Buried - Free at smashwords

Picture By far the most fun I've had writing is when I wrote Buried. The words fell out of me as I sat in front of an open fire one dark winter night. And still today I re-read it and am left feeling a little somewhat humbled by my own writing talent.

The White Queen, Novella 1, Beyond Endless Tides (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 16, 2016 10:08PM
Description: The worlds oceans are in peril. Microscopic planktonia numbers are dwindling, along with the fish the asperini depend on. Many asperini shawls believe the only way to secure a future is to abandon the ocean entirely, in favour of living on land alongside the nghozas. The only way to achieve this is to become nghozas themselves, but with the desertion of the magic wielding Muird, there is no other option but to mate with them. Morgella of Finyarn is born to such a shawl and does not believe in the will of their leader's creed. With help, she escapes and is shown the way to the White Queen, the only ligphur who may know the way to aid asperini everywhere, for she is gifted and can see into the great ahead and may be their only hope for a future within the ocean
