WIP it Real Good: Urban fantasy author Sarah Lampkin + giveaway

Between working a full-time software job, taking care of my crazy pack (Emer and Fox), and working on the Dead Dreamer finale and audiobooks…my life is absolutely insane. The only way I get through it is with my Irish whiskey. However, a while back, I wrote a short story on Wattpad dealing with schizophrenia and the Welsh myth Blodeuwedd. It was pretty well received so I’m going back to it when I have time and transforming it into a full-fledged book instead of just a short story.

“Through the bite of the winter air, my thumb played with the neon blue release in my bare left hand. Though the winter chill bit at my skin, the feeling of another layer over my hands bothered me. I wanted to feel the Evolve bow against my palm. The cold metal resting against my fingers eased the headache that had been forming.”
WHEN BLOOD SPEAKS is a murder-mystery surrounding a woman living in her cabin in the mountains, who discovers the naked body of a man frozen in the frozen mountain snow while archery hunting. As the investigation continues, strange things begin to surround her. But the question remains throughout: Is this all happening in her head, or is it truly happening?

As a hunter, I’m pulling from my own experience with this story. Having grown up near my great-aunt, I’m also pulling from her experience with schizophrenia and the ways she handled it. Of course, this is fiction and a murder-mystery story, so it’s not true to life…not completely anyway. But having the experiences I’ve had in my life, I’m excited to try something new that isn’t young adult, or fantasy. It’s a new world of writing for me and something that can help me grow as an author.

I’m not sure when this story will be complete. But I can’t wait to share this whole new world with everyone.
“Gulping back any fear, I took another step forward to try and see what was in the hole. My body jerked backward as I fell. My hand tightened on the grip of my bow, an attempt to hold back a scream. Sticking out from layers of snow, lying on the ground was a hand. A frozen hand.”
