Announcement from Kim Pritekel:
Hello, everyone!!! I need help. Do any of you out there write fluent Gaelic, or know someone that does?

Announcement from Geonn Cannon:
I don't usually announce new stories. I'm usually all about just posting it and letting the feedback rolll in. <g> But I'm making an exception for a pretty unique story. It's called "Better Angels," and it's available now as a free PDF download from my website.

It's not my usual fare, although the basic "girl meets girl" element is definitely there. It's close-but-not- quite novel-length, and I decided I would go ahead and offer it for free, online, as a thank you to all the fans who have waited so long for the arrival of my novel Gemini (it's almost here, I promise this time! :D)

So follow the link and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy it!

Summary: Detective Riley Parra is living a hard life, jumping from bed to bed and drinking to try and quiet the nightmares of the night she nearly died. When she's called to a strange crime scene in the city's "No Man's Land," she finds herself dragged into a deeper mystery about her destiny, and exactly why her life was spared.

In 1874 Cecilia Natashia Dupuin, a new graduate of a Parisian finishing school, is summoned to a secluded château on the outskirts of Grenoble, France. She thought her employment to be writing a simple vanity memoir for the Lady of the household. However, Cecilia soon finds herself caught up in a dark and fantastical tale centered on the mysterious history of the château. Will Cecilia be pulled into the unholy darkness of the château, or will she escape the seductive nature of the beast that hides within the shadows?
