I'm seventeen, live in England, and an aspiring author. I like to hear/read helpful critisism on my work and will return the favour by reading another's work and leaving a comment.
My debut novel will, I hope, be Dead Raiser, a story I have been working on for a few years.
"Demons run when a good man goes to war. Night will fall and drown the sun. When a good man goes to war. Friendship dies and true love lies. Night will fall and the dark will rise. When a good man goes to war. Demons run, but count the cost. The battle's won, but the child is lost." Ivy had never given much thought to the popular quote, but now she understands it all too well. As an invisible shadow spreads across the world, it's up to the beaten, the bruised, the abused and the downtrodden to hold the darkness back and bring forth the light of day.
Blackbird, Texas, is a small ccollege town that looks safer than it is. As dusk falls, the residents lock themselves inside and fall silent until sunrise. No dogs bark, no cats roam the hedgerows, and the only people who go out are the unsuspecting night course students. Nobody who passes through the town's boarders at sundown lives to see the sunrise. Merle Sinclair is drawn to the many mysterious murders and comes to Blackbird with the intention of finding out just what is happening to the night time commuters. As a man with many secrets of his own, Merle must tread carefully as he takes up a job as a night watchmen at the college. During his time there, Merle makes friends with a senior student, who he finds out is planning on visiting family in Dallas that Christmas, and that her schedule means that if she is to make it home in time, Jessica must leave at nightfall.
Sallie Anderson is practically dead, left in a comatose condition by an event that she cannot quite remember. Her saving grace is Clair Skelton. Despite his outwardly sweet demeanor, Clair is neither a man to trust implicitly or 100% sane and has a tendency to commit various crimes on a whim. If she is to survive, Sallie must keep on her mentors good side and trust the advice he gives her, no matter how crazy, and learn to walk in the grey lines of reality and dreams, life and death in order to discover what lies beneath the black veil in her memory.
Wolves Cry is my work in progress novel, staring a younger Tristan McCall, a character those who have read Dead Raiser will recognise as Ivy's father. Well, now we will be taking a step back in time in Wolves Cry to when a younger Tristan takes his first case as a detective.
Children are dying. They vanish from their garden, from the school playground, or from the local park and appear days later in Neston Woods, near Shaw and Whitley, as mangled, half eaten corpses. Rumors of a vicious black dog roaming the streets of Shaw and Whitley at night strike fear into the hearts of all parents and dog walkers alike. Which of the three well known black Labradors in the area is doing the mauling? Unknown aged Henry, eight year old Humphrey, or nine year old Beast? DI McCall is summoned to find out, but he already has his doubts. How can a creature with no opposable thumbs open a gate and take a two year old child from its outdoor playpen, right from under its mother's kitchen window? As more clues are discovered that prove the Whitley Wolf is in fact human, DI McCall must reface the horrors of his personal yesterday all over again.
