For fun: Who are you in the Greater Realm?

In my The Last Dragon Charmer books, the characters fight with swords, magic, and teeth. Some are honorable, some fierce, some loyal and good. See where you would fit into their world by taking the quiz.

Are you a mighty Elderdragon or a honorable Elite Paladin. Do you fight with sorcery, magical items, or with your wits. Maybe you’re an enchanter or spellcaster. Or maybe, just maybe, you’re a noble and magnificent horse.

Novels and Novelties in Hendersonville, NC

I visited The Fountainhead Bookstore (soon to be renamed Novels and Novelties) in Hendersonville, NC on Monday. (Okay the picture below is from an earlier visit on a sunnier day.) Monday it rained and rained. Despite the weather, the visit was great. I always feel welcome in Hendersonville and the bookstore is full of books and charm.  I did a store event, a podcast with local author Ken Butcher, and later met for a delicious dinner with the tween book club.

Along with sword fighting and book talk, the store had a contest for ‘Best Dragon Art” and the winner, Ruth, drew an outstanding dragon!

And book three of The Last Dragon Charmer is titled….

REALM BREAKER (The Last Dragon Charmer #3)!!!  The title still could change but I don’t *think* it will. I’m revising REALM BREAKER now. I got a great editorial letter from my editor and good input from my agent, so my brain is full of ideas. IDEAS! Lots of then. Thanks to Jocelyn and David for those. I feel a bit overwhelmed, too, but mostly feel sparkly and amazed that I’m working on book three! Honestly, I don’t know how I managed to write three books.

I have lots of work ahead of me. I have to edit and think and make the draft better. There is so much work to do. So much work to do.  That’s how I feel at the beginning of a revision, or a draft, or a story. Writing is hard! And fun…definitely fun, too.  But also HARD…
