All Good Things...

We’ve been enjoying giving you all little glimpses in to the recent Dragon’s Roost Publications, but, as they say, all good things must come to an end. We will be opening for submissions at the end of this week, which means we will be turning this channel over to it’s normal broadcast signal.

Don’t worry, our plan is to finish out this week with our usual daily excerpts from
Jericho Rising, Jericho’s Redemption, Hell Hath No Fury, and Sex, Gore & Millipedes and then finish the month with a Memorial Day Extravaganza featuring snippets from all three authors.

We may return to our preview schedule at a later date, but we want to make sure that authors who have submitted, or who plan to submit (as well as those who are just interested in the progress of our upcoming anthology) are able to keep track of its progress.

Also, we will be running a Kickstarter campaign to help offset the publication costs. Don’t worry, we’ll let you know when that goes live.

Until then, enjoy the previews!

Jericho Rising Excerpt 2

Jericho Rising

The High Priestess lounged on a plush couch, alone in her suite. She trailed a hand down her black velvet evening gown, tied at the waist with a braided gold cord, and smiled, letting out a sigh. She picked up a plump strawberry from a silver tray that sat on a small table next to her couch and took a bite, chewing it as she stared off into her own little world. She seemed oblivious to the multiple battles that raged both inside and outside of her fortress.
I moved into the doorway with my weapon, my boot dagger—which, amazingly, hadn’t been confiscated—at the ready. “Hello, Mother,” I said.

SGM Excerpt 3

Sex, Gore, & Millipedes

From “Starter Home”

Ben and Leeza went quiet. They looked at him, at each other. This guy was nuts. Tears fell from Ben’s eyes. His hand throbbed hotly.
“Go ... away.”
“Oh, for fuck’s sake, Benjamin,” Manny said. “Is that the best you can do? I just put drywall screws through your hands. Where’s your fire, boy? Rage against me. Cuss at me at least, son.”
He looked at the floor.
“I can’t. I promised.”
Manny shrugged.
“I do love a challenge.”
Saliva hung in a strand from Ben’s lip. Snot bubbled in one nostril. He glared at Manny.
“I hate you.”
“I know. But, you’re gonna hate me a lot more pretty soon.”

Hell Hath No Fury Excerpt 2

A Rose by Any Other Name

The shock on his face made Rose howl with laughter. She pulled his chair away from the window and his face relaxed. Unfortunately for him, she was only moving him back so she could take another run at the window with him. She charged forward and this time, a huge chunk of glass blew out of the window and spiraled down twelve floors to the street.
A crisp cool breeze wafted through the hole in the window. She pushed her boss and his chair to the side. Closing her eyes she let the soft wind blow through her hair and dry the sweat on her face. A peaceful calm washed over her. She turned to her boss.
"It's time for you to go now, Mr. Charles."

Submission Guidelines Coming Soon

I’ve noticed a significant uptick in the number of hits for the Dragon’s Roost Submission page. Don’t worry, we will be asking for submissions soon. There is one more project that we need to complete first. Look for the new guidelines around the end of the month and thanks for your interest!
