I’m going to preface this by saying that I’m still working on the kinks for the new website. WordPress is a different beast, so I apologize for any weirdness in structure. Long story short: Editing won’t kill me. Promotion, websites, and formatting will. Anyway, it’s the first 8Sunday on the new website, and what better way than to celebrate with Weekend Writing Warriors and a brand new snippet from the first chapter of Midnight Sky!
They were going to get us killed.
I leaped to the side as Sawyer and the Rattail he was fighting slammed into the tavern wall. Sawyer grunted but kept the larger man at bay. He jabbed his knee into the man’s stomach, getting the advantage and then slugging the grimy-skinned marauder in the jaw. He whirled on me, his tawny eyes filled with wildness and fire.
“What are you doing in here?” my captain growled.
I took a breath to argue, then turned my head when the Rattail surged forward and tried to hit Sawyer again. I made my point by lunging, striking the man in the face with my fist just as Riley had taught me. I didn’t have the muscles the Sky Guard’s son did, but my hit disoriented the Rattail enough for Sawyer to grab him by the shirt and pound his head into the wall.
There are secrets, there are betrayals, and there are sacrifices…
The Behemoth has been destroyed, and the bloodthirsty Hellions seem to have left Westraven. But Claire Abernathy’s mind is not at ease. A terrible disease plagues her sister, appearing to have been brought on the Vesper, the leader of the Hellions beyond the tear between worlds– the Breach.
To save Abby and stop the Hellions for good, Claire must find the machine her parents built before the attacks, and fix it before the monsters return. To do so, she needs the help of her crew, and must ignore the secrets and rivalries between her captain and the man she saved.
Because the Hellions are not the only dangers following Claire. Twisted humans and old enemies surface to stop her and destroy all she loves. While she is determined to endure the trials, a single betrayal could shatter the hope of a better world, and force Claire to make a choice that will cost her dearly…

Most of my writing days have been revolving around setting up this new website and trying to make it look professional and nice. Any thoughts?
I’m also celebrating by offering a giveaway for digital copies of all three Cursed books!
I’m rushing since I know I have a lot more work to do and I’m a little burnt out from lack of sleep from Canada Day (woo hoo!), but hopefully I can get these damn kinks worked out and figure out how to operate my website. I would love to hear feedback, especially if you use WordPress (somebody help me!!)
Yes, I have had some sugar today. So sue me. I’ve earned it!
