Excerpts from Stacia Kane’s Downside #4


In an effort to cheer herself and the other masses who have some sort of flu/cold/strep throat nonsense going on (myself included), Stacia Kane decided to tease us with a few lines from the fourth Downside novel yesterday afternoon. In case you missed her 2 p.m. tweets:

“This was the one time she didn’t worry about how long she had, how he really felt, what she was going to do to fuck it all up. “

“Being there was like being inside the belly of some hideous beast, digesting her bit by slow bit.”

“Just hearing his voice made her smile, despite that mean little voice in her head telling her not to get too fucking comfortable.”

“[Chess’s] triumphant little smile was genuine. So was her irritation. How shitty some people got when they thought they were important.”

“Giving a fuck what other people thought was a road straight to misery and pain; an obsession of the weak…. To believe otherwise was to live in a fairy tale.”

“His mouth on hers, the kind of insistent kiss she knew well. The kind that made her blood race through her veins until it found a good place to stop, that made her clutch at him harder than she meant to.”

Stacia’s still working on the book’s first draft, and it doesn’t have a title yet, but soon. Oh soon. Also, I won a contest and there will be a character with my name in this one. She won’t tell me what though. Murder victim? Another churchwitch? Lex’s new girlfriend? Oh the possibilities are endless. OK, that last one isn’t too likely.

Want to offer up any guesses?

Also, guesses on what will happen to Chess, Terrible, Lex and the Church in Downside 4 are allowed, too.

We’ll keep track of new updates on Downside, of course, but you’re also encouraged to follow Stacia’s blog. Great for writer types as well as fans of her Downside Ghosts and Personal Demons books.
