Who’s been waiting for Book 2?

“Chapter 1

Crimson light painted the steep forest ravine. Even my copper curls escaping from a tight black cap appeared the same bloody hue as the sliver of red moon. The eerie light made it harder to fasten my eyes on details. I knew the camp of Bromin’s soldiers was ahead of me, but only because I had successfully passed through the energy barrier. I didn’t have much time before the blue moon rose exposing my presence in the revealing crisp light. I crept from shadow to shadow until finally a row of square tents came into view.

Someone snorted and I paused beside a patch of bramble. The rattle of a man’s snores resumed as did my breathing. I slipped past the thorny branches and around the slumbering outpost. I kept to the thicker stretch of trees along the edges of the deep gorge. The sides were steep enough to keep average intruders out or even to topple them in. I was not an average intruder though. The cache of weapons was on the far side of the encampment next to the back cliff wall. What I needed had to be there.

Fingering the straps of my leather pack, my mind drifted to how uncanny my life had become. Only a year before I had been a human on Earth. Now I was a GearMaker in a land of living robots and mechanically inclined people who in ancient times gave life to those robots.

The light, still tricking my eyes, fell on a large cube. It was shining red though I suspected in normal light it was the silver sheen of metal. Trees hugged the warehouse masking it’s massive size. A guard stood outside the double doors, a laser gun clasped firmly in front of him. His heavy brows gave him a menacing look.

I grinned.”

It’s been Awhile!

There are reasons it’s been awhile. The biggest one is that I was not able to tell if anyone was reading my posts. According to my stats only spam bots were responding and viewing anything. I’m changing the purpose of this blog. I’m not just a writer. I’m not just a puppet artist. I’m not only one thing at a time. I’m me all the time in all my variety of characteristics and passions. This is my everything blog now. I may talk about puppets. I may talk about books. I may talk about what is like to raise special need kids. I may even talk about what is like to live with invisible disabilities. I want to encourage conversations that are safe, supportive and interesting. I am autodidactic. This means I’m always learning, always seeking knowledge. I am always sharing what I learn, too.

So! Here I am in all my ME! Shannon Reagan, the puppet building, modern film learning, book writing, EDS fighting, mother of seven with all my flaws and amazing stuff, too!IMG_9118
