Amaranth is a vasai, born with both male and female characteristics and forbidden from sexual relations with any but the ruling class. Ash is a chel, a member of the underclass. Their unlawful passion ignites a rebellion and transforms their world.
Last year I posted Amaranth & Ash free in serial form on my blog and linked to it from this community. Now, it's been accepted by publisher Loose Id. Amaranth & Ash will be released on June 1 with a gorgeous cover by artist P.L. Nunn!
To celebrate, I've posted a free short story about Amaranth's early days in the files section of my Yahoo! newsletter group:
The story covers a little bit of history between young Amaranth and Grail when they were trainees at the Temple. Amaranth is always getting in trouble with his instructors for asking the wrong questions. This time, he's gone too far, and Grail has to make a choice.
If you're interested, joining is easy and the group is low-traffic. It's a moderator-posts-only Yahoo! group used solely to announce my new releases, free fiction postings, and author events. We all get enough email, I won't needlessly send you more.
