Psst. Title Reveal...

I just hit “The End” on the rough draft of my next book. It feels so good that this first book in the new Valkyrie Bestiary series officially has a title. 

Drum roll please…..Here it is:

Dragons Don’t Eat Meat

In the next few months, I’ll polish it up you’ll be able to follow the series’ progress here: Valkyrie Bestiary.

In the mean time, here is a little tease from the rough draft.

This new series takes place in a post-apocalyptic Montreal, a world where city-states are the only havens in a landscape that has been ravaged by magical wars. Our hero, Kyra Greene, runs her own business, wrangling fae pests. But an exterminator with a soft heart finds herself the caretaker of a whole menagerie of exotic critters.

In this scene, Kyra has just fought and wounded a poacher she found trying to trap a thunder of dragons. One little blue dragon keeps getting in her way.

I raised my sword for the killing blow.

And the clumsy blue dragon bumped into me again.

“Quit it!” I said turning my attention away from the unconscious poacher.

The dragon sat back on his haunches and watched me. His stubby wings flared open and closed like bellows breathing air into his lungs. He stood no taller than my hip, with dark blue scales on his limbs grading to lighter blue on his pear-shaped belly. He had the big, copper eyes of an anime character and a blunt snout, speckled with silver freckles. A soft fluff of blue feathers crested his head.

He was ridiculously cute.

“This is your fault.” I pointed my sword at the poacher. The little dragon wagged his tail.
