Fiery Gemstones (A Heston Witch Novella)

Fiery gemstones is a Heston Witch Novella, part of a new YA trilogy The Heston Witches that follows the adventures a clan of powerful witches. There are two teenage witches, their grandma, their mums and their aunts.

Apart from the usual magical happenings that are the norm around such magical families and the typical teenage mischief that goes with the territory, their home and lives are under threat by a badie of epic proportions. It is a short but sweet read that was actually meant to serve as an intro to the trilogy but somehow got out of control .

If you haven't been introduced to the clan, do take a peek at the short story on Writing Shorts (http://wp.me/P2mNT1-U). They are a pushy bunch and they don’t take any mess from anyone but I’ve fallen in love with them and I hope you will too.

But what Jade doesn't know is not everything is what it seems. She is merely a puppet in a sadistic game to find out what she is truly capable of, and that game has only just begun.

Gods of Earth

A boy must fight gods. And only one girl can save him.

In the distant future, thousands of years after a war against human gods has devastated the Earth, the orphan witch child Chance Kyrien is adopted and raised by the Purimen, a sect of religious winemakers who have renounced all technology. Ambitious and fiercely devout, Chance dreams of nothing but being a good farmer and marrying the woman he loves, the Puriman Ranger, Sarah Michaels. But Chance has been hidden by the witches among the Purimen because he has a power that could change the world, and bring again the age of the human gods. When the crippled last god of the great war attacks Chance's family, the young Puriman learns that his only hope is to travel to the distant Numin Well, where he can strip the god of its powers and battle it alone. Chance is helped in his quest by Sarah and a group of unmen that he would have denounced as impure just weeks before: a talking coyote, an intelligent machine, a witch of the guild that created the human gods, and the ancient anti-god known as the Guardian.

Can Sarah keep Chance safe long enough to let him fight a god? And can Chance keep his faith and remain a Puriman, as he uncovers the darkest secrets of human history, and fights a battle that threatens to destroy what remains of the Earth?
