The Queen of Swans (Wild Swans)

Elisa, the Queen of Swans, has lived a thousand years. Her brothers, who she was supposed to free from their spell, have gone missing. While the world struggles with recovering from a winter eclipse, a conspiracy slowly unfolds–entangling her life with the elves and humans once more. In this volume, the protagnists from Volume 1, “Red Riding Hood,” also return.  One man seeks a new life with his lady-love and the other seeks out answers to his own questions as to who he might be. Meanwhile magic begins its return to the Northernlands.

    • Hm. The bad thing about how I constructed this site was that most of the content sits on pages which WordPress doesn’t add to the RSS (looking into a plugin that will do that). So I often trigger the RSS using the posts at the top level hierarchy ( . I seemed to have blown up the link to feedburner in oneo f my updates, so will add that again. If I ever figure out how to do a workaround that is more specific/targeted for the serial itself, I’ll ping you. Have to mull through this further.

    • In any case, your comment made me realize I lost feedburner off the bar! I have no idea why but glad you did poke me!

    • Yes – I decided to take a summer break more or less. Doing other things that I wanted to enjoy and also taking time for personal things. I haven’t yet decided when to resume since I’m basically writing the “end” but I expect I’ll be back in a month.

      • Ok, enjoy your summer!
        I’m just excited to see how you bring all these different characters & storylines together. Plus, I’m on summer break too so I’ve been checking on my favourite stories online and ploughing through library books.
        Have a lovely holiday 🙂

        • Thanks — had some unfortunate things happen recnetly and so it’s been a much longer break than I had hoped. Trying to regroup now and get the ending all written down before I Return! Thank you so much for writing and letting me know you’re out here!

  1. I hope that the unfortunate things have resolved, dear Puppetmaster, with as little fuss and with the best outcome possible.

    I faithfully check each week hoping for the next installment of your wonderful story. I fear that when the next chapter does get posted I shall be so overcome with joy that I will race through to the end just to find out what happens, only to be left with a cliffhanger that will leave me anxiously awaiting the next week. ‘Tis a vicious cycle that can only be resolved by taking a long hiatus from reading, but I have not the patience for such silly things. Just know that your greedy fanbase is out there, patiently (or not so patiently, in my case) awaiting your return.

    • thank you — I am resettling in now and likely on break for a while yet. Queen of Swans deserves an ending and it will get one, but am reconciling myself to the ending I need to write ;_;

  2. I know i know you said earlier you are resettling and all. Just want to let you know i am one of those impatient ones but waiting patiently :p
    All the best of luck with your personal life and your writing. Keep up the good work 🙂 (y)
