I AM SO EXCITED.
I have a new novel out today! YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY!
Here’s the blurb:
Tong Yi lives in Taiwan and works as a messenger for Huli Transport—a company that specializes in delivering messages and packages for non-humans. He values his oath to the company and makes heroic efforts to ensure the messages entrusted to him arrive safely and on time.
However, between the awesome motorcycle he rides who insists of “dancing” with him by fishtailing and trying to dump him every chance she gets, and the brewing war between the non-humans, “…or die trying” seems more likely with every message he delivers.
And then his brother turns up as a combatant, and possibly his enemy…
If you enjoy Chinese myths and legends woven into a modern story, you’ll love “The Immortals’ War.”

I actually loved writing this “novel”. I sometimes put quotes around that because this story is actually told in six parts.
The first three were written as stories for the Uncollected Anthology series (www.UncollectedAnthology.com) But I needed to go much longer, I knew, to finish Tong Yi’s story. The short story format wouldn’t work any more–there was too much background that would need to go into each independent story in order for it to make sense. So I stopped trying to write independent pieces, though this story continued to want to come out in pieces.
The stories are:
Dancing With Tong Yi
War On All Fronts
The Sweet Shop
Girls’ Night Out
The Immortals’ War
Kiss. And Make Up.
There will be other Huli Transport stories. I’m just about to write the next one. I also have lots of notes for the next novel as well.
I love this new world, that I can tell a story however I choose. I get to create the extended universe, or not, and publish them all.
I hope you enjoy this novel as much as I enjoyed writing it.
