Asphodel YA mythology novel.

Tuesday, November 23, 2010
As many of you know, I have been working dilligently on re-writing my YA mythology novel, Asphodel. I have rewritten it from a completely different angle. I have pasted a teaser for you below!

A shrill, deafening, cry escaped from my lips. My mother burst through the door
as I bolted upright in my bed. Hysteria washed over me. I gasped out, panting, trying to steady my breathing. My mother swept me up into an embrace, whispering comforting words into my ear. “Hush darling, it’s alright.” I let out a long ragged breath, while trying to suck back the tears. Beads of sweat dribbled down my forehead as every limb attached to me began to convulse.

My mother squeezed me tighter, controlling my shaking body. “Calm down
sweetheart,” she said, consoling me. “ It was only a dream.” This wasn’t a dream though. It was a voice. A voice that had been coming to me for the last eighteen years for as long as I could remember.
