Pinkney Wilde is a young officer with heightened senses that often draw him to danger. After an evening at the local inn, Pinkney attempts to save a friend who is being attacked by a deadly creature. (Short story. Complete) Creature Feature Finalist :)
Reader discretion advised. Recommended for readers ages 15 years and over. Contains fantasy action violence and infrequent coarse language, within the context of a Gothic fantasy story.
Arresting Sight may be read as a stand alone short story. It is also prologue short story to an upcoming serial Gothic novel, A Cunning of Madness, to commence on Wattpad December 2016. Facing a charge of attempted murder, Pinkney Wilde would prefer to face trial than be deemed a lunatic, yet he is transferred to an asylum where he discovers he is 'Tempered', of mixed magical blood.
I am undertaking a PhD in creative writing exploring digital serial writing techniques. Posting commentary or feedback in response to my stories on Wattpad will be taken as your implied consent to participate in a research project. The aim of this project is not to gather information on readers, but rather to examine how comments and advice help me to improve my own writing.
So I truly welcome your comments and follows. I will be committed to writing and posting weekly instalments of my upcoming novel A Cunning of Madness, so as a reader you can be assured of my commitment to my world of The Tempered and my readers.
Thanks for joining me on this journey.
