“Kate? Are you okay?” Amelia Edison put a hand on Kate’s shoulder. “You’re going weird again.”

“I’m fine!” Kate rounded on Amelia who paled and stepped back from whatever she saw in her friend’s face. Ophelia took the opportunity to head quickly towards the school door as the bell rang. Behind her she heard Kate swear loudly before yelling, “Oi! Get back here! I haven’t finished talking to you yet!” Read the rest of this entry »

“What do…” Ophelia trailed off as something plucked at the edge of her consciousness and she realised Sera was right. Kate was different in some way she couldn’t put her finger on. She pushed it aside and looked for a way to avoid a confrontation.

“Act casual,” she said as she spotted Mr Dooley and began walking towards him She wanted to get into his hearing range before Kate reached them.

“Good thinking,” Kira said. “She won’t dare try anything around a teacher… will she?” Read the rest of this entry »

“Did you sleep well?” Aunt Sophie asked when they came to breakfast. Ophelia and Sera exchanged a quick glance before Sera shrugged.

“Okay, I guess. Dad was snoring again. How can you sleep through that racket?”

“I’m used to it – he’s always snored.” She looked like she might say more but the landline rang. “I bet that’s Cass.” Read the rest of this entry »

It was cold and Ophelia could see nothing but white mist in all directions. She looked down and saw she was glowing like when she fought. She racked her brains trying to figure out how she got there but the last thing she remembered was going to sleep before getting back from Silver’s.#

“What the hell?” she said. “Where am I?” Read the rest of this entry »

Darlryan watched the Exile’s fortress cautiously from where he was concealed among a stand of trees nearby. He had tracked a surge of energy that could only be the key and arrived just in time to see Sera and Ophelia go in. He was considering what to do when he was interrupted.

“Get the hell out of my territory!” Read the rest of this entry »

Sunday Blog – Feedback Request

June 12th, 2016  |  Published in News, Shattered  |  3 Comments

Heyup readers,

Rather than a report on where I’m at or an attempt to wring money out of you I want to get some feedback from you.

Firstly are you reading Caredale? If so are you enjoying it? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Secondly I’d like your feelings on the Shattered Landing Page. Not many people are clicking through to the Gumroad page and I’m trying to ascertain if it’s a problem with the page or the story is just not what people want to read (because the first can be sorted but the second is a real problem and I may have to find something else to offer).

So questions:

  1. Does the Shattered Landing Page appeal to you and make you want to click through? If not is this because it’s not the sort of Fantasy you read or does the page or blurb just not pique your interest?
  2. Is it obvious that you don’t have to pay to subscribe unless you want to. Should I move that part a bit higher up the page?
  3. Is it obvious where to click through?
  4. There is a sample chapter on my Facebook Page so people can have a look before they commit to subscribing? Have you read it there or would you prefer to see the sample chapter on the website?

I know I’m being a bit of a pain but I hope you will take a moment to help me figure out how to make people’s initial interaction with my work more appealing so they want to stick around.

Thanks,

Becka

“She’s doing very well, Marateka,” Halia said. “And useful as those potions are, Ophelia can’t take them all the time.”

“Of course she can,” Marateka said.

“You know better than that!” Halia snapped. “You can’t go more than a few days without natural rest. She’ll burn out if she uses them too often.” Read the rest of this entry »

“I can understand that,” Ophelia said. “From what Silver tells me, they are as much victims as perpetrators in this situation. That’s why I told her we had to look for a cure. But we still can’t let them run around hurting people or stealing their bodies. Would this Alsia really object to that?”

“To keeping people safe?” Tilaran said. “From what I know of her, no she wouldn’t. At least not in principal.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Okay,” Ophelia sipped her drink as she considered how to describe what had happened. Then she stopped and stared at the glass. “This tastes freshly squeezed!”

“It is,” Tilaran said. Read the rest of this entry »

“You think they want a war?” Ophelia said. “Why?”

“Well if they don’t want a war, they are going about avoiding one in completely the wrong way. Attacking people, making them lose control when they emerge. Xantaria is a nasty bitch but she’s not stupid. She has to know that what she’s doing will provoke a war.”

“Who’s Xantaria?” Ophelia asked. Read the rest of this entry »
