The WeWriWa blog, with links to many fascinating Works In Progress. I’ve found some amazing book through this site. Check it out!


Ah, where was I? Oh, yeah – taking a couple days break from the book, so I didn’t burn it to the ground. Yikes. Sometimes you need to step away. Not like I did with The Vista (15 years), but I’m back on track now. I seriously need to be contemplating a cover. And a tagline. Blurb. Marketing. All the fun stuff that makes me talk to myself in the middle of the night. Luckily, my husband has gotten used to it.

This snippet from Bloodlines features a deep discussion between Shannon and Harlan, a new-found ally. At least, she hopes he is. Harlan is a generation older, a Navy Seal back when there was such things, and human. His perspective is important.

“You tell people Kaden is your son, and they naturally think, biological,” Shan started off thoughtfully. “That’s what you want, because people don’t know the semantics of the Altered. Hell, I don’t. You let them think it, though, because they don’t associate one with the other. To them, the Altered didn’t come from families, they came from corporate laboratories. As long as they believe that, you think you can worry a little less about him.”

“Easy enough to figure out,” Harlan agreed.

“When you meet new people, the first thought in your mind isn’t one of trust. Usually, you wonder if you’ll have to kill any of them, and then you single out which are the alphas. Just in case.”

The Wildblood Series

Twenty years after civilization stopped, a tiny refuge, a place called The Vista, may be one of the last vestiges of humanity. Isolated, guarded, and hiding a dark secret, the people have survived World War Last, and they are content with that. Their children, however, are not. The search for others will send them out into a land they know nothing about, where the line between enemy and ally is blurred.

  1. A good window into the kind of mindset required to survive in this world, thought it was a very effective snippet. Minor nit: “SEAL’ is literally all caps because it’s an acronym or abbreviation for ‘Sea Air and Land’, not “seal” like the animal.
