It’s LIVE!

It’s LIVE! Breathe Me to Life found in the Once Upon A Twisted Time box set is live!

Here are what some of the reader who have read Breathe Me to Life have said about it:

“Breathe me to life by Jolanthe Aleksander
A fae Prince. Love. Fate.
Will Kellan and Allisa manage to fall in Love even when she’s a mortal?
Well written read with a lot of complicated plot things.”

“Breathe me to life by Jolanthe Aleksander
A complicated love story. What are you willing to do for true love? A story that will keep you thinking long after its done.”

“Breathe Me to Life is a wonderful short story by Jolanthe Alexander. This was a nice introduction to her writing. The story flowed nicely and left me wanting more. I look forward to reading more from this author. This is a great collection of stories!”

I admit, I smiled like a Cheshire Cat, emitted a squeal or two, and did a happy chair dance, when I read those reviews.

I have to confess that writer’s doubt was STRONG where this story was concerned. I was sure my story was going to be a flop compared to what the other writers contributed. There are some incredibly talented authors in this set. Don’t get me wrong…I know not everyone is going to enjoy Breathe Me to Life, but right now…I know of 3 people who did and that makes my heart smile.

If you would like to read it, along with the other 14 stories in the set…it’s only 99 pennies. It will be available on all platforms for a few more days before the set goes exclusively to KU. The buy links will be posted below.

BREATHE ME TO LIFE Ailsa was biding her time when the call of the music floating on the wings of the night’s wind led her to a moonlit glen and another world. Kellan, Prince of the Fae Court, was tired and bored with things as they were until a young woman not only sparked his interest but his desire to finally claim a mate. Two souls find in each other a connection unlike any other. A chance encounter brought them together. A dream created a bond. Will the jealousy of one who was scorned tear them apart? Or will love’s kiss breathe life into a sleeping beauty?

Well…there’s that.

PHEW!

I’m home from a week+ away. I spent over 35 hours on the road there, back, and in between to other places and I’m spent. But…there’s no rest, not really anyway. There will always be something more to do and the list is cross one-add three. Invariably, I’m looking at one thing and something else pops up…”well, there’s that now too.”

BUT…it’s all good. I met some amazing readers, had some awesome chats with new to me (and new to publishing) authors…and got to laugh out loud. So, I’m solid. This week will be a lot of catch up for me, to get the promo back on track for Sultry & Sinful: The Femmes of Paranormal, and Prowlers & Growlers….as well as to be continuing the promotion for C.A.S.E. Revelations…there’s tons in the hopper.

I’m off again in less than 2 weeks to North Iowa Book Bash, and another fun, incredible signing event, plus I’ve got to finish Ela’s Cinder for May. Like I said, no rest. So, I guess I should take a moment to say thanks for the ones I just had.

The little river house was lovely, and mostly quiet…and if I didn’t use each moment to the fullest, I have no one else to blame.  Watch for the last March newsletter coming out from me on Wednesday with some reads from the signing authors at Biloxi…I’ll leave you with my final sunset from the trip.

Til next time…see you on the pages!

 

Saturday Shenani-again

This week has been a writing re-route. I thought I knew the exact track of the story and then, *woop* just like nothing was amiss, the story detoured on me. I’m not upset by the development, only surprised a bit as I thought I had been quite thorough in my plotting.

My question is this, does this happen to all writers? Or is this the unusual thing that sometimes happens to plotters that’ pantster’ writers have come to expect and perhaps even look forward to? I ask because I am a coordination freak of a sort. Running the home, the social calendar for four and trying to carve out time to write, the idea of sitting down to write without a plan scares the crap out of me.  Am I alone?

The other question I have is what other writers have done, if anything, when the story bait & switch pops up. I want to explore where the tale is going now, but I am wondering if I should try to hold on and just go with it, or if I should revisit my planning/plotting steps first. Best advice?
