there's going to be something new here...

the 'stuff' is a novella so you should really read the rest of this

Something awesome, actually. 

Since last year, I've been tinkering with a particularly exciting thing. It's not the sort of thing I normally do, and it's a bit of a scary thing, but it feels like it's time to start showing y'all some of my work, and I can't think of a story I'd rather showcase than this novella.

So starting on Saturday, I'll be releasing segments of my gangster/family/blood-curse/mystery novella, THEIR BLOOD BE LAID.

To which you say,

"This is short notice, and I don't even know what it's about."

Short notice, yes. I meant to hype it up but between lots of traveling and basically graduating high school (heyooo) time has been short. So you're getting notice now, and hopefully we pick up steam along the way. I'll post it both here on the blog and on Wattpad, depending on your preferences. A SHORT SUMMARY:

There are things that Áine Tracey knows about her family. She knows that the family legacy is a long, bloody one, and that her father holds New York City's drug trade in two tight hands. She knows that one day she'll be a part of it, but she never expected to find that out by waking up covered in blood that's not her own.

Blood curses run deep, and Áine is unwilling to accept the inevibility that once the blood starts, it won't end until a family member dies. The interruptions and snooping of mediocre reporter Laslo Hugh is just one more annoyance she's determined to solve. Laslo, however, has other plans -- the Tracey family is a black hole of secrets just waiting to be uncovered, and he intends to be the one reporter they can't buy off, blood curses and bleeding girls be damned. Their investigation leads them into the events surrounding the curse as the death toll spikes, and in the end, Áine may be forced to take family matters into her own hands.


I've had a lot of fun during the long process of writing this novella, and I'm looking forward to letting y'all read it, so, y'know, you can CRY. This one comes with a disclaimer -- it's quite bloody (I wouldn't say gory, but yknow), and I haven't shied away from harsher language. So if you prefer things clean, this isn't for you! I get it, but it didn't feel right to hold back on this one, and it's by nature going to be slightly intense. 

Section #1 releases on SATURDAY. This Saturday, the 14th (short notice!), and like I said, it'll be available on both Wattpad and this blog, whichever you'd rather have. I'll post links all over the place once it's done.

You should read it. Just saying.
