Prologue to "The Prince's Assassin"

It has been a long time since I addressed my second book in the trilogy. With the recent interest taken by many, I thought that I would share the prologue for "The Prince's Assassin." I am currently working with it to hopefully have it in good shape to publish over the summer! There may be more excerpts to come from both this book, and my first book of a new series that I am calling "Seraphina."

Prologue: 

"The sun glides across the darkening sky, streaking the faultless blue canvas with vibrant oranges and reds, just before it sets over the ocean's horizon as it does every day. Although now there is no more Esperlyss to disappear into the sunset like she used to do. Esperlyss is no longer here to consult about my choices. She can't help me destroy the men who have ruined me. The kingdoms have suffered enough after the destructive ruling of the deceased King of Leonald.

It is my time to step forwards and protect the people. I know that I will be keeping every gifted human alive with every Seinyun that is killed. I have a small army of fully trained assassin that assist me on my missions, helping to ease the difficult task. Ever since Esperlyss sacrificed her life for mine though, I have felt that something is missing. My dragon made me swear an oath that I will search for her hatchling once I returned to the Summer Palace, and now that I have, I intend to do so.

The plans have been falling into place with every dat that I have waited. I have been carefully selecting the members that will accompany me on the journey, as well as the weapons we will carry, and the strategies we will use to search. I have waited two ears for the last item I need before we can embark on our journey. She has come to us in the most unlikely of circumstances; unaware of the vital role she will play in the act of saving my kingdom. She has travelled from afar, not knowing she would ever be found.

She is the answer to it all. The extra strength and power that I need to help find the hatchling. She will have skills so sharp yet sly that she will be able to spy right under their noses. She will be the one to find the key. She will grow to learn her true purpose here with us, and not with the life that she lived before. Because once the young dragon is found, I will finally e able to put an end to the Dark Sorcery, and put an end to the Seinyun.

This is only possible with the help of Krea.

Krea is the last piece I have been waiting for and she has finally come running to my arms, running straight towards her true purpose."

Things are Changing

With the school year coming to a wrap, time seems to retract from its lengthened state so much so that the days are clearly flying by. A lot has happened as of late, and a lot is still to come. Outside of writing, About a month ago now, I was hospitalized again for my ankle injury after getting cellulitis and a staph infect in my ankle joint from the first surgery I had back in January. It was all quite a debacle, but now I must say my ankle is feeling better than ever, and get more and more excited as my strength returns. Recently I also purchased my first car (well a truck), so I came home this last weekend to clean and repair a bit in preparation for my road trip to Montana for the summer! Last summer was a remarkable experience for me living near and working in Virginia City, and I keep counting down the days until I get to return this year. Not only did I get to experience a lot of memorable things while I was there, but I also got a lot of writing done including working on stori…

Jumping off the Deep End

Well, for those of you reading on here, this news may be coming out of the deep blue, but today is officially publishing day for the new edition of The King's Daughter! Published this evening, about ten minutes ago, (so it will take a little time to actually show up online... but), my book will be available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble in print, and will be available as an e-book within a few weeks when I finish up the formatting! I finally thought it about time to stop fussing over the small things (because I knew it'll never be "done" to me if I keep trying to fix minute details). I'm excited to share this newer version with my family and friends who've always shown such great love and support towards my writing over the years! I've come a long way, but know that I still have a long way to go, and The King's Daughter is just my first stop on that long journey! Publishing this will allow me the time now to give more of my time and attention to wor…

A Moment of Realization

I figured it’s been a month, so it’s about time I remove you from the dark. To be perfectly honest, I could’ve written sooner, but in the past month I’ve been settling in at uni, so writing hasn’t quite been my main focus. I know! I’ve wondered to myself too how I could have possibly gone a full month without touching a single work of writing, but it’s a lot easier when you have something else occupying your time. I admit that my biggest fear coming to school was what others told me- I wouldn’t find the time again to write my stories. I’ll be doggy-paddling neck deep in water, turning in circles as I constantly try to stay afloat. If I’m really in that deep, that no, I wouldn’t ever find time to write for fun again. However, if these first four weeks of school have told me anything, it’s quite the opposite- at least for the time being. While still in search of a job where I can make a decent pay for groceries and savings, I have found that I have a lot more free time than I ever thoug…
