The A to Z Blogging Challenge is underway!
Here at Untethered Realms, we're taking on the Challenge as a group. Each day, one of us will share a fantastical creature that may be from one of our books, a favorite movie, or something we came up with as entertainment.
R is for REDS!
What are Reds? They’re creatures that I made up for my futuristic thriller, Ruby’s Fire. It takes place on a very changed earth in 2099, at a boarding school for homeless teens. The school is located in Skull's Wrath, in the middle of a vast desert.
I won’t say exactly what Reds are comprised of, but I will say that Thorn, the youngest kid, makes a Red for a competition that will hopefully bring he and his sister, Ruby badly needed cash. I’m also an illustrator, and here's a black and white picture I did of the Reds. The amazing digital illustrator, Jay Montgomery, created the color image for my Ruby’s Fire cover, and here's Ruby with one of the Reds.
Want to guess what a Red is made up of? Fire away—except for those people who have already read Ruby’s Fire and know! I'll tell you if you’re warm, but I won’t tell you exactly what the Red is. For that, you’ll have to read the book.
