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.
Now that I’ve taken you close to the end of Rise of the Storm, it’s time to move on. So now you’ll get tidbits from Valley of the Shadow for a while. Especially because I just got the cover (see below). Isn’t it shiny?
Arryk and Larisa are the two pretty people pictured. You’ve already met Arryk, so today I’ll introduce his girl.. Gwynneth is now besieged in a castle with Father Landrus and hers and Kendryk’s children. Her brother Arryk is trying to figure out how to rescue her. Larisa worries that Gwynneth might lose her mind, since she can’t fight her enemies directly. Arryk says:
“But Gwynn isn’t a soldier like you. I’m sure she’s bored, being cooped up in a castle, but I imagine she’ll pass the time reading and discussing philosophy.”
“Ugh,” Larisa said.
“She got that from grandmother. Aksel did too. I’m the only one who’s not a scholar.”
“Thank Ercos for that,” Larisa said, punching his arm. “I would never let a scholar into my bed.”
“It’s been my bed I’ve been letting you into lately,” Arryk said, feeling warmer at the thought.
