WIP Tidbit

*in her best Obi-Wan Kenobi impression* Hello there! Long time no post, I know. Still trying to get the hang of blogging (I barely have a grasp on "the Twitter") but I thought I'd try to get back in the swing of things because I'm no quitter. I'm an extreme procrastinator, which is totally different. … Continue reading WIP Tidbit

Smoke and Mirrors (#photostoryprompt 6/7/19)

(Photo by Radina Valova @radinavalova, host of #PhotoStoryPrompt) Issa, V, and Ron are at it again. A micro story written for the aforementioned Twitter prompt featuring our favorite Death-hunting trio, a sleazy Dionysus, and pants-less tree hugging. *** "What's this room for?" Ron made a sloppy gesture at the elegant hall, drizzling vodka onto the … Continue reading Smoke and Mirrors (#photostoryprompt 6/7/19)

The Road To Hell (Issa & the Gang, Ch. 2)

Here's Chapter Two of the currently untitled book featuring everyone's favorite Firebird driving, foul-mouthed Egyptian sorceress and necromancer, Issa, with her friends, Ron, the perpetually drunk Arthurian knight, and V, the ever-bored, slightly spacey reincarnated Hindu goddess.

Wake Me When We’re Dead (#PhotoStoryChallenge 5/24/18)

(Photo by Radina Valova @RadinaValova, #photostorychallenge host) ((For this challenge, I used characters from my After Life series that I'm working on alongside my other 87 side projects)) Issa passed several gas stations before finding one that was just the right amount of out-of-the-way and isolated.

Derailed (#PhotoStoryChallenge 3/29/18)

(Photo by Radina Valova @RadinaValova, #photostorychallenge host) The train doors shut with a mechanical grunt but the adrenaline pulsing in my veins kept me sweaty-palmed and twitchy-eyed until sometime after we finally left the station.
