Work In Progress

To scream would be to feed his addiction. She refused to give in to her pain as the knife slashed her torso. Blood spilled. The metallic tang invaded her senses as she fought to remain conscious. Beneath her bulging belly, not yet full to term but ripened enough for minimal risk to the life inside, the tip of his knife penetrated her skin, slicing from left to right.

He worked with precision, tracing his mark three times. Each slash a little more gentle than the last, before placing the tip to her navel and ripping down her middle.

Biting down on her lip too hard she tasted blood. The desire to scream no longer her biggest fear as realization finally kicked in. This night would be her last, but the first for her child.

She refused to die at the hands of the ripper. Greed was his weakness. Sacrifice was her power.

Even in the dank darkness of the tunnel the full moon touched her, aiding her attempt to save her unborn child.

Tearing through her womb, he was close to what he sought.

Her time was running out.

Upon the goddess she called and, drawing upon the power of the divine, began her chant. From my mistakes don’t make her suffer. Daughter of the angels his demon hands can’t touch. I give myself to protect her and bind him in his crux. Save her, oh creature of the night, for in your heart you’re pure. I summon you to this task, a step toward your cure.

From his hand she snatched the knife and plunged it in to her heart. This time she did scream—there was power in her agony—her love for the child she would never know cut deeper than the knife could touch.

Crimson Towers will be released early 2019…stay tuned for details…

Black diamond_s hung from her ears like cursed purity. A reflection of what her life had become. (1)

The basic idea of Devil’s Poison came to me about five years ago, but, until now, the rest wouldn’t unfold no matter how much I tried to unravel Ravenna and Zaine’s story.

For years I worried the idea would bore me by the time I started writing…but, nope, super excited over here! I can’t wait to unleash Devil’s Poison into the big wide world of books.

Writing Prompt Wednesday

wow life before day one

The story doesn’t begin on page one!

As you walk past this window you catch a glimpse of … (what?).

Life didn’t begin because you happened to be passing. Life had already begun, and will continue after you’ve moved on.

When writing a story, open the window and invite your reader in. This is their page one, but to you, the author, page one thousand would be closer to the truth.

Deposit backstory as if taking vitamins, but don’t over do it because info dumping will slow the pace!

Happy writing!

Blurred Lines

How would you feel about turning your back on the enemy, or is this a typical case of sibling rivalry?

Happy writing!

Living on the Edge

Dressed to impress they don’t go unnoticed. Or do they want to blend with the crowd? Is it a statement they are wanting to make?

Together they walk the line between risky and risqué, balancing on the edge of freedom. Who is saving who? Or, are they as one in their escape?

Happy Writing.
