The War of Wind & Moon Delayed for Exciting Possibilities!

Hello lovely readers! 

I know I promised you Chapter 10 in three weeks but I’m not going to meet that for an exciting reason… that I can’t share with you yet, though I so wish I could! 
I can say that I’ve been asked to work on something other than chapters for a little while which could end up being HUGELY exciting and if it does I will be so excited to share it with all of you who have supportted my work for so long! 

So, for now, I’ll have to ask you to stand by – either I’ll have wonderful news about Wind and Moon, or I’ll simply have the next chapter and continue as orginally intended. 

In the mean-time I hope you’ll be sending good vibes my way for the exciting outcome – you can even help that along by pre-ordering The War of Wind and Moon, Season One on Inkshares to let them know you support the story! I’d be so very grateful if you did!

Here’s the link to Inkshares: I’d be so very, very grateful if you did!

I’ll keep you all as informed as I can as soon as I can! 
Wishing you creativity and courage!

The War of Wind and Moon, Chapter 9

WoWaMSQ S1CH 9Hello dear readers!
Here at last is Chapter 9 of The War of Wind and Moon – I’m quite excited about this one because it is the end of Act One of both Season One and Mia’s life! I do hope you enjoy it.
For those of you who listen to the podcast as you read, you’ll notice the lack of the embedded player in this post – the podcast is up and you can play it on the main page playlist widget if you really want to but I’m loathe to link it here just yet because after I uploaded it, it sounded dreadful (I won’t say in what way in case you haven’t picked it up but I’d bet you have!) I will be remastering it for you the moment I have time and will embed it when I do – it may be the weekend, though, ironically, a request for me to return to producing audio books has had me running around visiting potential studios this week!

For those of  you who are happy to just read, though, I won’t keep you in suspense any longer! Remember, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or a question!
Good reading to you!

The War of Wind and Moon, Chapter 9

Mia squeezed her eyes closed but pain and swelling forced them open. Instead, she focused on the bloody towel she was holding to her nose, counted to three, then raised her gaze to the ceiling again. The glimmering creature was still there, staring down at her with its lidless eyes atop […]

The War of Wind and Moon, Chapter 7

WoWaMSQ S1CH7Hello everyone! At last (at last!) Chapter 7 is complete! Thank you for joining me here again and thank you to those who gently let me know that you were waiting for the next chapter – it helped while I was struggling to balance writing and other aspects of my life and feeling a little guilty about wanting to prioritize writing. I have now done that – proudly – because this is my career as well as my dream (and compulsion!)

In chapter 7 of The War of Wind and Moon, we return to Nagoya, Japan where Ryosuke and Akiko Kazemoto, of Kazemoto Security Corp’s Supernatural Division, turn their attention to the strange Gossip at St. Kilda High and the seventeen-year-old girl who might just be a candidate for recruitment – if she’s not too old to train.

I hope it was worth the wait! Enjoy!

A knock at his office door drew Ryosuke’s attention from his reading. Akiko was standing in the doorway, brandishing an email open on her tablet, “You’ve requested we unbind the Gossip from Tak-kun’s friend?’ Ryosuke nodded as he waved his sister inside. “Mhmm. Probably should have been done years ago but she seems to have missed assessment somehow.”

“Shouldn’t you do a proper assessment, then, before we unbind them?”

Ryosuke was taken aback. He couldn’t remember when Akiko had questioned a decision that was entirely his to make. “I don’t think that’s necessary, no,” he said. “My staff have marked every one of her Gossip’s Memories as ‘No Further Action’ for fourteen years. I’m fairly confident it’ll be fine.”

“Sorry,” Akiko said, waving a hand […]
