Dragonmas 2019 Player Challenge has gone live on Dragon Hearts RPG

It's Dragonmas! Fetu is still behaving suspiciously good. What long game is he playing? Or is he just trying to get presents? Did he just resurrect that blasted frost dragon? And a return of the fruitcake? The quirky game I write for has a new seasonal challenge live at rpg. What ultimately happens this season? It is up to the players to decide.

Website Updated, and Podcast Uploaded

Regarding the Main Web Site

The main website has been updated and the publication catalogs made current. It will now be easier for me to update when new things need to be added. Also on the main site itself I have added a specific page to list all the print, ebook, or audiobook projects I have taken part in either as a staff member of another publisher or as a freelancer. I have done this in the spirit of cross promotion as every time a copy of those titles finds another reader or listener is goo for all parties concerned in the production.

If I have taken part in a project of yours and you want it listed please feel free to contact me.

Since the main site is now able to be more dynamic you will notice the links in the side of this blog changing as I work through choosing what to redirect, collapse, or delete. My goal is to tie them together more organically.

Podcast Episode

I have not had a chance to write any flash fictions that I am satisfied with, although I have been submitted another provocative one by Maxaxle that it slated for next week. This week I have chosen to release an episode reading from Arthur Waley's translation of "One Hundred Seventy Chinese Poems" or "170 Chinese Poems" which is freely available on

Stories of Spirits (audiobook) is starting to hit stores

Stories of Spirits is rolling out slowly, probably slowed down a bit by the holiday avalanche that hits every year that then has to be processed. This post may or may not see updates as I find it has gone live to different locations. In either case it will get listed in the backup tabs here on the blog as I wait to see when the edits I have been trying to make for the main site (the past two years now) will be able to be pushed live. I suspect that by that time I will already have a few things that will need updated yet again.

In any case...

Stories of Spirits has an audiobook version available (and rolling out) finally. These five short stories are written with a Japanese setting in mind and some of the stories include vocab words as one of the ideas of that project was to help introduce new words and concepts to my kids. Thus the language and structure is also simple. Most of them also happen to ping in on Amehana's childhood and incarnations into her kami self between lifetimes spent as human. She can be found banging about in Selkies' Skins, Dragon Shaman, and will slip in and out of the Shadow Chronicles as I get around to reconstructing those particular tales with Willow/Angelina and Flightessa with the overlapping worlds within the various series.

Stories of Spirits
Written and Narrated by Teresa Garcia

Five short stories of dragon spirits and ancestors, in a Japanese milieu. Some are set in ancient times, others are more modern. Each short story that has new vocabulary has a mini-glossary of Japanese terms that were utilized.
