Here it is...

WORD FOR THIS POST:

Spectrology (n): the study of ghosts, phantoms, or apparitions.

I finally have a blurb for Marked: A Two Halves Novella.  I can't even explain how much I enjoyed writing this one. It was easy, which I cannot often say about writing and my other pieces I'm currently working on. It took a life of its own as Xander told his story. 

The novella digs further into where a few unique characters from the novel come from. It's written from a male POV. The only place I struggled with were the intimate scenes as they were very spicy. And, I decided to keep them that way. Nothing else made sense and making them PG didn't make sense either, simply because that's who Xander was.
Warning: Adult Content
Enjoy!


Xander is a shapeshifter, a watcher, a demon. Stuck in an oblivion between good and evil, he impatiently waits to be marked—with the sphere that will identify him as a servant of the underworld; or with the water mark, serving the keepers of humans, vampires, and warlocks. His twin sister, in love with a man bearing the water mark, wants Xander to follow the path of the good. But Xander is in love with a black witch, minion of the underworld. All he has to do to join her forever . . . is kill. After all, there's something good about being bad.
