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

WWW- Razzle the imp




Snippet from Bloodstone 



Bored, Razzle redirected his focus to the female right next to him in the back of the room. She lay on a chaise, her red hair sprawled out over the side like a frozen waterfall of blood. She watched the ceiling until the front door opened. Razzle turned and saw someone new, someone not human. She smelled…of ash and…Razzle racked his brain. It wasn’t the dung smell of an imp or the earthy smell of a fairy. She smelled crisper, like a chilled wind or snow.
