Amaranthine Saga 03, Tamiko and the Two Janitors by FORTHRIGHT

In doing her part for world peace, she puts one crosser’s whole world at risk.  Conspiracy theories, werewolf scares, and protest rallies have hampered the peace process in America, where social and political unrest keep most Amaranthine from declaring themselves. Those not in seclusion rely heavily on illusion to mask their true nature.

As the newly appointed principal of a small elementary school, Tamiko Reaverson is doing her part for world peace. She rallies her community’s support and applies for Hisoka Twineshaft’s school revitalization project, which will bring Amaranthine to her hometown. Little does Tami realize that Fletching was founded by one of the oldest and largest urban enclaves in the United States. And two of her staunchest supporters—janitors at her school—share a secret neither wants exposed.

Release Date: July 22, 2019

Songs of the Amaranthine, #2

Songs of the Amaranthine is a collection of short stories set in Forthright’s Amaranthine universe. Before the Emergence, the clans were nothing more than whispers and mysteries and legends and lore. But every so often—in out-of-the-way places or shockingly close to home—an unsuspecting person stumbled into a fateful encounter with someone who was decidedly other. An eclectic collection, spanning continents and centuries. Tales of adventure, discovery, friendship, rescue, belonging, and love. Each short story stands alone and can be read in any order.

One sister, a pure light that beckons,
the other, a fierce light that burns.

Teaser

New to You? Oh, let’s have us another little teaser. I’ve mentioned new fanfics in the works, and some of them are actually on my publishing schedule. (I’ve justified this by calling them ‘grassroots marketing’ … but we all know I’m just goofing around.) Most of you know me from the InuYasha fandom, but in December, I’m due to unveil a story from outside my usual stomping grounds. And it occurred to me … you might not be familiar with my subject matter!  So if you want to get the most enjoyment out of an upcoming adventure, you have some homework. Watch a movie. Marathon an anime. Be ready!

Because I’ll be writing for … Continue reading

#Inktober2018 Update

I posted here that I was thinking about using this year’s Inktober prompts for some playful drabbling. With a character in mind, a setting all ready, and a prompt list for inspiration, it wasn’t hard to make things happen. So I’ll be posting a chapter a day in October. (That means we start Monday!) Here’s a refresher on the prompts:

I’m calling the results my first Amaranthine Saga fanfic (even though I’m the author). Everything is very spiffy and official-like. I have a title, a summary, and even a book cover. In classic forthright tradition, the story will have 100-word chapters … and will probably take a few years to tell.

Want to drabble/drawble along?

Songs of the Amaranthine

Oh, let’s have a little teaser, shall we? We’ll do an official cover reveal for the first story in this collection on Monday, October 1. (If all goes according to plan, Amazon customers will also be able to pre-order.) The scheduled release date is December 4, 2018.
