Short Story by Dani

Hi dear blog readers,

How's everyone doing? I hope this finds you well and in good spirits. 

I miss being here, but I haven't had any new stories to post. All the ones I have are unfinished, and the ones you know have been published for Kindle. "No Strings Attached" would be my next big project, but I haven't gotten around to it as I've been working on new stories and making sure my published ones are good to go. 

The past almost two years have been a doozy, to say the least. I know we are all trying to get through this as good as possible. For me, my writing has kept me occupied, but it hasn't been easy. I work in healthcare, and it's been tough and very stressful to the point of burnout. Life has thrown me a few curveballs, and I tried to deal with it as best as I could. 

Anyway, I was looking through old files and folders yesterday, and I came upon this unfinished idea of a short story. I had about five pages written on it, and when I read it, I decided I needed to finish this gem. I think at the time I wrote this, it was kind of an experiment, but it deserved to be finished, and so I did this yesterday. It also brought back my story "Caoimhe's Hands" to my mind again, which has been sitting patiently on my computer, waiting to be finished. 

I thought about where to post this short story, and the blog came into my memory. The story is fantasy romance; it is probably not overly devy, but it's romantic in a way. I enjoyed finishing it yesterday, and I wanted to share it with you. I hope you enjoy reading it; let me know if you did. 

I miss you and sending hugs out to you.

Yours truly, Dani

New ebook in the making

Hi everyone!

This is a (slightly modified) repost from the original post that I scheduled for the wrong day. Sorry, Catarina!😅

I know it‘s been a very long time!! Ahhh… I’m so sorry! I literally have no excuse, life just happened. Picture me slinking in quietly again as if the past year hadn't happened (I mean... has it for anyone, really?).

I have great news! I’m currently working on publishing my story from this blog, Lobster with a straw, as an ebook. It took me a while to edit it but I’m finally done!! Yes, yes, yes! I added some chapters and a (steamy… 😊) epilogue and I hope you’ll very much like it. I got so much help from the incredible trio Rowan, Annabelle and Devo Girl - kudos, kisses and hugs to you three. I love you! So dear reader, if you are excited about this news, consider it their achievement.

I don’t have a publication date yet and I got overwhelming replies from those of you who read the original version of this post, calling for beta readers. Thank you so much to those who volunteered so quickly! I'm forever grateful and eagerly awaiting your feedback.

You can find the first, revised chapter of the new ebook here.




PS: I am already working on new chapters of “Not Gay” as a thank you to those awesome beta readers I could win! 😊

Onde Anda Você is back!

 Oh wow, has it really been a whole month? If you wanna re-read the previous chapter or haven't checked it out, here's an easy link. I kept trying to finish this chapter, and when I did, I kept trying to post it but couldn't find the time. But fear not, I bring good news! I managed to get past it, I feel like the next ones will flow so much better. 

Here's the much awaited (I hope) chapter eleven!

I hope to make it next week. I've a bunch written already. Please please please let me know what you think! I'm worried the story is too... Stretched? What do you think? Should I try and be more concise and tie the loose ends already, or this pace feels nice for you? I've been writing it for so long that I can't really tell, haha 

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts! Be if from the comment box, or my email
