Snippet: LotT, Chapter 5- Conversion

Rough cut: “Up on the table with you, Arius. The sooner we do this, the sooner you can settle those fears.” Elius chivvied Ari up on the metal table. Once he was laying down, Elius pulled a blanket up to his chin. Ari worked out a hand and took mine again. He held it tight… Read More Snippet: LotT, Chapter 5- Conversion

WIP Snippet: Evalyce Quaestors

A snippet from my current chapter ‘Mad Jack’   “I’ll enjoy breaking you, little lioness.”      I pressed away from him, panic filling my veins, pushing the drugged euphoria away, bit by sluggish bit. My breathing sped up, setting off a ringing in my ears. I struggled again. Succeeded in flailing my limbs a bit in… Read More WIP Snippet: Evalyce Quaestors

Book Reviews, Evalyce

Book Review: Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero

***This book was reviewed for Random House/Doubleday via Edelweiss Cantero’s Meddling Kids was such a fun book! It’s a cheeky parody drawing on reminiscences of childhood classics like Scooby-Doo and The Three Investigators, with helpings of Lovecraft, King, and others added to taste. I could see echoes of 80s action shows peeking through as well.… Read More Book Review: Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero

WIP Snippet: Evalyce Quaestors

Here’s a snippet from my current work in progress. The chapter has no title yet. ?     “Who’s there?” My voice was sharper than intended. More rustling, coming from behind a stack of wooden crates, and a towheaded boy no older than five tumbled into view.     “What’cha lookin’ for?”, he asked.     “You first, whelp.… Read More WIP Snippet: Evalyce Quaestors

Evalyce Short Story: Trial of Xibalba

All that surrounds me is my own deep blue scent of fear. Once this would have roused my hunger, the instinctive urge of the rahksa, the Crescent Reavers, to hunt, to kill. Now, though, the fear is all mine. The hunter has become the hunted. I am in a blackness unlike any other. The velvety… Read More Evalyce Short Story: Trial of Xibalba
