'Waiting for Rebirth' Snippet

I've already done my #Rainbow Snippet for the day, but I wanted this blog to get a little attention. Plus, share a little of what I've been working on, while promoting 'Fairest' and 'A Symposium in Space' after their publication. This is from 'Waiting for Rebirth', a short story which takes place before my novel, 'Stealing Myself From Shadows'. It tells the tale of how Christopher first finds himself a human being, after Damian has pulled him out of the shadows.

I flinched. I wondered if traces of whomever I’d devoured lingered on my skin, or clung to my lips. Now, I had a human form, as well as a human awareness of what I’d done as a shadow. 

Gabrielle regarded me without judgment, although a hint of steel glinted in the darkness of her pupils. I wondered what she’d done to others of my kind she’d caught feeding in the Navel. 

A shudder ran through my slight frame, bringing further awareness of how small and weak I was in in the real world. 


  1. Nice! I like the names you create. Well done.

  2. Thank you! This particular project is very dear to my heart, although I keep getting distracted from it! (rueful grin)
