#HDH takes a peek into Fractured, with @ellen__cross

After a small break to get over the flu, I am so happy to be back to celebrate another Hump Day Hook!
For those of you who are new to HDH, we are a group of authors, who each week share a small taste of our work with the world. This week, I share a little snippet of my WIP, Fractured, a MM paranormal romance that will be published through EXtasy Books in the near future.
I am sharing a beginning taste of the prologue with you all. It is a little on the long side, but these two paragraphs need to be put together, to set the scene. I hope you don't mind :)
Krogan peered into the Well of all Tears, his brow furrowing into deeply grooved lines that showed the true depth of his concern. His fingers gripped the gold gilt edging of the pool that lapped with a gentle ripple from the gathering moisture far above, falling as a single teardrop at a time into the shallow waters below. The reflected image shimmered, quivering in a motion that matched the unsettled trembling of his churning stomach.
Tiona wrapped her arm around his waist, weaving herself under his arm and against the breadth of his chest as she too peered into the waters, shivering as she watched the fragments of the future unfold before her. A tear slipped from the corner of her eye and traced down her cheek, sliding down her chin and joining those shed by the heavens, into the pool.


  1. That's a really intriguing excerpt. I can't wait to read more!

  2. The well of all tears is a very interesting idea. I wonder why it shows the future though.
    It might be showing a very sad version of it.

  3. Thank you, all. I will follow through with more of the prologue in coming weeks, which should hopefully shed some light into the well :)
