Sins, New and Old

mishaburnett

The fourth volume of Chastity Nicole and Debbie Manber Kupfer’sSins Of Time series of themed Horror/Dark Fantasy anthologies is out now. I’ve kept my streak going, I have a story in all four volumes.

It’s a series that has a special place in my heart. I was originally invited to contribute by Debbie, who is one of the few of my writing contacts I’ve actually met in person. The first one was Sins Of The Past, and at that time we weren’t thinking in terms of a series, Chastity just had the idea for an anthology that mixed Horror with Historical fiction.

I wasn’t sure I wanted to contribute at first, because I couldn’t think of anything to write. I’m not much of historian. Then I was watching one of my collection of B-Movies and I got to thinking about the persistent urban legend about a movie so…

The Paperback is live, the Kindle edition is coming soon

Long-awaited new release from Misha Burnett. I personally cannot wait to read it 🙂

mishaburnett

At long last Bad Dreams & Broken Hearts is out in paperback.

The Kindle edition has been uploaded and should be available in a few days.

It’s been an interesting process.

Generally when I write the pieces all either come together and jell right away, or they never do.

I first invented the city of Dracoheim and the Settled Lands and the Realms of Nightmare for another project altogether.

The first project that I called Bad Dreams & Broken Hearts was a novel, and it was a deliberate attempt to write a Rodger Zelazny-style mythic adventure, with an immortal character who interacted with Gods and Monsters. I had a main character who I named Sam, after the protagonist of Lord Of Light. He was the son of a Lord of Nightmare, and I was trying for a Noir/Fantasy spin on Little Nemo In Slumberland.

Well, I finished that novel…

Wanda’s Wand – an early review

WandaWandKindleCover

Woke up to an awesome five star review on Readers’ Favorite for my upcoming picture book, Wanda’s Wand.

“Independence is a good thing, but sometimes we’re all just a little too independent. When something goes wrong or gets broken, we feel compelled to fix the problem ourselves. But sometimes our fixer-uppers just don’t work right. That’s what happened to Wanda. While playing with her cat, Whiskey, Wanda Wizzlewoop (I love the last name, great alliteration!) broke her wand. She concocts a means to fix it, but her fixer-upper wand does everything backward, upside down and really strange – like casting a spell to stop the rain and instead it rains frogs and toads. Not exactly what Wanda had in mind. Upset, she’s startled when Whiskey asks her what’s wrong and then informs her, quite simply, that “it’s okay to ask for help”. And it is okay. Something we all need to do from time to time.

“Deborah Kupfer’s picture book story, Wanda’s Wand, is a fun read. Young readers will find Wanda’s situation both sad and, at times, rather funny. Accompanied by colorful illustrations by artist Tina Wijesiri, the story is full of silliness as Wanda’s situation worsens with each attempt to make use of her broken (and then mended) wand. Part of growing up is learning how to fix things, how to solve problems, but it’s also about learning to ask for and accept help when the need arises. A powerful message shared with the love and compassion of a young witch and her treasured cat. The language is simple to appeal to young readers and may also be used as a read-along, early reader for those beginning to read.”

Thank you Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite
