The Friday 56: A Snippet from Ketil & Yitzy's Adventure


Hi, Naughties! I found a new blog hop called The Friday 56. You just turn to page 56 in any book or go to 56% on your e-reader if you're reading a short story or novelette. I'm featuring a few sentences from Page 56 (according to the Kindle Cloud Reader) in my own book, Ketil and Yitzy's Adventure in the Xura Dream House.

"Robin, John, I shall inform you when the candle and incense are to be lit, and I will speak the words of the spell. Now, allow me to fetch the dagger, and we shall hopefully commence discovery of what we must do in order to open the final lock."

Ketil placed a box of matches between Robin and Little John and the Arabian dagger with its wavy blade before Yitzy. He stood before the group and began to intone the words of the spell.

Ketil and Yitzy's Adventure in the Xura Dream House is a quirky Lovecraftian fantasy novella featuring a team of four unlikely heroes: a human ghost, two ghouls, and an exiled member of the Great Race of Yith. If you think that sort of thing really might be your bag, Baby, you can grab your copy free with Kindle Unlimited or purchase the book. I just lowered the price, so if it's still $3.99, wait until it drops to $2.99.

It's kind of dismal that I haven't posted here in three months, but I've been really busy creating work for submission. Unfortunately, this means having to back-burner my self-publishing projects. I just submitted a poetry chapbook manuscript to Two Sylvias Press and am working on a story for submission to Dragon Soul Press. Follow the link below if you'd like to learn more and maybe put the pedal to the metal and submit your own work.

I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
