THE CONCLUSION OF "DESCENT" (BOOK 1) *UNEDITED FIRST DRAFT

And we are at the finish line. Here is the conclusion: Chapter 53 through the Epilogue. :) If you are just catching up, see the  CHAPTERS section  or scroll to previous posts (in case I don't update the CHAPTERS section right away) to read the Prologue-Chapter 52 before proceeding I've been MIA online in recent days as I try to finish this book's most recent draft and an editing job I'm doing for someone else. BUT here are the final chapters of "Descent."  These chapters are more detailed in the most recent drafts of the book, but this does give you an idea of how the book will go down at the end. I will note, though, that I did write these in one sitting as I was trying to "just finish the first draft", and by the time I got to the Epilogue, my brain was FRIED. So, if the Epilogue makes no sense, I apologize. BUT like I said, this was the first draft...complete with errors and it gives you an idea of the writing process and what most roug

Yep, that's right! We now have official titles for the series proper along with the first three titles in the series. The title of the series is Birthrite (and yes, the spelling of 'rite' is deliberate). It is actually a title that has been at the forefront of my brain when I was trying to come up with a title but resisted using it because I was trying to come up with something really cool-sounding ala Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" series. But the more I thought about it, the more the Birthrite title seemed to belong. Almost as though the series found its own title. So with that said, I'm happy to not only bring you a series title but also titles for the first three installments. Without further ado, here they are: BIRTHRITE series: Book #1- Descent Book #1.5 (the Jimmy and Linda novella/short)- Sacred Atonement Book #2- Kindred Obviously what you are reading on this blog is the first draft of what is now called "Descent" (you have n

PART 2, THE FIRST EVIL, 1931-1933: Chapter 52 (UNEDITED FIRST DRAFT)

Here is Chapter 52 :) If you are just catching up, see the  CHAPTERS section  or scroll to previous posts (in case I don't update the CHAPTERS section right away) to read the Prologue-Chapter 50 before proceeding. Also, check out some further character development in some excerpts from the second draft in the  SAMPLES section.   CHAPTER 52 Matthew looked from the number 410 on the door and then back out the window. Night had fallen outside. He turned back to see that James Livingston had disappeared and he was now alone in the dark, empty room. The air had shifted back to what was Plains.  I’m back… Matthew thought. From somewhere in the distance, he heard his name being called. Tahatan and Father Louis were nearby. He began to answer back when he was hit by a familiarity. Liz! She was close by. He could feel it.  Why is she here? I have to find her! Matthew headed to the doorway and ran into a chair on the way out. “Son of a bitch!” Matthew yelled,
