Sneak Peek #3: A Bullet for Death’s Rifle by Emily Duncan, illustrated by Sonia Liao

8e3c58ec9e19f56385dbfd7815dc3621_original copy

Death is a girl named Caterina Kazakova. She harvests souls with her sniper rifle and watches as war tears through her country, as it always has and always will. When Caterina falls in love with a soldier in the warlord’s army, she knows what they have will be a short and bitter thing. A girl who is Death cannot love; a boy who is a soldier in this war is fated to die.

She collected the tethers like strings tied to her fingers, some black, some red, some in colors that Caterina had no name for. There were many, the aftermath of this battle was grim. A shot. A tether tied to her index finger. Another shot. A string tied to her wrist. She did not discriminate, she tied strings from both sides around and around until her own gloves had disappeared underneath the weight of the souls and their stories.

But it was dangerous to listen. It was dangerous to bend an ear and allow the soul their final words. If one spoke, the rest would hear and demand their turn. Too many tethers, too many strings, too many souls to ever hear their woes and their unfulfilled dreams. Better to set them free.

Anti Valentine’s Day Cards

New Composition with Bill Skarsgård as Archer

Archer

I used a photo of Bill Skarsgård as reference, drew him with curly hair, made the colors however I wanted. and made a cool background. Woo.

So after all that’s done: This is how I imagine the main character of my novel. His name is Archer.

 

New Character Alert!

Caspian

So I told you I was taking a break form Godfrey, right? Right. Well I’m working on a new scifi/fantasy/romance about a Merman. Yes. You can laugh.

Anyway, it focuses around Caspian, a 23 year old Merman with loads of secrets and a playful smirk.

So part of the way I realize my characters is by drawing them. So here he is: Caspian Calder.  Who is evidently a beefier, aquamarine haired Ton Heukels in Merman form.

Let me know in the comments and likes if you are interested in excerpts from this as I write it 😀

My love for outlining splotches continues…

Moy love for outlining splotches continues...

So I guess I like to control all the unexpected and wild things that happen in my life, huh? I am noticing a pattern in my body of work. I make things I can’t control and then control them. ❤
