Monsters? Perish the thought. Logical magic rocks!


Under this image is the first three paragraphs on a novel in the process of being edited by me right now. The name of the book is The Shade Riders and Nocturnal Ned. The  woman character in the scene above is Leandra Contrast who is from New Zealand and now living in the U.S.A. She is Nova's mentor and has a special blood within herself that gives her magical powers and abilities. She also moonlights as a private investigator.

Note: Magick refers to anything like ESP, telekinesis, telepathy, or the ilk below in the story.
