Child of the Kaites: Chapter 46

Merry Christmas! I know, I'm late. I'm sorry about that, and sorry for making you wait for this. Life sometimes moves too quickly, then I realize that it's already Thursday and I missed posting on Monday. If it's any consolation, you'll probably be glad that you didn't get this chapter on Christmas to ruin the … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 46

Child of the Kaites: Chapter 41

Friends, I plotted out the chapters, I did the math, I counted twice. After this chapter, there are only SIX MORE IN THE BOOK!!! I'll definitely be finished writing by Christmas (if it is God's will), and you should have regular, weekly posts until the end! We jangle and clank into camp, startling the axex. … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 41

Child of the Kaites: Chapter 38

Thank you for your patience last week! Teaching can be time-consuming, as wonderful as it is. Also, I'm working on a super secret project (more details coming in future weeks 😉 ). All of this has meant, sadly, a little less time to write, and this chapter was difficult to write in its own right. … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 38

Child of the Kaites: Chapter 37

I apologize for the tardiness of today's update.  Technically, it is still Monday.  Hopefully the length of the chapter will make it up to you. “We’re coming with you this time,” Forziel declares before my eyes are fully open. “What?”  The question comes out garbled, my throat dry from breathing the moisture-free air all night. … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 37

Child of the Kaites Chapter 21 | Beth Wangler

Sorry it's a bit late today! Hopefully it is worth the wait. Find previous chapters here. Deep buzzing builds slowly.  At first, it’s like a hundred hornets far off.  I hear it between footfalls, since the thud of my feet as I run drowns it out with each step. But it keeps getting louder. “Don’t … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 21

Child of the Kaites Chapter 20 | Beth Wangler

And we're back!! Or, more accurately, I'm back.  School is over for the summer, so we're going back to a chapter a week! If you need a refresher on previous chapters, or if you're just joining us, you can find the table of contents here. Elesekk is dead. It doesn’t make sense. A moment ago, … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 20

Child of the Kaites Chapter 19 | Beth Wangler

A few months ago, I made the daunting decision to join the world of Twitter.  I thought this would be a painful chore that I had to do if I wanted to "build an author platform" (aka ever get more than my mom to read my stories).  Full of trepidation, I dipped my toe into … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 19

Child of the Kaites Chapter 13 | Beth Wangler

Sorry this one is so late today!  My sister got engaged yesterday (yay!!!!!!!!), so I got way too little sleep and topped it off with a really challenging day of substitute teaching.  It took a lot of salsa and tea (my comfort foods), but I finally managed to get this ready for you. If you … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 13

Child of the Kaites: Chapter 3

Find Chapter 1 here and Chapter 2 here. After taking my time changing into dry clothes, I select some yellow thread and return to the parlor.  I slip into my rocking chair, thankful that I do not catch Tatanda’s attention.  He hates it when his children or I disturb his conversation with guests. I missed … Continue reading Child of the Kaites: Chapter 3
