From Short Story to Full Length Novel by Joceline Farrah


Infernal Ice was born of a short story that I initially wrote a few years ago for the 1NS series by Decadent Publishing. As I outlined the short, I kept on getting more and more ideas until I was completely outside of all the submission requirements. Once I outlined Raum Corvus’ character, there was no way this short would see the light of day. Raum Corvus’ devilish good looks, charm, wit, and courage swept me off my feet. I knew, from that moment, in order to do him justice as well as his love for Jessa- Belle (the heroine of Infernal Ice) only a novel would do. So I wrote the first draft, edited and revised it until I was teary when I wrote the very last sentence. (Yes, I know… I’m so mushy)

The next bump in the road was I no longer liked the original title (Styx and Stones). I played around with the story elements long enough until I got a title I felt was the right fit and of course, I was happy with.

The new cover is the work of Jennifer Munswami of J M Rising Horse Creation and it captures every aspect of the novel: my city, the love story and the characters.


There you have it….
