Resounding Echo – Excerpt (Chapter 27)

Selissa took a shaky breath to steady herself. “If you’re not here for me,” she said slowly. She knew that if he really wasn’t going to hurt her, she should just get the hell out of there and put as much distance between herself and him as humanly possible. But no matter how frightening she found him, there was also something about him that made her pause. “Then why are you here?”

His grin widened and Selissa felt the blood freeze in her veins. She had never met anyone who made a smile look so unnerving.

“I had some…” Ardeth paused for a moment. “Business to take care of in the area. And I decided to pay this place a visit while I was here.”

Selissa shuddered at the way he said the word ‘business’. She wondered how many innocent lives were lost every time he had business to take care of.

Resounding Echo – Excerpt (Chapter 11)

Alassane characterAlassane was in every way a rather strange individual. She had learned that underneath the sarcastic attitude… well, there was more sarcasm and more than a few annoying habits. But underneath all that, he was rather intelligent. He knew a lot about a wide range of subjects and seemed to be able to find a solution to most problems.

On the other hand, when it came to social interaction, he had about as much common sense as a cactus.

Another Crazy Time at SVScon

Artist Alley SVScon BooksAnother great convention has come and gone and I sit here, completely exhausted, but with a good feeling in my stomach!

This was my second year attending the danish J-pop convention SVScon as an author (Read about last year here). Last year was a great success, with a lot of interest in my debut novel, Resounding Echo, so I was really excited to be there again this year. Even more so because this was the first time the sequel, Silent Sound, was available for purchase.

GASP!

Yes, I said it. The guests at SVScon were the first people able to get their hands on a copy of Silent Sound. It’s finally ready and I enjoyed showing off the brand new paperbacks at my stand in the Artist Alley.

But fear not, Silent Sound will be ready for purchase as both ebook and paperback at Amazon within the month, and as soon as possible as an ebook at every other major retailer. If the stars are with me, it might even be next week!

But let’s get back on track…

This year I could be found at my table both friday and saturday. It’s always fun to be at a J-pop convention. ‘Cause really, who wants to talk to some guy in jeans and a t-shirt, when you can talk to a completely masked person splattered in blood?

…Okay, I admit a couple of those guys terrified me. But really, it’s so much fun to see all the people in costumes. And SVScon, despite being a J-pop convention, has a very wide range. Instead of just focusing on japanese comics and music, there’s a lot of people dressed up as characters from western movies, comics and games.

There was almost an entire Avengers-team (I don’t think anyone invited Bruce Banner, though… Poor green guy), and Batman and Robin ran into the Joker and Harley Quinn as well. There was also a couple of zombies from Left 4 Dead.

What really terrified me, though, was a masked guy who looked like some mutated horror version of Santa Claus. I have NO idea which character he was supposed to be, but he was way more creepy than someone dressed in what looked like a full-body santa hat should possibly be.

Oh, and did I mention that the Grim Reaper stopped by?

Sigh… How come I can never go anywhere without it turning completely insane?

Read an E-Book Week on Smashwords!

Read an E-book Week

I know I’m a bit late in announcing this, but I wanted to tell everyone that I’m participating in Smashwords’ ‘Read an E-Book Week’!

The event runs from 3-9. March, and it’s an amazing chance to discover new writers at bargain prices. As a treat to people who follows this blog, as well as those following me on Facebook and Twitter, both Huntress and Resounding Echo will be free during this week.

If you have yet to pick up one of those titles, it’s the perfect chance to do it before Silent Sound gets released in late March or early April!

I plan on spending ‘Read an E-Book Week’ discovering a lot of great new writers, and I hope all of you will do the same! 

Why are you still reading this? Get going!
