Fairy Things

There are fairies in my house. I've seen them. They keep peeking at me. They're a lot taller than I expected - maybe that's the domestic fairy. The ones in the wild are definitely diddy.

I wondered today - if I could shape-shift, what would I become? And if I was a good enough shaman to become one creature, then why not another?


Slightly related to the above; although I am 23,000 words into the main novel - oh dear - I now have another on the go. It was meant to be a 5000 word short story but I couldn't get it down to less than 6200. And it ended with a beginning - so it's crying out to be a series.

If you like fantasy horror, bitter revenge and terrifying beasts with deadly, suppurating wounds - then this might appeal. It's called Magenta Shaman.


  1. Hi Lil,
    Sounds intriguing - can you juggle two at once though (steady)? I did the same and found it best to focus on one.
    Keep up the good work and good luck with it.

  2. I just split my personalities - I have a few to select from.

    No, seriously. Not sure yet. We'll see...

    Thanks for your encouragement Col.
