Onesong – Chapter 5

August 16, 2017

Boy do I owe an apology to some people out there.

I suddenly realized after posting last week’s chapter that I had forgotten to include little summaries about what happened previously in the story. My bad!

I’ll do better starting this week, I promise. I’d hate for someone to not read along because they felt the story was too far along to get started. So, summary coming up.

Enjoy!

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 5 is available for 1 week only! Then, it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear! 

Previously in Onesong: As a child, Rivic destroys not only his parents’ village, but also the village of his aunt and uncle, leaving only him and his twin sister, Nyree, alive. Alone, hungry, and wandering through the woods, the twins are found by a beast that swallows them whole. Ten years later (or so), the twins are hatched from a dragon egg. With each of them receiving special dragon powers, they are charged with saving the world from a terrible evil rising. Unsure of this new world, Nyree quickly becomes ill. Unsure of how to help his sister, Rivic takes Nyree to a tribe where the healer has been awaiting their arrival. For the moment, Rivic believes he’s found a safe place to rest and make Nyree better.

And now, the next chapter of Onesong:

Chapter 5

Nyree shook him awake some time later. “Rivic,” she whispered, “where are we?”

“We’re safe, Nyree,” he muttered as he rolled away from her.

“Are we, Rivic?” she asked, her voice laden with fear. “Have you looked at yourself?”

The words brought instant awareness to him. Rivic bolted upright and looked at his hands. They were streaked Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 4

August 9, 2017

So, in my manuscript, this is actually chapter 3.5. I can’t remember why I made this part come between chapters 3 and 4 originally. Maybe I realized chapter 4 was getting too long and broke it apart. Maybe I did rearrange parts of the story. Anyway, I just laugh and hope that I remember later on that I’m actually now a chapter off from my draft. (grin)

Let’s get to it, shall we?

Enjoy!

Onesong – Chapter 3

I want to thank everyone who has been reading and enjoying the story, especially those of you that take the time to let me know you’re enjoying it.

Stories are part of our nature as humans. We tell stories about our lives to each other. We let our words teleport us to another time and place. We embellish our memories as we relive them. We even have stories that we ourselves don’t necessarily remember until someone else mentions them to us and we have one of those, “Oh, yeah! That did happen,” moments.

Writers are fortunate enough to live multiple lives because we don’t just have our stories and those of our families, but the tales of our characters as well. There is something very special in getting to share that with others. Thank you for letting me share this story with you.

So, away we go. Enjoy!

Onesong – Chapter One

July 19, 2017

I’d been considering what I wanted to run this week and the answer was that I really didn’t have anything I wanted to post right now. I didn’t want to feel rushed to finish a story, even though I’ve got several near completion.

Then, I thought about Onesong. I’ve been longing to get this one done and released, but it always seems to sit on the back burner. Longtime followers may remember this one as being the book I worked on during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month – takes place every November and to “win” a writer must complete 50,000 words in a month — great if you need to get out of your own way and write. See nanowrimo.org if you want more details) a couple years ago. Then, I realized I’d actually been working on two books and had to split them apart (that was fun — not!). I’ve completely drafted Onesong, but there are still a few holes that I need to fill in. So, maybe to spur me along, I thought I’d Read the rest of this entry »
