Previous scenes: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Lyra took a deep breath and squinted. She choked back a gasp and used one hand to grip her throat. It had to look good. They had to think she’d tried something and failed. That any barrier they’d placed on her prison were sound and impenetrable. She couldn’t … Continue reading Silence (scene 6)
For the previous scenes: 1, 2, 3 , 4. If the position was clear that Lyra wouldn’t be permitted to use her normal senses, she’d play along. A bit. Not too much. She’d let them think she was gone, undone, remorseful. Not a danger to a young mind — or an old one! After all, she’d twisted … Continue reading Silence (Scene 5)
The previous scenes: 1, 2, 3 Both hands flew to Lyra’s mouth as she realised the potential meaning. Was this forever? Was she stuck in a portion, a between-moment of the leafverse? A point where it was broken? Could they do that? Was it legal? No, of course it wasn’t. And apart from that, if … Continue reading Silence (Scene 4)
This is the reality, the real deal – the amount of time wasted asking people to tell you the word that’s in the head but just won’t pop out … until 0300 in the blessed AM – Gah!
Scene 2 here Scene 1 here Walking wasn’t easy in the constant drizzle, and with no shoes it was worse. The cold was something Lyra did feel, and it wasn’t what she wanted or needed. It drained her, took energy she needed to search, to maintain the map in her head. The third time she … Continue reading Silence (Scene 3)
Join the party! Share, swim dangerous waters, dive right in – It’s Indie Book Month!
On Twitter, there is a movement called #IndieApril, so I thought it was a good idea to import to WordPress. Independent writers are the growing force in publishing, so please take this opportunity to publicize and promote your work!
I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help. All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This encompasses fiction, poetry, plays, and non-fiction. If I have neglected to mention a genre, please consider it to be included.
To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity…

An impressive review of a sci-fi story by an Aussie author (and book one is permafree on Amazon) … check it out for yourself, be drawn into the world Miira
Forgive me if I reproduce this review in its entirety, but as a pantster, it’s validation of a sort I never expected to get:
Oooh, I loved this series, and now that it’s over, I’m suffering from a book hangover.
Nabatea is the final book in the Innerscape series. Book 1 primarily introduces the main character Miira Tahn and guides the reader through her entrance into the virtual world of Innerscape. During Book 2, sabotage, scheming, and political intrigue results in multiple victims including two people close to Miira.

The plot takes off quickly when Miira is confronted with disturbing information about the murders, and her prying questions raise alarms among those who want to hide the truth. A plot to silence her brings in two dedicated investigators who start gathering clues and…

Scene 1 here The old shack retained some warmth if she huddled in close to the corner. It was timber, and even though old, it wasn’t yet rotted. Timber meant there must be trees somewhere, and people to cut them, shape them, build places like this cottage. What could she do to distract her mind, … Continue reading Silence (Scene 2)
