  11. Gosh Julie - that really calls me in - not sure about the screams and burning body - but great photo and quote from your book .. must read them .. cheers Hilary

  12. @Birgit, it was definitely gruesome. Thanks!

    @Mary, I hope you will like it, thanks so much.

    @Stephanie, oh, thank you!

    @Hilary, I'm scared to death of fire so I don't know why I wrote this, it creeps me out LOL. Thank you!

  13. That was one supercharged excerpt! Made me shrink back a bit.

  14. Yikes, what an excerpt. What a horrible thing to experience or even to watch. I don't know how people used to watch the burning of witches. . .

  15. Sounds terrifying. My kind of read!!! LOL.

  16. Sounds terrifying. My kind of read!!! LOL.

  17. I have to admit, I recoiled, flinched, and grimaced reading those scenes. Well Done, Julie!!!!!

  18. @Lee, I'm sorry it made you shrink back but glad it did too! Thanks.

    @Kate, thanks!

    @DG, yeah, it's impossible to imagine. Of all the ways to die, that has to be one of the worst and most terrifying.

    @Catherine, yay, thanks!

    @Donna, thank you!

    @Cathrina, thanks so much. :)

    @TF, thanks!

  19. Great details with the roar of the fire eclipsing the screams and the sparks in the sky.
