Excerpt from my next book...

My next book is coming along well! I hope to have it self-published in 2023. Fingers crossed! In the meantime, I'll give you snippets along the way. Here's the intro...

"It was do or die. Most likely, die.

Nadia knew what had to be done. She knew because she had been here before. Her dad, however, was not one to believe in ghost stories. So she was terrified he was going to be stuck in this hellhole forever, or even be killed by the monstrous half-lives that lived in this abyss below their town. How could she convince him to trust her? To follow her? To give up everything he believed in and do exactly as she told him to do?

She wasn’t confident she could convince him. He had wasted away—his body and his mind. He might not even remember her. He had to trust her, though. He had to. If he didn’t, she’d be alone and orphaned at best; at worst, she could be caught forever in this middle world with him. She had already been warned by a half-life that they would probably die trying to escape together."

Keep writing, keep creating, keep resting and playing so you can keep writing and creating!
