Laird of the Damned

So excited! Book 1 of The Elderns: Laird of the Damned, is live on Amazon KDP. Check out an excerpt from Chapter 12.

Before Fÿréa haunted me through my dreams, I didn’t fear the night. I sensed my new powers rising, reaching out. My thoughts betrayed me. Face in shadow, mind veiled, in silence he walks among us. Memories surfaced of fine features, high cheekbones, and eyes as cold as the ancient ice that covered the southern hemisphere when our world endured an eternal winter.

I sighed when his warm breath brushed against my cheek. “Find me, Icêa, bring me back.”

Memories of past lives returned. I glanced around the empty room. Devoid of life, I thought, other than my own. Even so, I sensed Fÿréa’s presence. I sighed, my heart captured, my soul his prisoner. Sensing victory, Fÿréa’s laughter echoed around the cottage. I sensed hatred: an intense feeling, almost tangible. Trembling and fearful, I raced down the hallway towards my mother’s room. Her powers were rising, anger intense. A flash of lightning danced across the night sky casting shadows around the darkened room.

“I won’t allow you to take my daughter, Fÿréa, Icêa is a child.”

I love creating stories. In many ways―since I returned to the UK (from Andalucia, Spain) in August 2015―it has taken over my life. Until recently, I ran a blog covering my journey through research, writing/editing/publishing my first novel but I discovered that one of my somewhat unusual short stories had been “plagiarised” by a popular American Author. Taking someone else’s work, if only one chapter, is immoral. To ensure she didn’t steal any more of my work, I closed the blog. Something I now regret but regrets are pointless. “The Elderns” (formerly “The Eldern Journals”) were also extensively revised. Hopefully, they will be published on Amazon KDP before the end of 2022. The first volume of my short story books, “So Bizarre”, will also be published. Or they will when I manage to sus out how to upload them to the Amazon website.
