Free short story The Silver Wand (Part 2 of 4) now available

Here we are again, and this month it's Part 2 of "The Silver Wand," continuing the adventures of Hal, Robbie, Abigail, and Lauren as they step across into a strange new world. There they meet scruffy teenager Quincy Flack, who you might recognize as the guy from my novel Quincy's Curse.

Quincy is a troubled character, very lonely, with a sad history. He blames himself for everything, but worse, his horrible aunt and uncle blame him too! This story is just a brief stop outside the town of Ramshackle Bottom, but if you want to read more about this rich world, then you should know that the novel starts right where Part 2 of "The Silver Wand" leaves off.

In case you don't know, Quincy's Curse follows the plight of Quincy as he meets a girl and, together, they wind up in an adventure involving stolen treasure, quite a few colorful characters, a string of amazingly coincidental events, and a sinister villain known as the Red-Legged Scissor Man with his undead henchman Pike. Oh, and there's a taxman named Wormley, who is the worst of the lot.

Though the story follows Quincy throughout, each chapter is told from someone else's point of view, making it a wholly unique experience that I think works really well and gives it a level of interest it wouldn't otherwise have. It's a book I'm really proud of, but it needs more readers.

So go read "The Silver Wand" now on my Island of Fog Free Short Stories page. And if you want to meet Quincy for real, pick up a copy of Quincy's Curse. I'd love to know what you think.

Do a book with Bo in action. We did not read much action when he first shifted.
