Excerpt: 
“It’s not working,” David said. “Why isn’t it working?”
“You don’t have much time. If the corrosion reaches her chest, she’s going to die,” Nyx said.
“I’m going to die?” I mumbled.
I always thought I would be afraid of dying. I carried that fear with me since I was twelve, after looking inside that coffin at my dad’s stiff, breathless body. But now that it was my turn, I was ready. This was the destiny that was written for me.
“I can’t do it, Mother. I have nothing to forgive her for,” David said.
If I was going to die, I needed to tell David something I hadn’t had the courage to tell him before.
I glanced at my arm. The decomposition was at my elbow and the tingling had crept up near my shoulder. I didn’t have time to waste.
“David,” I said, and he looked at me. “I’m sorry I hurt you. I needed you to know...to hear it.”
I could feel the tingling a few inches past my shoulder. Nyx pulled my shirt at the neckline exposing my collarbone and part of my shoulder.
“I love you,” I said. “I always have.”
“I’m so sorry I did this to you,” David whispered stroking my forehead.
I could no longer feel my arm, my shoulder and part of my chest. And then I felt it—a searing pain in the middle of my chest. I writhed in anguish, screaming at the top of my lungs. My whole body jerked, and then there was darkness. Everything was silent, including my heart.

A soft light surrounded me, cradling me in a tranquility I had never known existed. I struggled for a last breath, but it was too late. The end was here. 

Guest Post: 
Hello everyone! Thank you for stopping by on today’s tour stop for my book Creatura (Book 1). Today, I thought I’d share one of my secondary characters’ backstories. For this I’ve chosen Galilea, one of my favorite characters in The Creatura Series. She’s first seen in book two of the series, Fruit of Misfortune. But she quickly became a favorite of mine. Her zaniness and offbeat character—and unfiltered thoughts—makes her one of the more amusing and fun characters for me to write. But Galilea wasn’t always as wild as she is in Fruit of Misfortune. She was, like we all start off being, young and finding her true self in her early years. When Galilea is introduced in the story, she’s already lived several millennia and knows she’s destined to be a big part of something, though she has no idea what exactly that something is. So how did she end up crossing paths with the main character, Isis Martin, in the series? Here’s a little insight to Galilea’s past. I hope you enjoy it.

Dearest Mother,

It’s been eight months since I left home without a proper goodbye. It was wrong of me to leave so suddenly, but this is the way of the Runes; although, sometimes, I’m not certain it was the smartest thing to do. I was sought out—offered the opportunity to be special. I jumped at the thought of being something other than just another deity, scratching my head and wondering when someone would take notice of my abilities. But I was afraid to tell anyone about my visions. You didn’t know I wasn’t like everyone else, Mother. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you.
                                                                                                                                                      
Enoch and Uno—my mentors—are nice enough. They’ve given me my own room in their ancient, tiny home. The walls are made of stone and wooden beams that smell of the cedar and oak trees they’re cut from. My belly is always full and my bed is always warm. I can’t really complain, except for the fact that they’re strict… and boring.

Enoch, the younger of the two wise men, has no sense of humor. “Stop with your tomfoolery, girl,” he tells me. “You must focus on your lessons.” Perhaps I would learn faster if they talked less about our precursors and showed me how to control the Stones, instead of letting the Stones control me.

My training revolves around the birth of a girl who I’ll have to protect. Initially, I assumed I’d be a vigilante, but it seems I’ve signed on to be a babysitter. To say that I’m disappointed is an understatement. Who wants to wipe baby butts, when you can change the course of history with the type of visions I have? Not me. However, Uno—the elder one—has assured me that being a nanny isn’t my purpose. I have no choice but to trust him.

Mother, I miss you… all of you. I wish I could come home. But under the oath I’ve taken, I can no longer be a part of society until my training is finalized. And until the girl’s safety is assured, I won’t be able to see you or father or my sisters. Uno says this may take hundreds of years… or thousands. Rest assured, I’ll come home, and when I do, I’ll tell you about all the nights I’ve cried myself to sleep, knowing your worry for me is eternal, like my guilt.

You’ll never receive this letter, Mother. But know that in my heart I’ll always be waiting for the day that I come home to you.


Your Little Black Sheep,

Galilea
