The action-packed initial episodes of my serial fantasy adventure/romance novel Silver Buckshot are available online. A new episode is added every Sunday.
This uses the new Kindle Vella platform, which is specially designed for episodic stories. The first three episodes of every story are free. After that, you pay, but they hand you 50,000 words worth of “tokens” just for showing up, so it’ll be a while.
I leverage my own experiences in this book for that extra realism in spite of the fantasy elements. Flavia’s polio is based on my father’s, for instance.
Silver Buckshot: Magic, Mystery, and a Most Aggravating Boyfriend
Thirteen-year-old Princess Flavia has endured a lot recently. Polio crippled her legs and killed her mother, her father is sunk in grief, and her servants veer between negligence and cruelty. She takes refuge in her books and never complains. But she draws the line at being murdered. She enlists fourteen-year-old Frank Barron, fresh from the California side of the gateway and the world’s most aggravating boy, to conceal her when the coup attempt begins. Things get interesting after that…
