NEW BEGINNINGS a short-short by Kay Dee Royal gets Ladybugged
All too often in the busy ebb and flow or cataclysmic rise and fall of life stories we have in our
TO READ list get passed over, forgotten, or otherwise shifted upon our piles of the many things we mean to get to but the pile keeps getting bigger and bigger until it takes an intervening event to bring the original MUST READ back into the prominent position.
That's what happened here. I have had this short, HOT read NEW BEGINNINGS from Kay Dee Royal for a while, but life took its many bumpy turns. The other day one of our cats took a flying leap, like a wanna be
Super Kitty, minus the cape, across the room, landing on a pile of my folders, scattered them far and wide, requiring a massive cleanup.
I was not overly happy, but hunkered down and what to my wondering eyes should appear...
I have read Kay Dee Royal's books and loved her paranormal telling voice...this one is no different...if anything it is all the moreso because it IS such a short story to tell such a POWERFUL story!
Instead of Werewolves, Kay Dee takes us into the realm of vampires...two actually...who've been separated a very long time...five hundred years...on the eve when the female vamp is weary...can no longer figure a reason for not facing the sun and the end of her long, lonely existence.
I never expected the twist Kay Dee brought into her vampire world, nor the power she managed to instill with so little effort, background, or detail.
This story proves Kay Dee is truly one of the most gifted authors swimming in that huge literary sea out there today. I do not know how you can get your hands on this particular story...my guess is you'll have to contact Ms. Royal herself, BUT I am reviewing this story and posting my review because any author who can touch me this deeply in less than six pages deserves all the praise I can muster upon her...and a following...
SO FIVE STARS for
NEW BEGINNINGS and may I recommend you check out Kay Dee Royal at her publisher Muse It Up Publishing and at Amazon.com. She is also available where fine e-books are available as well.
At this moment I KNOW she has these books available:
Big Girls Don't Cry Wolf
How To Net A Prince
One PLus One
Staring Into the Eyes of Chance
