What's the Story About?

"Some folks treated the past like an old friend. The memories warmed them with fondness for what was, and hope for what was to come. Not me. When I thought of long ago, my insides curdled, and I was left feeling sour and wasted."

Jenny Schmidt is a young woman with old heartaches. A small town Texas girl with big city attitude, she just doesn't fit in. Not that she has ever tried. She wears loneliness like a comfy sweatshirt. By the age of twenty-one, she was the last living member of her immediate family. Or so she thought…

"We found my 'grandfather' sitting at his dining room table. An entire scorched pot of coffee dangled from his shaky hand. His skin was the ashen gray shade of thunderclouds, not the rich mocha from the photo I'd seen. There were dark blue circles under each swollen red eye. A halo of white hair skirted his bald head, a crown of tangles and mats. Corpses had more life in them."

Suddenly, instead of burying her history with the dead, Jenny is forced to confront the past. Armed only with an ancient family journal, her rifle, and an Apache tomahawk, she must save her grandfather's life and embrace her dangerous heritage. Or be devoured by it.

Blood Fugue by E.J. Wesley is the first of the Moonsongs books, a series of paranormal-action novelettes. At fewer than 13k words, Blood Fugue is the perfect snack for adventurous readers who aren't afraid of stories with bite. Available wherever fine eBooks are sold September 2012.

Join the party at The Open Vein, E.J.'s blog, and on Twitter.

Comic Con is coming to Montreal! I've never been to one, but this one features Captain Picard, Captain Kirk, Q, Data... and more! And Wil Wheaton!

As for ROW80... I'm struggling with the query. But I wrote an essay all about my first novel, The Strange Girl, written in Grade Four! I'll post a link as soon as it's live.

What was your first-ever story about?

I don't remember my first-ever story, Devin. But I can't wait to read yours. :)
Good luck with the query! Thanks for sharing your projects.

I don't think I remember my first story but in kindergarten I used to write, and illustrate books about a prince and princess who got married and take them to show and tell.

I always find so many interesting things on your blog, Deniz!

My first story was about a banana who could talk. I wrote it for my tiny cousins at bedtime.

Good luck with all your projects.
Zan Marie said…
Oh, goodness! My first story was so lame! I don't even want to try and remember it. ; )

Good luck on the query, Deniz!
First-ever? How far back are we talking about? My first finished novel was Space Opera/SF, but I wrote a silly little story before I was ten about a dolphin and a genie.

Deniz Bevan said…
Thanks, Laurel!

Show and tell! You were brave, Sara!

Aww, thanks, Glynis. Love the talking banana!

Thanks, Zan Marie!

A dolphin and a genie in the same story, Eagle? That sounds interesting!

I can't remember my first story but I really loved creative writing when I was younger. My sister wrote a story about the moon and from that point, I wanted to write.
Talli Roland said…
Oh, yay! Thank you so much for sharing my cover, Deniz!
Barbara Rogan said…
I still have mine. It's about two gunfighters in a saloon circling each other, and a janitor with a broom named George who outdraws them both. Clearly predictive of my ensuing career!
Michael Di Gesu said…
Thanks for giving us the scoop Deniz.

Wow, Comic Con in Montreal .... cool!

Since I hadn't done any creative writing in HS and College, my first real writing was only three years ago with my first novel.

I can't remember what my first story was about. I have faint memories of writing Halloween stories in elementary school. In middle school I wrote soap-opera-like stories about my friends.

You've highlighted some great books here. I have Oracle and will look into the others.
Hi Deniz .. gosh I've been dilatory getting onto blogs .. Talli's new book is out .. and then Oracle - one I want to read, while Blood Fugue sounds interesting ..

I did too, Laura! My first story was a sort of retelling of the cow that jumped over the moon.

Happy to do it, Talli!

Great idea, Barbara! You wouldn't believe my gall at a younger age - I was 13 when I decided to write a story about three outlaws in the California desert, knowing nothing about a) male conversations, b) the desert, and c) California.

I would have thought you'd started much earlier, Michael!

My wishlist is getting full, too, Hilary and Medeia!

Thanks for dropping by, Donna! I can't believe there are so many participants!
