By Popular Demand: A Short NEMESIS Teaser

NEMESIS The planet is facing destruction, and there’s nothing Min can do about it. But she’s got more immediate problems — like the man who shows up every two years to murder her. On her sixteenth birthday, as she cowers behind her bedroom door, Min wonders, why must she die so many times? What can she do to stop it? Noah just wants to be like everyone else. But he’s not. He’s crazy, and always will be. Horrible waking nightmares of murder and death plague him, though he does his best to hide the signs. But when Noah’s idyllic mountain town begins to spiral toward panic and destruction, is there a chance within the chaos for him to become something more? More Details Coming Soon!
