Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop where authors post 8-10 sentences from their current, newly released, or upcoming work in progress. Still taking my time with the first chapter of Storm of the Gods, the first book in my new and upcoming urban fantasy series, and our main character Derek has his hands full with a skilled female warrior…
I turned and leaped back from the short blade that slashed toward me. The woman sliced the blade back down, trying to catch me again. I wove around her strikes, but she moved like water––fast, graceful, and relentless.
I blocked every strike she made, but there were too many close calls. She seemed to know exactly how and when I was going to move, something the dark-scion hadn’t been able to do.
She was stalling me. In the background, I could see the storm-scion swirling his hands upward, calling gusts of wind to him. Dust and grit curled under his palms and smashed into the door of the truck.
No, no, shit––
Yup. Remember the dracanae that they’d locked in the back of the truck? It might be making an appearance soon *wrings hands evilly* Gods above and below, I love this series. Anyway, I’m still working on my YA Fantasy novel. My deadline for this draft is the end of the month, and I intend to stick to it. Soon as it’s done, I’ll be sending Storm of the Gods off to editors and booking a cover artist, seeing as urban fantasy doesn’t seem to be “in” with literary agents right now. Not something I’m upset about, just something I noticed with all the new releases coming up. Hence why I’m cracking down on my YA Fantasy. I should have more details about it in the coming months, and hopefullyStorm of the Gods will release early 2018. Waaaaay beyond what I’d planned, but circumstances happen, and I don’t have a problem pushing back a release to work on making the actual book better.
Anyway, that’s my little update. How about some book bargains?
Crimson Sky is on that list, as are many other WeWriWa authors. Be sure to check out the other Weekend Writing Warriors blogs and websites for your fill of sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and awesome book deals! Until next time, cheers!
