Next part of my vampire story..ooooh...aaaaaah..... **UPDATED** Reworked a lot. Third Chapter is coming soon. Enjoy.
I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with this, but I like it so far. It's partly based on a personal experience, but mostly just made up. Hope you like it!

So, this is the second chunk of the chapter, significantly larger than the first....I sincerely hope you like dialogue. :( And you don't mind subplots reminiscent of the Industrial Revolution. And you like eery clock-and-dagger type dealings. (But who DOESN'T like those?) Next chapter, I check in with Willow again....
Time for another random Point of View change!The mysterious woman that ended the last chapter is Emrpress Helena of Soltara, who we meet here.One of the things I've always marveled at is how easy telepathy seems in most Fantasy stories. I imagine that it would take a fair bit of practice! There's a lot more going on in your brain than yuo realize, and the person you're trying to communicate doesn't necessarily think in the same manner as you. Unless you want to puzzle through the images, scents, sounds, emotions and erroneous connections in the other person's mind, the easiest thing to do would to be to focus on the words you're trying to communicate, and even then, you can't block everything out....
Here, across the ocean from Magtara, we meet another important player in my story; Prince Thainen. He is an ambitious mage, still smarting from a myserious disagreement with his father.This chapter is a little slow, but I promise more action and intrigue in the next chapter! :P
This is the story of Millie, an automaton with a mind of her own. The story is set in the late 19th century, and my idea was to capture the flavor of the period as faithfully as possible. Technology and science were developing rapidly at the time, and the advances of technology took on a mysterious, almost magical aura. The idea of a living machine was, as it is today, alluring, mysterious and a bit frightening.
The first chapter after the prologue of a Steampunk story I started writing a couple of months ago.
Another tale of an American traveler: A year after his adventures in India, Ethan travels back to his favourite place in America: Cape Cod. After befriending a local who offers him lodging, he is dragged to a house in another town; the house of a former whaling ship captain. There he discovers a new definition of both sorrow and terror…I had a very useful map for the different locations. Everything in here is as accurate as possible with regards to locations, towns, and landmarks. The names of the beaches and harbors are as written in the Atlas of Barnstable County by George H. Walker & Co. published in 1880, which is a full 25 years after this story takes place.
This is my most difficult Ethan Tamerlin tale to date. It took me a few months, on and off, to write this. The deal is this: Yet another year after his last adventure which happened on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA, Ethan makes to visit his two friends in Tunisia. But on the way there he finds himself prey to a group of savage men, and then he is at the mercy of the desert. Will he survive? Will he ever learn to stop travelling and settle down? Will I stop asking these stupid questions? Oh, just read the story and find out!
