Weekend Warriors – A Seer Excerpt

Fantasy-Dragon-dragons-27155090-2560-1600Mirandra is a talented fortuneteller.  In this scene she faces one of her greatest challenges –

 

“She will agree to wed,” the soothsayer spoke slowly. “The knight will be captured,” Mirandra added a small gristle for the man to chew as she wrested her hand from his strong hold.

Knowing it would not be wise to remain in concealment with this assassin, Mirandra slipped blithely backwards returning to the monk’s court.  She had earned ten gold pieces— no point in now losing her life.  The Seer quickly joined the throng of mourners gathered in the cathedral.  She followed the chanting procession toward the closed coffer, camouflaged by the excessive number of people in black clothing.  Along with the multitude of mourning citizens, the gypsy  princess offered her prayer for the lost king.  Approaching the remains, Mirandra felt the tingling of a vision. Dear heavens, not now! Her steps faltered as she saw King Sert, his arms outstretched to her.  The King of Kareth pleaded to her… a mere gypsy.  In that instant there was no doubt in her mind that he had been murdered, and she alone could identify his killer.

 

Seer, Book 2 The Chronicles of Marithe, will be available August 31st on Amazon!

Read It Or Eat IT!

Today is a rather unusual day for the Dragon…He has devoured much of his own work and finds his stomach very full.
The cook pot is boiling and Seer lies upside-down by the Dragon’s bloated tummy. “Enough!” He is heard to growl loudly. “The book is almost ready to share!”

The story is a dual theme of reality and fantasy.  Xavier, a young gamer with a curse, must find a way to survive as a knight in a world filled with demons and dragons. There is only one thing he truly seeks–the love of a princess.

A Steaming Cup of Baya!

Pros and Cons of cooking–

  1. It has plenty of Dragons.
  2. It has tasty gypsy dancers
  3. Baya, a Glahee Gypsy drink sounds a lot like coffee
  4. the story really works up a hungry appetite
  5. the insane mind of Patrick O’Scheen flows clearly in each line

the Dragon says: “ROAR!!!!  Don’t even think about eating it! You will enjoy this book!! It will be on sale soon at Amazon and all the other fine gypsy eateries places books are sold!!!”

Sometimes I Can’t Quite Stop the Smoke

are-dragons-real-bones-history1@0b88ee7b10ba437684384a88ed995e09Funny that sometimes I am angry deep down inside. It really isn’t like me – not my personality. I think maybe it is the side effect of illness or medication, but I am responsible for my emotions and my life. A little bit of the Dragon slips out and before I know it I am spitting fire and can’t quite stop the smoke or the collateral damage.

Lately I have become a very quiet person.   I do at times wonder if my silence fuels the anger, but the idea is irrelevant. I will not explode.

I can do what all Dragons must—  find my internal center, say my prayers, look for calm. Otherwise we are out burning down villages, ruining lives and making things unpleasant for everyone. Anger has no place ruling a dragon’s life.  Give it up.

Monday is Not My Favorite

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERATo be honest Monday should be like any other for a Dragon. I get up, snarf coffee, do a chore or two, take meds and plan my day. Only thing that makes it different is that other people are on their way to work…

Yeah, that’s right. On Monday there are fewer things to distract me. Most of my friends have or will have jobs and when they get home its the inevitable “I’m tired.” I wear out fast. My days start great, but I miss all of you.

Solutions:

  1. We cancel Mondays altogether. This makes almost everyone happy.
  2. You all become Dragons and we fly around on Mondays and everyday
  3. You all become fantasy writers and we can have coffee together
  4. I go back to my day job and we are all miserable together

Personally I vote for number 1… What do you think?
