F is for Faux City


Faux City is a walled city oasis in the middle of the desert. The citizens are said to never go beyond the walls and are protected by Bane: God of Gore. Life in Faux City is structured but still a lot of fun. Holidays are highly celebrated including Sacrifice Day when they give thanks to those who will give their lives as human sacrifices during the night.

But this time things don't go as planned and the city rises in a panic. One of the sacrifices has escaped and fear of their god's wrath only grows. Will Faux City fall to the wrath of Bane if Deidra isn't returned? Or will their fears be proved nothing but superstition? Find out when Sacrifice Her comes out later this year.

  3. Guess that's why venturing beyond the walls is dangerous if the city is in the middle of the desert.

  5. That sounds like a very interesting setting. It has a "Logan's Run" sort of feel to it.

  7. That's a great introduction to your new book. It grabs you from the beautiful picture, the the mystique of a hidden civilization that may not be so civilized.

  16. Faux City sounds like a fascinating place. Is it on Earth? or some planet of your own invention? If it's on Earth, I'd love to know the circumstances of how it came about.
