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.
Valley of the Shadow is live! And on sale at 99 cents!. Details below the snippet. It’s also been reviewed by WeWriWa regular Amy Braun. Thanks Amy!
Several months have passed since Kendryk was first captured by Teodora and he’s gradually recovering from his wounds, mostly thanks to the excellent care of Teodora’s personal physician, who’s also managed to keep him out of the dungeon so far. But Teodora has been busy in the meantime. She has removed Kendryk from his position as ruler of Terragand and put his treacherous uncle in his place. She’s just broken the news to Kendrk. Slightly edited.
The meaning of what she had done was finally trickling into his brain and he now had to fight for composure. Illegal as it was, he realized she could do this because no one could stand against her. His kingdom was gone.
“I hope you aren’t offended if I no longer address you as prince. You are now just Kendryk Bernotas and not entitled to any special treatment,” Teodora said as she stood.
She walked to the door and called for a guard.. “Take Master Bernotas to the dungeon.”
She turned to Kendryk once more. “I hope you enjoyed the sunshine today. You will never see it again.”
