It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-10-sentence snippets from their WIPs on their blogs. There’s a lot of reading, commenting and great writing. Click on the link to see the full list.
OMG you guys! Rise of the Storm is available for preorder and comes out on June 30. (link below). It all happened rather suddenly, but it’s nice to have the ebook version done and dusted. Now I just need to get it ready for print.
With that in mind, I thought we’d celebrate today by launching a daring rescue of everyone’s favorite heretic, ex-Father Landrus. Teodora and Braeden left in a big hurry, hoping to reach the capital before it’s besieged. As a result, prisoner security is a bit more lax than it should be, with Braeden and his fellow imperial guards miles ahead of the baggage with the empress. Kendryk sneaks through the woods with a bunch of armed, mounted men and swoops down on the baggage train while they’re making camp:.
Kendryk gave the signal. They charged into the camp, running over a fire or two and upsetting a tent. People fled into the woods screaming, and a few soldiers ran for weapons.
Kendryk let the men behind him worry about the soldiers; he focused on the guards. By now a few more had run back toward the wagon. He drew a pistol and fired at the guard who stepped out to block his path.
His shot missed, and the guard jumped out of the way before Kendryk ran him down. Another stood right in front of Kendryk, holding a musket. He raised it, but it misfired. Now Kendryk was too close for any more shooting and drew his sword.
