Welcome to the official blog of Hannah Hounshell. Here you can follow along with me as I stumble along the path to publication. Let's just hope I don't fall into too many potholes along the way. Wish me luck ^_~

A snippet for those who are curious...
I'm still on my little three day break between chapters(chapter 25 will be started on the 22nd), but I thought I'd share a scene snippet with you guys. Its too small to be stolen and used outside of the story, but hopefully it gives you a peek ahead anyway.
This is a scene between Shadow and Ricardo...
“Why are you afraid to touch me?”
“I am not afraid”, I replied, my voice a low whisper as I tried to ignore the blush that suddenly heated my cheeks. His newly healed palm was hot against mine, and his touch sent an odd tingle through my flesh.
“Then why won’t you?”
I bit my lip, my eyes still locked on the sight of my hand in his. “It is improper for me to touch a male, any male, so casually. We are not blood-family, or courting. It is not for me to do such a thing without your permission.”
He did not speak, and after a moment I looked up to see him smiling at me. The light in his eyes was gentle, unlike the fire I had glimpsed earlier when I had healed his bruises. Slowly he opened his hand until our palms were simply resting against each other. “And how do I grant permission?”, he asked softly.
As you can see, its just a brief bit. I picked this one because a friend of mine liked it, and it stands out to me. Don't ask me why, it just does. And I like it too.
