Short Story "Rob's Choice" Now Available!

I may have finished the Season Avatars series, but that doesn't mean I'm done with the characters or Challen. I've long planned to write a spin-off series set a generation after the Season Avatars series, mixing old characters and new, putting my own twist on a Victorian country moving into a modern age. I'm not quite ready to write that series yet--I'm still not sure what the series title should be, for one thing--but I'm starting to explore it with some short stories set in the interim.

"Rob's Choice" is the story of Robert, Jenna's son. I plan for him to be one of the protagonists of the first spinoff book, and this story sets up his situation. Maria Zannini of Book Cover Diva did a great job with the cover. Here's the blurb:

All his life, Rob has wanted to dedicate himself to the God of Summer. But when he tries to do so, he discovers the Four Gods and Goddesses of Challen have different plans for him. How can he serve Them and his own wishes at the same time? And what does his strange vision have to do with the barren country of Selath?

Although this story is meant to be a stand-alone, it does contain some spoilers for Summon the Seasons. Naturally, I recommend reading the other books in the Season Avatars series first. I currently have it listed as book 5.5 (6 on Amazon) in the series.

This short story is available for $0.99 at the major ebook retailers. You can access your favorite store through this universal book link.

Congratulations! I've done two spin-offs from my own series, and they're kind of fun, aren't they?
