New Excerpt

I had the idea for a new series a while back...shapeshifter set in Denver. But when I started writing, the hero ended up being from another dimension. So I was, NO, ROBIN, NO! Celta is a niche market as it is! Do not write another niche market! But I've gone back and looked at it and I really like the story. I've been thinking about it for the last few days. I could, of course, make up a whole shifter society in this world as so many others have, but I'm still not sure.

So here's a taste for your comments (and I'm trying out the google drive feature until I can whip up my website).

Do you have more?
It really caught my interest!
Need more...
Please, please.

Really, it has a bit o Celta, a touch of Lladrana, a smell of Mystic Circle, but a complete new flavor.
I think it will be great if you continue with it.

That was great! Robin, there are many shifter series out there, and many try to separate themselves from the pack by the twists they add. (pun intended). But your story really *is* different. One of the things you are known for is the quality of your world-building. I don't know about niche markets, but good fantasy and terrific world building say large market to me!

How do you get past the first page of Google Docs? I click on the link, sign in to Google Docs, then it just takes me to the home page.

Ellen, I use Firefox and when I link, it shows all the pages in a bar on the left and scrolls the 4 pages, 2 at a time in the main window. So I am not sure what to tell you.

Oh My Goodness, more please. You hooked me & I'm not even sure if the guy is a good guy or not. A large glowing baby shapeshifter. I have to say I'm with everyone else... more please.
