Bard & Barbarian

New Chapter. I’ve added this month’s installment to Bard & Barbarian. It’s an original story about two of the OCs I played during my first DnD campaigns. What can I say … I got attached. Their serialized adventure will undoubtedly be a stand-alone book one day, but if you want to be a part of their story while it’s unfolding, become a patron.

Chapter 16: “Don’t Be Strangers”

Quarterly Art Card

“Heart of a Dog.” As many of you probably already know, I have a Patreon account. (Details about why are on this page.) One of the incentives I provide as a thank you to my supporters is a Quarterly Art Card, and I’ve just revealed December’s. Since Harmonious Starmark’s story has become a Christmas Eve tradition all over the world (in the Amaranthine universe), I thought “Heart of a Dog” (art by FoxOfTwilight) would be Most Appropriate.

These are 5×7″ cards. You can kind of see the shimmer. I had them printed with a pearlized finish. (Very pretteh!) To get in on the offer, become a patron at the Twinkle tier ($4/month) or higher. This is a limited edition offer, and quantities are limited, too. Don’t dawdle.

ART: Her Colt

Fira folded her arms over her chest. “Human men like docile, doting, dainty wives.”

Ricker blinked. “You are not … large.”

“Compared to mares. But my stature is considered a misfortune. I am ungainly, cumbersome. You know, I have even been described as coltish.”

He snorted his way into a whinnying laugh and swooped her into his arms.

Share Your Favorites

Quote Graphics. While creating all the lovely book covers for my fanfiction, we included quote graphics, which make it fun (and cute) to share snippets from my stories. Next time I reread a fic, I’ll keep an eye out for lines I like. In the meantime, perhaps you’d like to suggest some? Send me favorite lines from any of my stories (fanfics & originals), and they may end up on quote graphics like these. ::twinkle::

My email is always.forthright@gmail.com … or you can simply make suggestions in comments.

Lord Charming

Tuesday’s Tote. I’ve been posting a new fandom book cover to Goodreads & to the fanfic site each week. (Well, okay. I missed last week.) As an added bonus, the new pattern becomes available in my Threadless & TeePublic shopfronts. Totes, masks, backpacks, zipper bags, journals, and note cards are available. This week we’re adding an homage to Lord Charming.

Summary: More than Sesshoumaru’s pride took a blow when he lost his arm. He’s in a delicate position… and desperate enough to seek the advice of a self-proclaimed expert. Canon Divergence. [Sesshoumaru x Kagome]

Longest Story. Based on chapter count (not word count) Lord Charming is my longest fanfic, coming in at 800 chapters. Random Fact: Every chapter title is two-words long. Just because.
