Scenes From The Wyrd!

I have not one, but two scenes from Wyrd Calling characters to share with you today! They’re not directly from the book, but they are from characters. They’ll add a little bit of something to the story and your understanding of the characters.

Poor Ryan…

Nik had been sceptical at first, but that was his reaction to most things; I knew he’d come around. It was an amazing opportunity; we were going to be working with the Wyrd Sisters, man! My sister was off on the other side of the world saving some selkie colony or something, while I was going to make areal difference. I would finally show everyone that I did have value and a place in the world. I was going to prove them all wrong and prove that I could do more than wander aimlessly. Wasn’t I? I mean, that’s a big job, they’re the Wyrd Sisters. They control the fates of every being, or at least I thought they did. That’s a lot of pressure, I mean, what if I screw it up? Will I accidentally wipe out a country or something? Fuck. Maybe this wasn’t such a good plan after all…

What if poor Ryan really does wipe out a country? Is that possible…? 

There’s so much more to Lee than first meets the eye.

I didn’t know why they had insisted that I approach her this way. There were far more… fun methods, but I wasn’t in a position to argue, much to my chagrin. My heart skipped a beat every time the image of her face came to mind. I wanted nothing more than to hold her close, to run my fingers over her pale skin. I glanced over to the clock, it seemed to be moving agonisingly slowly. I had some ten minutes before I would leave to meet the draconics. They were thick-skulled idiots, but they would allow me close to her. I wondered if she would remember me, if she’d be able to tell who I was through the disguise. My heart skipped a beat again when I thought back over the times I had hidden my form and watched her from afar. She carried such sadness during those days.  I hoped it had lifted. I had wanted to brush my finger over her lips and feel her smile beneath my fingertips, to whisk her away to our sanctuary. To lose ourselves in each other again, but I couldn’t. As they kept reminding me, she wasn’t mine to have. If I was very lucky, I might get to snatch some precious time with her, but she would never be mine. Not truly.
Why can’t Lee ever call her his own? Why must he settle for glances and brief moments?

Updates!

Wyrd Calling is going absolutely fabulously. We’re onto the copy-editing and formatting stages already! I’ve also heard back from my cover artist which means that I have the hopeful date of November 7th as the release date, how exciting. <Happy writer dance>

I’m taking a short break from Wyrd Calling to let it sit so that when I go back over it I’ll be more likely to spot any little problems, that same thinking applies to my wonderful editor. I’m not sitting on my laurels though, nope, I’m still working hard. I have the rough plot in my head for Feathered Touch which is the sequel to Wyrd Calling. I’m really happy with the ideas and arcs I can ‘see’ so far. I also have the opening scene written. 😀

I’m currently making notes on various key scenes and points in Feathered Touch and should start writing it properly in the next couple of days. It has a very different tone and outlook to Wyrd Calling but I don’t view that as a bad thing.

 

All in all, great news, everything is going swimmingly!

 

First Post!

What on Earth is all about I hear you crying!

This is the result of me falling head over heels for my Urban Fantasy novel Wyrd Calling which is the first in the series Wyrd Bound. You see, I got a little bit too hooked on the excitement and sharing all the fabulous updates and bits with the readers of my personal blog, so I had to give it its own space. Yep, this right here is my corner of the internet, where I get to squee over my progress, cry over the misbehaving characters, and dance around in glee at the milestones.

What is Wyrd Bound all about? 

I’m glad you asked! Wyrd Bound is an Urban Fantasy series of as-yet-undetermined length which I’m currently working on. The first book in the series is Wyrd Calling, which you can find out a bit more about here. In short, it follows Thalia, the Wyrd Bound shifter as she tries to free herself of the Wyrd Sisters (they’re the Norse equivalent of the Fates). Unfortunately for her, they have no intentions of letting her go, so she gets sent off to fulfil tasks for the Sisters. Wyrd Calling sees her having to stop a serial killer who’s targeting sirens. 

Of course there’s much more to it than that. Thalia must come to terms with her old bonds and try to find a way to get on with her new pack. All in all, Wyrd Bound is a dark, gritty Urban Fantasy.

When and where can I purchase this amazing book?

If all goes to plan, then Wyrd Calling will be published in early November 2014.

Thanks for stopping by, I’m sure you’ll soon be as excited about this fantastic book as I am. Until then, enjoy the taster of the wonderful, weird world of the Wyrd here.
