Golden Tower Series (The Detective) - Chapter 1

Moon of my Heart

M

Moon of my Heart

When I reflect on her, I think of the Moon. So alive and filled with magic, never too bright, or too dim, she hangs in my night's sky like a beacon, showing me the truth of myself, To gaze upon her is to dream endlessly of her touch, yet remain a million stars apart. She is neither here, nor there, flitting effortlessly across my heart, like a wayward ship upon a glass ocean. And I will love her till the End

Comfort in the Past

Comfort in the Past

        Comfort in the Past        I promised myself I'd never go back to the sun-dappled clearing in the woods, just east of Larringdale.  Yet, here I was, walking towards it as if nothing had ever happened.  I wasn't nervous because the forest surrounding it was dangerous, or forbidden; it was just that my heart wasn’t ready to remember her. Being near it tore at my insides, reminding me of a past so painful and raw that it hurt to think about.  But I couldn't run from it any longer than I could the passing of time.  It was a part of who I was, a law of sorts, and I needed to accept it. That was why I'd come back here.  To remember,

It's this stupid war *crackles* we might get attacked soon, can you believe that?  I’m scared, I thought I would be safe here, but now...  Look, I don’t know if you’ll get this or not, but I miss you, and... *Security guard yelling*. Ok, ok, I'll finish, geez.  Sam, just come *crackles*  You were right...about everything."        I stepped back from the control room's console and with the sleeve of my jacket, wiped the tears from my eyes as I looked away from the screen, unwilling to meet her static gaze. "Forgive me, Lira."        "There's

Memoirs of an Elemental - Chapter 19

  Chapter 19 – The Betrayal        I awoke with a jolt; surrounded by a cold, damp darkness.  Despite having been asleep, my mind and body felt strangely awake, as if in reality, I’d not been sleeping at all.  I glanced around and noticed strange glowing white crystals embedded in the walls around me.  Wait, walls? The last thing I remembered was sitting on a hill with Lilith, waiting for someone.  There was more, of course, the memory was clouded but the more I focused on it, the brighter it became in my mind.  She’d shown me something…a flower.  That’s right, now I was starting to remember everything!  She

The Girl and the Mirror

The Girl and the Mirror

The Girl and the Mirror        Ariadne was a special type of girl, the sort that wasn’t content with just living in the norm.  You see, deep within her heart, she was an adventurer.  With every beat, it begged her to go out and explore, to see what was out there beyond the window of her room.  Ever since she could walk, she just loved to wander off out of sight from her parents, to explore the world.  But the world wasn’t big enough for her, it knew that, and so did she.        I suppose it was fate really, that she stumbled upon the tiny, out of the way antique shop, whilst walking home with her mother, one warm summer's after

"I need to know, are you a dog or cat person?" Kate asked, hoping against all odds that it was the latter. "Woof," barked the Labrador.

Lost in Limbo

        Even in death, Jack loved her, searching Limbo for any sign of his soul mate, forever chasing what no longer existed.  Day after day, he climbed mountains and navigated insidious traps, placed there by others lost to the mist.  Despite never finding her, Jack refused to give up his search, spurred on by that primal urge to finally find a glimpse of happiness in a world full of nothing.        Then, one day, he stumbled across a serene clearing, motes of golden light cascading down from above.  It was peaceful; devoid of the turmoil he'd been used to...it didn't belong.  Yet he felt something as the light touched his skin, a warmth s

My Bio
Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name's Mark, I pretty much spend all my time writing fiction stories (Fantasy and Sci-Fi) as well as creating whimsical Poems. I've been writing for over 8 years, and I'm currently in the final stages of editing a teen fiction fantasy novel, prior to seeking publication. If you've had a look around (which I encourage you to do so, if you haven't already), then you'll likely have noticed my weekly running story "Memoirs of an Elemental" (I know, I know...Its a bit of a mouthful). Anyway...every Thursday I deliver another chapter for everyone on here to read. It's a fantasy story with delightful bouts of action, romance and of course, elementals! (Honestly, what is not to love about that eh?) A word of advice though, read chapter 1 first! (Seriously, who jumps straight into chapter 3? No wonder you're confused about what's going on).

Also, in my spare time (Haha, spare time....that's a cute notion) I dabble with photography. Oh who am I kidding, I say I dabble but I bought a Cannon 500D a few years back, so I guess its more serious than mere dabbling (now that i'm reading this, dabble is a funny word when used consecutively) OK, back on track because I'm aware I'm now waffling. So photography, yes, so...I focus mainly on nature, landscapes and Macro photography. Although, I'd love to learn how to take portraits and personal photos of people.

I am up for working on commissions and collaborations. Perhaps you're an artist who is seeking someone to help write a story for your comic, or you need someone to create a poem. Whatever it is, give me a shout and I'm sure I can help you out (oh look, it rhymes!). I am also happy to do Critiques and offer writing and photography advice, so don't be shy!

You're welcome. You nabbed yourself a watch as well. 

Your flexible lit style reminds me of myself and what I enjoy doing. I look forward to reading your other stuff and hopefully having some nice chats about it. :)
Thanks!

I've read that you are about to finish a novel. Congrats on that! (I'll hopefully finish my first novel in the next months. It's very exciting. Nod )
