FrankenKitty 9 #wewriwar #amwriting


(Some assembly required)


Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors.  This is a sample from my work in progress, “Frankenkitty”, and I hope you enjoy it.  It started out as a young-adult superhero book, and well, you’ll see. Last week, in the chapter, “The Gerbil from Hell,” the girls found a test subject. The trouble starts this week.

That evening, Jennifer persuaded her father to drop her off at Amber’s. She brought a cooled corpse, Bobby’s gerbil, fresh from the refrigerator. Mary was already there.

Amber said, “This is cray cray, you know.”

They followed the recipe from Dr. Frankenstein’s notes. The solution, a mixture of various things, was a viscous pink goo. Jennifer picked up ajar of it and said, “It doesn’t glow like the notes say; what did we do wrong?”

“We don’t have lightening,” Mary asked, “How can we finish the mixture?”

Amber smiled, then said, “Remember last year, when we built a coil?”

This is a work in progress. In other news, I’ve become a booktrope author, but more on that latter. It has meant a change in pen-name. The week before last week’s is here and you can read the whole last chapter if you’d rather.  I’ve added a sub-title “(some assembly required).”

I’m also looking for reviewers for my nearly ready book “The Curious Profession of Dr. Craven” It’s moved out of layout to final assembly. Although if you wait a few day’s (after the release)  I’ll have a rafflecopter where you can enter the review URL to win a prize.

International man of mystery. Well not really, although I can mangle several languages and even read the occasional hieroglyphic. A computer scientist, an author and one of the very few people who has both an NIH grant and had a book contract. An ex- booktrope author and a photographer.

  1. This is such a cool snippet. I would have so read this in my youth and wanted to do it too! Not that I won’t read it now. 🙂 Can’t wait to see what they do next.

Bedrock & Paradox

I dream of a hard and brutal mysticism in which the naked self merges with a non-human world and yet somehow survives still intact, individual, separate. Paradox and bedrock.
