New Covers for the Tunuftol series by Ann Snizek

author-pic.jpg.jpgHello. Here’s a bit about Ann Snizek in her own words…

I’m the youngest out of 7 and a daughter of an immigrant. My dad’s family were very active in the live theatre for years with my grandmother being an actress who did costumes and sets while my grandfather was a playwright and director. They owned their own theatre in Prague, in what is now the Czech Republic before escaping. My grandfather published at least one book (in Czech) and when they followed my dad to the USA, they formed a touring troupe. My dad did many years of community theatre and wrote an online autobiography that I’m planning on editing and publishing as a book. My dad majored in English, his 5th language, when he came to the states. He became a teacher and principal for many years.

I learned how to read before starting school and excelled in it given my love of books. I’m still remembered as the girl in elementary school who sat writing during recess. Books, both writing and reading, are an escape as well as outlet for me. When we lost one of our sons in 2010 I began to write as if my own life depended on it. Beginning with my first NaNoWriMo challenge, I wrote the first draft of Tunuftol’s Fortress of Light in only 3 weeks. That was approximately 75K words. Continue reading

Excerpt:

CHAPTER 7 • ATTACK OF THE WOLFMAN

 

SYRACUSE GROVE APARTMENTS…

Destiny and Elise back away from Chris. He turns his head as Rose enters the room. Chris chuckles. Elise tries to recall a spell as she shakes with her wand in hand. Destiny tries to move but the suit seems to hamper her movement. Chris moves closer to Elise and Destiny.

“Get the fuck out, Chris!” Shouts Destiny. “We’re through! We’ve been through for years!”

He laughs. “You’re still my wife! Don’t forget that” The laugh is hearty and heavy. Chris continues to move forward. Elise starts to move her hands. Chris zooms over and grabs her hands. Elise begins to struggle. She drops her wand onto the floor.

Destiny backs away towards the guest room. “You fucker. When you tried to kill me that killed our marriage and our relationship. If I had found you earlier, I would have killed you, myself. I don’t love you. You fucked up.”

Rose moves in front of Destiny. She turns to Destiny. “Run!” Destiny turns and heads to the guest room.

Chris kicks Rose. Rose flies across the room and hits the far wall. she hits the ground unconscious. With Elise, in hand, he turns his attention on Destiny. Before she can reach her bag, Chris grabs her injured leg and pulls. Destiny hits the ground hard. “Fuck you, Chris! You’re an asshole.”

Destiny kicks his arm. Chris catches her free leg. Destiny’s anger begins to rise. Her body begins to shake. Chris slams her into the wall. Destiny becomes woozy.

Chris, then, lifts her off the ground. He huffs and puffs. Chris throws Destiny and Elise over his shoulders. He, then, takes them towards the back bedroom. Destiny and Elise look at one another and gulp.

Elise screams. “You do this and you’re dead, Chris! Michel will rip you apart! I am under the protection of Lycan Law! This domain is covered by the NorWesters!”

Chris chuckles. “Do you think I give a fuck about Lycan Law. I am now going to tear your insides apart. Both of you. This is going to be fun. My legacy will live on… IN YOU!” He maniacally laughs.

He walks towards the back bed room. A huge smile is on his face.

Destiny quivers. “Please, Chris. Don’t do this. This is not you.” Destiny is shaking with fear.

Chris throws them down on the bed. “You know nothing about me Destiny! I am completely different than you remember.” He roars.

“Obviously.” Destiny says.

He jumps upon the bed. Using his razor sharp claws, he shreds the clothes both Destiny and Elise are wearing. This frees Destiny’s left leg. She kicks him. Then, he grabs her leg. Chris chuckles and slams his elbow into the knee. Destiny hears her knee shatter. Destiny cries out in pain.
