New Release – The Wolves of Glastonbury by Terrie Leigh Relf & Edward Cox


I’m so excited to announce that Edward Cox’s and my novella, The Wolves of Glastonburyis now available from Alban Lake Publishing. This was a long time in coming, and you can read all about it at Ed’s blog. Collaborating with Ed was awesome, and I’m so thrilled about all his success with The Relic Guild!

If you’ve never collaborated with another author, you may want to embark on that journey at some point in your writing career. When you find just the right person, it can open your mind to new ideas, styles of writing – and more. Furthermore, it is a wonderful discovery process, and you’re creating – or entering – another universe with them. It’s nice to have company when braving a forest of wolves. . .

The sequel, tentatively titled, The Fiction Writer’s Workshop  – and Beyond, is in process, and I expect it to have an early 2017 release.
