Monday Flash Fic – Taking Fly – 03/27/2017

Darkness

Taking Fly

“You have to hit eighty-eight miles before you reach the lights.” James laughed and extended his arms. He moved side to side, feeling the wind against him. His backpack pulled his weight backward, making him loose his footing. Standing up, he cleaned his muddy hands over his jeans before pushing his beanie further down his damp hair.

“Doc, I’m almost there. I’m not going to make it.” He walked faster. And as soon as he reached the dimmed lights, a strong flash propelled his body forward. The fog was finally gone.

“Nice to have you home,” Doc said.

Nice indeed.

Website Revamped

It took most of the weekend, but I gave this website a facelift. It’s not perfect, or everything I wanted to do, but it would work until I have the time to play around again. Hopefully, the next time will not take another two years.

The changes are mostly cosmetic. I tried to organize the content to make it easier to navigate and starting next month, all my writing updates will take place at the Hunter Hues blog. This way, you don’t get bored with my word counts and book reads.

Screenshot 2017-03-27 12.07.18So far, I’m pretty happy with the outcome and one of the main changes is the addition of a “Featured” page. There, you can follow the posts depending on the topic you prefer. I also added the new books and updated the free reads. I hope this makes your reading experience a bit easier.

Later this week, I’d be updating my social media presence and the rest of my websites. I hope to have everything set for April since I’d be writing the next book in the Cupcakes & Brews series by then.

Have a great week & enjoy the revamped site!

#RainbowSnippets *~* March 25-26, 2017 *~*

I spent most of my time this weekend updating this website. I added this post retroactively to keep the story intact. When you’re done reading, feel free to play around. Now I remember why I haven’t done it in two years. It takes way too much time. 🙂

Will see what surprises these boys have for us today. I hope the wait is worth it.

Week 18 of 52: Luci’s POV [story continues right after the previous entry]

Elliott gasped and felt backwards, Vincent in tow. Lucifer smiled before standing to help them to their feet. “It’s over. Take deep breaths and let them wash through.” His son looked at him in disbelieve, but did as instructed. Vincent on the other hand, lay unconscious covering Elliott with his body. He reached down and moved the demon to the side. “Look at me Elliott. I want you to close your eyes.” Lucifer waited for Elliott to focus. “Now, I want you to think about Vincent laying on your bed.” Elliott smirked, a pleasant smile setting on his face. “Okay, look at me. Don’t freak out, please.”

[Fridays with Friends] Casey Wolfe & One Bullet

I recently met Casey Wolfe thanks to our publisher, NineStar Press, and I’m glad to have her stop by today to share an interview with the protagonist of One Bullet, Ethan Brant & Shawn Greyson. Enjoy!


OneBullet-SliderHey, guys!  Casey Wolfe, back for another round of questions with Shawn Greyson and Ethan Brant, the couple featured in my new novel, “One Bullet.”

Casey:  Thanks for stopping by again.
Shawn:  No problem.
Ethan:  What day is it?

C:  I’m surprised Shawn managed to drag you away.  You’ve been playing “Mass Effect: Andromeda,” right?
E:  It is epic.  I think I’m like 20 hours in already?  I dunno.
S:  Someone’s using his vacation time.
E:  I’m not stupid, alright?
C:  Have you started romancing anyone yet?
E:  Not yet.  I’m thinking of hooking up with Gil.  I don’t think I’ve found all the options yet.
C:  Who did you romance in the original trilogy?
E:  No one, until they finally gave us Kaidan.
S:  I feel my brain melting just talking about video games.
C:  I guess I’m not asking you what your favorite game is then.
S:  Moving on?

C:  Fine, here’s one for you, Shawn.  Read anything good lately?
S:  Actually, I’m reading “Beyond Band of Brothers,” about Dick Winters and the 101st Airborne.
C:  Easy Company.  *grins* So, you took my recommendation then.
S:  It’s very interesting.  I think I’ll read Brotherton’s works next.

C:  Ethan, have you been out with the gang for some free-running since the last time I got to tag along?
E:  Of course.  Are you gonna let us show you some more stuff, or what?
C:  My knee says ‘no.’  How about Shawn?  I thought he was-
S:  I like living, thank you very much.
E:  Such a worry wart.

C:  What would be your idea of the perfect romantic date?
S:  Probably a nice, private booth in an upper-scale restaurant.  One of those places with low mood-lighting and candles on the table.
E:  That’s easy.  A horseback ride by moonlight, and a picnic to stargaze.
C:  When are either of you taking me out?
E:  *laughs*  Sorry, taken.

C:  Which House would you belong to in Game of Thrones?
E:  Stark.
S:  “Winter is coming?”
E:  It is indeed.  And I want a direwolf.
S:  Well, my dragons and I will see about that.  House Targaryen, in case you couldn’t guess.
E:  Which way did the coin flip?
S:  Considering I haven’t gone mad yet, I guess the fates gave me the sane side of the coin.  Though it’s a near thing between you and Davies.

C:  I talked to Sebby just the other day, but haven’t heard from Davies in awhile.  How’s he been?
S:  A pain in the ass.
C:  When isn’t he?
S:  See?  This is what I’ve been saying.

C:  So, since Ethan’s taking his vacation days now, I guess you won’t be going anytime soon, but where would you like to vacation together?
E:  I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii.
S:  That’d be nice.  I want to go to Ireland and Scotland at some point.
C:  That’s where your family’s from, if I’m remembering correctly?
S:  Mostly Scotch-Irish, yes.  Some German on my mom’s side.
C:  And Brant’s an English name, right?
E:  I’ve got the entire UK in the gene pool.  *laughs*  Dad’s English with some Irish and Scottish somewhere back in the bloodline.  Mom’s Welsh and Italian.

C:  Last question, and be honest now.  What’s your D&D alignment?
E:  Neutral Good, leaning towards Chaotic.
S:  What in the hell is D&D?
E:  Dungeons and Dragons.
S:  Do I look like I’ve played that?
E:  He’s Lawful Good.
C:  I assume asking about what type of character Shawn would play is pointless then.
E:  I think a Paladin would suit him.
S:  How do you even know about this game?
E:  Sebby and I lived in the nerd dorm, and he was into it.  Anyway, I thought about playing with them, and I was planning a Druid character.
C:  Good choice.  What was Seb’s character?
E:  Ranger.  An elf too, as I recall.
S:  I give up on all of this.

Once again, thank you both for hanging out with me.  Always great to see you guys.  Be sure to check out Shawn and Ethan’s story, “One Bullet,” launching March 27th!

BLURB

When Ethan Brant was shot, he found himself dealing with severe PTSD and unable to do his job as a police officer any longer. With the aid of Detective Shawn Greyson, the man who saved his life, Ethan not only finds himself again but discovers love as well.

Shawn’s life growing up was less than ideal, however, he overcame that to become who he is today. That doesn’t mean he isn’t missing something in his life. What Shawn hadn’t realized, upon first meeting, was that Ethan could give him all that and more.

One bullet changed both their lives.
