The Leaves Will Fall


A collective rustle vibrated through the trees. Isaac opened his eyes to watch the Darkening.

A great breath – not wind, but an exhale that from the trees themselves – blew through the woods. The leaves began to quiver, their light shimmering and flickering, and in one instantaneous moment, they fell. The light dissolved into darkness as they fluttered to the ground. It only lasted a few moments, and soon the world around them had sunk into darkness.

The Darkening was complete.

SALEAmazon put all three of my paperbacks on sale! If you’re a hard-copy-turn-the-pages-and-smell-the-paper kind of reader, this is a great time to pick up my books. Normally they’re 18.99, but Amazon has dropped the prices to:

HANNA, HANNA, ONE-and-TWO: $14.01 One reviewer said, “Shafer gives the reader touchstones that will spark the consciousness of a younger generation in her work. This is going to be that work that a young reader will read again and again well into their elder years.”

SHRILUGH, Book One of the Shrilugh Saga: $17.09 One reviewer said, “Shrilugh evokes a lot of emotion during the course of the book and even though there’s tragedy, there’s also triumph and love.”

THE DARKENING, Book Two of the Shrilugh Saga: $15.66 One reviewer said, “Shafer’s characters are cleverly drawn and very likable. The plot really moves. It was necessary for me to put the book down at times just to let my intellect and emotions catch up!”
