Awakening The Sity

It’s still hard for me to believe that it’s been five years since I first released The Sity. It’s been quite the rollercoaster journey for the book and also for myself as a writer. I’ve learned so much about myself through this process; and also, I think, improved so much at my craft.

It was never an easy ride, but it was always fun–even when I got my first one-star review!

To celebrate these wonderful five years, I’ve re-launched The Sity in a new 3-part format. If you’ve already read The Sity, all I can say is Thank You! And if you haven’t yet, this is a good way to jump into this wicked world!

So with that said, I’m very excited to announce the release of The Sity Part 1: Awakening.

***

sityp1-awakening-red

Deep below the ground, an electric prod crackles–and a boy screams. The months of torture and enslavement have shredded his memory. But with each strike, something else awakens…something seeking vengeance.

High above the ground, an electric storm rages–and a girl huddles in shadows. Carina is haunted by strange visions and the symbols imprinted on her skin. She will stop at nothing to discover her true identity.

In this tale of survival, two teenagers fight back against the oppression of an alien race called the Kuljik. Dangers and unspeakable horrors lie around every corner of the Sity, a violent metropolis where enslaved humans are abused for the pleasure of the aliens. Victor and Carina are both blessed with mysterious supernatural powers and represent humanity’s best hope to escape. Will their personal demons cause them to unravel as they forge the destiny of their futures?

This is “Part One” of the full book THE SITY.

What’s Left of You

Hey folks,
So I know I’ve pretty much disappeared from my blogging, twitter, and FB pages. Instead of keeping up with social media, I’ve been busy being a daddy to a crazy, energetic, almost-two-year-old girlie. And I’ve also been busy working on three different projects.

Here’s a little preview from one of the projects, which is tentatively titled:
What’s Left of You.

***

He reached forward to claw at his right foot. Her tiny, soft hand pulled his arm back. Her eyes were watery, but unwavering. She didn’t say a word. She didn’t need to. She was always right. Somehow, even at the age of fourteen, she knew better than her old man.

If only I could be more like you, Chase thought with a grimace then a grin. He smiled at his daughter. She didn’t smile back. Chase shook his fists, shaking away the burning desire to touch his foot—what little was left of it. He unraveled his fist into an open palm and caught the tears that trickled down Hannah’s cheeks. How much more can I put her through? Chase wondered. How can I afford not to?

“You promised me,” Hannah said with lowered eyes. She hunched over next to him on the bench.

“I know,” Chase replied.

Hannah picked at the scab on her knee. She didn’t say anything.

“This will be the last time,” Chase lied.

“OK, dad.”

Chase reached into his pocket. He laid the crumbled sale slip on her lap. “Look at how much they paid me this time.” He gently guided her head up so he could see her wet eyes. “Now, we can get enough food for the next month.”

Hannah’s stomach rumbled. “T-T-That’s great, dad.”

Chase sighed. “Honey, and remember that dress you wanted. Now…now we can finally get it.”

Hannah looked up. “Really?”

“Yes, really,” Chase said. “You deserve it. You deserve that and many more dresses. You deserve everything you want.” Tears flooded from her eyes. “What’s wrong, honey?”

“It was just a stupid dress,” Hannah whispered. “I didn’t even want it that much. I-I-I wish I hadn’t said anything about it. If I knew you’d do this, I wouldn’t have…”

“I know,” Chase interjected. “Hey you… you listen to me. I wanted to do this. I did. Your birthday is coming up and last year you didn’t get anything. So things are going to be different from now on.”

“OK dad.” Hannah looked down again. “Next time…”

“There will be no next time.”

“Next time, just let me do it,” Hannah said. “They’ve taken enough of you already.”

The Sity is in a War, and it needs your help!

I think The Sity’s cover is pretty badass, and I hope you do, too!

Today’s Featured Author: Kyra Halland

I’m excited to spotlight fantasy novelist Kyra Halland. Her latest adventure is called The Rancher’s Daughter (Daughter of the Wildings #3) and its “suspenseful storyline is full of action, drama and romance.”

Unknown.jpeg

Once a hunter of renegade wizards, Silas Vendine is now on the run from the law himself. He and Lainie are living on what Lainie can win at cards and whatever odd jobs Silas can get from people who need his skills and don’t ask too many questions.

When Lainie’s luck with the cards turns sour, they are led to a meeting with one of the richest ranchers in the Wildings. Brin Coltor wants Silas and Lainie to undertake a dangerous mission into A’ayimat territory for him, and they can’t afford to turn him down. But Coltor is hiding a few secrets of his own, that lead Silas and Lainie right into the trouble they’ve been trying to avoid.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Kyra Halland has always loved fantasy. She has also always loved a good love story. Years ago, as a new stay-at-home mom, she decided to combine those two loves – like chocolate and peanut butter! – by writing the kinds of romantic fantasy novels she wanted to read.

Complicated, honorable heroes; strong, smart, feminine heroines; magic, romance, and adventure; deep emotion mixed with a dash of offbeat humor – all of these make up Kyra Halland’s worlds. She loves sharing those worlds with readers and hopes they will enjoy her stories and characters as much as she does.

Kyra Halland lives in southern Arizona. She has a very patient husband, two less-patient cats, two young adult sons, a lovely daughter-in-law, and an adorable granddaughter. Besides writing, she enjoys scrapbooking and anime, and she wants to be a crazy cat lady when she grows up.
