March Goings On & So Forth


Is it spring yet?

Winter can be pretty, but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing freshly unfurled green leaves and golden daffodils and feeling warm sunbeams on my face instead of blasts of icy wind.

But before spring actually arrives, something else will—and I’m so excited! Deep Magic E-zine’s Spring 2019 issue will be published March 12, and (squeal!!!) it features a short story from me.

I’ve been thinking about writing a few side stories set in the world of The Mermaid’s Sister for a while now, but never did anything about it until super bestselling author and Deep Magic creator Jeff Wheeler asked me to write a TMS story for the digital magazine a couple months ago. I was thrilled to accept his kind offer—and terrified that I wouldn’t be able to write something quickly that was of a quality worthy of such a fantastic e-zine. But soon enough, ideas were churning in my brain about our dear old friend O’Neill and his guardian Scarff and what one of their winter trips south might have been like. (A few hints: there’s a magical swamp and an unwanted engagement, as well as an appearance by Pilsner the very clever raven.)

Writing The Peddler’s Reward and revisiting my beloved characters was so much fun that I’m planning to write more TMS side stories in the near future and to make them available on Kindle Short Reads.

May the rest of your winter days be mild and sunny! Meanwhile, keep reading—and add Deep Magic to your reading list if you’re up for some good, clean, well-crafted fantasy and science fiction stories.

Affectionately,

Carrie

 

P.S. If you’re in Pennsylvania, stop by the W.B. Konkle Library in Montoursville on March 23, 2019, from 11 to 2 for their Author Event. I’ll be there (with Pilsner) selling & signing books in celebration of the library’s 75th birthday!
