Uncollected Anthology: Winter Witches

My Winter Witches story for the Uncollected Anthology

Coming very soon!

 

uncollected: not collected or gathered together.
anthology: a collection of selected literary pieces.
oxymoron: a combination of words that have opposite or very different meanings.

The Uncollected Anthology series is indeed an oxymoron. Sprung from the minds of six fabulous authors who love fantasy, short stories, and each other’s writing, the series’ main goal is to bring you quality urban fantasy fiction.

The October Edition of the Uncollected Anthology Series is: Winter Witches. Tales of blue sky, snow, renewal, hearth, and magic…

My story is called “The Witch of Budapest.” –

Budapest, 1936. Magdalena Lazarus, the last of the Lazarus witches, seeks her inheritance in the lair of the notorious vampire Count Bathory. Despite her mother’s death, Magda must outlast the winter of her heart. A short story set in the world of the Lady Lazarus series.

New Science Fiction Release: NETHERWOOD

new science fiction adventure release by Michele Lang

At long last, my SF adventure NETHERWOOD is available again at these fine retailers:

Nook
Kobo
Amazon/Kindle

I’ll edit to add the additional platforms and the POD link when they go live.

“Laced with romance, this high-tech, futuristic, scifi adventure is full of suspense and danger.” -SciFi Chick

A subversive, thrilling tale of the Singularity’s dark side…and a love so intense it has the power to transform the world.

Talia Fortune, intergalactic sheriff, hunts a dangerous outlaw through cyberspace and into the Real. The chase brings Talia face-to-face with the terrifying truth — humanity, and Talia herself, unknowingly stand in the shadows of a high-tech apocalypse driven by artificial intelligence.

Talia must find the courage to trust the same man who destroyed her illusions and led her into danger, and disappear into an untamed, alien wilderness where no ordinary rules apply…

This edition features bonus material, including a short story set in the Netherwood universe, an interview with the author, and more.

I’ll be releasing more stories in this universe and will keep you posted! I thought I was done with Talia and her weirdly beautiful world, but she and her compatriots in the Gray Forest aren’t out of trouble yet, not by a long shot…

Coming Soon

Work of Darkness web electronic cover

 

Trapped Between Love and Death…

Jennifer Bridges wakes up in a hospital where she is the only patient. She can’t remember anything about the car wreck that killed her mother. And her nightmares speak of mysteries that she cannot solve alone. Only one man can help her find a path to freedom…

A new paranormal romance story coming in July…

Coming Soon: Two New Releases

A lot of fun stuff to share…

But first, a quick update on how things are going out here. I got slammed along with the rest of the tri-state area by Superstorm Sandy and the big snowstorm that came the week after. So I have been offline for a long time. It gave me time to think (and scheme) and ultimately that is all for the good. But I am still reeling from the  suffering of all the people here who are still grappling with the aftermath of these storms. And also amazed by the awesomeness of so many of my friends and neighbors :)

On to the stories. I have stories in two new anthologies that are coming out in the next few weeks, and wanted to show you the beautiful covers and give you a quick overview of each. I had such a great time writing these two very different stories, and will give you the heads up again when they go live.

“The Phoenix of Mulberry Street”

A short story set in the rich, lush, gorgeous historical fantasy universe of Mercedes Lackey’s Elemental Masters. Muckraker and Fire Master Jane Emerson rescues a mysterious little match girl and does battle with a robber baron with a dragon’s lust for treasure. Magic on the Lower East Side in 1885…I loved writing this story, in this world. Publishers Weekly called this story “complex and evocative.”

I think the other stories in this collection are masterful! Out December 4th…here are some purchase links for you:

“Fade Away and Radiate”

A futuristic tale of betrayal and redemption on a faraway snow-blasted planet. Set in my Netherwood universe, and featuring Anika Bowman, an interplanetary gardener running  for her life from the truth back on Earth. She can’t resist the brash, sexy as hell, genetically-modified soldier hell-bent on saving her from corporate murderers…love found in a dangerous time.

This looks to be an amazing anthology of futuristic romance stories, coming out in January — I’m looking forward to reading these stories myself. Here are the buy links:
