Kindred Souls - Arik, Eve and The Lost Plains:

Oh what a devilish time I had writing this particular episode today. It was fun peeking into tidbits of Eve's past and gaining a look at what she is capable of doing as one of the Kindred.

In this episode: Reveling in the aftermath with Eve, Arik manages to steal her spiritual essence and takes her to the Lost Plains in an effort to learn more about her...

Kindred Souls - One New Scene Added:

This week I was only able to add one new scene to the story. As a healthcare worker, I am currently working more hours and extra shifts due to the pandemic of the Coronavirus that is currently sweeping the United States. Therefore, my obligations to work are conflicting with my ability to write as much as I'd like. Still! Enjoy the latest addition to the story.

It seems Errol is being caught in a web of lies when he is confronted by Carridon at the facility. With the appearance of the High Council impending, he is also dealing with the capture of his son, who was taken down while shouting about the wild experiments being run at the lab. How Errol is going to work his way out of this mess? We'll just have to wait and see...

Kindred Souls - Three New Scenes Added AND NOW Previews:

This weeks update finds Arik and Eve involved in a heated battle of wills that sets Arik off into emotional overload. Kyle and Chase take refuge during a quiet reprieve, but Kyle has seriously over-extended himself and is now beginning to feel the effects of it. Meanwhile, Ashen takes watch over Angela when the Greys arrive and fulfill their promise to Kyle. He is left in a quandry as he sits there, knowing there are choices he may soon be forced to make.


At the end of each final scene, I've decided to add in a sneak preview for those who enjoy taking a look ahead. Be warned though, there are spoilers if you decide to venture in that direction...

Kindred Souls - Part 1 Is Being Extended!:

In my original format of writing Kindred Souls, I had envisioned each part of the story consisting of one day's time. However, that format is not going to work considering how long some of the upcoming days might be. For that reason, you are about to find scenes that were previously in Part 2 moving on over to Part 1.

Giving the rough draft a once over, I can say that each 'Part' will contain between 24 and 30 scenes from the look of things. Deciding where to end one portion and cut to the next is still a work in progress in these early stages of the writing process.

So, if you see sections pop up in Part 1 and think you must have missed something, you didn't. Part 1 is not set to end until the 25th scene.

This update to the episode index guide is set to take place tomorrow. None of the content within the pages will change besides the title of the scene and where it's placed in the table of contents.

Five New Portions Added To Kindred Souls!:

What an amazing week this was writing the book. It seems Kyle is digging a pretty deep hole that he'll need to find a way of crawling out of when Chase's life is suddenly put on the line due to his mistake.

Things are just getting started as Eve explores the fortress and discovers for herself that Arik was telling the truth. Will she be able to accept comfort from him when he finally returns from his trip to the underground?

Meanwhile, Errol thought he had it all figured out, but the Anaak Elite darkening his doorstep was a move he couldn't have predicted.

It's all just getting started as things get moving!

Happy reading!

Day one has come to a close as Errol discovers his son is missing and Arik uncovers a disturbing fact about Eve that may change his view of her forever. As a new day dawns and Part 2 of the book opens, Kyle realizes the mystery that is Chase is only deepening. It is then that he makes a decision to call on the Elders for help.

Happy reading!

On this very lovely Leap Year Day, I added three new portions of the story to the page. It seems Eve is about to face off against one of the Kindred she knows nothing about. The aftermath of it leaves Arik deeply concerned for her welfare... And back on the surface, Kyle is preparing to make a bold move in his quest to learn the truth about Chase. It may be that he's about to take things too far...

Silent Mysteries Is Being Re-published:

I have debated the idea of re-writing and re-publishing Silent Mysteries for several years. At 610 pages long, it is cost-prohibitive for a lot of fans to purchase. Now, I'm determined to do something to change that.

I'm taking a look at Silent Mysteries with fresh eyes to edit it down and divide it into two smaller novels. My publication company charges significantly less to print books under 300 pages, so this seems like a wise move.

Believe me, this is awesome news for visitors of the website. The whole novel will be posted in its entirety as I work on it, free for everyone to read. The entire novel! Not just the first 150 pages...

If you never had a chance to read the whole book, you're in for a treat. Check back each week for new updates. If you follow me on Facebook, you'll hear about new sections being added right in your newsfeed.

Happy reading!
