Fingers Flying Adeptly Over My Keyboard...


Ookay. The blank page is filled. Half an hour in and I'm up to 492 words. You can track my progress by clicking the image to the left.

Here's a little teaser for you:

The Used Muse
Prologue
In the storefront window lay the body of a crumpled unicorn, its throat a red grinning gash, ruby droplets cascaded down its pure white coat. A tiny pair of hooves stained red, poked out from the unicorn’s tussled mane and in the dark, the cat could make out a tiny piece of red wax on lying on its shiny, muscular flank. The black cat paused under the streetlight, green eyes intent upon the crime scene in the dirty window. His whiskers twitched as he crept closer, his mouth watering at the thick scent of blood emanating from the open door. He placed one dainty paw in a viscous puddle of blood. From the taste he could tell the victim had been dead only a few hours. There was no trace of anything bitter or burnt, so he doubted magic had been involved in the homicide. The tang of iron filings in the back of his throat warmed him barely as the cold October mist clung to his fur and he bristled his back...

National Novel Writing Month Partcitipant!

I'm back after a long recovery period. I'm not 100%, but getting there. Hope to have my final surgery after Thankgiving and before the new year comes and then put this all behind me. To celebrate my new lease on life I have signed up for National Novel Writing Month to write my long mused urban fantasy tale, The Used Muse. Follow me here or at the official site for novel excerpts. Wish me luck! I'm plunging in a day behind with a 50k completion goal by the end of the month. I'm a glutton for punishment.

Click the image to the left and read more about my novel.

Good to be back, demon hunters. Thanks for following me on Facebook and keeping me sane.

Having Surgery Tomorrow ...

Dear Demon Hunters,

Tomorrow morning I am at the hospital. I'll be away for up to a week, depending on how my recovery goes. I am battling some serious health issues at the moment and the doctors have deemed it necessary to remove my large colon in order to save my life. This has been an ongoing issue I've been treating for seven years, unsuccessfully. I spent most of June in the hospital with a colon perforation that was quite painful and now here I am ...

Wish me luck and please check back. I hope to be up and writing on a normal schedule as soon I can.

Sincerely,

Your Friendly Neighborhood Demon Huntress
