If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

 8 sentences from my novel Bloodstone
* Sorry, I chose not to continue from last weeks mainly because I want to leave you all hanging- wondering what happens and why.

    Lady Charmaine sat upright when he entered the room. The woman couldn’t see him despite her sense of his magic.
    If anyone ever asked Razzle, Charmaine was over confident. His Master would find the bloodstone and beat the rebellion back. Charmaine wouldn’t even know what hit her. 
    Smelly human, he could claw at her insides and eat her fat while she gasped for air when his Master was through with them all. 
    Razzle giggled and licked his fingers. He sniffed the air.

Oh, he sounds very very creepy. I'm assuming he's not the hero. lol

Yeah, interesting stuff, I liked the notion of her sensing something magically that she can't see.

Who's POV is this in - Razzle or Lady Charmaine?

What sort of creature is Razzle? Cat? Dog? Werewolf? Really creepy butler?

Great sense of his character in these eight.

Oh man, creepy is the first word that comes to mind! Given that shuddery atmosphere, one doesn't expect a name like Razzle - cool! Great excerpt, really curious about what's going on now.

For some reason I think of Gollum reading this. Some powerful visuals. :)

Yeesh, I don't think I like this guy. ;) Good job of making my skin crawl while hanging on the edge of my seat wondering what's going to happen.

Cherie Reich said...

Razzle and this Master of his sound very creepy. :)

Susan Kane said...

Razzle obviously has some crazy skills. Licking his fingers and smelling the air--not good for Charmaine.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Oooo Summer, this is so different from what I would expect. Chillingly creepy.
