Forbidden Basement Pt. II

First, let me preface this by saying that I have had a lot going on lately and offer my apologies for making my readers wait so long to read the second half of the story.  I meant to get it online two weeks ago but never got around to it.

But the good news… here it is!  It’s really more like the last 4/5 of the story because it is so much longer than I intended.  So thank you for reading and I hope the lengthy cliffhanger was worth it when you read the rest.  Enjoy!

“Forbidden Basement” (continued) by Sabrina Buie

Harper pulled her long cardigan tight around her and kept her arms crossed as she stared into the dark abyss of the basement.  She could see the faint glow of muddled sunlight coming in through a small window somewhere down there.  A few stairs down there was an old dusty light switch.  She stepped cautiously down to the third step and reached out to flip the switch.  It made a light click, but nothing happened.  She flipped it off and on again a couple more times.  Still nothing.  The moonlight streaming into the basement was not comfort enough for her to venture any further into the dark, dank basement so she backtracked quickly up the stairs and closed the door behind her.  Continue reading “Forbidden Basement Pt. II”


NaNoWriMo Time!

It’s that time of year again.  NaNoWriMo time!  The creative writer in me is drawn to this every year and yet, it is so hard to find the time to actually sit down and participate.  For instance, this morning I should have been reading The House of Mirth for class this evening.  Did I do that?  No.  Instead, I decided to spend that time contributing to my NaNoWriMo word count.  Was that the best decision for my time?  Definitely not.  I should have spent that time reading for class.  But the creative writer in my was screaming for attention and demanded that I put some words on the page…so I did.  I’m not one bit mad about it either.

The Demon Cycle series by Peter V. Brett

Peter V. Brett is currently involved in writing a series of books that I thoroughly enjoy called the Demon Cycle series: The Warded Man, The Desert Spear, The Daylight War, The Skull Throne, and The Core.

I’m currently reading The Skull Throne and should be finished soon, but I wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts on Brett’s series and possibly inspire some readers to check it out.


Arlen Bales, a man from the Hollow, lives in a world where demons rise up from the Core and terrorize the world’s population every night from sunset to day break.  The only defense against the demons are wards and individual common sense: go beyond the wards at night and suffer the gruesome consequences.
