Sunday Snippet January 3, 2016


Leaving Onyx Sun to focus on my main project for this year: The Academy of the Accord.  It’s a series of twelve books and my main goal this year is to get them edited and ready to release in 2017.  (You can all stop laughing now.)

This is from the first book of the series.

Marsden stepped into the barracks of the Warrior Guild in Widna and raised a hand in greeting to the men already there.  Dropping his pack onto an empty bunk he followed it to the mattress with a weary groan as the others went back to their tasks and conversations.  He had been out for three months escorting a rather boring and sour wizard named Barlen and now all he wanted was to collapse and sleep for a week. Or maybe two.  He stretched and settled against the mattress, too tired to worry about blankets.  

The kinks in his back had just relaxed when the door opened again.  It was Ulav, the old warrior who was in charge of the Widna Barracks.

“Messenger just in.”  

Marsden sat up as the room fell silent, all eyes on Ulav as the old warrior stood in the doorway, his gnarled hand gripping the knob.

“There’s a wizard stranded out in Claimach.  His escort got killed in a fight and he needs a warrior.”
