Sometimes I feel like updating things. Let's see. Today is October 5, 2020:

Hello beloved readers!

I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Stephanie Van Orman. I made this account when I was still writing under the name Sapphirefly. I have written on this website for many years, but a few years ago, I became an independent novelist and started publishing books in print in the big wide world. Before I release a new book, I do a promotion called an ARC (advanced review copy) where I supply free ebooks to readers who are willing to leave reviews in places like Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Goodreads. I released a book last May, called 'His 16th Face'. In between book releases, I like to build a list of readers who would be interested in receiving an advanced copy and leaving a review. Would you like me to add your name to the list? PM me and we'll get you on the list.

Being an independent novelist is pretty much the dumbest way to die, so if you're interested in me and my writing, please show your support by following me on Facebook, or signing up for my newsletter on my website, or follow me on Youtube (to see trailers for upcoming books). Thank you!






I should have more books coming out for sale in the coming months and years, so please keep up with me and sign up with one of those services to keep up with everything I'm writing. Thanks!


His Sixteenth Face

This is a whole book now and it's on sale at Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, wherever you buy books. https:///gp/product/B08669LTXV/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0

I'm posting this chapter one chapter a week until completion. Hope y'all enjoy it.

Whenever You Want

All done. Thanks to everyone who reviews.

Mark of a Dragon information:

This is a story that used to be on under the title 'Dragon's Moon'. It was original fiction when I wrote it the first time. I tried to post it here then, but I only got 2 reviews for the first two chapters. I was like, 'screw this!' So I took it down, changed all the character names to suit the Escaflowne fandom and got closer to 20 reviews for the first chapter. Since then I wrote two sequels. I may post them here in time.

Ghost Mist information:

I have a few unposted chapters of this fic. I think it's a pretty awesome thing, but I don't think I'm good at writing pure fantasy. It's not me. I do much better with a little contemporary buzz.

Poetry information:

I'm not much of a poet - clearly - if you look at my poetry stats. But my poem 'Black Mask' got picked up for a suspense newsletter on once. That was pretty cool. That was probably the closest I ever got to getting published. Ah ... unspoken dreams. Anywhoo - if you take the time to read it - take the time to review it. There are a few strange ones down there.

Code Black by Kaytala reviews
In the midst of a nuclear war that threatens to wipe out the planet, a young girl and a young soldier try to find answers to save themselves. 1st person POV. Warning, kind of depressing.

Kiss of Tragedy reviews
When he kissed her, she saw a vision... something distant from her reality. It was real, just beyond her grasp. If only she could piece together what it all meant before tragedy struck. If only she could drag her gaze from the fangs his lips kept secret to his eyes, which might tell her everything. Bone-chilling. Wildly romantic.
