Back in 2006: 8 Years in the Making Back in 2006 I was a twenty-three year old who had the tendency to daydream. I never thought it was a bad habit. In fact, I often looked forward for the time of day I could sit back and play out stories in my mind. I guess even back then I knew that there was a writer lurking inside of me.

Back in 2006 my muse (who has been known never to shut up) followed me around for weeks. At that time I was obsessed with the urban environment and its awesome culture and wanted to fuse that together with a romantic story. After a brief AHA moment, Palace Hills was born.
 aha
Back in 2006 I had a huge crush on Channing Tatum and James Franco (understandably). I often write my stories by imagining each scene played out like a movie and it’s even easier when I have my own cast in mind. It was only fitting to “cast” my two favorite actors as the main characters of the book. Soon Channing and James helped shape my vision of Conner and Finley based on how I thought they would portray the characters. Palace Hills just continued to grow and blossom from that point on.

Back in 2006 I had plotted Palace Hills from beginning to end, but was just too busy as an upcoming young professional to even think of having the time to write it. So, I just let the story fester in the deepest recesses of my mind. Years flew by and I’d often tell my friends about the story. I’d tell them I’d get around to writing it eventually, but again I never did. In 2013 when I finally decided to follow my dream about becoming an author I began to write other stories knowing perfectly well that Palace Hills was screaming for attention – but again, I never got around to writing it.

2014. My best friend asked me what future stories I had in mind. I already had three books out on the market with one more on the way. I was on a creative roll and struggling to figure out which story to write first. I casually mentioned Palace Hills and summarized it for my BFF. Her response? “WHY HAVEN’T YOU WRITTEN IT YET, WOMAN? The story is perfect! Write it now!” That was when, after eight years of procrastination, I finally penned Palace Hills. It was a very long journey to get to this point, but I am so proud of the end result. Not only is it one of my favorite stories, it is also the novel that helped me land my publisher, Limitless Publishing. Who would have thought that 8 years later I’d finally see one of my very first stories finally in print? It’s true; good things really come to those who wait.

"My name is Rylee and I am a Tracker."

The clock is ticking and I can feel the weight of the final battle with the demon hordes looming over my head. The puzzle pieces are becoming clearer, but the casualty list is growing. And with each name that is added to those we've lost, my confidence cracks a little more.

Yet there is hope.

A child saved.

A life lost.

 A prophecy fulfilled.

“You don’t think that all of the disasters that humanity has faced were all natural, do you? The bubonic plague is a good example. It was blamed on a number of things. Rats, the Jewish people, punishment from God. It all led to a cleansing of anything unusual. Mostly supernaturals, who were trying to blend in, and in that process the humans wiped out many of their best defenders against the demon population, which then went on to spread the plague across the world. But that is just one example.”

“What was the point though, wouldn’t the demons have wanted people to be alive so they could possess them?” Liam asked. 

Erik gave a ruthful smile. “Yes and no. The bubonic plague wasn’t so much about killing people off, as it was infecting them. Making them weak and easier to possess. The plague compromised their immune systems, allowing them to be taken over. Especially the young.”

Something about what Erik said sent a twang through my brain. I struggled to put the pieces together that floated just out of reach. Damn it. Liam touched my arm. “What?”

I closed my eyes and pressed my palms into them, blocking out any light. “Just let me think for a minute.”

The feel of the night air and the sound of the fountain filled my ears as I looked at the pieces one by one. 

Demons escaped in London who bred fast.

Minor supernaturals were being possessed by lesser demons and evil spirits.

Packs of Orion’s demons were free to cause chaos.

The only thing we were missing was a plague and then Orion would have access to all the young people he wanted. The urge to vomit swelled up through my stomach and burned the back of my throat. 

“Children are normally hard to possess, aren’t they?” That was why it had taken a full pentagram when the black coven was trying to have India possessed so many months ago. At least, that was what I understood. 

Bert bobbed his head. “Yes, it can be very difficult to possess a child. There is a natural protection over the young when it comes to demons, something the elementals put into play.” He grimaced as he said ‘elemental’ and again I wondered at these particular supernaturals that I’d only just been hearing about. “But when the small humans are ill, that protection goes into keeping them alive, rather than keeping them from being possessed.”

Feeling like a bully, but not really caring, I leaned in to Bert. “How did the bubonic plague really start?”

An interesting thing happened. Bert paled and shook his head. “I can’t tell you.”

My eyebrows shot up and I glanced at Erik. “You want to make him talk, or do you want me to make him talk?”

Erik shrugged. “Either way is fine. I haven’t interrogated a demon in years. I’ve missed it.”

Bert paled even more and his lower lip trembled. “I can’t tell you. I can’t. Tracker, Slayer both of you have to trust me. Please.”

“Begging will get you nowhere, little demon.” Erik growled. He had a short, serrated knife in his hand that he’d pulled from somewhere within his robes. It was curved, like a skinning knife, and if it hadn’t been for the rough edges that’s what I would have called it.

“Track demons and evil spirits.” Bert blurted out as he fell to his knees. “Proof I am on your side. Track them; you’ll see it isn’t me fooling you.”

Erik paused and looked over at me. “Up to you. Personally, I’d just as soon dice him up.”

“Fuck, why not, Tracking will take me two seconds.” I grumbled. 

I send out a thread to Track demons as a whole, paired with a thread for evil spirits, just to satisfy—

Holy. Fucking. Hell.

I swayed on my feet and went to one knee, the overwhelming wash of pings I got back seriously making me re-think getting out of bed the day before. 

We were surrounded by Orion’s minions. 

Hundreds of them.
