IT’S ALIVE

 

 

 

Puppet Master 2 (1991)

 

What do I see 

as I wake from sleep?

A puppet watching me.

 

It creaks.

It groans.

Its head spins.

 

It can’t be real.

It’s a wooden puppet.

No one pulls its strings.

 

It speaks

in a deep voice.

It can’t be alive.

 

It says,

“Time to play.”

I run to the door.

 

It can’t be.

It stands before me,

taller than me.

 

 

It can’t be.

But it is.

It’s alive.

FLY FREE

 

 

In the dark, we fly free.

We’re not afraid to fall.

Above mountains and sea,

Goodbye to one and all.

Where will we land?

We do not care.

Could be the sand

or a hunter’s snare.

 

FLUSH OF PINK

… the inner gauge is rising to its peak …

 

Anger raises its head

as I thrash in my bed.

The hot flush of pink is flowing.

To my brow, it isn’t slowing.

 

I remember his aqua eyes

as he retold his many lies.

I watched the grim line of his frown

as he turned my world upside down.

 

I won’t let him ruin my night.

I need him out of my sight.

No more meetings in the dark

beneath the elm in the park.

 

No more whispers as we walk.

I know the town loves to talk.

I say goodbye to my fickle love

as the moon bows its head above.

OF THE NIGHT

 

His hand reaches for me.

He wants me for The Dead.

I won’t yield to his call.

He wants me in his bed.

 

I’m surrounded by his kind.

Their cries echo in the night.

He swoops closer from the sky.

Oh, what a beautiful sight.

 

He’s a creature of the night.

I’m crazy to want him so.

I can’t resist his sad face.

He is not a friend but a foe.

My book, The Dead Game, falls into this creepy category. With vampires, human vampires, and plenty of gore, it will take you to the dark side.

Be sure and visit my virtual booth at the B2B CONVENTION ON GOODREADS. I will be awarding books for playing my games. And if you’ve read The Dead Game, you already know that The Dead love their fun and games–preferably at night.

BLOG HOP BOOK INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

 

1- Describe your main character in one or two sentences.

 

Linda wants a peaceful life for herself and her friends. She wants happiness above all else and sometimes tries too hard to achieve it.

 

2- Which one word would you use to describe your antagonist? Now, which word would your antagonist use to describe him or herself?

 

Todd is decisive. He would call himself a leader. He is a born leader.

 

3- What’s the worst thing your main character has done?

 

Linda agrees to go along with Shana’s plan of confronting Wolf in his home without backup.

 

4- What is the most prized possession of your antagonist? And why?

 

Linda loves her books. They allow her to escape from reality.

 

5- What is the one part of your book that you, as the author, like best?

 

I like all of it since I wrote it. If I were to pick one scene, it would be the party in the glass house. As snow falls outside, the guests dance around the lifelike ice sculptures of people.

 

After the questions, you will do a one paragraph reading of a beginning of a chapter (any chapter, author’s choice). Remember no graphic sex or violence.

 

The next morning, Louise arrived early at her store. As soon as she stepped through the doorway, she sensed that something was wrong: the air was frigid, and the lights wouldn’t turn on. From the corner of her eye, she noticed a shadow pass by her. She was terrified that the creeping shadows were now stalking her inside and in the daylight.

 

Turning to leave the store, she grabbed the door handle but found that it wouldn’t budge in either direction. Staring through the door’s plate glass window, she saw that the town was deserted. All the other stores along Main Street were still closed, except for the sheriff’s office, which was too far away to be of any help. She was all alone with no one around to save her. If she cried out for help, no one could hear her. She felt panic beginning to overwhelm her.

 

She couldn’t breathe; it felt like all the oxygen in the room had been sucked out. Panicking, she gasped for air, but there didn’t seem to be any left in the locked store.

My main antagonist is Ecrin. Her villainous path is a bit ambiguous. She’s good and she’s bad…but the why remains to be revealed. Mostly, she’s misunderstood and she’s acting out of desperation. I modeled her appearance after Tilda Swinton’s character in The Only Lovers Left Alive.

SUNSHINE FOR ME

Source:

 

 

A dark and gloomy day.

I’m tempted to say, “Hey,

I’m here on vacation, you see,

I only want sunshine for me.”

 

The clouds are moving past.

They’re moving kind of fast.

Maybe the sun has listened to me.

A great day it will finally be.
