I have a few things I'd like to share with my readers, and
those who I hope might become my readers, that are free. So I'm posting them
here on this page.
Of course, in return for that, I do hope that you'll sign up
for my mailing list (if you haven't already). The mailing list will never be used to spam, and I will never
sell my mailing list or share it. The mailing list will only be used to notify
people when I publish a new work, or when I have put something up here for
free, in case they're interested in it.

Novellas and Shorts from one of my series:
This is a novella that goes over how William's sister,
Nikki, became a champion like William. I was working on writing a story
featuring her, and I wrote this as the start. However anyone who has read the
third book in the series is already familiar with about half of this, so I
didn't feel right putting it in the story as it isn't exactly new material.
But I thought any who hadn't read that story might still
want to see this, to learn more about Nikki. So here it is for you to see. It's
about 25,000 words.

Laria on Earth (short - excerpt)
This is a short that just fills in what happened those first
two weeks in the POI book 'Reprisal' for when William first Took Laria to the Earth sphere and they stayed at the Renfaire. Several people were curious about what happened
during that time, so here it is.

These two short stories are 'Fan' fiction based in the Sholan universe, created by Lisanne
Norman, who is a very close and dear friend of mine. As I do not own that
universe, and I'm not under contract to DAW, the publisher that Lisanne published these works with, I cannot sell these,
nor can I represent them as official stories from her series. Also these
stories are not endorsed by DAW or Lisanne.
However quite a few people have enjoyed them, so here they
are, free of course, and they're posted as fan fiction.
Recruitment is about how Banner joined the Brotherhood of Vartra.
Sholans in NYC is about Banner
and Jurrel on a TDY at the Sholan
Embassy on Earth.

Note: I don't recommend
the kindle version, as changes to the way the kindle reader deals with
non-Amazon generated files causes format issues, it deletes lines inserted for
spacing. No idea why, it just does nowadays.
