The most amazing part of all this is . . . I would never even have written the story except my good friend MA Church pointed me toward a tentacle anthology and piped up that we should submit stories together. At the time, I was thinking about writing a Valentine's story, but she reminded me about a tentacle idea I had almost written up for Halloween. Next thing you know, I'm writing Sorcerer's Knot and she wrote Nighttime Wishes. Both novellas are now scheduled to be published. How cool is that?
So here's a blurb~
Cian may be young, but he has acquired powerful magic—most of it by stealing spells from aging wizards lulled by his good looks. Even a dragon succumbed to his allure. Of the seven great arcana, only the power of the sea eludes him. Now Cian has learned where to find Muir the Scarred, the only man known to have mastered that power—and he is determined to wrest it from Muir by whatever means necessary.
Tossed up by the sea on a desolate island, Cian does his best to seduce Muir . . . and instead finds himself being seduced by a man with a terrible secret.
I will be posting a generous story excerpt when I get the cover art. I'm really looking forward to that!
