“Oh, I do agree, Master. Vaclava and Yaen came here with me. They are on my side, you know. I can work with them in convincing Fatimah to side with us, and together we can soften Sonny’s heart. I think you have this in the bag, Tobias!”
“Excellent! You are truly unparalleled, wonderful Jemma! At first, it seemed that you might feel some resentment at being forced to choose your form, but now that I see your zeal to do my bidding, my heart is filled with incomparable joy!”

This conversation is taking place between Tobias Walton, a vampire and the unscrupulous president of the mysterious Xquenda Industries, and Jemma, an extraterrestrial shapeshifter from the planet Gamma Iridon. Tobias has forced Jemma to take the form of Felice Navidad, Queen of the Frost Elementals.

I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
