Soothsayer Ch. 12, Pt. 2 + announcements

Notes: Oh wow, guys! First off, thank you to everyone who commented on Dando Bola going live, I will reply to each and every one of you as soon as I can. Spanish isn't a language I'm very good at, so this takes me some time but I'll get there. Also, the Cody/Ten vignette is being written as we speak, but taking some time. It's coming though!

Secondly, I have tentatively got a new release scheduled with Riptide. Yes! That villain story I posted an excerpt of a long time ago? With the bomber and the guy working at the bank? Yeah, that's the one. This is awesome because I love that story and I really wanted another release with Riptide. Depending on how quickly I get through the edits (and there will be a LOT) it could be out as soon as April. Which is so soon, oh my god.

Thirdly, here's more Soothsayer! We're setting up for a massive confrontation, I'm loving it :)

Title: Soothsayer Chapter 12, Part 2.


“The path to success is to take massive, determined action.” – Tony Robbins

                Sören didn’t talk to me at all after that, even though I couldn’t stop asking him if he was all right. It had to have been a terrifying thing for him, to be swallowed up by a greater force than he himself was. Like Jonah and the whale, only the whale was just as smart as Jonah and they both knew it. Hell, I’d have been scared under the circumstances. I had been scared just watching it.

Bobby was kind of a bastard, but I took his meaning. Sören wasn’t a big fish in America. I needed to find him somewhere to put down roots—literally and figuratively—that wouldn’t chew him up and spit him out. If I couldn’t do that, then honestly I wouldn’t blame Sören for not wanting to stick with me, because everyone needed a home. Just because I didn’t know exactly where mine was didn’t mean Sören had to suffer along with me. Fortunately, I knew someone in the oil business that I could talk to about that.



  1. Ooh wonderful! Roger to the rescue lol!
    Maybe their seer saw the "Welcome to Santa Rosa" sign as they drove in? Ha!
    Overused or tapped out land could mean a strip mine. Or gold mine even. But a strip mine would have water, and plenty of space for Sören's land. Just a thought.
    Love this story! Definitely keeps me wonderin what's gonna happen next! Thank you Cari!


    1. Maybe it is that simple, Scotty :) You can't be too careful around seers! Glad you're still wondering, things are going to move pretty quickly from here on out.

  2. I'm really loving this.You've actually got me feeling sorry for Soren! I mean, I love a good baddie, but I don't usually feel sorry for them :-)

    1. Mission accomplished! He's bad, but he's also...kind of hapless? something of a pawn? It can be hard not to commiserate.

  3. Noooo! You can't leave us hangin' there.

    I do feel bad sorry Soren too. I don't think of him as a bad guy though. He's a child with power. Well not Soren, but the "landeater". When he wouldn't put his feet down I giggled out loud. So much fun, thanks Cari. Oh yeah, no 🌋 's for Soren.

    1. I have to! But there will be answers next time around, and lots of, well...you know me. Probably gunfire at the very least.

      Soren is a dichotomous character, it's part of what I like about him. Glad you're enjoying it! Also, this might interest you--I talked to DSP, and they're interested in this story once it's complete, so! It might actually see the greater light of day once it's done. Which would be so awesome.

    2. Hey, that's great news about DSP - can't wait for a copy on my Kindle :-)
