#BookBlitz #Giveaway: 'Soul in Ashes: Out of the Past' by Sauna E. Black

When Shauna E. Black was a young teen, her

English teacher made the mistake of offering extra credit for original short

stories, and was suddenly swamped with Shauna’s writing. Dutifully reading each

story (at least, she wrote encouraging things in the margins), this teacher inspired

Shauna to follow her dreams, leaving her with a warm spot in her heart for all

English teachers.

Today, Shauna still keeps a box in the attic full

of early manuscripts, most written in pencil on lined paper. She lives in the

high desert of the southwest with her husband and four children. On springtime

hiking adventures to the many Ancestral Puebloan ruins near her home, she finds

inspiration for her writing. She also likes to experiment in the kitchen, perform

in local singing groups, and travel to exotic locations to collect wind chimes.

 Snippet Time!! 


escort that boy to safety,”

Ghalad said.


I yelled as a soldier moved toward

the boy.


the boy’s expression shifted.

His skin took on a waxy appearance, like a candle held too long

near the fire.

He grew, shooting up until his head nearly touched the ceiling.

He was now

easily twice as tall as Talorc. His body became blackened wood.

Muscles exploded

under sharp thorns that jutted out along his limbs and around

his head. … where

its mouth should have been was a hollow cavity that held a

glowing red coal.


anyone could react, the golem

grabbed the nearest soldier in massive hands of gnarled wood and

lifted him up.

The man screamed and hacked at the golem’s hand as he neared its

face. The scream

petered out. The man struggled and gasped for breath. When he

came close to the

golem’s face, a blast of hot air blew from the coal in the

golem’s mouth and

enveloped the soldier. His body exploded into ashes.
