Thank you, Facebook memories for this gem.
A deleted scene from Etlan – Book 1: Storm Warning.
A stuffed animal hit the back of her head. “What the-?” She turned and stared incredulously at Kerry. “You’re supposed to be helping me figure this crap out, not using me for target practice! What the hell kind of friend are you?” She ducked as a purple rabbit flew by.
“The kind that isn’t gonna sit here and listen to you whine.” Kerry held up a green teddy bear. “And has a fully stocked arsenal of plush projectiles.” She grinned. “So…go grab a notebook and start writing, or does Good Luck Bear need to get up close and personal with your face?”
Various Gods and Goddesses have walked the Earth since the beginning of time, helping to shape the future of mankind under the direction of the First God. Then the First is called away to settle a problem on the other side of the universe. When They return in their latest incarnation – a woman going by the name of Tamara – she finds that things on Earth have changed – and not for the better.
Now Trust is dying, Love is growing weaker every day, and it’s up to Tamara to find out why before it’s too late.
On top of that, a couple new Gods have popped up. While this isn’t usually a problem, these two threaten Tamara’s authority with their growing strength, and one of them doesn’t share Tamara’s “live and let live” philosophy.
The other…well, let’s just say, that one presents a different problem.

Well, let’s see here. In the past couple days, I’ve:
- Set up a new writing nook for myself (I had no writing place set aside where I live, and being on my computer provides way too many distractions).
- Started a new story (wtf, why am I writing about zombies?!).
- Got a crap load of work done on chapter 3 of When Love Dies.
I think it might actually be time to take a little break. Probably won’t happen. I’m a little too excited about having a writing space set up, but it’s a thought.
Sorry guys! Got caught up working on chapter 3 and lost track of time. Here is part 2!
“I’ve gone over every paper the hospital sent home with me, wikipedia, the Mayo Clinic website and every other site I could find. None of them know for sure what causes leukemia,” Patience greeted me. “I even went to the hospital and talked with the doctors there, just to double check. We have nothing, My Lord.”

The update is mainly that the individual books are finally getting names – which is frankly ridiculous, since the sequel/spin-off book series already has names for all the books involved. I even have names for potential ‘When Love Dies’ sequels. My brain is weird, that’s all I can think.
In the meantime, here is the prologue for Etlan – Book 1: Storm Warning.

Okay, so, I had planned on updating ‘When Love Dies’ this weekend, but I discovered a few features of wordpress that I hadn’t noticed before, so now I have some organizing and rearranging to do.
In the meantime, please enjoy the short story I wrote for my Creative Writing course and be sure to let me know what you think.
“The Witch’s Café”
Based on this writing prompt:
“I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society.”
Feedback is always welcome.
Okay, so one of my beta readers, Erwin, is obsessed with Vikings. He’s constantly suggesting I add more vikings to whatever I’m writing, regardless of genre/format/etc.. Don’t ask me, I don’t get it. I like the mythology, runes, and the way Chris Hemsworth looks as Thor, but that’s where my interest ends.
Anyway. So while writing Chapter 2 of When Love Dies, I came to a block in the flow, and Erwin once again started suggesting that I add vikings. This is what came from that. Enjoy.

Sorry for the delay everyone. Here is part 1 of Chapter 2.
His nostrils flared. “It means you have measured me by your crooked stick and have found me wanting. Tell me, Mother, do you know what this—” He showed me his middle finger. “means?”

I know it’s getting late in the day, but I promise, Chapter 2 of When Love Dies is on its way! Just smoothing out some bumps. Also, there will be a (very small) bonus piece tomorrow. A blooper, as it were 😉
Also, in the coming weeks, updates should be more regular. The main reason it’s taking so long for this part is because I had to rewrite two entire strands for the math class I’m in, plus an assignment for the creative writing class, and an emergency eye doctor visit. Fun times. So much fun.
“Not that I’m aware of.” She grimaced. “Youth won’t talk to me, Curiosity just asks me questions, Excitement won’t sit still long enough to have a conversation with, and Dreams can only communicate through metaphors.”
