New Year New Beginnings

New Year New Beginnings

At the beginning of the new year, I wanted to try once more posting more consistently to both this newsletter and social media. It’s something I have always struggled with and hope to improve on this year. Being an indie author, we can easily stretch ourselves too thin trying to do all of the things we deem necessary for our author platform to be successful.

I have several ideas for both YouTube and my author platform. For those that aren’t aware Nicole and I have come together to create Enchanting Tales Publishing, an umbrella to house our writing. We have even come together to focus our YouTube channels on our writing, called The Writing Sisters, and The Blind Sisters will focus on how we deal with our blindness.

So far in the new year, we started a Ream account under Enchanting Tales Publishing, to house our stories that are published and the ones we are crafting. We hope to grow our author platform and gain more readers for our works.

Elementals by Michelle Madow

Nicole Cassidy is a witch descended from the Greek gods… but she doesn’t know it until she moves to a new town and discovers a dangerous world of magic and monsters that she never knew existed.

When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole and four others — including mysterious bad-boy Blake — are gifted with elemental powers. But the comet has another effect — it opens the portal to another dimension that has imprisoned the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes, it’s up to Nicole and the others to follow a cryptic prophecy in time to save the town… and possibly the world.

She’s tormented for being different. He’s sick of burying his wives. When their fates are bound, can they forge a peace that entwines their hearts?

Airi’s unique hair and skin color bring her unrelenting grief. Scheming to flee her cruel mother, the seventeen-year-old awakens after a vicious beating to find her beloved sister enslaved over an accusation of theft. And when she trades her freedom to save her sibling, she’s horrified when she’s given as a tribute to a brutal Ice Dragon.

The Dragon King, Kalden keeps his true form hidden from the world. Cursed to wed those not of his choosing, the immortal reluctantly accepts a new offering but throws her into a cold tower refusing to grow close to the filthy mortal. But after a scolding from his brothers, he relents and gives his unwelcome guest comfortable accommodations with a warm bath that reveals her alluring beauty.

Desperate to escape, Airi befriends a kind hunchback who urges her to accept a proposal of marriage from the king as a means of avoiding slavery. And though Kalden tries to end the evil infecting his neglected kingdom, his increasing obsession with his stunning captive could end in a catastrophic heartache.

With a slaver and a magical nemesis plotting their demise, can they reclaim free will and find their own forever?
