Lisa Shea Pixie Series

Cornish Pixie in Whitinsville

I’m in trouble! My awesome narrator for my Whitinsville pixie series just finished book 1 – it was absolutely perfect. She’s starting in on book 2 now. I haven’t written book 3 yet!!

Ack!! How many things can I write at once? What are you guys up to?

Here’s book 1 – it’s FREE – give it a read and let me know what you think!

Lisa Shea Newgate Prison

Newgate Prison Copper Mines

Hurrah! Hurrah! Book 1 is now live!! It’s novella length, 32000 words (about half of a typical novel).

Here’s the rough starting point for book 2’s cover. It’s interesting how the exact same gold looks so different against a light background!

What are you up to today?

Newgate Prison Copper Mine

OK I’m putting it live!

Book one in my 1773 sweet romance novella!

Here’s the cover I ended up with, at least to start.

Thank you all for your help with this!!

I decided to go with “sweet romance” rather than “romantic suspense” in my subhead, as my stories are gentle and soft.

Any other suggestions as I roll this live? I’m still happy to send out PDFs for feedback!

Book 2 is about 2/3rds done.

Robin Hood Russell Crowe

Medieval Romance Book 16

Hurrah! Hurrah! All my rewatching of Robin Hoods has paid off. My 16th medieval romance novel is now ready to go live!

I just finished up the final read-though. I’m heading to sleep. When I wake up again I’ll be posting it onto Amazon!

Thank you all for your support and encouragement!

What are you up to today?

Destiny Interrupted Lisa Shea

Destiny Interrupted Narrator

Hurrah! I think I’ve found the narrator to read my 31-part time travel series! Elizabeth and Robert are reborn during the Civil War, in feudal Japan, during the Trail of Tears, at the Library of Alexandria, and more. Fate tosses them together and rips them apart.

So happy this is getting done.

What are you guys up to today?

Newgate Prison

Hurrah! Hurrah! My trip to Newgate Prison in East Granby is still on for Tuesday!!!! This will finally release the block on a series of novellas I write, and also start up an entirely new series! I am so thrilled!! I’m going to be in prison tomorrow!! 🙂 Let me know if you’d like a card 🙂


Three of Rods

Traditional meaning: You’ve made your plans and are now working through them. Your path is solid so far. You are able to look even further into the future. To think about additional opportunities.


You need to be ready to accept changes as part of this. Risk, too. But the path is strong beneath your feet.

This is a card of success, often coming after a period of difficulty.


The card also represents that external help may be offered. If so, consider accepting it. We all help each other out.

Aquarian Deck:

The first things to catch my eye are the three rods. They look strong. Steady. Almost phallic with energy. They have beautiful flowers on their top, representing both beauty and strength.


However, the character doesn’t seem to see them. The person looks between them. The person doesn’t see the strength that is all around.

Our main character’s back is turned to the viewer. While they are wearing armor on his head and shoulders, the entire back is practically bare. It’s almost as if they are inviting an attack from behind.


The character gazes out into the blankness of space, not looking at anything. The scene in that direction is completely white.
To me this is a card reminding us to be aware. To be attentive. To think about what we have already – and to plan for what is to come. To watch for those challenges and dangers.


Still, the character has strength. They have on armor. They are in a position of protection. They just need to do a bit more research. Become a bit more aware.


Cloister Deck:

The imagery is wholly different with this card. Where the Aquarian deck has an empty world, this one is entirely about the world. The person is in a beautiful purple cloak and hat, comfortably standing on shore. They are looking out to three ships actively sailing off into the distance. I can’t help but think about the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. That’s what comes to mind when I see three ships. They are off to explore new horizons. Take on new challenges. This is a card of joy and prosperity.

Or are they coming in? Are the ships bringing in bounty, having survived who-knows-what challenges?
