* draw a card from the deck
* kill or be killed
* and if you’re lucky, repeat…

Hidden agendas, deep, dark secrets, and monsters lurking around every locker. It’s business as usual at Redgrave High for Eryn and her crew of paranorm hunters – although the two guys vying for her heart just might have to up their game.

A little healthy competition soon becomes all-out survival of the fittest as the crew are pitted against a pack of demons trading souls – for keeps. The student population is enamored with a new card game, Boroughs Quest. Kids are desperate to get their hands on gilded cards from a mysterious expansion deck, but when they do…

It’s all fun and games ’til somebody dies.

Guest Post: Reno Your Fiction

For the last few months my household has been in various stages of absolute chaos as we tackled several large reno projects at once. Sometimes I can’t believe all this started from a simple desire to change our kitchen sink faucet and morphed into: sanding and painting the cupboards, replacing countertops, sink, faucet, busting out old tiles and replacing the backsplash with new ones, new flooring, mouldings, doors…

And then it hit me.

Renos are a lot like the revision process after you complete a first draft. You start tweaking one area only to find a major plot hole, which leads to an in-depth evaluation of character motivation, which leads to changes in the backstory that ultimately impact your neat and tidy ending. So you slash that to bits and build it up again – but better - and in many ways FAR more emotionally satisfying than your initial effort.

Do things get messy along the way? Do you end up eating more takeout and doing less laundry in order to get the beast under control? Sure. But soon all that back-breaking, mind-numbing hard work begins to pay off. You read your newly revised manuscript and are amazed at how things have fallen into place.

Just like me. In my renoed kitchen. As I sit back and savour a cup of coffee, taking in the wonders a bit of elbow grease can accomplish.

Don’t be content with reaching THE END. It really is just the beginning. Now get out there and reno the crap out of your fiction!
