Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop where authors post 8-10 sentences from their current, newly released, or upcoming work in progress. I’m still posting from the first chapter of Storm of the Gods, and the action is still going strong as Derek fights two scions at the same time…
The man opened his palms and called on his magic. Yellowish lightning crackled between his fingertips, and I was barely able to think Oh shit before he shoved out his hands and launched the blasts at me.
I Adapted my skin, pouring magic into it to make my flesh harder and more resistant to damage, and jumped back to avoid the worst of the strikes. The thin, jagged bolts struck the dirt half an inch from where I’d been standing and seared my vision.
“You didn’t tell me Derek Areios would be with them,” the man boomed with a deep voice.
“He wasn’t supposed to be,” the woman beside him protested, readying another sphere of fire into her hand, “so I didn’t see it.”
She didn’t give me another chance, her hand lashing out and throwing the flaming orb at my skull. I brought up my free hand and called fire out of my skin. My magic demolished hers in an explosion of embers and light, and then I stalked forward.
While I work on my YA Fantasy (had to add another three chapters to Part One, which I’m halfway through now, making this the longest book I’ve written to date), I have a bunch of books on sale! Dark Divinity and Storm Born are 50% off and the Cursed Trilogy Box Set is 0.99! Some of these deals are only going to last a couple more days, so now is the time to buy!
Hell has risen. Heaven is descending. Sacrifices are made…
It’s been two months since Constance Ramirez’s adopted sister Andromeda was used as the Key to opening the Gates of Heaven and Hell. They escaped with their lives, but made countless enemies as a result.
Now that demons are beginning to weave into ordinary lives, their only hope is to find a way to close the Gates of Heaven and Hell before the angels and demons begin a war. Something that becomes only harder as one of Constance’s deadliest enemies resurfaces.
But as they struggle to stay alive and find the Gates, they learn that a huge sacrifice will be required if they succeed, and this time, Constance isn’t sure the cost will outweigh the reward…

A single night can change your life… for the worst.
It’s been a century since the last Centennial Storm, the calamitous phenomenon that covered the world in disasters– tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, tsunamis, and dust storms– caused not by nature, but by alien creatures from another realm. The Stormkind.
Ava Reid tries not to think about that night, when she was caught in a hurricane and brought face to face with one of the Stormkind, the man with a dagger, and the agony she felt when he stabbed her with a crystal blade. Yet as she and the rest of Florida’s citizens begin to rebuild their lives, Ava can’t help but notice strange things happening around her. Things she seems to be causing. The gusts of wind and sudden floods attract the attentions of a mysterious stranger who leaves her clues, and the deadlier men following her.
It isn’t long before Ava is swept up into a wild conspiracy, led by a secret society that knows the truth about the Stormkind– and what their enemies have planned for the world she loves. If she wishes to protect her friends and her family, Ava must harness her strange new abilities and become part of the Stormkind society. Because if she loses control, there will be no force strong enough to stop her…
