This is Chapter 1 of the first book of my series “Mondomistico Chronicles”. This is from the book “The Dream Walker.” The series will be twenty books total – 10 books from the male lead and 10 book from the female lead. I have written the first two books of each series as a whole, but have a lot of revision left to do! Let me know what you think.

 

“Hurry!” Miyasha whispered, his voice rough and urgent. “They’re coming! Dad, I’ll stall them, while you get my wife to safety.”

“No!” the man said his voice was deep and commanding. “Miyasha you leave with Fidel. Atzura and I can handle this.”

“Atzura was wounded,” Miyasha replied harshly. When his father started to protest, Miyasha interrupted, “I won’t listen to you.” Miyasha’s face was hard and eyes defiant as he turned and burst through the door, leaving the man speechless.

He knew that Miyasha was dead. There was no way he would be able to win against the monster advancing on them.

It isn’t easy to find time to write
Words that come easy one minute allude me
Whenever I try and put pen to paper

personal thoughts:
I am trying to find time to write my series, but unfortunately I have to put it on hold again while I continue to finish nursing school. I hope that one day, once I finish getting my nursing degree and have a full time job, I can fully devote my free time to writing and eventually get published. Until then I will try and keep my blogs up to date!

The Dream Walker Chapter 1 (Book 1 – Chris Part I)

Chapter 1: The Vicious Cycle

“Hurry!” Tristan whispered, his voice rough and urgent. “They’re coming! Dad, I’ll stall them, you get my wife to safety.”

“No!” the man said his voice was deep and commanding. “Tristan you leave with Fidel. Atzura and I can handle this.”

“Atzura was wounded,” Tristan replied harshly. When his father started to protest, Tristan interrupted, “I won’t listen to you.” Tristan’s face was hard and eyes defiant as he turned and burst through the door, leaving the man speechless.

He knew that Tristan was dead. There was no way he would be able to win against the monster advancing on them.

The man ignored the feelings threateningly to build within him. The past was gone. There was no use dwelling on it. He turned and ran back into the living room. There was only one thing he had to do now. He looked around the room and spotted her in the corner—small, light, and supporting herself against the table. Obviously her four month pregnancy was starting to take a toll on her. The woman’s usually lively light brown hair hung around her face, dead looking. Her eyes once a brilliant green now dulled.

“You’re leaving. Now.”

“Where’s Tristan?” her voice was desperate, urgent, scared.

“Dead,” he said harshly and with no sympathy. “Tyler has betrayed us.”

Part of Prologue to Book 1 – Lily Part I

Girl in the Dark

The heavily pregnant woman staggered from her house, a sleeping 3-year-old tucked under one arm, a pen and a scrap of paper clenched in the other. After scanning for her car through the freezing rain, she stumbled towards it, her black hair whipping around her in the brutal wind. Behind her, a man snuck back into the shadows, studying her, watching as her struggled to place the child into the car seat and as she lurched into the driver’s seat.

Once situated in the car, the woman shot a look out the window, back at the house, a whirl of emotion in her violet eyes: remorse, relief, fear. It lasted only a second. Hastily, she opened her fist and scribbled fiercely on the scrap of paper, knowing this was her only chance. Knowing she had to get it right.

She stopped writing. This was it. There was no room for mistakes. Reading the words out loud, they flowed with a purpose, yet eloquently, articulately, as though some vital secret was being uttered. The woman finished reading and instantaneously the car filled with a vibrant crimson light, filling her with exulted pleasures she hadn’t known in ages. But it ended all too soon.

The pleasurable feelings dissipated, leaving only the exhaustion and the terror, but she forced such feelings aside. Turning on the car, she slammed on the gas pedal and the car lurched forward, speeding off into the foreboding night.

Escape was a necessity.

Death was a certainty.

Perhaps Those of You Working on a Novel might relate…

Hi everyone! I have decided to create a new blog that provides information about the long series of novels that I have worked on since middle school (don’t worry – the entire series has evolved significantly from when I first set out to write this series).  I do have several points to address and questions that I’ve been wrestling.

In advance, I apologize if this post sounds rambling and repetitive. I want to get the layout of this blog done and then get back to writing my novel!

1. Why a new blog?

Well, as I said I’ve been working on this series for a long time and there’s only been two people who have read the entire novel so far. I don’t plan to post the entire thing on this blog, but I will post questions and pieces of it to try and get feedback. On my main blog so far, I haven’t gotten as many comments as I would like, but I am thankful for the ones I do receive. The only way to get better as a writer is to receive feedback. So, I’m hoping this blog will fair better in the comments department. So, that’s your guys’ task. Mine will be to actually write – and to improve my writing skills.

My main blog can be found here: Being a Creative Writer.

2. Here are some questions for you writers out there (or hypothetical ones if I get no responses lol). Is writing a full-time thing for you? Is it a hobby? Do you want to get published?

Are any of you working on novels? How are they going? If you have a site you’d like me to checkout/want feedback I’ll do that.

3. Hmm, right now I can’t think of much else to say… I’m trying to figure out how I want to organize this new blog and also what kinds of posts I will do. I don’t think I want to post my entire novel online, but I do want to share pieces with everyone, and definitely get feedback.

Maybe I would like to self-publish someday… Any thoughts? Has anyone reading this ever thought about self-publishing versus the “traditional way”?

4. Random Note:

One of my short stories has been accepted, so take a look at my first self-publication for an online serial, “Don’t Look Back, You’re Not Going that Way” on Channillo!

Cover - Don%27t Look Back JPEG

Series Description:

If only the past didn’t exist. Kara has finally found her ex-boyfriend, Ethen, who was held hostage and tortured by a mysterious man. But, it is not a happy meeting. The moment she steps into the eerily white room, she knows what Ethen will call her: “Murderer.” However, she also knows there is nothing Ethen could say that would make her love him any less, and nothing she could say that could invoke his forgiveness. She believes that no amount of time together can change that.

Unfortunately, there is only one way to escape this desolate and isolated prison and they both know it. So, Ethen and Kara and trapped together in her car, forcing Kara to not only endure Ethen’s hostility and questions, but also to relive and confront their dark past together. Through this forced time together, she must accept that the only way to move forward is to let the past overwhelm you first. And, together Ethen and Kara explore the truths and lies and they must accept that while love can blind you to the truth, it can also lead to redemption.
