Hey all! Giving Six Sentence Sunday another blast.
Again, I’d like to share some lines from my Work In Progress (1st draft), the tentatively titled Book 2 of the “Touch” series: Warrior’s Touch.
I’m trying to share tantilising text without giving too much away (especially with reference to the soon-to-be-released Healer’s Touch). Hopefully this doesn’t give too much away…
“So, he’s got your internal magic, and Llewella’s external magic combined…” Jonas looked at him like he was speaking another language, but Braph continued. “He’ll be fast and strong, but he’ll also be able to heal, but he doesn’t need to channel it from outside. He’ll need to eat well to support all that magic, but he’s pretty much invincible. And I’m willing to bet he thinks he’s better than everyone, too. The world, brother, is about to get a reminder of what it’s like when immense power is wielded by the arrogant.”

And again, here’s a blurb for Healer’s Touch (although, we’re working on something even more compelling for the back-cover copy…):
Llew has a gift. Her body heals itself from any injury—but at a cost to anyone nearby.
In a country fearful of magic, freeing yourself from the hangman’s noose by wielding forbidden power brings dangers of its own. After dying and coming back, Llew drops from the gallows into the hands of Jonas: the man carrying the knife with the power to kill her—permanently.
The last of his warrior race, Jonas is haunted by memories of his loved ones. At his side, the cursed knife that took their lives, which also acts as a cruel reminder of his pain. Jonas has learned the hard way that caring for others means their death.
Jealous of his half-brother’s celebrated strength and speed, Braph created the device that gives him the power to perform magic, any magic. But it needs fuel—the blood of a healer …
Feel free to click on the links on the right that let you sign up to follow this blog, or follow me on Facebook or Twitter. I’ll let you know when the book comes out, don’t you worry about that! Currently slated for “early 2013″ release, so not too far away!
Oh, and if you’re still not interested, here’s what my publisher has to say:
“Healer’s Touch is quirky, fast-paced, deliciously humorous and suitable for both the YA and adult market. With Wild West and Steampunk homages throughout – you can’t help but admire Deb E’s talent. Cross genre, cross style, but pure brilliance.” — Kristell Ink
“HT is quirky, fast paced, Western-steampunk-fantasy. It’s Llew’s journey of self discovery and acceptance and the start of her emotional healing.”— Kristell Ink
Of course, they may have an ulterior motive for saying such nice things…
