Indie Spotlight: Skeins Unfurled

Indie author promotion! “Skeins Unfurled” by K. M. Vanderbilt

Calling lovers of Norse mythology and Dungeons and Dragons!  Loosely based on the mythos, a diverse and complex plot awaits you, where the grey of morality awaits and the unpredictability of characters — gods and humans — keep you on your toes.

When the murder of a god shatters a thousand years of peace, chaos reigns among the known worlds. Even the Norns, blinded and stripped of their powers, cannot see how it will end.

Left without guidance, some gods choose to make their own fates. Others cannot. Old ties are torn apart while new ones are forged. And amidst that tenuous balance, ancient secrets emerge. War looms on the horizon.

In a struggle where battle lines constantly shift and allies just as quickly become enemies, nothing is sacred. For some, the end comes sooner than Ragnarok.

Book promotion! “The Clown Game” by DriveInHorrorshow

Okay so clowns creep me the heck out and this book drove that fear in even more. Creepy clowns, a game you can’t win, and your life (or at least body bits) at stake…

Ugh, my mouth went dry just talking about it. But check it out if you want a good spook.

You stand to win big if you dare to play in this poker game. But you might not leave in one piece…

The Devil’s Music

This one started a bit slower than the others. The first two sections about the singing doesn’t seem to progress the story any: it was rehearsals and yet more rehearsals (which I get, but the story then drags as a result). There are quite a few names – perhaps introduce them one by one instead of all at once to let us get to know them better and know their place in the formation. The third section definitely got the story going – people are disappearing, some are overly anxious, others are more laidback. This is the cue for me to realise something was wrong and to carry on reading.

Check out this Underswap AU fanfic featuring a murder mystery and monsters.

After all the monsters from the underground were free, everything seemed to be perfect. The peace between the Humans and Monster wasn’t that perfect but it was alright. Chara lived the monsters in peace and everything was fine. Right? But when Asgore goes to the underground to see how the golden flowers were. A mysterious voice of a child calls out from the room, calling for help. When Asgore goes in the room he spots a teenage child laying on the bed of golden flowers badly bruised and was blooding out. Asgore goes and helps the child, but what he doesn’t know was that, that child was going to change his and his family lives forever.

This about how a girl named Lilly who goes through the underground to go out to save her little sister, before it was to late.

All The Sins (The Art of Madness Prompt)

The second prompt in Nyhterides’s ‘The Art of Madness’ competition revolved the main character finding a strange CD-Rom, the voice of which tells him she represents all his sins he was afraid to commit, and then him waking up in a strange place.

This piece took me about three days of puzzling before I realised what I wanted to write about. There is nothing particularly twisted or scary about finding a CDR or waking up in the middle of nowhere, but there’s always something scary about people. Like my previous entry, I drew on a few of the stories I’ve read in the past year and mashed in something of my own.
