly departed cat sleeping on my lap, and the satisfaction I felt when I wrote THE END for the first time.

Maybe one day they'll be in stores, but for now, I'll keep them free and work on other projects. THE DARK QUEEN, THE DARK EVOLUTION, and THE DARK ABYSS are the next three books in my Soulless War trilogy, so please, check them out if you liked my other books!

Happy Holidays and be safe out there, everyone! Thanks for reading!
