Greylands, Part 3: The Ripples

Maverick shut the door to the shop and leaned back with a grin. That poor girl had no idea what she’d just agreed to. Pops was a kind soul – somewhere under all his gruffness – and hopefully Damsel would get a chance to see it before she stabbed him with a lockpick. Which he wouldn’t put it past her to do.

He laughed and pushed away from the door, heading away from Pop’s shop.

By the grim expression on Firefly’s face earlier he thought it best to avoid her, so he turned away from the tent city and back towards the library. Jack was in no mood to be played with, either – Fletch had seen to that, the bastard. The smirk disappeared from Maverick’s face, replaced by a scowl. Jack had warned him to watch out for the worm, but had given no reason. Not that he really needed an excuse to stay away from Fletch, but he was curious. What was he planning? Maverick had seen his interest in Damsel – like a cat with its sights set on a mouse. Maybe he’d ask Mosh to keep an eye on the girl. Couldn’t hurt.

Greylands: Firefly

by Chelsea Miller

The ever constant rain helped Firefly wash the seed from her dirty blonde hair. She shuddered as she passed through the silver gates of one of the mansions in the Golden Tracks.

Day of Demons is Here!

Please be advised: no demon names were spoken allowed throughout the course of this anthology.

I never thought Friday the 13th would end up being such an important day for me, but there you go. I'm officially a published author. It's only my great life dream come true. I want to share it. I want you to know about it, and read it, and keep me motivated to try me hand a getting my novel published ;)

How can you do this, you might wonder? Go to The Raven's Quill to read more and share the word!

Q&A and Writing Samples!

Hi everyone! Lots of exciting stuff going on at the Raven's Quill.

Today we have an interview with T. James about his new novella "My Mirror Self, and I". "Intimate and real, this is a story about finding courage in the face of adversity. Cassie is a young woman struggling to keep herself, and everything else, from falling apart as she tries to deal with breast cancer and depression. Can she find the strength she needs to rescue her marriage and reclaim her life?"

Also new: two pieces of flash fiction, "Panther" - the winner of the March Flash Fiction on Devin's forum, and "Stolen" - a random piece inspired by a random prompt.

...Out with the Old

A very large part of me is sad to say this, but I feel as though I've got the most I could out of this particular site. As of today all posts/wordy babble/novel developments can be found at (that's right, it's all mine). I hope you'll all follow me over there! For some motivation, you'll find Greylands Part 2: The Shadows waiting for you.
