Hey everyone!

Section 1 of THE TIME IN BETWEEN, 1846-1931 is now up.  THE TIME IN BETWEEN, 1846-1931 revisits the Blake and Livingston families and we might even see what actually became of Nicolae and Teresa.

Hope you guys continue to enjoy the installments of the first Bloodlines book.  I do have a few permanent titles in mind for the series.  Just need to deci…

CHAPTER 8
Night fell once again on the path that Nicolae and Teresa walked. They had gone the entire day barely saying a word to one another.The extent of the conversation between them had been Nicolae letting Teresa know if or when they were stopping and then asking her if she needed something to eat.At dusk, they settled at the edge of another field near the woods where Nicolae built a fire for Teresa in silence.Teresa had her back turned to him when Nicolae was finished building the fire. “I’m going down to the river for a few minutes,” she heard him say, “Do you need anything?” Teresa remained seated with her back to Nicolae and shook her head.There was more silence between them before Nicolae spoke again. “Do you still have the dagger I gave you?” Teresa nodded, feeling Nicolae’s eye…
