elizabethmccoy: A black-haired woman's face. She's glaring. (Kessa)
A list of the stories in my Lord Alchemist fantasy universe:

Plague, a prequel set approximately 20 years before...
Herb-Witch and Herb-Wife, the Lord Alchemist duology.
All That Glitters, book one of the Alchemy's Heirs trilogy.
Crucible, book two of the Alchemy's Heirs trilogy.
The Bear Prince, three folktales from the Lord Alchemist setting.
Legend of the Morning Star, another folktale from the Lord Alchemist universe. (Also available in Russian!)
I'm still dithering over-recoloring the cover, so no icon yet.

Shadow of a Memory is a direct sequel to Wahnt, though it can also be read first, or alone.
In the universe of the Kintarans, there are tall tales of what lies in the far reaches of space, some eerie and some merely odd. And sometimes the tales are tall indeed, but a pirate-hunting ship finds that they may also be true...

elizabethmccoy: A girl with a polar bear, titled "the bear prince." (The Bear Prince)
This was my first foray into self-publishing, and therefore needs a page of its own to document all the places that one can purchase it.
The Bear Prince (and other fantasy folktales) is a collection of three folktales from a fictional universe. When small magics are real, what stories do parents tell their children at night? What tales do storytellers spin, so their listeners will toss them a few coins? Find out, in "The Bear Prince," "The Princess and the Sheep's Wool," and "The Jewel of Moon and Starlight."


The Bear Prince's stories are drawn from the Lord Alchemist universe, but the Author's Afterword should provide any context that the stories themselves might lack.

Available at:

elizabethmccoy: A scruffy woman, low-tech scene. Caption: Herb-witch (Herb-Witch)
I have, at long-last, published my fantasy romance (...for some value of romance!) duology: Herb-Witch and Herb-Wife!

I'm very excited.

Herb-Witch

The Lord Alchemist must be immune to hostile potions. But in all the country, there are only two known immunes: Iathor Kymus, the Lord Alchemist, and his feckless brother, Iasen.

Kessa is a half-barbarian herb-witch, arrested for crimes she didn't quite intend. But when Iathor discovers her immunity to truth potions, he'll do whatever he must to court her. Guilty or not, she's his only hope of banishing his nightmare: a son enslaved to him by the loyalty potion that each Lord Alchemist's heir must drink, and defeat.

But Kessa doesn't trust him, Iasen despises her tainted blood, and there's still the mystery of who complicated Kessa's little crime into the bigger one she didn't intend. They don't even have the benefit of lust at first sight. All they have in common is the alchemist's immunity, and an ability to get on each other's nerves. Will it be enough?

Herb-Wife

The Lord Alchemist must be immune to hostile potions. But in all of Cymelia, there are only three with the alchemist's immunity: Iathor, his brother Iasen, and the half-barbarian herb-witch, Kessa.

Though Kessa is hardly the expected wife of a noble, Iathor has secured a betrothal - but his brother has vowed to prevent the marriage by any means necessary.

Iathor will do whatever he can to keep his wife, no matter what she's done or what his brother tries, but Kessa's own dark secrets may sabotage any hope of a happy ending.

And, aside from the reviews on those pages (Smashwords and Amazon, primarily), people are talking on Goodreads about both Herb-Witch and Herb-Wife.





Sitting alone in the dark made it easy to tell when someone was coming, bringing light. Footsteps carried well, too, so far from the usual prisoners who waited for judging in the underground prison. Kessa'd had plenty of time to wipe her face, smooth her plain skirt, and sit up straight on the rough wooden bench.

She'd never been pretty enough to play the helpless child – not with a half-barbarian's black hair and coppery skin, and especially not with her eyes the way they were. Proper, stiff innocence, or dignified guilt, would have to serve.

She closed her eyes so she'd not be light-dazzled. There were soft words beyond the door, before it creaked open.
The Smashwords Meatgrinder, that is.

I have heard more fussing about that Meatgrinder, and I honestly cannot figure out why. There's a free book by the company owner about it, and yeah, it's long and confusing. That's not because the Meatgrinder is confusing or hard to format for, though. It's because Mr. Coker (the author) has the approach that he's got to hand-hold the authors through re-formatting, with the assumption that the text is just going to be a hot mess, formatting-wise. So he's telling people how to fix everything at the same time he's telling them what to fix it to, and there's no simple checklist, and he tells them how to fix it several times in different ways so the people who didn't understand the first explanation have a chance of understanding the next.

Needless to say, there's a bit of bloat there.And there's gonna be some bloat under here, by the standards of web-pages, so I'll put in a cut. )

Right here!

So if you want a form that you can print out, in 8.5x11 format, here you go. (You'll have to figure out the binding yourself, so far. I'm casually eyeing DTF's ability to offer hardcopy, at this time. At the moment, they make it sound easier than Lulu did, in the past...)

* (As I write this, Diesel seems to think many of my books (all the free ones...) count as "erotic," when in fact, none of them would be classified as that. Though Herb-Wife does contain some relatively explicit scenes, it's not what I'd call erotica.)
elizabethmccoy: An anthropomorphic feline's face, with the words "Uniqueness Counts" (Uniqueness Counts)
Kinahran (Moonfur to humans) and her little sister Embereyes are on their own, determined to make their fortunes and not return to their clanship in defeat. But making fortunes requires jobs, and two Kintarans with little experience can't be picky. So even if the ship crew includes a certain sensor expert from their past... and even if it's a wild merfah chase... They'll just have to do their best.

And when they find something unexpected and Moonfur has to come up with a plan? For a Kintaran, uniqueness counts.

A 10,000 word short story, "Uniqueness Counts" originally appeared in the fanzine Pawprints. It is a science fiction short story suitable for all ages -- including adults!

Currently available for 99 cents at Smashwords, Amazon (and all the other versions of Amazon), Diesel, B&N (Nook), Sony, Apple iBooks, Kobo, Blio, Inktera, and Versent.

Coming Soon:
• Alphabetization of the stores.
elizabethmccoy: A blue star on a dark blue background, titled "The legend of the morning star" (Legend of the Morning Star)
Though slightly more "mature" than the stories in The Bear Prince (it mentions lovers, without benefit of priests), this folktale entirely free. It is narrated by the opinionated Ches, priest of the wind, who provides a few side-comments here and there.

The Legend of the Morning Star is one of the folktales of the Lord Alchemist universe, but should stand on its own.

elizabethmccoy: A girl with a polar bear, titled "the bear prince." (The Bear Prince)
The Bear Prince, from Sony's ebookstore. I don't know if Sony allows for samples normally -- I don't see a way to get a sample of the book, alas. So going back to http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/42569 should allow that, at least.
elizabethmccoy: A girl with a polar bear, titled "the bear prince." (The Bear Prince)
I am delighted to announce that my small offering (99 cents, three stories and an afterword) is now available from the Apple iBooks store.
elizabethmccoy: A girl with a polar bear, titled "the bear prince." (The Bear Prince)
Since I had some stories that were really unmarketable by me in any traditional form I could think of -- fantasy folktales, when one only has three of them, are a very narrow niche -- I decided to see what could be made of them. I commissioned a cover by the extremely talented [livejournal.com profile] haikujaguar, whose site is Stardancer.org, prodded at the stories for a while, and eventually...

The Bear Prince on Smashwords.
The Bear Prince (and other fantasy folktales) is a collection of three folktales from a fictional universe. When small magics are real, what stories do parents tell their children at night? What tales do storytellers spin, so their listeners will toss them a few coins? Find out, in "The Bear Prince," "The Princess and the Sheep's Wool," and "The Jewel of Moon and Starlight."

(Note that the middle story contains language that may be inappropriate for Earthly children.)
I am, even now, considering if I want to tweak the middle story to make it suitable for Earthly children. The kids of the fictional setting would have no problem with it, but it is just one line and it does adjust which categories and tickyboxes I use, and the other two stories don't have that issue.

(Edit: Alas, I have compromised Artistic Integrity to woo the tickybox. The change is being uploaded now.)

When I have determined if I'm going to make that change or not, I'll authorize it for other venues, such as B&N's Nook-store, and the Apple iBookstore.

Word-count is a bit over 6,000 words. 35% of the book is available as a sample. Cost for the whole thing is $0.99, so that it can appear on the Apple iBookstore. I would have chosen a different price (probably more like 49 cents), but Apple won't go that low.

I am very excited to present this ebook to the world!
