All that I have found and like on DA

The Author has Vanished

The mid month post in which I discuss hunting for a book by an author I really really like and to be honest if it wasn't for this author I may have threw away all attempts of writing Risen in 1st person.

I discovered Lorna Freeman randomly in the used book store with a book titled Covenants.  It was a random grab as I didn't pick out any other books but I was reluctant to read it. It was one of the most funniest and enjoyable fantasy novels I read and discovers she has two more books in the series.

Now this isn't a series that was written years ago in fact the last book was written in 2011. At this time I read the novel in 2013? and I did remember seeing the series on the shelf so I thought it wouldn't be unreasonable to see them at the book stores or at least one of them. None of them had a copy. So I decided to patiently wait to see if the used bookstore would provide me a copy.

 As usually they had multiple copies of the last book. So I brought one of them a few weeks ago after giving up on the 2nd book in the series. Today I decided to search the author just to see if she is working on something else. To my utter surprise she's working on another novel in the series. The Reckoning Flame but that was in 2011 and her blog, which is the only source for contact hasn't been updated since then.

No problem, I'll just check out her publishing page...oh she doesn't have one. There was a coming soon with her name on it. Okay, lets see if B&N had a copy of the second book online, no they don't. There wasn't a current seller that had it. Let's just say the second book to her series on Amazon and is being sold above the list price. New copies way above the list price.

So what happened to Lorna Freeman? I can't find anything else other than an abandoned blog. Did she die and no one knew it. Is she publishing under a different name? Did she and Roc have a spat or something? I don't know.. I'll guess I have to figure out what copy to buy even though I hate paying more for a used book than it did brand new unless it's a collectors item and has been out of print for more than 15 years. 

My mystery for this this week. Now I must figure out how I want my chicken, baked or grilled.


Gallery clean-up, the 2015 edition, underway.
I've currently have the follow up to Homecoming draft nearly completed. It won't be up into March or around it. I need some time to get the tone of this story right. I'm not sure if I've approached it right.
Character flaws don't matter unless they hinder the character. I just felt that I need to say that.
Okay so now I can post meaningless trivial things on my DA page like Facebook and Twitter only, I've no Twitter account. Okay.

Why I may not reply to your comment"
Because I've stared at my monitor for at least five minutes failing to come up with a decent response or I've written a five paragraph reply that is twiddled down to nothing when I edit my reply or I pretend I don't have time. Mainly its just because I'm a introvert and when I feel I have nothing else to add I don't.

Thank you for the llama, I'm gonna call him Lenny. He's already ate two of my socks (each from different sets) but he is really awesome and worth the hassle :-D
