Dear SciFi fans,
I’d like to begin by thanking everyone who tunes in to my blogs; whether this one or my other at https://jairelandsesla.wordpress.com/. I’d also like to thank everyone who has read one or all of my books; I hope you’ve enjoyed them.
It has been a joy to create Maxx Zeqster and Sesla…The Enchanted Planet, and a pleasure to write my Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases series.
It is an honor to have occasional novel giveaway days when I offer free downloads of my books. Soon, I’ll offer The Dunjyn Asylum Escape for a day of free downloads. Stay tuned to my blogs for the exact day.
Here’s an excerpt from my book; Rydon Nekuma, the sailor and Pirtt-Coterie is ill and has admitted himself into the hospital at Tos-Xiron—the sea village on Sesla.
Morning; Thirteen Days Ago
Dr. Zewio entered Rydon Nekuma’s room. “How are you feeling?” he asked as he reviewed the charts.
Rydon painfully replied from his hospital bed, “A little better. Last night was scary. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.”
Dr. Zewio replied, “Your fever was very high last night. It is lower today. How is your rash? Let me have a look.” He rolled back Rydon’s blanket. “Your rash is a little better. It isn’t as red as was reported last night. It seems to cover both of your hands, arms, and much of your torso.” He paused to check the charts again. “How did you acquire doxer fever?” he asked.
Rydon was shocked as he stated, “That’s impossible! I don’t have doxer fever.” Suddenly he remembered the storm. “While being distracted by a storm and my financial concerns, I unloaded the fish and doxers from my boat without my gloves. The doxer’s ridged dorsal fins stabbed me several times on both of my hands. I didn’t even notice. I was so distracted,” he said as a panic began. He looked at Dr. Zewio with horror. “Am I going to mutate?” he asked as he trembled.
Dr. Zewio replied, “At this point, I couldn’t say. Doxer fever is a little different for each patient. When did you encounter the doxers?”
Rydon replied as he trembled from fear, “Maybe two weeks ago. I’m not really sure.”
Dr. Zewio was surprised as he replied, “Usually the doxer’s venom reacts much faster than that. With many victims, it’s instantaneous. Your symptoms are developing much slower than usual.”
Rydon replied as he trembled, “I had a small case of doxer fever once before. I only got a small rash. It was nothing.”
“That could explain it. You might have some resistance to the doxer’s venom,” he said with hope.
Rydon looked hopeful as well. “Do you think that will help? Do you think that will stop me from mutating?” he asked as he trembled.
Dr. Zewio responded, “Only time will tell. For now, I’m going to keep you one more day and continue with the medications that I have you on. Your symptoms should go into remission, at least for a while. Again, only time will tell.”
Terror gripped him as he said, “You mean, I’m going to be sick again?”
Dr. Zewio replied, “I’m afraid that’s the nature of doxer fever. The symptoms seem to repeat. We will get you feeling better and send you home.” He quickly exited the room.
Instantly, he recalled Lyndi’s doxer fever. He thought, “Her condition has slowly progressed to the point that she is in Dunjyn Asylum.” He was horrified. He began to imagine and fear the horrific possibilities of his mutations…
What kind of situation is Rydon in? What is doxer fever? Just how disgusting is a doxer fever asylum? Read my books and see.
My giveaway is in a few days. Stay tuned to my blogs and twitter for the exact day. Thanks for tuning in. J. A. Ireland.
