Angels Unbound: Asbeel (an a-to-z post)

 Asbeel

So... Here we are at A-to-Z 2016. As with every year that I've done this, I'm behind schedule, and that was after taking last year off so that I would be ready for this year! Well, you know about plans and life and everything that means, I'm sure.

My general tendency would be to explain all about the genesis of all of this -- and I want to! -- but, honestly, I just don't have time, right now, to do that. Maybe I'll get to it later in the month? Or, more likely, it will end up in an author's note somewhere. Anyway...

Here's a summary just so you'll know what you're getting:

Angels Unbound is a sequence of short stories about -- you guessed it! -- Angels.There's an Angel for each letter of the alphabet, and each story is self-contained, meaning that it can be read on its own. However, as with everything I do, it's more complicated than that. There are some plot lines that run through multiple stories. Because I am presenting them alphabetically, they are not being told linearly, so, if you read them all, expect there to be some hopping around. But, then, that's why each story is self-contained.

The catch is that not all of the stories are written, yet. In fact, most of them aren't written yet. On those days, I will have a short character blurb for the Angel whose story has not yet been told. On days like today, when there is a story, there will be a link to that story, and, yea!, it will be FREE! If I feel inspired, there might be some blurb about that Angel's character, too, but not today. It's too spoilery. No, I can't even tell you what Asbeel's name means without giving something away.

Oh, before I give you the link, these stories, many of them, at any rate, probably most, today's for sure, are very adult in nature. Seriously. There's sex. Explicit. I'm just warning you, okay. This is not one to get for your kids. I'm saying that because my other stuff (House, Spinner, Tea Kettle) has all been stuff you could give to the kids. Not this.

Okay, are we clear on that? Good.

With that said, go pick up "Asbeel"! As I said, today, it's FREE! You can't really beat FREE!

  1. One for each letter of the alphabet? Clever. And a huge project. I can see why you didn't do this last year.

      But, last year, I had 0 stories even by the time we'd hit March.

  3. Wow! Well there's an idea! I can't imagine writing a whole story for each letter. I mean last year I drabbled, which is technically that, but a 100 word story is a different thing than a real story.

    1. Hart: It was, indeed, an idea. I just wish I'd had the time to get more of them finished.

    1. Gail: There is no adult content in my posts, so there is nothing to warn anyone of in that respect.

  5. Alright, got it downloaded. It'll be interesting to read an adult natured book by you. I'm used to your other books. It'll be a bit before I can get to it. I'm super slammed at work right now. But I'm looking forward to it for sure. Good luck with the A-Z. Last time I did it, I was worn out by the end but it was a ton of fun.

  7. I appreciate the warning. So often I go to get something unsuspecting, and "whoa! that's not what I expected." That's why I'm so grateful when people just tell me straight up when a read has adult content. Thanks!
