Hello, dear readers, and welcome!
I hope you're all having a lovely new year so far. I've been busy in a good way, working on stories and planning out what happens next from here. Planning for new things is one of my favorite tasks, so it's been exciting.
While I've been working on new ideas and plans, I've also been thinking a lot about what I want my portfolio of stories to look like from here on out. While I love all of my stories, I'm definitely heading in a new direction than I have been situated in for the beginning stages of my writing career, and I want my work to reflect that.
So I have news. I know that now, in the era where anything can be online permanently, it's not abnormal for authors to have a "back list" of stories that are available, however, I do think that sometimes it's good to put stories into the "Story Vault". Much like Disney has a vault for their films, I have a vault for my stories -- some published, some not -- that can become a permanent home. While there are plenty of stories I have (published and not quite yet so) that will continue to remain in my online catalogue, sometimes I think it's better for stories to be put to rest, whether permanently or for the time being.
I've been thinking long and hard, and have decided to put my YA contemporary fantasy, the Phantasmagoria Duet, into the Story Vault. It was a difficult decision to make, but I'm happy with it. I wrote these stories when I was much younger, for NaNoWriMo, and though I definitely believe that they are good stories, as they are they simply don't fit with my portfolio, and where I'm at in my writing career at the moment.
Interested about the Story Vault? I'll be writing more about it as I get closer to unveiling my updated website. Look forward to it!
So, the Phantasmagoria Duet stories will be going into the Vault at the end of January, but until then they will still be available for purchase through my distributors. If you would like to get a copy before the story becomes unavailable, please check the Phantasmagoria Duet page for links and more info.
Thank you to everyone who supported and enjoyed reading these stories. It was very fun to bring the world of my childhood to life through a story, and I'm glad that I wrote and published these tales for you all to enjoy.
Here's to the next leg of my publishing journey!
