Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 38: Settling In

Derwen’s cries attracted the attention of a few people around them, and they started making enough noise that Ginny came over and told Derwen she’d done a good job. Darcy, on Derwen’s other side, was smiling a little, but her shoulders slumped. Edie caught Darcy’s eye and rolled her own eyes toward the ceiling. Darcy’s smile widened.

“Sarah,” Ginny said, speaking loudly enough that the whole class could hear her, “while I’m pleased that you’ve caught on so quickly, remember that this is almost as much luck as it is ability. The more magic you have available to you, the easier it will be to reach your magic and start something.

Book 2: Initiates–Now at Smashwords

Book 2: Initiates joins New Student Orientation as an ebook available at Smashwords! Like Book 1, it’s available pay-as-you-wish, so you can get it for free or pay as much as you’d care to.

I see at least one person has already found it and downloaded it immediately–before I even knew it was live! If you’re reading, thank you! 🙂

I also plan to do some work on the website in the next couple of weeks, so if things look very, very different… don’t panic! I haven’t been able to find a theme or plugin that will allow me to link only to the next and previous chapters, so I’ve decided the next and previous post links will do, and have given up. However, the website’s look could really use a refresh anyway, so I’m getting some graphic design work done and hopefully the site will be very pretty when everything is put together!

The January story, “The Monsters,” is available now, exclusively for patrons!

Bennet’s parents came into her room. She looked up from her comic book and stood. They looked serious, dressed all in gray as they did for raids. She wondered why they were coming to talk to her now. She’d been old enough to stay home alone during raids for a few years now, trusted enough to give the appropriate lies to any police who might come to the door.

Though they hardly ever did.

“Bennet, we have a raid tonight,” her father began.

She gave a short nod. “I know.”

“Well, you’re eighteen,” her mother said. “We think you’re old enough now to come with us. Would you like to?”
