Stalking the Demon is with the editor! Hurrah! I’m pitching for a late August release date.

‘Father has c-c-called for another vote on silencing you, in l-l-light of your refusal to cooperate. The lord wizard has h-h-held it over until after the gate opening, but Father seems c-c-confident Harlden, Seraphine and Merildwin will vote in his favour this t-t-time.’ Dalvor turned his head away, but the red staining his cheeks was still visible.

Alloran’s whole body went rigid, and he slammed his hand against the bars. The clang of the metal echoed through the confines of the oubliette. Silenced. To forever be unable to feel the interdimensional energies and make magic with them. The sudden flood of emotion left him numb and unable to respond.


Thanks for dropping by! Don’t forget, this draft is pre-edits and as such won’t be perfect. If you like what you read, and are so inclined, show your support by leaving a comment. Stalking the Demon is expected to be released late August. If you’d like to sample more of my writing, check out the free short stories available on this site.

More about Stalking the Demon:

Alloran lost his hand to thwart his renegade friend–but the world is still going to hell.

Six months after Ladanyon’s defeat, Gisayne is fading away from a baffling illness. Alloran is desperate for a cure, but he has a secret–the seven circles of hell are unstable. His worst fear is that the terrible mirror spell cast upon Gisayne has wrought some connection between her and the demon dimensions.

As everything Alloran loves races toward destruction, he does the unthinkable and refuses to obey the council of wizards. The only people who can help him are the two research assistants assigned by the council–but he knows he can’t trust them.

All the answers are locked away in the last place anyone wants to go: hell.
