Vol. 3, Deviations: Destiny, is now live! Download it for free here and at Smashwords. The first two series volumes, Covenant and Appetite, are available in multiple formats at my website, Smashwords, and Manybooks. (Edit: Destiny is now available at Manybooks!)

As stated on my site, these books contain mature content. Destiny ramps that up a notch. Please download and share responsibly.

In other publications news, "Butterfly Woman" is forthcoming in the Winter 2010 issue of Goblin Fruit (guest-edited by Mike Allen); "Lepidoptera in Space" will appear in the Nov./Dec. prose poem issue of Star*Line (guest-edited by Bruce Boston); and "The Unexpected Answer," originally published in Of Poets And Poetry, will be reprinted in Harp-Strings Poetry Journal. The Popcorn Press anthology Vampyr Verse (now available for pre-order) contains my poem "Neighbors." In 2010, my story "Judgment at Naioth" will appear in the Dybbuk Press anthology She Nailed A Stake Through His Head: Tales of Biblical Terror.

Thanks to Windborn for this review of the Deviations series over on HubPages, in which he writes, "Rather than stuff judgments of right and wrong down the reader's throat, Malcohn asks questions, and leads the reader to find his own answers. Further, she develops the ideas of right and wrong from her characters' points of view, and the points of view of her various cultures. ... Get the whole series, and allot a large chunk of time for reading them, because once you pick them up you won't want to put them down."

When I finished drafting Destiny back in 2005, I originally thought Deviations would remain a trilogy. The first three series volumes can stand on their own as a combined work, with its own overarching story line. But the characters refused to leave me alone. The events at the end of Destiny created various consequences and uncertainties, and I wanted to see how those would play out -- not only for the adults in the saga, but for the next generation. Those children will get their turn as the six-volume series draws to a close.

Projected release of Vol. 4, Bloodlines, is mid-2010. Again, thank you all for joining me on this journey!
