*Ahem* Last year's Teasers & Excerpts Month wasn't good...at all. So, we will act like this is the first time this is happening, yeah?
I have enough stories in the works and/or are brand new this year! If you would like an excerpt or teaser from any of them, please let me know! I'll be more than willing to upload some to AO3. More info on that when the time comes...
Here are summaries for a few stories:
Demon(s) and the Grimmworld
For millennia, humans and demons fought for the right to exist in the same world. At the center of the chaos is Azraello, a half-breed born from a twisted union of demon and human, on the run from those he once called family and friends. In the midst of sickness and peril, he learns of Valandau, a de-facto commander in a dysfunctional rebel group consisting of other hybrids like himself. The rebels shun the mindlessness of the war, and they have learned of a world much kinder than their own.
The plan: Survive the plight of a bioorganic virus. The goal: Migrate to Daerth for a chance to live.
Darkness and Silver Lining
Every thousand years, the system of Reon's fate is determined by one of the two Essence Forces of Light and Darkness obtaining the power of a nigh-sentient comet. Alongside his comrades and his ward Briél, the Hilikzian knight Bastar intends to find aid in the form of a wary alliance between Light and another, far more ancient force against Darkness. However, he has secrets. He loves his ward, and he loves his best friend, Nevan. But only one of them knows the truth of his existence, that he is one of Darkness.
He knows his aligned Force will fail in its attempt to snuff out the light. What even he wonders is whether he will be willing to perish with it when its time comes.
Human Shed Skin: Human (Book 2)
Five years after the new millennium, Jean continues to live as a merciless inhuman hunter, but with the added weight of being an inhuman, himself. He lives a dual life with his family and hunters on Isle Veni and his small family created with Celezar in Connecticut. As his fellow Hunters have learned from the past ordeals to work together and adapt, it is becoming harder to maintain his secrets. All the while, he learns of terrible truths that may be the catalyst he needs to break away from Lowell tradition.
He will learn who the real monsters are—those who dare to show what they are or those who hide behind the guise of saints.
There are also the two stories, KING and Bugaboo & The Grinn King, which are a supernatural novella/short story that tells how Lucifer fell according to my shared universe, and a horrific, dark erotic romance with my "version" of Slenderman. 😝
You heard that right. Unfortunately, it's difficult to give them summaries right now, but I'll come up with them, eventually.
Finally, there is also Liquorish, as I've mentioned before. Which version of Liquorish would I work on during February?
That's up to you!
That's a lot of stuff I can share! I'm excited for February. I'm glad to say everything has at least a chapter or two, if not long chapters, to share. I'm going to go forward with this even if I have to rewrite every chapter...on...mobile...
Goodness, help me.
But I am determined to make at least the beginning of 2021 an interesting one. I feel I let everyone down last year and in 2019. I'll do my best to trudge through. Ganbatte, me!
Pleasepleaseplease let me know which one of these (if not all!!) of these stories sound interesting. I'll go from there! I know I'm not the most proficient writer, but I am trying.
On the 28th, there will be a poll asking which of these stories you'd like to see as a full-length story...!
