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.

Trying Something New

When I noticed that it doesn't cost anything to publish a book with Lulu, I thought I might have something that I'm willing to part with for that price. I certainly don't want to publish my novel that way; I'd much rather hold out for an agent (although this might take as long as ten years or more). But I have an old novelette that I'm not as concerned about - partly because it really isn't my genre - and I don't plan to try very hard to get it published through traditional venues. So I thought, "Why not?" Who knows, maybe I'll make a few dollars from it . . .

I'm setting it up now for upload. When it's done, I'll post an update.

Good luck with your Lulu venture. I notice that Absolute Write has some good threads in their Self Publishing forum on Lulu. The big thing seems to be edit, edit, edit!

Yes, extremely important, that . . .

Thank you, Dawn!
