Excerpt- Weekend Warriors 7/28/13

A short excerpt from Kris— A Charles the Cat Story. For clarity, Kris lives at a Catholic orphanage:

The brisk evening air almost forced the boy back inside, but he was determined to be certain of what he had seen. Searching the pathway right and left, Kris found nothing but blowing snow. He had almost given up when he heard the soft mewing. Scrambling backwards, he scanned the pathway one more time. Standing in the dim light, white on white, was a tiny kitten, crying inconsolably. Grabbing the little creature and tucking it quickly under his jacket, Kris turned back toward the building, but almost collided with the parish priest in his hurry.
Flailing to keep his balance, Kris nearly knocked the man down and had pulled open the closure of the priest’s huge overcoat. “What have we here?”

Weekend Warriors 6/23/13

An excerpt from Seer, book 2- the Chronicles of Marithe: The great wizard must tell his friends that he is not a human. He has no idea how they will react—

“There has been massive destruction of the dragons.” His last sentence floated quietly out over the crowd. The humans gathered in the Tespin Inn did not cheer or show signs of fear, but rather waited for his next words.  The great wizard had paused to gauge their reactions.  When he saw nothing in the peoples’ demeanor to suggest that they were in favor of dragon annihilation, he continued— the populace hanging on every word.

“It has come time for me to choose sides in the Great War. I will always love Tespin and guard you, all of you.  Please understand that.  Nothing has changed my high regard for my home and my family here, but…” He paused lifting his head to search their eyes, “I am a dragon by birth.”

Seer should be available near the end of July 2013

Weekend Warriors 6/16/13

An excerpt from Seer-book 2 the Chronicles of Marithe. Lase, the demon male, examines his current situation. He lives beside his heart’s desire, but he can not have her:

The demon had become talented in methods of discouraging suitors. The man who took Mirandra from him would need to be special, worthy in his estimation of the word ‘prince.’ Lase intended to be very certain that she would be happy. Glahee law dictated that males must remain faithful to their wives, in theory if not practice. Lase would see to it that her future husband would treat her like a queen…and that he would be faithful until death. The thoughts of her in another man’s arms stirred anguish deep within his soul. He sighed as he prepared another cup of Baya and watched his beloved ready herself for the day. Lase refused to allow the evil within him to touch Mirandra’s life. He choked back his tears. Demons do not cry.

Sneak Peek/ Weekend Warriors 4/21/13 (fromSeer)

Xavier woke with a hangover and no memories of the previous night. He frowned against the brightness of the captain’s cabin. The three women stretched out naked— half covered by blankets on the bed— were still asleep. It seemed a good time to make his exit. Xavier had no idea of his innocence or guilt, but if there were consequences he wanted out. The cook-hand of the Dorianne wanted no part in trouble, and he had seen more than his share of ‘circumstances.’ Xavier slid soundlessly to the floor. His clothes lay in a heap by the foot of the bed. Stopping only long enough to don his pants, he slipped silently out the door.
