Blurry (Flash Fiction)

FLASH FICTION PROMPT 

It’s getting blurry.

How did this turn into such a mess?

I don’t get it.

It was a fantastic line, it was a great moment, it should have been perfect.

But you didn’t smile. The look in your eyes–was that fear? Why are you afraid of me? I made sure that I wore my contacts today. There’s no way you could’ve seen my eyes. My weird two-colored eyes.

There’s no way you could have known.

But you did.


I loved you–is that why it hurts right now?

Ellis Lathmore is the only Earth elemental bearer in the Amerinth Twilight Academy. Lately, it seems like his gift has been multiplying exponentially and in the very worst kind of way. From earthquakes to unexpected displays of strength, Ellis is worried that the monster inside of him might destroy everything he’s ever cared about.

Earthen Shadow (free ebook)


Hey everyone!

So, I've been busy over at my tumblr for most of this month, prepping for the Trial by Earth(TBE) release that happens tomorrow. I am so excited, but first things first, Earthen Shadow went live this week as a free short story prequel to TBE.

Earthen Shadow was my pet project while TBE went through the editing and revision stage. This prequel-ish snippet from the Twilight Trials universe, features training Master Kalen, from Trial by Earth (releasing July 24th!), and what led up to the starting point for Ellis’ story.

It’s free now and forever. You can download it off of Smashwords in any form that you like, (epub, kindle[mobi], a pdf or just read it right there in the browser). It should appear at other vendors by next week. Please feel free to share it, tweet it, or link to it. Review if you like. An excerpt from Trial by Earth is also included in the back.

Synopsis:

Master Kalen is the training master for earth elemental Ellis Lathmore, best known as the youngest Twilight Guardian in fifty years. Kalen has a fickle version of precognition via reflective surfaces, possessing the ability to tell when something significant lurks beneath the surface. When Ellis’ former sponsored student, Terrance McGowen, comes to ask a favor, he sets the stage for a chain reaction that won’t be stopping anytime soon. Kalen rarely interferes unless there is no other choice, but now he must decide whether to prepare for the incoming storm or try and prevent it.

FLASH FICTION PROMPT

“Here, just give it to the bellboy,” Thom fished in his pocket and drew out a scrap of folded paper. “Hurry now, would you?”

His niece looked at him, then at his hand and rolled her eyes as she took the proffered tip. “He’s not even here helping us,” she complained. “Why do we have to tip him?”

“Because he’s not the bellboy, he’s our bodyguard. Now go and give it to him. The one with the scar at the desk. If I go, they’ll know something’s up. Hurry.”

His niece hesitated for a moment, then turned towards the reception desk. “You’ll still be here, right?” she asked.

“Of course I will,” he lied. “I would never leave you alone.”
