Saturday Taste Test

Well, it’s Saturday in my time zone, so get over it … (o:

So, I’m following a blog that is getting back into regular Friday snippets – sections of the author’s current work in progress (first draft). I think it’s kind of cool, but I don’t know if it interests anyone. Plus, my stuff is already fully available online to those who are curious enough, so I thought I might play with the idea of short shots. Little tasters that introduce my world.

Brief excerpt (the current blurb – see also comments) might help with “getting it”:

She gripped his hand and arm as she had done for Jonas and repeated her efforts to think healing thoughts. But, again nothing happened. She released her hold, shook out her hands and tried again.

Aris’ murmuring ceased. She sat back, looked up at him and said, “Am I broken already?” Was she only good for one external healing?

“He passed several minutes ago. I think it’s too late.”

“There’s a time limit?” Llew was beginning to get really pissed off at her power. It killed when she didn’t want to, but couldn’t save those that mattered.

Too brief? Want to read more? Well, I am after alpha-readers (“What’s an alpha-reader?” you ask, why, it’s someone who helps keep an author on track … or, at the very least, says “Keep going, you’ve got this!”) so if you’re keen, I’m keen. I’m going to post links to where I am posting updates under the WoW menu.




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
