Chapter Seventeen is now up on Wattpad. While there's a bit of background information in this chapter and a little more mother bothers for Bennie, the primary focus of it is simply comic relief, and a little bonding time for Bennie with her new friends. Everyone needs a break, and that includes us in the real world, who have dark messes to deal with just like Bennie, but no superpowers. I hope my book helps you get a little break, and a few laughs.
Some backstory on this chapter:
Like Bennie, I never played video or computer games. I still don't, partly because of the time involved, and also, a lot of them I can't even look at--the animation messes with my eyes. But also like Bennie, I did actually sit down with a buddy of mine and played a computer game (one guess which game) so I would have a real experience to derive the scene from. Everything that happens during Bennie's afternoon is based off the shenanigans we got up to during mine..
That, my friends, is called research. And it can be fun! You can't write what you don't know, right?
Don't forget you can now purchase Shadowchild in whole via your preferred platform (links are available on my Books page). If you like it, please rate and review, or give a copy to a friend for the holidays!
