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.

Tower of Light Update

Submissions are finally coming in for Tower of Light Magazine. Surprisingly, the first couple of stories I've read so far are rather good. The first issue will hopefully be ready to come out sometime in June at this rate. Of course, I'd like to see more before I decide what's going in, so I might still hold off until July. We'll see . . .

Good luck with your Tower of Light
Magazine, Michael. I'm sure you'll get some real crackers for it.

Hi Michael,
Just thought I'd stop by and say hi. 'Fraid I don't know much about the world of fantasy (other than fantasies of humungous hot fudge sundaes and others too lurid to go into here) but this looks like a very cool site. I love your take on laundry and chores and appreciated you coming over to my site. Hope to see you again!

I was a big fan of fantasy, science fiction, and the like when I was young. I still am, but I just haven't had the time to sit down and lose myself in it.

Oh,well. Good site btw.
I hope to come by again soon.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments, and for visiting my blog! I must say, Crabby, that the humongous hot fudge sundae is is much too tempting to think about.

I hope you find the time again soon, Leah. Maybe you can check out Tower of Light when the first issue is ready.


(Shucks, I had to redo the post completely. There doesn't seem to be an edit function for this. Oh, well . . .)

Humungous hot fudge sundaes! Where! Where!
