Thank you for stopping by.  I am pleased to be included in the best selling collection, Summer Shorts: Airing Out Secrets.  Myself, as well as 11 other hot indie authors, are included in this collection of short stories.

Be sure to stop by Smashwords to pick up the eBook, available in nine different formats!  

My friend, Hannelore Moore, is also included in this collection, stop by her blog, she is a very talented author!

Here is an excerpt from one of my stories, "Epiphany".

The floors were large, old, wooden planks. The lighting was soft. I breathed in, the smell of the paper caressed my nose, so warm, old, and inviting. So intoxicating I could almost taste it. After looking around for a bit I returned to the front of the store and purchased the book of the author whom I was coming to see read. I then proceeded to the back of the store to get a complimentary cup of coffee. I thought this was a very nice touch for a private book store. I took a seat and as I sipped the warm aromatic coffee from it's cup I began to read the book and now I was taken to a different world, a world full of fantasy, of dragons and elves, mystery and magic.

Love poetry?  'Whispers, Shouts, and Songs' is also available on Smashwords.

Estelan by Trace Broyles

Sometimes a book needs a facelift   After some discussion with my incredibly talented cover artist we decided ESTELAN was in need of a little nip/tuck.  However, I had no idea that this procedure would result in something so magical.  There are no words to thank my dear friend, Barbara Ivie Green, for her amazing work on my new cover.  Her depiction of female warrior, Kitin, is better than anything I could have imagined.  I cannot wait to see her larger than life, on my banner at Fandom Fest, at the end of the month.  For now, I am VERY pleased to present the new cover for ESTELAN featuring Kitin.

ESTELAN is available in ebook format: AmazonBarnes&NobleSmashwordsSony
and in paperback via Createspace Store and Amazon

“Hey Jeb, look at that white thing on the ground over there. What is it?”
“I don't know Zar, but I think it just came out of that chicken's butt.”
“Hmm, his butt you say? Maybe we should eat it.”
“Eat it?”
“Sure, why not?”
“Why not?” Questioned Jeb. “Maybe because it came out of his butt, that's why not!”
“So?” Asked Zar.
“So, I've never been inclined to eat something that has come out of your butt.”
“Well, maybe you should try it sometime, who knows what you might find.”

Summer Shorts

I am very pleased to announce that I will be included in the upcoming short story collection, 
Summer Shorts: Airing Out Secrets.  
The collection is being released by Durham Editing, a great company that can help you with all your editing and publishing needs.

Here is a little taste of one of my stories titled "Angel".

The figure sauntered on the sidewalk next to the road farthest from my house. Her vision was fixed perfectly forward. She had a long, bright white, full head of hair that curled at the end and sat perfectly on her shoulders. Her dress was simple, dark blue, no detail to it. It was long and almost touched the ground, it looked like a denim material. Over top of the dress she wore a simple white sweater, as white as her hair. Her movement was precise, she stayed focused directly in front of her, she never turned her head and moved at an exact pace. I could not see her feet, but I could tell by the sound of the shuffling beneath her that she must be wearing sandals.

By the way, you are going to want to read the rest of this TRUE story!  Check back here for details in the coming weeks, the book is scheduled to be released on July 12th.

Stop by and see my friend Hannelore Moore's blog.  She is also included in this anthology!  Hannelore is a wonderful writer and she just won an award in the Iron Writer Challenge #17.  You can check out that story, too: on her blog.
