Another Rainy Day

Hi folks,

Well, we’ve got another rainy day here, great for the garden. Not so bad for the writing either. 

So, while everything outside is busy growing, here’s another peek into the current WIP. A sequel to the Immortal Tigress. The revival of a vampire slain by fire.

Ella carefully arranged the charred corpse on the floor then knelt beside the bones. “Ceremony is not necessary, nor is the rearranging of the bones, but it will ease her return. Harald, have you ever done this?”
Not in all my long years, Mother.”
Assist me. Just follow my lead.”
He nodded and knelt across the body from her. Kylie gasped as Ella gashed her own wrist and let the blood drip on the charred lips of the corpse. “By the blood of the mother. Live again.”
Harald nodded then gashed his own wrist, holding it out so the dripping blood would reach her lips. “By the blood of the brother. Live again.”
The body stirred slightly and moaned softly. Ella grabbed the arm of her captive, slashing it open with a fang. The blood flowed freely onto Gudrun’s hungry lips. “By the blood of the killer. Live again. Rise up my daughter.”
Before their very eyes the corpse began to heal its burns and to clothe itself in new flesh. The captive was quivering in terror now, but could not move. The compulsion was too strong. Slowly the charred form struggled to its feet with Ella’s help. “Mother, I hunger.”

This one took your life, my child.” Ella thrust the hapless man into Gudrun’s grasp. “He will now return it to you. Drink. Drink long and deep. Heal.”

Aaaaand, that’s all you get for today. Have a great week and I’ll see you again on Sunday.


Rainy Day

Hi folks,
It’s a cold rainy day here. I won’t bother showing you a picture as I’m sure you can picture it in your mind easily enough. The bright side of it all is I’ve got lots of writing done today. Yay me. J
Anyway, yesterday was a different matter, clear and cold. Of course me and the boys took advantage of a chance for a walk in the sun.

Last week I got a flat tire on my car. Since it flattened in the driveway I thought nothing of it, just call my buddy in the garage down the street and get it fixed. That was the beginning of the downward spiral for the poor old car. (and my bank book) He tried to pump up the tire to drive the car to the garage where he could fix it easily. No go, the hole was too big.
He jacked up the car and took the tire to the shop. The hole was still too big and the sidewall was ruined. I ordered two new snow tires. He got them in and tried to mount one on the injured side. Couldn’t do it. That’s when he noticed the broken coil spring that had punched through the first tire.
He then tried to take off the spring to order a new one, but the entire strut assemble was rusted out. Car you see where this is going? Argh. Anyway, by tomorrow I will have two great new tires and a new strut. (And an empty checking acct.) Sigh. Ah well, it has kept me home and at the computer.
Now for the ROW80 check-in

The projected release date for the new novella had to be pushed back a week because of illness. (Not mine, thanks) However, I have high hopes for later this week which will still make it a January release.
On the new book front I have managed over 12K words on the new project along with some savage plotting. I am well pleased with that.
Next week’s target is another 10K words and a book release. Wish me luck.
Okay, so now it’s your turn. What have you all been up to? Drop me a line and let me know. I do love to hear from you.
Bright Blessings
