Coven of the Worm

Book One: Estranged Earth

Linda Caldwell attends Putty Hill Senior High with her friends Jane and Candy, where she meets and falls in love with an intriguing young man named David Yeng-Chi.

David seems perfect for her, but he has a dark secret. His father Hamaki had trained him to use a deadly mix of martial arts and magic in the service of his god—Chai'Huon Ju, the Defiler. David is a descendent of the Worm Clan of a long forgotten prehistoric nation called Hunjan. There were other gods and different beliefs among these people, but the Worm Clan had believed in Chai'Huon Ju's legacy of evil.

As the relationship between David and Linda grows, Linda begins to have prophetic dreams warning her to stay away from him. The visions are so insistent and frightening that she surrenders to them and breaks up with David. Enraged, David resolves to have revenge by conjuring his god to Earth.

Linda has a secret too, however—one that might help to save her soul from the Defiler. Prophecy was merely the first of her abilities to develop and—she soon discovers—there were more powers to come.

Book Two: Mystic Moon (in progress)

Eric is the son of David Yeng-Chi, who had unleashed Pure Intensity and wreaked havoc on a Maryland town in 1995—all in the name of revenge. When Eric discovers his true identity, he sets out to fulfill his destiny, which is to assemble a Coven and use it to release his evil god on Earth.

Daniel is an Avatar of the gods, and only he knows how to find the others like him. It is his destiny to gather the Avatars and lead them to battle against the Defiler before he can wage war on Heaven. Together with Dawn Lu, Linda Levinston, and FBI agent Carl Timmers, Daniel searches for Eric and his coven—hoping to find them before they can succeed with their diabolical plans.

Ego Alert!

Now I definitely feel like I'm glowing with the ego boost delivered by Howard von Darkmoor on his blog. I met him over at SFReader Forums recently, where he expressed an eagerness to see Tower of Light when it's ready, and he added a link to Avatar Lore from his blog.

I never expected to see a post about von Darkmoor's thoughts on Avatar Lore & Tower of Light when I checked in again, and boy was I surprised.

Such a sweeping endorsement for a rookie like me. Thanks again, Howard, and many blessings upon you for this gesture of solidarity. I promise not to let it go to my head...

(What's that? Of course I'm the best fantasy writer that ever lived... No I am not full of myself...)

It's such a buzz seeing another blogger say something nice about you and your work, isn't it. I wonder if people realise just how uplifting it can be for the recipient. Bless there little cotton socks! It's all part of 'paying it forward'.

Yes, it is, I must admit. Thanks, Dawn!
