December WiP-ing Along

Today’s WIP snippet: “It’s rare for them to know a ghost from a different time frame the same way you and I know living people. It’s not like there’s some ghostly party going on where they discuss their afterlives with … Continue reading

Last NaNoPost of 2013

Here’s your last teaser from November: “They must have their apocalypse—their dead in legions unburied, an endless sea of bones….” As predicted, I didn’t make it to 50,000 words for the month of November, but the count wasn’t too far … Continue reading
