Oracle 3: 2nd draft excerpt

July 12, 2016

– May contain spoilers for Oracle 1 and 2 –


“Stop squirming,” I said. “This is what you came here for.”

“It tickles.”

I snorted. “Your life is fraught with inconvenience.”

Henry chuckled, causing his chest to shift underneath my careful henna application. Again.

“Don’t make me hurt you,” I snarled, only half-joking.

“I bet you say that to all the sorcerers.”

“Only the good guys.”

“I’m not sure you’re the best judge of that, Rochelle.”

“Yeah?” I kept my attention glued to the fine line I was adding to the henna design on Henry’s chest. “And what does that say about you?”

Henry didn’t answer. I flicked my gaze from his pale-skinned left pec to his piercing cobalt blue eyes, countering his judgemental silence with a sneer. He broke eye contact with me almost immediately.

I didn’t blame him. I wouldn’t want to be gazing into the weird light-gray eyes of a diminutive oracle either.

      Just a quick glimpse. 🙂 The Oracle Series isn’t as quippy as the Dowser Series, so I have to share larger sections to give readers a proper taste. I wish I could write all the books faster!!

    Sooo, excited for Oracle 3!

    quick question for you Meghan?! How can I order all of the Dowser and Oracle in actual book form? Also, are they only paper back? I ask because when I find a series and an Author I love, I like to get all the books to add too my library collection 🙂

    Again…very excited for Oracle 3!

      Sorry, Jamie. My spam filter caught you. 🙁 it’s been doing a few wonky things since I upgraded the site. The Dowser and Oracle books are only in paperback. Not hardcover. I have links to the right of this page under each cover image, but they are available on Createspace, Amazon, and B&N. Not Kobo though (just the ebooks there). I don’t sell them autographed myself. Once they are shipped to me, then shipped out again a $11-$14 paperback is more like $20. Someday if I figure out how to do that more cost effectively, I’ll give it a try. Thanks for asking!!
