Hi all and welcome to my first weekend writing warriors post. Weekend warriors is a new eight sentence meme where writers post eight sentences of a current work in progress or a published novel. For more weekend warrior posts please click HERE
I've been doing lots of promo of late. I've got several books out in the world and it goes without saying I'd love it if you would go and check them all out. But for this meme, I thought it might be fun to give a glimpse of what I'm currently working on.
Sweet Lenora is written from the first person perspective of the heroine, Lenora.The second novella, with a working title "To the Wind" continues their adventures in the hero, Anton's,voice:
After we fled, I kept my council because I did not want to cause my love a moment’s worry, nor did I want to remind her of the night she and I sailed from Rio, leaving Mr. Settle in a pool of his own blood. His death at her hand had already caused her far too much grief. There were times she would cry out in her sleep and I knew Settle was the source of her night terrors. How could I add to them?
Yet as we came into the Pacific and drew closer to San Francisco, the meeting in the public garden weighed heavily on me. I did not want my marriage to contain secrets. I had seen firsthand how secrets could devour trust and cause more grief than any truth uttered. So it was that I vowed to tell her all that had transpired.
