Thanks for all the emailed well wishes, as I continue to combat this bout of asthenia :). I’m trying to lower my stress levels and rest as much as I can, but couldn’t for a moment leave out this Wednesday post. One of the things that will be featured on my website are chapters from a couple WIPs (works in progress). Here’s a very small snippet of a YA dark fantasy favourite of mine, ‘Elfin Blood’.
~ “Demon! That’s what it is, a devil. Nothing more; nothing less.” I was seventeen years old and it was the first time I had heard these words uttered from my father’s mouth. He said them with such conviction, that I felt sure that the woman they held tied to the post in the prison courtyard must be from some place not of our world. It made me curious. I wanted to know why everyone in the palace seemed repulsed and so afraid of this creature. I had not even been allowed to get a glimpse of her, my father forbidding it and leaving no room for argument. Though I knew it would anger him greatly, I had to see for myself; I wasn’t very good at following orders. ~
You’ll be able to read more of this first chapter with the website’s reveal and, remember you can purchase my YA paranormal/fantasy Secrets of the Tenari ‘here’ on Amazon.
