After Darkness Rises

This tale was expanded, and it’s now the first short story of my Blooming Howls collection. The latter is available for purchase at Amazon.

  2. Aww! I love this! Full of heart and excitement and things about to happen. Mostly bad, bad things, but there's no tale without them. As I once told a lawyer (don't ask) stories are made when bad things happen to good people.

    1. It all started with a bit of Emma (http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/2014/07/fearless.html). And I suspect the tale is heading this way (http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/p/chronicles-of-murdered-darling.html). There will be more... *teehee*

    1. If you haven't read The Thirteenth Tale, you should give it a go. It's a great read; one of my favorites.

      So glad you like the girls!

  11. I love this, Magally! Gothic and just compelling to read, mysterious yet full of declarative values and a truth that is both subtle and so apparent that most people rigidly ignore it--I love the ending, the message on the blanket.There is a darkness in many of us, but sometimes it is exactly what leads us to the light.
