On this occasion, the mirror revealed to me another vision. Bedridden but still wearing a beautiful garment, the queen no longer resembled herself. Her impressive jewelry rested on her bedside table and not on her person. Premature wrinkles aged her, as did spots kissed by the sun. Her eyes sank within their sockets, heavy blackness marring the tender skin beneath them. It appeared as if centuries had passed since last I saw her. The touch of death was upon her, and time was clearly running out.

Strange. The mirror never revealed to me the future, but she still breathed, as far as I knew. I would soon come to learn that, most likely, I had witnessed her ritual after she enacted the spell.

New Release Tuesday – How to Slay a Werewolf and Prime Shadows

Another Tuesday, another new release. Actually, two there are two of them!

First up is How to Slay a Werewolf, a standalone in my Bedlam in Bethlehem UF series!

It should come as no surprise that Blake Damon hates vampires. He’s a vampire hunter after all. But there’s one other supernatural creature that he hates even more.

Blake will never be weak again.

Throwback Thursday Excerpt Edition – Of Slumber and Discord

A little snippet from Of Slumber and Discord:

OF-SLUMBER-AND-DISCORD-Kindle

There she lays upon her bed large enough to fit three persons her size, beneath a ruby red silk blanket. Her mouth is perfect, those terrible lips parted slightly. It is her tongue that is wicked.

As I stare at her, my will falter. She looks peaceful now as if she could not harm a single soul. To kill another is no easy task, and so she will remain asleep. No longer will she be a blight her kingdom, able to force others to submit to her every sung command.

With rushed urgency, I whisper the words of the sleeping curse, “Sleep and rest and know no more. You shall rest for all of yore. A single prick and deep sleep waits. Ne’er shall you wake ‘til evil abates.”

WIP Wednesday – The Cost of Greed

The Cost of Greed will be released on August 22nd!

Some have feared and hated witches. Fear, now that I can understand. Witches are powerful and not all are kind or generous with their abilities.

But, hate? That confuses me. Some witches are cruel, granted. Not everyone is good, humans and witches alike. Does that mean we desire to be despised, disdained, or disrespected?

No, most certainly not!

Throwback Thursday Excerpt Edition – Of Cinder and Madness

A little snippet from Of Cinder and Madness:

Shoving aside my doubt, cloaking myself in my fear, I remove the key from my pocket.

At once, her eyes flash with understanding, a flicker of an emotion, fear of her own or maybe acceptance. Then her birds swoop toward me as one massive swarm. I barely have time to close the door and lock it before they slam against it. Thud, thud, thud.

A minute passes and then another, and I lean against the heavy locked door with my eyes closed. It’s done. She’s barred. She’s too far up. Her birds never leave her side for long, and only one at a time at that. We’ll be fine now. We’ll be safe.

I hope.

I pray.

I fear.
