Well, I did it!

I met the ‘like’ goals on my FB page! The cover art and full page have been shared.

However, I don’t want to leave all of you out in the cold! Here’s the cover!

And here’s the promised page from the book!

Blackness enveloped Arwenna.  Not a gentle one, swathing her like a comfortable blanket.  Rather, it chilled her to her very core.  This was wrong.  It wasn’t going to be a peaceful sleep.  Her mouth opened to scream, but no sound emerged. 

            The guttering light of torches flirted with the edges of the black void, slowly eating away at it.  She knew she was suspended in the air.  All the dreams had that in common.  It was what she would see as the darkness dissipated that changed.

            Before, it had been a sitting room or bedroom.  She hadn’t been able to recognize any of the figures in the room, or hear what they said.  But the feeling of evil had remained with her for days afterwards.  What was below her now was no bedchamber, though.  It was something far more frightening.

            Torches filled the area with light and shadows; she tasted the thick smoke rising from them.  A man, someone she did not know, lay on a stone altar.  A robed figure moved around towards an elderly priest.  A shadow behind it grabbed at the old man’s hair, pulling his head back.  She could see the face.  A tear rolled silently down her cheek as she watched the knife slice slowly through Father Cedric’s neck.  Memories of her brief childhood with her own kind darted as fragments through her mind.  His face was there almost as much as her mother’s.

            The metallic smell of blood assaulted her as two more figures were slaughtered.  Arwenna felt the power within her build to the point where it felt as if she would explode.  The people below were summoning black magic.  Whatever was going on, she needed to stop it.  Tapping into the reservoir of power within her, she started to hurl bolts of lightning towards the figure holding the chalice.  Nothing made it through.  Panic rose within her as the blood filled cup was held to the lips of the person on the slab.  She could not allow the spell to be completed!  The lightning bolts changed to balls of fire and ice. 

 

Excited yet?

Right now, we’re looking at an August 2013 release! I’ll let you know an exact date once it’s set!
