Earlier this summer I self-published The Archetypes-First Generation. I am supposed to be editing Miss Peculiar's Haunting Tales, Volume III which I transferred from my netbook to my new notebook for that purpose last night. I did manage to get the first story edited. But then John got the main computer working after a lengthy struggle with it, so I was able to rescue some material off of that.
Too many distractions today.
What I ended up doing is editing the second Archetypes novel set four years later when Amanda and Beans' son Tiger is nearly five and they have a little daughter, Raven who is tragically killed. Continuing from the first novel, the Renfield family Scarlett Rex's family) is still out to eliminate the Rex family, and they nearly succeed in killing Scarlett, Amanda,, Tiger, Raven, Ariana, Pierce and Barthelemy (Simon and Ariana's toddler son). Ami and Beans are still struggling to unravel the web of deceit and lies her father wove in his brilliant madness. New shockwaves rock the Rex family in this novel that finds Beans on the edge of losing it, Ami and Benny's marriage suffering under duress, Ariana still lusting after Beans to the point she endangers her youngest son's life, a Renfield infiltrating the Rex family compound, Thaddeus and Scarlett Rex agreeing that Scarlett can carry a baby for Ami and Beans who desperately want another child but cannot have one themselves. There are time bombs ticking as Amanda frantically works to save the family that she is now a member of and has come to think of as her true family. Then the final shockwave hits them- are they strong enough to survive this ultimate threat?
