Threat of the Fire Demon - Chapter 2

Saul couldn’t keep up with the long running strides of Charles as he sprinted toward Raven’s mansion. A two legged cat was not enough, so he fell to all fours and raced to catch up as he watched the elf-man’s aurora shift from its usual cool white to gold then on into amber. By the time he caught up with Charles the man was radiating strong amber with spikes of red shooting out from his extremities. Saul surged ahead and threw himself in front of his friend, blocking his way. If he had been a smaller cat Charles would have run him over.

“Stop!” he hollered and rose up to place a paw on Charles’ chest. “If you meet Raven like this you’ll kill each other and it will mean the end of The Realms.”

Raven was everything dark and evil in The Realms. Charles was the light and good. As it stood now, they kept The Realms in balance. Even though the elf-man had no hand in ruling, he was the only one Raven feared. Charles’ presence kept the innocent safe.

Threat of the Fire Demon - Chapter 1

Greetings my fine reading friends. Today we start a new paranormal story. Let me take you back to The Realms where creatures humans think are paranormal, mythical or fanciful actually live.

Threat of the Fire Demon

Charles squatted down beside the tomato sprout. The half dozen bushes he planted the month before were struggling. With only four to five hours of light per day, they just didn’t get enough sun here in The Realms. Nothing got enough sun to grow here.

He reached out and lifted a pale green, curled leaf. “You poor thing,” he said.

“Humans and Elves, the only beings crazy enough to talk to plants,” Saul tsked from behind him.

“Morning, Saul,” Charles said.

“Morning.” The huge cat-man knelt down on one knee beside his friend. “Think it does any good? Talking to them, I mean.”

Yakov Hightower and the Glitter of a Pirate's Booty

My friend, Cheri Matthynessen, an author in her own right, has a wonderful little contest running on her blog Challenge the Writer. Readers are challenged to give Cheri a (1) Character Type (2) Specific Place (3) Situation and (4) A Random Item.

I love this kind of thing to get the old creative juices moving. I immediately challenged her with:
(1) A hunchback prince with a gift for gab
(2) The imaginary land of Sand & Stone
(3) A torturous climb
(4) A sentient mute snake

I think she felt the pressure so she turned right around and shot one of her own personal challenges to me:

The Birth of a Norwich Dragon

A Short Story in One Post for Your Reading Enjoyment...

My name is Raptorsfire.

I am here to tell you there is still ‘Magic’ in the mundane world of humans.

This is my story. It is not long, but it is my life thus far. And… an exciting life it has been.

The first thing I remember is the warmth and security I can only attribute to being in my egg. My mother’s hot breath must have kept it at just the right temperature for me to develop and grow within its confines.

If you'd like to get a heads-up on my latest book releases, sales, and freebies, make sure to sign up for my newsletter! And you don't have to worry about getting a bunch of junk - I only send it out when I really have something you might want to hear about.
