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.
Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate! I’m continuing with early chapters from Fall of the Titan. The cover is almost ready, so hopefully you’ll see it next week. Disguised as clerics on a pilgrimage, Trystan and Natalya are traveling through Galladium. Natalya has been gone from her post as maxima for nearly a year and is worried that the king might have replaced her. There’ve always been a lot of rumors about Natalya’s relationship with the king, and they have a daughter together, though Trystan doesn’t know that yet. I must say, this book has a lot of mushy-crushy puppy love in it,normally not at all my thing. Probably because 4 out of 8 POV characters are teens. Oh, the hormones! Edited to make sense in snippet form.
Natalya frowned, “When I left Allaux, the king and I weren’t on the best terms.”
“Surely he wouldn’t displace you?” Then Trystan remembered, “No, he wouldn’t; when I spoke with him and the queen, he seemed very concerned for your safety. I doubt he’d feel that way if he no longer wanted you in power.”
“I’m not sure about that, since he has another reason for wanting me to remain unharmed.”
Trystan held his breath, waiting to hear why.
Natalya quirked a smile before continuing, clearly aware of his curiosity, “And he’s gone behind my back before. I will try not to expect the worst, but I must be prepared for it.”
“Tell me what I must do to help you,” Trystan said, annoyed at the lack of detail. He felt rather jealous of the king and wished Natalya would put his suspicions to rest.
