Sample Chapter

COTHIMAGES

Read the prologue and 1st chapter of The Cost of Two Hands!

If you’re a regular visitor to this blog, you know I love to write stories for my nieces and nephews: The Texas Cousins Adventure Stories. But, did you know I’m also working on a YA Faerie Stories series? It has hints of fairy tales, a twist of steampunk, and undeserved rescues. Here’s what it’s about:

The Artists are gone. The world is trapped in winter. Young expendable lives fade fast. Petty wars are run by petty men. One mother flees. One man fights. One girl hunts the hunters.


Jonah relied on violence to survive. After Soul paid the price for Jonah’s crimes and adopted him, the boy had to adapt to a new life: reading, writing, and learning to control his uncanny ability to get into fights. But when his first good friend is kidnapped in order to build a machine endowed with a human essence, Jonah must apply his fighting skills in a new way. Can the fists that once beat a crone be used for the good of others?

If you enjoy the first chapter, please share it and leave a comment. Let me know if you would like to be a beta reader. I’m always looking for fresh opinions on my story.

If you’d like to keep up with this story as it grows and, Lord Willing, is published, follow my other blog Faerie Stories from the Worlds before the Door.

Thank You!
