Throughout history people have sought after ways to gain immortality.
Some would stop at nothing to find and achieve this.
For the body to remain young and never to die . . .
Who, after all, wouldn’t want that?

Not Xian, who became immortal overnight after having mistakenly drunken an Elixir of Life, in ancient China. In fact, it is the last thing she could have wished for! After all, she has lost both her parents and her younger sister in a terrible accident. Ever since she is heartbroken and riddled with guilt. Why should she want to extend her suffering by living longer than necessary, let alone live forever?

Alas, as much as she tries to end her life, she finds time and again, she cannot. Her body is invincible and healthier than ever. A thousand years of searching for an antidote leads to nothing, including locating the mysterious Eight Immortals: legendary god-like beings who possess the secrets of nature.
One day she receives an optimistic clue: The Eight are about to gather to celebrate the Queen Mother, Xi Wang Mu’s birthday on the Western mountain paradise of Mount Kunlun. There, they will feast on the magical peaches which ripen every 3000 years so that they, once again, can extend their longevity.

Thus, Xian travels to Kunlun where the celebration in the Queen’s palace and her enchanting gardens are held.
Will one of the mysterious guests know of a way to end her immortality or will she have to live on until eternity with her painful memories?

Forgiving and loving yourself is often the hardest, but what if it’s the only way?

This is the third stand-alone story in The Lesbian Romance Mythology Series that covers lesser known myths from all around the world, retelling and reshaping them, and giving them lesbian twists.
Just as ‘The Immortal’ is based on Chinese myth and legends, the other two novellas, ‘The Cursed’ is based on an Irish myth and ‘The Taken’ on a Native-American tale.
In total there will be around 15 books covering many cultures around the world.
Collect them all!

A percentage of the sales of this book will go to : suicidepreventionlifeline.org

FREE WITH KINDLEUNLIMITED

I will be very happy if you could let me know what you thought of it by leaving me a review, thank you! One sentence is all it takes and the more reviews, the more exposure the book gets. Tell your friends and feel free to share (:

COMING SOON: NEW BOOK!

THEIMMORTALteaser1Dear Readers,

For those of you enjoy my mythology stories you’ll be pleased to know that, after a slight delay, I have finally written “THE END” for the third book in the series. These are all stand alone stories so can be enjoyed separately, as you may already know, and cover all cultures around the world. Every book is based on a myth of long ago, which I rewrote completely and added strong lesbian main characters.

Book 1 was ‘The Cursed’ a twist on the ancient tale of Lir’s Children which you can find here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018W8ICF6/ 
Book 2 was ‘The Taken’ a Native-American tale: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MQKJTY4/.

Book 3 is ‘The Immortal’ and will be published at the beginning of April, and you’ll be the first to know the exact date, so watch your inbox!
I am not a commercial writer and don’t write what the public wants or needs. That has never been my goal. First and foremost I write for myself, second I hope to stir something in people: make them think, make them feel, and at best make them act differently towards themselves and others. With more understanding, kindness, compassion and love. Through my stories I hope to reach other people’s minds and hearts. My characters all go through certain changes; changes I think might reflect the reader’s own lives, or at least they will be able to empathise, if not relate.

‘The Immortal’ has been one of the hardest stories for me to write to date. ‘Quarterling’ was another one which was at times difficult for me emotionally as it deals with themes close to my heart as well. It can delay writing greatly as I need to muster a lot of inner strength and motivation to keep going. I often wonder why I do it, especially since I know not many people buy these stories as they don’t have violence, murder, evil or fighting, let alone much magic, or even a lot of romance or erotica, as is so common in other works in my field. But going on I must until I reach the finish line. This project is very much a labour of love. Stories want to be written at certain times in a writer’s life. They come to us when we are ready to tell them. When we are capable of telling them. For me, they don’t leave me alone until it’s done and I can release my breath and send them out into the world.
Writing is a lonely profession whereby one can only hope that the final story will bring some joy and hope to those that read it.
Normally I write Fantasy and I have much more space for creativity and can unleash my imagination and have more fun. With this series I have to stick to certain historical and cultural correct facts, so these stories require a lot more research than any of my other books. ‘The Immortal’ also covers subjects that I have experienced personally. The main subjects are loss, grief and guilt. In more than one way writing this story has been therapeutic for me and it has made me work through my own
But don’t despair, this story is not all doom and gloom and dark as you might think now. It’s also light at times, with a bit of sarcasm and down to earthness, yet spiritual, and full of hope. I will be giving snippets over the coming days on my social media and will run a give-away so you can be among the first to read it!

I will also be publishing the first three books in a discounted book bundle. Stay tuned.

Keep reading, keep smiling and until next time!

LAST 3 WEEKS OF PROMO BOOK 1 UNTIL BOOK 2 IS RELEASED OCTOBER 13TH

********#Fantasy #Series ********
Book 1: http://smarturl.it/calloffthesearch?IQid=qr FREE in KindleUnlimited
Book 2: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N2U9GE6 (pre-order)

The comyentis are different; beautiful and mysterious, possessing powers of which humans can only dream. And for this, they are hated, persecuted. For millennia, humanity has murdered and enslaved the peaceful comyentis wherever they find them. Jealous of their ability to merge their minds with animals to use their powers, to empathise with other beings on a deep spiritual level and even hear their thoughts, they seek out and destroy them.
Half-breed Sula, one of the last of her kind, lives in hiding. With not just her own life but her whole species’ held precariously within her hands, she feels the weight of her responsibility. As loneliness and alienation slowly engulf her, an attractive young human enters her world and she is torn. Should Sula trust him? Can she afford not to? Will she be able to overcome her aversion to humans to save her species from extinction? A life as a wandering hermit, or risk everything for love?
Sula’s life becomes further complicated when she meets another comyenti and is forced to make a decision. Follow her head or her heart? ***
