A new story to read

I’ve been sharing a new story this month. It’s called Night Aggressions and is a horror story by Trent Becker and me. We’re posting a new chapter each Friday until it’s done. We’re posting it to the Emerald Dragon blog, here’s a link to the page with the chapters posted to-date. Go catch up before Chapter 4 drops this Friday. And be sure to leave us a comment on the chapters to let us know how we’re doing.

When we’re done, I’ll wrap it up neatly into an ebook for ya’ll as well.

Here’s the cover for our story:

I’m reading through and pulling all my beta reader feedback into a Word doc. This has been a fantastic process. So many things to ponder, so many times I was nodding with a smile when the desired effect came across.

Definitely more work to be done, but I have so much faith in this story now. So much faith in my characters. Having a beta readership was one of the best things I could have done for this book series.

Inside the office were a host of police officers in uniform. Some were bent over examining evidence on the rug, and others were in a corner speculating.

“Personal, I say,” one officer argued, “What with all the blood.”

“You always say that,” the other said.

Mercedes was enraged. She was having a bad day, mental breakdown, and now she was expected to be civilized. She wanted to punch someone… again.

“If this isn’t hell, get me a bus ticket.”
