Dream Killer

Little Hearts Orphanage has always been a safe haven for ‘special’ individuals. Azura, the headmistress, has gone to great lengths to ensure the resident’s true abilities remain secret from those who would exploit them. Her mantra: The secret must be protected at all costs.
That’s where Marlena comes in. Raised in the orphanage, under Azura’s wing, she has committed herself and her ‘gifts’ to Azura’s service – and to wiping out those who seek to expose Marlena and the others for what they truly are

My Review                                                                                                                                                                           A great short story that starts and ends with action.
Join Marlena, as her adventure just begins.





Where can we find Heather?

1. What is your plan for this series?
It’s looking to be a four or five part series, based on where it’s going in the end.
2. Should we remember all of the characters in book 1?
Yes. and there will be more introduced but mainly, we’ll be following Marlena.
3. What made you decide to write short stories?
Originally, I wrote it to submit to online magz so I could get published and start building my platform and writer credentials. And then I realized how fun they were and how fast I could write them. It’s like TV episodes to me.
4. what are the underlying ideas behind this series.
The story idea was orgininally (loosely) based on a cross between Underworld (I’d just watched the movie like two days before I wrote this) and X-men.
5. when will book 2 be out?
 Sometime in April. Check my website for more info.

I have started working on a few WIP’s again 🙂 Now I am just looking for a few people to read over my shoulder 🙂

Ok, so I sent the Intro out last night to have someone read and this is the responce I got, “A trio of siblings with different gifts set in a world different from ours works for me.”

I kicked out about 20 book pages last night, and I’m looking for a BETA. I am willing to trade, or review, authors pages, or anything else here on my blog 🙂 Just keep in mind it is a WIP and I plan to have it set as a short story 😀

Hi! This blog is my second blog and there are a few different ideas I have for it.  I plan to host on both blogs, it is up to the author as to which they want. Another idea I have is for WIP, if you plan to end your WIP in publishing maybe you should post about it here, just the overview. Maybe you can start getting fans before its out!

My blogs are dedicated to the authors so I am always game to make new posts based on what  you would think would help.  Just leave me an email, a comment, or an IM.

I plan to make new posts on words you should know, and overly used words soon.
