So, it's been nagging me for a while now; the long list of chapters we now have for the Guild, not to mention the stuff that's unpublished yet, so I thought I'd try posting a list of the current chapters up in one easy-to-find place! So here's the chapter list and I have posted it … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter Guide
Fantasy Writers Week!
It's been a while, I'm well aware but guess what! This past week I took part for the first time in Fantasy Writers Week. I've never heard of it before, but it was a four days of webinars and workshops with authors and editors and a lovely group of writers from all over the world … Continue reading Fantasy Writers Week!
Hello! I know it's been over a year since my last update. Clearly I am terrible at maintaining connection with you, but I endeavor to try harder. So! Here it is! Book 1 is in Beta editing! We've selected a few trusted friends to be the first eyes to read the semi final version of … Continue reading New Updates!
I know, it's been like, forever, but hey! I'm going crazy with the writing though you might not see it. We're working on a hard copy of draft three of book 1, so we need a little time away from the original concept. Don't worry, all is well with quarantine and all. Staying home and … Continue reading Update!
The Guild – Chapter 188 – Heath
Her eyes close as she speaks softly against my shoulder. “I can,” She huffs. “Someone who does evil things willingly, for one.” I think about what to say to that before I speak. To me, it’s terrifying to be controlled against my will and see it, but I guess to be at the mercy of … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 188 – Heath
The Guild – Chapter 187 – Selene
I find myself standing next to Caroline's bed, across from Kaede and Gwen. Nick and Heath stand at the foot of the bed. Caroline's spirit is fading. I don't even need to touch her to see that. The shadow of death hovers around her, inching closer. She'll be dead by morning. Kaede's emotions are all … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 187 – Selene
The Guild – Chapter 186 – Andrei
When I wake up Kat’s still sleeping. I sit up, feeling much better from the tea’s effects having kicked in. I slide off the bed slowly, careful to not disturb Kat and slip out of the room. I head to Caroline’s room, knocking softly on the door. Nik answers and I give him a weak … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 186 – Andrei
The Guild – Chapter 185 – Caroline
I feel so very cold. Why is it so cold? My thoughts drift in and out of focus. I briefly think about wearing a sweater, then asking Kaede to turn on the heater. Maybe I should run a bath. They tumble in my head like leaves tossed on the waves of the sea. As soon … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 185 – Caroline
The Guild – Chapter 184 – Selene
The cliffs on the east side of the island prove to be rather deserted, at least as far as the living are concerned. It's still chilly, but the air grows warmer with each passing day. Soon the island will be buzzing with critters and flowers. At least for now, the cliffs remain a welcome respite. … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 184 – Selene
Fight or Flight – Andrei
I’ve been called foolish, careless… Reckless even. I don’t listen to conventional instructions. I mean, I live outside of the natural flow of time, don’t I? Since the age of seven, I’ve been hoping timelines like a kid would hopscotch. Of course, that takes years of practice to even control, but I got the hang … Continue reading Fight or Flight – Andrei
The Guild – Chapter 183 – Heath
I almost can't believe what's happening. It's all so sudden. Caroline lies pale and motionless in my arms as I carry her up to her room, just as Selene asked me to. As I leave the greenhouse I hear Kaede jog up behind me. I can only imagine what's going through his mind at all … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 183 – Heath
The Guild – Chapter 182 – Andrei
My body trembles as I kneel next to the bed, waiting. Everyone's hints now swirl through my head, Caroline, mom... Kat’s even. I feel the pressure, but beyond that, I feel I've been putting it off. There is no one else I want to be with. But for all the times she's said the same … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 182 – Andrei
The Guild – Chapter 181 – Kaitlyn
I storm across the gardens, flowers on either side of the path dry out and wilt as I pass. What the hell is he thinking? How many times is he going to break his own fucking rules? Isn’t it bad enough that he altered so much in France, now he has to try and completely … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 181 – Kaitlyn
The Guild – Chapter 180 – Andrei
I wake up to a pounding headache. With a groan, I roll over, nearly on top of Kat. I should have listened to her last night and walked. I don’t know why I didn’t listen. I guess it was just too much fun bugging her like that. I now feel like I could sleep the … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 180 – Andrei
I've completed the challenge! It seems to get easier every time I do it. I didn't realise how much I wrote in a month. I love the challenge of Nanowrimo, whether it's the camp session or the actual event in November, writing a set number of words is a great way to get my thoughts … Continue reading Nanowrimo times!
The Guild – Chapter 179 – Caroline
It’s early April, and yet I still feel cold. I shiver in the hall of water, coughing as I work through a sequence with Naum. My water falters and he calls me to stop. “Gillian, what seems to be the problem today? You’re not focused,” He asks. “I know, I’m sorry. I’ve just got this … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 179 – Caroline
The Guild – Chapter 178 – Kaitlyn
I lay awake for a long time after Andrei passes out, listening to him breathe. I keep expecting it to suddenly stop, and every time he shifts in his sleep I flinch in surprise. I still can’t believe what I saw on the island, how he seemed to switch between different elements and he apparently … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 178 – Kaitlyn
The Guild – Chapter 177 – Andrei
I watch the crowd as they cheer loudly after Kat’s more than superior display. She really does know how to impress a crowd, no matter how shy she feels about being the centre of attention. I couldn’t help but be impressed as she expertly wove the bands of fire without harming a single person. I … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 177 – Andrei
The Guild – Chapter 176 – Kaitlyn
Crystal clear waters stretch out before me, as far as the eye can see. The waves kiss the sand, the sound echoing off the forest behind me. The strip of beach between the trees and the water is almost white, glittering in the midday sun. The day is hot but a gentle breeze comes off … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 176 – Kaitlyn
The Guild – Chapter 175 – Andrei
I poke Kat’s arm as I lay beside her on our bed in the Hasley’s mansion. It’s time we got up and prepared for our trip to Polynesia. As I watch her, I’m surprised to see her actually sleeping, considering her element and the fact that it's just after midday; Kat has a tendency to … Continue reading The Guild – Chapter 175 – Andrei
Bewitching Mistress Kristelli – Kerry
"What reason do you have to be in my chambers… at this hour, Sorcerer Giovaro?" A tall woman with long, dark hair asks from the doorway. Her silky green dress cascades to the floor where she stands, the silver belt about her waist glinting in the candle light. "Ah, Mistress Kristelli. I did not expect … Continue reading Bewitching Mistress Kristelli – Kerry
