Free short story The Silver Wand (Part 1 of 4) now available

Okay, so this month's tale is a little different.
I thought it would be a real hoot to let Hal drop in on some of my other series in a way that actually makes sense. To my surprise, it works pretty well. There's a perfectly logical reason how the shapeshifters from the Island of Fog series could end up meeting the characters from Quincy's Curse, Fractured, and Sleep Writer, and that's what you're about to see over the next four months.
This is Part One of a four-part serial. What I love about this story is that it fits into the other three series without interfering with their chronologies. You can read this as a standalone Island of Fog tale and leave it at that... or if you're a fan of Quincy's Curse, you'll get to meet Quincy again... or if you like Fractured, you'll soon run into some of those characters and beasties... or if you like Sleep Writer, you'll quickly realize that what Hal finds is something from the Sleep Writer universe.
If you happen to have read ALL my books across all series, then you should find this particularly interesting and fun, and you'll learn a couple of things you didn't know before. If you haven't, well, maybe this will whet your appetite!
Go read "The Silver Wand" now on my Island of Fog Free Short Stories page.
Very interesting! I like where you're going with this and as soon as I complete the latest adventure I've been knee deep in I'm coming back to your worlds refreshed. Need to venture into Quincy's Curse and Fractured soon as well.
Gonna be loving this story....I have read all your books...what an excellent imagination you havte!! I just cant get enough, I pounce on everything you write. Imagine what you could do with an adult paranormal series!! You could be another Kim Harrison with her Hollows series.
Thank you, Michael and Carol, for your continued support!
Carol, I do have plans to dabble in something a bit more mature later this year, a little more edgy and gory. It's a thriller/horror/sci-fi type for older readers. More on that another time!
Fantastic! Two of my favourite characters, from two different worlds in the same story. I can't wait for part two.
I'm really excited for the next parts...do I have to wait a month? Maybe I'll read Quincy's Curse in the meantime...
Yes, do that, Lyra! :-)
Good to hear, Graeme!
