I can’t remember how long their bodies burned, but I do remember the sun setting before it was over, not far off in the distance, just beyond the still and dismal outline of downtown San Diego. Its flame-colored glare hit the Pacific Ocean and slowly melted beyond the horizon as smoke drifted up in dark gray coils into the sky. The fleeing sun took the heat away with it, and as the first stars of the night made their appearance, the crisp chill of January returned.

Ash settled all around me, resting on my eyelashes and the tip of my nose, threatening to choke the oxygen from my lungs. I kept vigil over my dead family while sitting at the edge of the garden, slumped forward with my legs crossed and my hands resting loosely in my lap. A steady breeze from the approaching night collided with the draft from the fire, sending hot gusts of air in my direction. My face and arms stung from the warmth, but the smell was worse than the heat. The strong odor of burning flesh kept my nostrils flared and stomach turning.

I knew that day it was true what they say; one can never forget the smell of a dead body. I know, I’ll never forget.

Story Transition Time

Phew. With a new release doing its thing, now it is time to decide which of my current WIP’s will receive my full attention. Be warned, I could start a project that sounds good at the time, then end up working on another, as the Muse is the one who truly makes those decisions, but I figured it would be fun to ask what the readers most want!

Before you scramble online and blow up this post with ‘MORE STATION SERIES BOOKS!’ or ‘WE WANT THE THIRD FIND ME BOOK!’ two things – Piper’s story is done for this year, and Riley’s will continue soon. I want to work on something different for a little while. Just for a little while. Here is what I’ve started that needs love…

BEHIND the GLASS – a Psychological Thriller for mature adults that centers around a woman and her long-term stalker.

THE LAST FAIRY of FAILYNN – a Middle Grade fantasy about the adventures of the last surviving fairy princess of Failynn.

SUMMER of LOVE – a Women’s Contemporary centering around ‘Poppy Love’, a middle-aged woman who learns the true definition of ‘family’.

MADNESS – a Horror/Thriller about a crazed killer with a taste for blood.

UNTITLED – a Science Fiction adventure that centers around Hutch – a man who wants to save himself, and A’ris – a woman who wants to save the world.

So, you see, there is plenty to choose from. It’s just a matter of actually making a choice. Someone offer up suggestions for what sounds interesting to them. Please. I’ll gladly accept the help. 😀

 

Happy Sunday!
