Nocturne

Young Adult

Sixteen-year-old Korrina Lore is second-in-command of Mischief and Mayhem, a private-school gang with a Robin Hood-esque mission of pranking the popular to protect the misfits. However, when she discovers she’s really a mythological Siren destined to break a three-thousand-year-old curse and save the world, her mission to prank becomes a mission to save.

In the end, Korrina must choose. Either ignore the prophecy at the cost of the Siren race’s existence. Or accept her destiny and save the world.

No matter what she chooses, someone she loves will die.

My fingers made a familiar trail over the image inked into my left wrist. Circle over the infinity curve of the snake eating its own tail. Up the blackened feather that lay across one curve. Then dug my nail into the middle of the other curve. Where the date was imprinted. So I could never forget.

A symbol of death, where death is an infinity, pierced by a burnt feather and the date of my first murder, illegally tattooed on my wrist when I was fifteen.

Dad had given birth to a purple-spotted cow.

Twelve Years

Women's Fiction

After witnessing the effects of a serial killer’s attack on her two college roommates and having to bury her best friend all in one week, Laurel struggles to keep the fears of her past from killing her future.

I should’ve known.

How could i be so stupid, stupid, stupid?

A house made of leaky windows and torn floors and thin doors didn’t protect. A husband made of muscle and love and patience couldn’t protect. A life carefully crafted to measure all risk, to stay inside the lines, to believe the storm didn’t hunt down the same victims over and over and over would never protect. I’d become complacent. Trusting my stupid rules to keep me stupidly safe. Safety was the biggest lie. I’d never be safe.

Never. Never. Never.

I would never forget again.

Faced with the anniversary of her father’s death and the haunting memories of his tattered body, Jesse discovers the answer to keeping his ghost silent. An answer coated in blood and a smile.

The smiles.

If you’re put back together…
