If you enjoyed Kamira and Veelk’s adventures in By the Pact, I hope you will enjoy the sequel as well! If you’re new to the series, pick up book 1 instead or read a sample chapter.
Last year, I posted quarterly updates to my invisible writer’s progress, but 2021 brought so much about, I barely blinked and it was already the end of June. So here’s a quick roundup of the first half of my year.

Oh what a year it’s been, don’t you agree? On one hand, I had some of my plans derailed, and things had not gone the way I thought they would. On the other, I was one of the lucky few who hadn’t been much affected by the unexpected situation that changed the way we live our lives. Yet, even for me, it was not a year of major achievements or hitting important milestones. Rather, it was a year of trying to move forward and succeed despite the odds.
“Dreams do not come true just because you dream them.” – Shonda Rhimes Back in my youth, when I was only starting my writing journey, it always seemed clear to me that I would one day be traditionally published. But while I grew as a writer, gathering short story publications from publishers small and big, the world around me grew as well, changing in the ways I couldn’t have predicted.

My free fantasy stories collection, Scourges, Spells, and Serenades is now on Goodreads, which means you can add it to your shelves, and it will count toward your reading challenge if you’re taking part in it.

I’m pleased to announce that my dark fantasy story Yet Another Vessel is available in issue 10 of Broadswords and Blasters. Join mercenary Molsyn who is on a mission to solve the mystery of disappearances in the woods and finds more than he had bargained for. The magazine is available on Amazon.
It’s been a while since I posted regularly. After nearly finishing the A to Z Challenge, I needed time to recuperate from intensive blogging, and I had to catch up with my writing. On top of that, the last two months were quite intensive work-wise, demanding my attention and time. So, with heavy heart, I decided to “disappear” for a while, including less presence on social media for the much-needed catching up with my priorities.
I’m happy to announce that my short story, Black Eyes, Luminous Monsters has been released this month as a part of Spring Into SciFi: 2019 Edition – an anthology by Cloaked Press LLC. Join military medic Kyara who loses her sight during a defense from an alien anomaly, and who discovers there’s more to both her condition and the invasion. The anthology is available on Amazon, as paperback, ebook, and in Kindle Unlimited. And if you’re wondering where I’ve been: after my self-imposed and much-needed hiatus, I’ll be back to regular blogging in July.
