Soul Swallower – new series WIP from D. Wallace Peach at Myths of the Mirror

I think that’s the name of the series. I like the alliteration anyway. Better than Soul Gulper.

Perhaps you remember the character Raze from one of Sue Vincent’s #writephoto prompts. Well, he’s back with a series of his own.

I don’t have too much to share yet, but here’s a brief peek at the act of swallowing a soul:

***

When the others retired, Raze sat by the hearth, its flames dwindling to scarlet embers.

  2. See what you did, Sue? You kicked off a whole new series with a photo of a rainy window. Ha ha. Thanks for sharing. My muse is cracking the whip and I’m writing away. ❤

  3. Thank you, Sue, for bringing another gift from Diana to my attention. I adore everything I’ve read from her. Even tho’ fantasy has never really been my reading preference, I really MUST move her books UP on my TBR list! (yours too, btw – and Tink is eager for me to read aloud anything with Ani on the cover!)

    Jumping over to see D’s newest – hoping my soul won’t be swallowed and that pleasant dreams won’t allude me tonight. 🙂
