You may recall a post I did a couple weeks ago talking about the new Watersong short story I wrote called “Forgotten Lyrics.” It’s out today, and I’m really excited for you to check it out.

Don’t miss this new short story set in the magical world of Watersong—a realm of enchanting beauty…and terrifying secrets. 

Aggie is a mythological creature on a secret mission. Lydia is a young woman from a magical family with no real powers of her own. And Daniel is a high school boy who’s made it his duty to protect his deeply troubled older brother. Then one fateful night, their lives collide in a terrifying accident that changes them all forever. And beneath the surface, the ripple effects of the accident will have more impact than anyone could ever guess…changing not only their future, but the fate of an entire town.

Here’s the blog I wrote on it before, which answers some of the questions you may have on it: read here.

Forgotten Lyrics” is a short story (roughly a quarter of the length of of the first book in the Watersong series, Wake), but it is a complete story. If you haven’t read Wake yet, you can still read and enjoy “Forgotten Lyrics.” When I was writing it, I wanted to make sure that anyone could pick it up and understand it.

And if you have read Wake, I think you’ll find a new appreciation and deeper understanding of the characters after reading “Forgotten Lyrics.” I think it illuminates a few things and answers some questions you may have.

Here are some links so you can get “Forgotten Lyrics” if you’re interested:
Get “Forgotten Lyrics” for $1.99 from Barnes & Noble for the Nook
Get “Forgotten Lyrics” for $1.99 from Amazon for the Kindle
Get “Forgotten Lyrics” for $1.99 from iBookstore for your phone or tablet
Get “Forgotten Lyrics” for $1.99 from the Kobo store

I really enjoy the world of Watersong, and I hope that you’ll check out “Forgotten Lyrics.”

But on a more serious note, I wanted to say that my thoughts are with those affected by Hurricane Sandy. I also want to encourage anyone who can afford it to donate to the Red Cross and ASPCA, who are working hard to help the people and animals in need.
