about me

Many thanks to those who supported Deshay of the Woods on its way to the Editor's Desk! I have a sequel in the works, but I'm tabling that to work on another novel project called Leech (the first batch of chapters are featured here).

The covers for Leech and Deshay of the Woods were created by yours truly.

Agents and publishers interested in discussing my book can contact me at: phil_the_love@yahoo.com.

Leech

Phil Partington

A mysterious stone falls from the sky and a voice shares secret technologies enabling the city to thrive. But such power doesn't come without cost.


Plague and nuclear war have emaciated the earth leaving the planet as a wasteland called the Unlivable Space. A dark stone falls from the sky and speaks only to the man who finds it, sharing technological secrets unknown to the world—secrets which enable his city to thrive amidst the chaos. Among the new creations is a machine which grants The Elect—the society’s privileged class—special powers, as well as the ability to breed a mutant class to serve him and his followers.

But a clan of Muties living in the sewers are planning a rebellion and have created a special device of their own, called Leech, which enables them to harness temporarily the power of The Elect. Twin Muties, Ash and Milt, are drawn into the conflict when Ash is wrongfully accused of murder and sentenced to death.

 

The Siren's Lyric (Formerly De....

Phil Partington

When a witch seduces Matthew by assuming the form of the girl he loves, Alexandra must fight for him—as well as her own survival.


Alexandra Brim is bitter, and who wouldn’t be? She lost her mother as an infant, grew up under persecution for being magi and has been living in solitude with only her father and pet raven as company. To make matters worse, Father is sending her back to Lott’s Vale eight years later to care for her insane uncle. Yet what she dreads most about going back is facing Matthew—the boy she left without even a goodbye. The boy she never stopped loving.

Life doesn’t get any better once she arrives. When Matthew rejects her advances, she finds release for her stress in the unhealthiest of ways: by casting mischievous spells about the town in secret.

Though childish, these pranks are mostly harmless. But something lurks beyond the town walls—a Siren has been seducing men to carry out her underhanded errands, and suddenly Alex’s harmless mischief is damning evidence against her. As she fends off suspicion from the townsfolk, the Siren claims Matthew as her latest victim and learns about his lingering feelings for Alex.

Now she wants the girl dead in the strangest of love triangles gone wrong.

Hi Josef, Thought I’d swing by and check out your work. As always, below are some findings/feedback—they are, of course, my humblest opinions so take them for whatever they’re worth. Chapter 1 - Why are “Opinions” and “Ideas” capitalized? They aren’t proper nouns or anything like it. - The for... view book

Hi Artorious, I thought I’d stop by to check out your novel. You probably know the drill. I made some observations/suggestions, and they are only that, so take them for whatever they’re worth.  - Great imagery.

Hi Abby, Just stopping by to check out your novel. You likely know the drill. These are merely my findings/suggestions, so take them for whatever they’re worth.
