Now Available – The Dragon’s Attempt at Revenge

“When the dragon flies again, The Three shall unite and conquer all!”

Both the chimera and Alesstros have quoted the so-called prophecy. The battle with Alesstros is over (again) and The Three were defeated (right?). The prophecy was garbage. The purple dragon doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Does he?

Meanwhile, Collin wants Neal to meet his parents. Neal has faced trials, but nothing as painful as in-laws. Brogan the Knight Wanderer never passes on a journey, and before anyone can argue, the gang is back together and on the road to Tournefortii.

Between wedding plans and revenge plots, the Finnalys and their adopted family are bound to land neck-deep in a steaming pile of trouble – which is where Teagan spends most of his time anyway.

The dramatic conclusion to the Finnaly Trio Trilogy will answer the most important question:

Why is it always poop?

The Little Book of Inappropriate Morals

Stories That Aren’t Helpful At All

AVAILABLE APRIL 4!

We talked for a while, until he stumbled off to parts unknown. I was filled with a new sense of purpose that would not manifest itself until I was older (and stronger).

I never saw the old man again, but I never forgot him. I meant it when I said he was my hero. He still is. Meeting him inspired me to become who I am today.

I made my vow there on the park bench while the old man sobbed into his paper bag.

The short stories in this collection will not teach you anything. They will not assist with moral dilemmas. They will not tuck you in at night. They will not do your laundry or take you to the movies.

Within you will find – among other things – examples of poor role models, romances gone wrong, and fables with morals you almost recognize. Mysteries will be solved (at what cost?) and prisoners will be…well, imprisoned. Obviously.

These stories will not help you – unless what you’re really looking for is a good laugh.

The Latest from Holly Geely

Two things: a new short story available for purchase (murder mystery genre parody) and Which Way is Left? is now available as an eBook.

NEW SHORT STORY!!! SILLINESS, MURDER, AN OLD LADY!!!

Opal Gemima Marigold and the Death of Poor Winston

opal gemima marigold

When Opal Gemima Marigold hears that her old friend Winston was murdered, nothing can keep her from the case. There is no danger too great nor any detective too stubborn to stop this retired ballon-stretcher/ex-mercenary/part-time janitor/doily-maker.

Time is of the essence as a string of murders follows (naturally the killer didn’t stop at one) and Opal must determine the most important thing:

Who would want to kill poor Winston?

And the eBook:

Which Way is Left

buy5 buy5._V192240363_Kobo_logo_(2015).svg

front

Olive has nine tickets to the sold out Cylindrical Sludge concert in Nightmare City.  A road trip with friends seems like the perfect way to spend the summer before college, even if she does have to bring her brother along.

What Olive doesn’t realize is that old rivalries, new enmity, and the occasional bout of motion sickness may just ruin the trip for everyone.

Which Way is Left? has a glorious cast of diverse teenagers who poke fun at teenage tropes while also including a spectrum of gender identities.

With extra delightful colour illustrations by Ethaniel Ritchot.

Whether it’s the guardian dog of the underworld, or a massive beast waiting to eat you, you have to know that a big black dog is bad news on Halloween. What you might not have realized is that Hades is a reasonable guy, and rabbits don’t, in fact, wear scarves.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for romance; it’s also for summoning your favourite demons. Christmas is a time for family, but it’s also a time for exploring alternate origins of Santa Claus and a time for reindeer to learn about morality. Oh, and cookies. It’s time for a buttload of cookies.

Traditional Halloween horrors and Christmas joy are mixed with April Fool’s jokes and Christmas murder (among other things) to produce this collection of short stories sure to make you thankful for your own less outrageous traditions.

A PLETHORA OF POOR DECISIONS
And Other Tales of Misadventure

Dearest Raymond,
This letter must remain confidential. I will begin with Lord Bonbon’s confession.
“It’s not even a
good curse,” he said.

Is there a monster living in your garage? Is there a portal in your room you’d rather avoid? Do weddings fill you with ferocious feelings? Are you a spoiled former pop star who has lost your appeal? Are you on an ongoing quest to uncover buried treasure?

Good news: You’re not alone! (You should do something about that portal, though.)

In this dudetastic collection of shorts, hopeless characters make all the wrong choices – whether they realize it or not.

The Dragon’s Unhatched Offspring – Now Available!

covers-BOOKTWO-front

THE DRAGON’S UNHATCHED OFFSPRING:

Brogan and Teagan Finnaly didn’t have to wander far to find trouble. Their battle with Alesstros is over, but it seems that some of his monsters remain. Collin, plagued by almost-memories of the evil sorcerer, and Neal (his loving boyfriend) agree that the monsters must be stopped. Melinda’s always game for a fight, and Kaylan believes he’s the centre of the universe therefore no journey can proceed without him.

That’s when death strikes.

Now Brogan is stuck in Rappa investigating a murder and searching for a missing egg. The Finnaly mansion is crowded with people, but who are the suspects? Where is the thief? And just how much cake can a baby eat?

The answers to these questions, and more, in The Dragon’s Unhatched  Offspring!
