Cover Reveal: Secret’s End

Today we are delighted to share with you the cover art for Stonehenge Circle writer K. D. Blakely’s next book, Secret’s End.  This is the final book in her five book series, The Chimera Chronicles.

First the synopsis…

What happens when Secrets End?

Things are going from bad to worse.

Someone needs to make a record of what’s happening, and I guess that’s me, Katherine Alice Taylor. This journal could be vital, because it feels like something is trying to stop me and my friends.

The magical world of Chimera is being ripped apart. Wild magic, caused by two conflicting spells, is destroying that realm. And now, it’s leaking into our world.

The blue lightning storms and corrosive fogs in Santa Ramona are escalating, and we have to act soon. No matter how dangerous it gets.

I don’t really expect anyone else to read this. Not if I have anything to say about it. But I need to write it down. Just in case something goes wrong.

If the five of us fail, someone else will have to set things right. Too much depends on it.

 

And now that you have an idea of the book, scroll on down for the cover reveal…

Stonehenge Story Starts: You Can (?) Go Home Again (Prompt)

Welcome to Stonehenge Story Starts, a biweekly writing prompt and story sharing opportunity.  Every other Sunday, we post a writing prompt: an opening line, a concept, a plot hook, maybe an image.  Two weeks later on Saturday, we’ll post again with the writing the prompt inspired.

This week’s prompt is: Write a story about revisiting one’s childhood home.

Our writers will be writing for the prompts, but anyone is welcome to participate!  Just come by on Sunday to see the week’s prompt, write during the week, and send any writing you’d like to share to StonehengeCircleWriters@gmail.com by the following Friday at 8 pm.  On Saturday we’ll post participants’ writing (with credit to the author, of course).

Write as much or as little as you choose: a paragraph, a flash fiction piece (less than 1,000 words) or a short story.  (Note, for long writing, we may choose to post only a selection.)  You are encouraged to be as creative as possible with the writing prompts.  Try to do something unexpected, or explore a particular genre like science fiction or historical fiction.  Take the prompt literally, or decide it’s a metaphor.  Your only limit is your own imagination.

Happy writing!

 

Stonehenge Story Starts: Mirror, Mirror (Results)

We hope you’re enjoying your Saturday!

This week’s prompt was:

Write a story about a magic mirror—what it can do, how it’s used, and who it’s used by (Prompt courtesy of @writingprompts)

We have just one story today: Cheryl Mahoney gave us a glimpse of a moment between two characters in her upcoming novel.

*****

            “Rose?  Rose, I know you can hear me.”

Rose didn’t lift her head from her pillow.  “Go away.”

“Don’t you think it might be helpful to talk to me?”

That didn’t even merit a response.

“I’m sorry about Terrence.”

Rose pushed herself up to sit on the bed then, to glare at the woman looking out of the mirror on her wall.  “Don’t talk about him.  Don’t even say his name.  And you know you’re not sorry.”
