A deadly plague burns through the village of Bliss, and a weary stranger approaches on a pale horse. The stranger doesn't know what treachery, fear, and pain he might encounter in the desperate village. He thinks he doesn't have anything left to lose. But it's not the plague, the murderers, or the terror he finds that reveals damnation. What he brings with him could destroy everything he still loves.

Dark, gritty, introspective, and profound, "The Omens of a Crow" is a powerful tale of hatred in society, and man's struggle to reconcile inner demons with universal evils.

Am I the only one who got Vikings vibes with Wodensday for Wednesday? Love this already
I'm trying to collect my thoughts enough to leave a coherent comment, but wow, I loved every word of this. You're a phenomenal writer and storyteller and I'm not surprised in the least that you made it onto the Wattys Longlist. I look forward to reading more of your work!
