Off the Rig!

So back home off the rig!

Was sooo no the home coming I was expecting.

I live in Houston. We had some bad rains about four weeks ago, you probably saw the news on the flooding. Well I thought I avoided any issues. Yeah not so much. I discovered that my closet got flooded with water seeping in from the backyard during the heavy rains. So yeah, I have no shoes left, anything that was on the floor was a wet moldy mess, so I lost quiet a lot of stuff, no not fun! LOL

Four weeks of the closet being closed and Houston heat gave me a wet moldy mess to come home to, a mess I am now trying to clear up. Of course I doubt my insurance will cover it because it was seepage from a backed up drain and that counts as a flood to Allstate. Pah! So got to replace the carpet and the four foot of plaster boarding all the way through to the living room and into the bedroom. Let at least it again not make it into the bedroom!

Anyway! I got the 1st round edit of Book One: Greed’s Charity back, and when I am not working on the closet I am working on the changes to Book One!!! Got lots of work to do of course, always is the first time a book comes back so I will be busy for the next few weeks going back and forth with my great editor Ellen! Next week I am visiting with my book cover artist and we are going to nail down the cover art for the series!

I’m sooo excited!

The website content is almost finished. A day in the life of… Greed will be up soon! I hope you will all enjoy it!red sin

Greed’s Charity – Excerpt

Greed - Mammon

Chapter One

“Greed!” The voice dripped with rage, smothering all who heard in a blanket of terror. It ripped through the darkness, making lower demons cower in fear for their continued existence. When the Lord of the Underworld roared your name, you hid or welcomed oblivion.

Seven flames wavered in the darkness, sparking and flickering in the black. Not a single one created light around it, yet each blazed with a blinding, horrifying glory. A low rumble began in the chamber; a flame of azure blue transformed into the shape of a man. His breathing was deep and fast, sweat covering his muscled chest, his eyes mirrored the blue of the fire now sinking into his flesh. He turned that gaze on a flame of emerald green. The roar that left him contained pure rage and unending fury. He tackled the sparkling green flame, ripping from it another male form.

“Greed, you bastard! You pissed him off. Again!” Satanus, Sin of Wrath began to beat the male to the floor, fists delivering one crushing blow after another. His rage made the very air around him shimmer with pulsing heat.

Behind him, three other flames of blood red, flickering silver, and glowing orange coalesced into human form. Eyes glowing, matching the fire that slowly seethed and retreated under their flesh. One flame of undulating gold expanded into a glowing mist and hovered in the corner. They all watched the Sins of Wrath and Greed fighting on the chamber floor.

Greed let out a feral growl. Tired of being pummeled he rolled, pinning Satanus below him, delivering harsh blows of his own. Two pairs of arms grabbed him, pulling him off, another moving to stand between the two raging demons.

“Lucifer! Unless you want to be my next target, get the fuck out of my way!” Waves of fury beat against flesh as Satanus stood, locking his murderous gaze upon his brother, Mammon, the Sin of Greed.

Lucifer, Sin of Pride turned his blood-red eyes on Satanus, turning to fully face him. His long, white-blond hair laid pin straight over his shoulders, perfectly pristine, as the two squared off.

“Father has summoned us. More to the point, he has summoned Mammon. So, shall we continue to fight like beasts, or shall we answer his call?” As the leader of the Seven Deadly Sins, he spoke with utter confidence in every word that flowed from his mouth.

Satanus glared at his leader. Behind him, Mammon gave a half smile and a wave, emerald eyes mocking him. Roaring, Satanus charged toward him. Lucifer lifted his fist and stuck with pinpoint accuracy, crushing his brother’s windpipe in a strike so fast, no mortal would have seen. Blue eyes went wide with pain and Satanus fell to his knees coughing, covering his throat as he tried, unsuccessfully, to take in air.

“Mammon, do you want to be next?” Lucifer slowly turned his red gaze to Mammon. The look he gave his youngest sibling said he was going to get a fist to the throat as well in a second.

Mammon knew better than to cross Lucifer and dropped his eyes to the floor. At his side, Beelzebub, Sin of Envy, and Belphegor, Sin of Gluttony, released his arms and took a step back. One flame remained flickering in the room. Sloth snorted in dismissal of his leader’s words. Red eyes turned on the remaining flicker of writhing black.

“Abbadon, get your ass out here, or I will inform Father why you are absent.” The dark flame audibly sighed and began to form, arms and legs wreathed in liquid darkness. His eyes, grey like pounded steel, glowed with inner annoyance. His skin was as black as shadow and appeared to be cut from obsidian.

“Of course you would, Lucifer, such a good little pet, let’s all do what Daddy says. Maybe he will give you a pat on the head for being such a dutiful son.” Abbadon leaned against the wall watching the blood-red flames flickering in Lucifer’s eyes. He crossed his arms, observing his leaders attempt to control his temper.

Mammon let out a bark of laughter at the whole scene. As the youngest, he was more inclined to push the boundaries. His laugh earned him a smack to the back of the head. Rubbing the spot, he scowled at Beelzebub, whose silver eyes were almost haunting to behold. They swirled and moved like molten metal. It was exceedingly eerie at times.

“Don’t push it, Mammon. You have already pissed off Father. So, let us go and see if we can save your ass from one hundred years in the Pit.”

“Geez Ze,” Mammon glared at him.

Ze glared right back before he turned and walked from the chamber. He was built hard and lean, like a swimmer, nothing but pure muscle. With a thought, clothing wrapped around his form—clearly he wasn’t going to attract the ire of their father for being late or naked.

Satanus snarled at Mammon as he scrambled to his feet. Rubbing his sore but rapidly-healing throat, he left the chamber, followed by Belphegor. Lucifer turned his ruby gaze back to Abbadon and Mammon. His eyes settled on the shimmering, iridescent golden mist undulating in the corner.

Asmodeus, the Sin of Lust, was a formless entity. He sighed and began to coalesce, becoming a solid figure forming from the swirling mist. The sparkling golden haze sank under the new skin of a male who did not look much different from Lucifer. Well, Asmodeus did need someone to imprint from if he was going to take on a human form. Lucifer growled and shook his head at his brother’s mimicry. Asmodeus just grinned and ran his newly formed hand through his own slightly darker blond hair, daring his leader to say something.

“You three will be the death of me. Move.” Lucifer’s voice was tight with exasperation. If Mammon didn’t know any better, he would have mistaken Lucifer’s tone for concern. He hung back and watched Lucifer exit the chamber, a sudden fear biting at him. He pushed it away quickly; showing fear to Hades was a death sentence. Abbadon pushed off the wall, smacking Mammon upside the head.

“Your antics will get us all thrown in the Pit, Bro.” Mammon flinched and rubbed his head again. Abbadon moved towards the door, an unfamiliar feeling of worry for the others hit him square in the chest. Abbadon was the only one close in age to himself. He would like to have said the rest could go to hell, but they were already in hell.

 

The First Amazing Post!

So I considered posting this to a fan fair and ticker-tape parade, with a band and fireworks. All I could afford was a party popper. So yay!

Welcome to the first post on the blog of me! The author of the up and coming Seven Deadly Sins Series. Here you will find info on my lovely self, the boys I hope you will come to love as much as I do. News on the series, little tidbits of info.

A day in the life of…. And soon to come, members only information!

I hope, if you have come this far because you are intrigued, interested, inspired… that’s a lot of I words… I aim to fascinate and captivate you. Draw you into a world of magic and myth, where the truth is not always as it seemed and those beings that have eternally been painted as evil in our world, are not necessarily as dark as they seem. I am going to take you to a place, where the lines between light and dark are far more blurred and the boarders between the worlds of dreams and reality are but a mirrored doorway into the mind.

This is the World of the Seven Sins. A world where Gods walk among us like every day people. Where those we believe protect us are not necessarily looking out for our best interests. A world where Sin is a sickness that spreads from soul to soul, if no one stops it the virus infects all it touches with darkness. The carrier becomes a Blight, a scourge upon the earth and from that one soul, great pain and suffering can occur.

The fall of Rome, The great fire of London, The World Wars, The Boston Riots, The French Revolution. All caused when one soul became so corrupted it infected others and spread like the plague. This is where out wayward heroes come in, though they would never call themselves heroes. Wait, Abbadon might, he would even wear the cape and the tight pants, yeah he totally would.

They are the demons who balance Sin, they hunt those mortals that have become corrupted, taking their souls into themselves so that they may be cleansed. Sending those souls on to their father Hades for judgment, it is he who decides if that soul deserves a second chance at life or if it will wander the shores of the river Styx for all eternity.

So ready to let a bit of Sin into your life?
