I forgot to post about last week’s one because I’d scheduled it as a filler, not in my regular week – so if you haven’t seen it yet, that means you get two for the price of one (click) today! Woot woo!
Today’s new addition is part 8 of the League of Absolutely Ordinary Superheroes (parts 1 – 7 are linked to at the top).
Last week’s was a contemporary short story called The Remarkable Insight of Jellybeans. If you ever read my short story collection Cherry Blossom before it was out of print (though I do have a very limited number of paperbacks left), you’ll recognise this one, but if not, then awesome! Now you get to read it for free! 🙂
Hope you have a fabulous day 🙂

Ready for a new book? My partner-in-crime Liana Brooks is away from the computer over her summer (July-ish), so she’s releasing the first book in her new series, Bodies in Motion, as a serial to keep the blog running while she’s gone. I’ve had the privilege of seeing this book in early drafts, and if you’re into space politics, witty flirty romance, and awesome worldbuilding, you’ll love this 🙂 Scroll down for the blurb!
BODIES IN MOTION
Coming June 13th (USA dates)
A body at rest stays at rest unless acted on by an equal and opposite force.
– Newton’s First Law of Motion
Selena Caryll lost everything in the war: her ship, her crew, her family. The only thing keeping her going is the hope that somehow the feuding, ground-bound settlers and the fuelless space fleet can set aside their differences. But getting the politically-fractured fleet moving again is more than she can manage alone. For now, she has to settle for working undercover with the planetary police force.
When someone tries to reignite conflict between the planet-siders and the fleet, there’s only one person who has the rank and ability to help Selena protect the fleet: Titan Sciarra, Fleet Guardian—the one man she’s tried hardest to avoid since the war destroyed her life.
In a world where the stagnant weight of tradition can be as deadly as any knife, the only way to survive is to keep moving.
BODIES IN MOTION will be serialised at www.lianabrooks.com this summer with new chapters every Tuesday and Friday, starting June 13th (that’s Wednesday and Saturday in Aus-land).
The full novel will be available in print and ebook September 19th, 2017.
I have a poem up on the Darkness & Good blog today. I wrote the first draft of this poem back in uni, in my first creative writing course. I stumbled across it again recently and realised how to finish it – so here it is. An autumnal poem for the autumn season in the southern hemisphere <3
Yo! Part 2 of the League of Absolutely Ordinary Superheroes is up on the Darkness and Good blog today! Check it out! 🙂
It’s my turn to post a free short story to the Darkness&Good blog again this week. This is an older story, because I freely confess that I’m spending every inch of my writing time trying to finish my novel Fox Red so I can release it next year, but you’ll enjoy it 😉 Desperate Measures is a creepy little wedding story; I feel kinda sorry for the MC, actually 😀
Anyway, click to head over to the Darkness&Good blog and read Desperate Measures 🙂
