coverThe Demon King’s harem is a dangerous place, with the Snake Mothers constantly battling for prizes and promotion. But the smallest Snake Mother doesn’t want to play the cruel games; she just wants to create beautiful works of art. After a chance meeting with the Celestial Emperor of the West, the White Tiger, she quietly plots to escape Hell and find freedom – and perhaps even love.

‘Black Scales White Fur’ is a novella (shorter than a full novel, longer than a short story) that I”ve put up on a number of digital and print-on-demand platforms as an experiment. If you read it, you’re officially one of my guinea pigs; congratulations and have some kibble.

If kibble isn’t your thing, you can download a digital copy in a variety of formats to suit any ereader, tablet, or computer from Smashwords here  for $3.99.

The Kindle version is available here, also for the grand price of $3.99.

A print-on-demand (paper) version will be available as soon as I view the proofs and approve them.

I haven’t attached DRM to any of the versions; I have no problem with you passing it around to any of your friends who you’d like to introduce to my stories.

What the book’s about: it’s in the Emma/John storyline between the end of ‘Heaven to Wudang’ and the beginning of ‘Dark Serpent’ but has absolutely no spoilers and can be read completely independently.

    I can’t order this on fishpond, and Amazon doesn’t take paypal. Where can I order it in paperback please? I don’t like ebooks much, I find with books up on the shelf I can see the spine of each book and remember the story and be happy about that even when I don’t have time to read them again, and ebooks don’t do that for me.
    I’m really enjoying this saga, and being so packed with real mythology I don’t even have to feel guilty about buying them as I do with the straight-out fantasy novels I enjoy – my oldest daughter is *meant* to be studying mythology and hero stories, and this is the easiest way to get her interest. She likes the Percy Jackson stories too…
    Has anyone put together a directory of authors writing really readable fiction like these based on the various god/hero mythologies around the world?

      Hi Kitty,
      ‘Black Scales’ is only novella size – only 120 pages – so I haven’t bothered with a big print release. I’m planing to write a couple more novellas and then put them together in a proper bindup – that will have a spine wide enough for the title of the book. As it is, it’s available self-published through Amazon’s Createspace as something of an experiment – that has been very successful so far.
      Thank you so much for your kind words – I’m glad that you and your daughter are enjoying the books!

    Hi Kylie,

    Thanks so much for writing this story – I’ve been awaiting the international release of Dark Serpent for some while, with varying levels of patience 🙂 While surfing Amazon UK again this morning I spotted Black Scales White Fur and immediately bought it.

    I started reading it on my journey into work and have just finished it in my lunchbreak – now I just have to wait til April for Dark Serpent, argh! 🙂

    Brilliant little story, I hope to hear more about One Three Seven at some point in the future.

    Keep up the good, no fantastic, work!
