Guest Post: Fractured Light by Rachel McClellan

Welcome to Author Rachel McClellan


My mind only knows how to write. Other people perform simple tasks like cleaning their house or using the bathroom without a distracting thought.

I can’t.

Yesterday I meant to vacuum, but ended up scrubbing blood out of my carpet instead. The body’s still in the freezer. And when I went to take a shower, a little girl in a red dress and pigtails appeared to me in the vanity mirror. Again. I wish she would go away.

See what I mean? My life is a story and the only way to stay sane is write it all down. I only hope others can find joy in my insanity.

Teenage Garage Sale
What kind of items would we find in a garage sale of stuff from your teenage years? You can assign values if you’d like.

~Collection of my first cassette tapes, which includes Firehouse, Metallica, Gearge Michael and Maddona.
Price: Will part with them for $20.

~Collection of Blossom hats. Did I really wear those? Um, yeah, along with metal peace sign necklaces.
Price: $1.00

~Collection of sports junk – sun bleached basketball, racquetball racquet and ball, snowboard + gear.
Price: Free if buyer agrees to use all items.

~1980 Plymouth Colt. It’s white with red interior that’s only partly peeling up in every corner. The coolest thing about this car is it vibrates when you drive over 40 mph. For this reason alone I’m asking $1000.

~A full body cow suit equipped with six utters. This costume is guaranteed to turn a boring night into an adventure you’ll never forget. It worked for me.
Price: Pay what you think it’s worth.

~8mm Video Camera – Let your creative juices flow and make some amazing home video’s. I’ll throw in my old episodes of Saturday Night Life for inspiration.
Price: $5.00

~A pair of calf high Converse shoes, you know the kind where you could fold over the top half and they were a different color, like florescent pink?
Price: Priceless

Fractured Light

I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice.
Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.
As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.
In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.
