Of Course There’s a Fairy Prank (a Hunter and Prey excerpt)

In celebration of the first draft reaching 50,000 words—I won NaNoWriMo! Although I haven’t finished writing the book yet… xD—here’s an excerpt (everything is subject to change, as this is a first draft): Laehem hadn’t finished setting up by the time Adren arrived. She supposed that made sense; she had come there earlier than she’d meant to. Still, an extra person meant extra hands, and she put hers to work getting out the dishes and putting the food on the table while

The Peace of the Gods (a Hunter and Prey excerpt)

In celebration of the first draft reaching 40,000 words—so close to 50k, omg—here’s an excerpt, a story Nadin reads in a fairy library (everything is subject to change, as this is a first draft): Under the maelstrom sky, a pond. Beneath that pond, a wellspring. Around that pond, the forest.

The Weeping of Adren (a Hunter and Prey excerpt)

In celebration of the first draft reaching 30,000 words, here’s an excerpt (Tareh’s name subject to change in subsequent drafts. As is everything else, as it is a first draft): Another nod. It was real. It was real. It was real. A tightness in Adren’s abdomen burned up her throat, pressed against her eyes. She took a deep breath. And another. Tareh put a hand on Adren’s back, and Adren shuddered at how that touch met what was opening inside her.

That Time Adren Cared About Being Polite (a Hunter and Prey excerpt)

In celebration of the first draft of Hunter and Prey now being at 20,000 words, here’s an excerpt from Adren trying to teach Nadin the dialect the magical creatures speak: …he wasn’t exactly a quick student. “Okay, I think I get it,” Nadin said. “Shall means will and an means if. Except when an means an and not if.” “Correct.” Then again, maybe the information was starting to soak in. “But if you can say methinks, can’t you say, I

Nadin and His Demons (a Hunter and Prey excerpt)

In celebration of hitting 10,000 words in the first draft, here’s an excerpt of what I’ve written so far in Hunter and Prey (this may end up reading differently in the final book, but that’s part of the fun, don’t’cha know): Nadin had checked the unicorn’s magic after Adren had told him what Loram had seen while they were in Evinad. Something broken, she had said. Would he be able to see what a full fairy saw? His ability to
