It’s that time for Weekend Writing Warriors, the weekly blog post where indie authors share 8-10 sentences of their newest or upcoming releases, I’m continuing with Amber Sky, the first of two Dark Sky prequel novellas which releases on Tuesday! Newsletter subscribers, you’re getting it free (sign up for the newsletter under the social media icons on the right sidebar) so check your emails. Last week, I introduced you to Nash’s predicament in the fighting pits called the Crater. This week, I’m skipping ahead to the already progressing fight, and to the point where Nash finally loses control…
I clutched the arm and tried to yank it off, but the hold was good. Wasn’t long before my lungs started to burn. Punches started smashing into my battered ribs, each one harder than the last. Weakening me. Keeping me from fighting back.
But my sight was red. I lost control when I got Dylan on the ground. It was out of my reach now.
And I didn’t want it back.
Press-ganged into servitude by a ruthless band of marauders who survived the devastating Storm, Nash has grown tired of his career– the young, undefeated champion of the Stray Dog fighting pits. All he longs for is a place to live where his family is not his enemy.
When his captain gives him an assignment to embed him deeper into the crew, Nash attempts to refuse, until the life of his friend is threatened. Determined to save her, Nash embarks on the mission to subjugate and control a supplier. But the supplier has other clients, one of which could be the son of the most feared pirate captain in all of Westraven.
And if Nash plays his cards right, the key to his deeply desired freedom, if he can live with the consequences of his choice…
Set two years before the events of CRIMSON SKY, this prequel novella tells the story of how Nash and Sawyer crossed paths– and fists. While best enjoyed before reading CRIMSON SKY, this bonus story can be read at any time or enjoyed as a standalone.

October is going to be a fun and crazy month. Amber Sky will release, I’ll learn how to send stuff via newsletter, have a contest running, and be on Instagram doing a photo challenge for bookish monsters. I’m also organizing another promotion with my good friend Cassandra from The Bookish Crypt involving a book that will be a joy to experience, and will be preparing for the November release of the Cursed Trilogy Box Set.
There’s a blog tour open for anyone who wants to help with the book blitz, set up by the wonder-team at Xpresso Book Tours. While all of that is going on, I’m also going to be working on prepping for NaNoWriMo. But my big priority will be the revisions my mentor advised me to make for my next project. As many people know by now, last week I had my world rocked by Michael J. Sullivan, and despite my best efforts, couldn’t buckle down to get the work done. This week will not be the case. I’m ready to crack down and spend the next month on this bad boy then progress from there. An author’s job is all editing, isn’t it?
