Sunday Excerpt — July 28. 2013

It’s Sunday, and Book 8 of the Academy of the Accord series is no longer a WiP so it’s time to move onward to an excerpt of something else, so I decided to post the opening lines of Song and Sword, which is available from Amazon for the Kindle, and from Smashwords for every other e-reader currently known on this planet.

Marlia didn’t know if she had killed him:  she only knew that she had to get away. 

Away from the man who had attacked her, the man now lying, bloody and motionless, on the floor of the barn. 

Away from the flames engulfing the home of the people who had offered her a bed for the night.

Away from this place.

    You have me intrigued. Did she kill him? Will she get away… Yep, I want to know.

  2. Captivating! And so many unanswered questions. Please come back with more next week.

  3. Oh heck, her predicament gets worse as the story goes on. Fantastic snippet!

  4. Oh, wow! You have danger and desperation and a bit of hartbreak, here. Very nice snippet.

  7. She better run far far away, I have the feeling that he might not be alone.
