Bian’s Tale – Darkness Falls – third part

Here is the tenth episode of Bian’s Tale; the third part of Section 5 – ‘Darkness Falls’.

This is a short episode. This whole section ‘Darkness Falls’ needs a lot of polish. The scenes themselves are okay (I think), but as I re-read it, the section lacks one of the vital ingredients of tension – the feeling that time is running out. From the moment La Poste effectively identifies Bian in their article quoting Lieutenant Governor Hubert, there must be a ticking clock.

Even over Christmas, the blog is getting a lot of hits, but you’re mostly being very quiet, certainly in comparison to A Name Among The Stars, or for that matter, the first time I posted the first half dozen chapters of this book. Many thanks for those that have made comments.

Feedback folks. 🙂

Anyway, all that aside, here come the monsters…

Bian’s Tale – Darkness Falls – first part

Here is the eighth episode of Bian’s Tale; the first part of Section 5 – ‘Darkness Falls’.

Seemingly alone in Saigon with only the unpleasant cousins from France, Bian comes to realize that she cannot satisfy all the demands made on her. To pursue one course is to destroy another. She must choose. Who will she betray?

In a Saigon haunted by a demonic tiger shifter, who is also the gang lord that wants the secrets of the Emperor’s gold from her family, will she even get the chance?

Who can she trust?

And, oh yes, this one ends on a cliffhanger.

Feedback folks. 🙂

Here is the fifth episode of Bian’s Tale; the second half of Section 3 – ‘The Right Path’.

In which Ophélie/Bian has a close brush with the sinister Pere St Cyprien, makes great progress with some of her tasks, has a peek beneath the veil of the paranormal in Saigon, meets the French cousins (an ominous beginning), and attends the Harvest Ball, where…gasp…

I’m on a writer’s retreat, staying on my own in an apartment in Madrid. I’m writing half the time and exploring the other half. I’ll post pictures and comments on Facebook.
