There’s a Very Good Reason Why I Don’t Write Prologues by Allison Merritt

I’d like the Prologue that never was. 🙂

Literary Lagniappe

Wystan (The Heckmasters) is the first book in a trilogy about three half demon brothers who guard a portal to Hell. Their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of a schoolteacher no one asked for, her quirky little sister, and a strange woman they can’t quite pin down.

Today, I want to share the omniscient prologue-that-never-was. This is so embarrassing. No one has ever seen it before, not even my editor, for good reason. *hangs head in shame* Please, feel free to read it in Sam Elliott’s voice.


Berner is a blight on Hell’s backside. It ain’t on a map and ain’t no one would want to visit if it were. There are legends about this town, before it ever earned its name. It was a pretty place, green pastures and clear streams. They called it Hope Valley. But darkness descended on it like a bad storm.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.
