I am so incredibly excited to announce that The Price will be available on Amazon Kindle this Wednesday, July 15th, for only $.99!
Hagador has made a deadly mistake in the pursuit of knowledge. In a country that has outlawed the study of The Few, an ancient, lost civilization that disappeared 7,000 years ago, there are some still searching for answers and paying heavy prices for them. Now labeled a heretic for his pursuit, Hagador must leave his entire life behind and travel across a country prejudice against him and his kind to a secret safe-haven wedged between what is known and what is forbidden. Ahead of him lies uncertainty. Behind him lies only death.
The Price is the first of three short stories that follow Hagador in The One-Horned Heretic Series. This series will act as an intro to a fantasy/sci-fi world that multiple short stories and future novels will take place in.
I started this series mid-pandemic and it was everything I needed to give me the confidence to continue writing. I am a notorious over-thinker, planner, excuse-maker, and pessimist when it comes to my writing. While writing this story, I realized that I don’t need to meticulously plan every detail. I just started writing and it poured out of me.
Another thing that helped immensely was getting a taste of the editing and rewrite process. My incredible editor and good friend Christie Stratos from Proof Positive Pro made the process so easy and positive (no pun intended). I always dreaded rewriting, with negative thoughts stopping me from even getting started. Now that I made it through, I feel so much better about it!
