Raven’s Undoing ~ Unedited Excerpt ~ Dying

I cry out as my legs give way and I slowly slump down onto the dock. I sit with my back against the railing and draw my knees up to my chest and bury my face in my gloved hands. I am sobbing uncontrollably. My heart is wrenching in pain and feels like it might explode through the front of my chest. For a moment I am thankful that no one else is here to witness my emotional breakdown. Lately the park has been secluded this time of evening, right before dusk. The temperatures are beginning to drop even more each day as that bitter cold northern air brings us closer to winter.

I continue to weep, for how long, I’m not sure. I feel my body eventually start to relax as my heavy sobs turn into just a slow steady stream of tears. I finally lift my face and realize that the sun is setting around me. The moon looks full as its light starts to dance across the lakes water. I am suddenly aware of the chill in the air as I start to shiver……….

The wave of dizziness passes and I let go of the railing in an attempt to stand up completely on my own. I really don’t feel so well. I take in a deep breath and start walking back towards my Jeep. I only make it a couple of steps though before I stumble and slam down onto the dock, barely catching myself with my hands before my face eats the wooden walkway. Damn that hurt! My head is spinning again and I feel very close to passing out. I can’t believe this is happening, not now……….

I feel my body weakening. My arms give out from underneath me as I start to relax down onto the cold dock, through no control of my own. My phone slips from my hand as my grip weakens, but before I can press the emergency dial button. Oh God. I can’t move. My eyelids are growing heavy. The light is fading away. I try to cry out for help, but the sound that escapes my lips is barely a whisper. It doesn’t matter anyways. No one is out here to hear my cry for help.

I guess this is it. It’s not so bad; peaceful and easy actually. Better than dying from a broken heart I guess…

Raven’s Undoing ~ Unedited Excerpts ARE COMING!

Nine and a half months of blood, sweat, and tears; I have finally finished writing Raven’s Undoing! With that being said, many of you know that there is a lot of work that has to now be done before it is ready to publish. All I know is that I’m hoping to launch it during one of the upcoming summer months. Raven’s story is only two books, so this second book will be a tell all. I won’t make you wait any longer on a third book for answers. (I will be writing a third book, but it will be someone else’s story, not Ravens.) Starting tomorrow, I am going to periodically post Unedited Excerpts from the book, to get you all excited.

When I wrote ~The End~ I felt such relief and also overwhelming sadness at the same time. This past year and a half, Raven and Grant’s story has been playing out in my head, consuming me. My characters have been telling me their story as I have been frantically writing it all down, for each and every one of you. These two have an Epic ending to their story, and I can’t wait to share it with you! For now, I bid Raven and Grant farewell. Maybe someday Raven’s snarky voice will pop back into my head demanding that I write another book starring her.


Raven’s Innocence is available on Amazon (& Barnes and Noble.)
This is a delicious read! I promise!
