Friday Teaser

This is a snippet from my latest chapter, taken from book three “Healer”


Upon entry, he found Ashpin leaning against the window overlooking the front yard. A few voices floated in from below, those of merchants and items being loaded onto carts.

“You all right?” Wisdom asked. “You were quiet on the ride back yesterday.”

Ashpin shrugged. “Just… thinking.”

Wisdom left the door open as he strolled closer to the window. A series of squeaking carts from below confirmed the merchants leaving for town. “About what Lord Gracie said?”

The boy continued to watch the merchants as he spoke. “Sometimes I have to wonder about all the things my mother talked about while she was sick. I learned to believe the ones when I knew she was aware, and just listen to the ones when I knew it was just…” He finally looked over to the prince. “You know.”

Wisdom remained quiet, and only gave a slight nod in understanding. He recalled when his own mother had taken ill. Never once had he doubted her words to discover what he was or where he came from. Then again, she had been well enough to tell him before the illness completely claimed her, while Ashpin’s mother had lingered in uneasy cycles between truth and fiction.

“Did she ever mention if anything happened to your father?” he asked.

“No.” Back to the window again.

An awkward silence lingered while the prince thought of a way to liven the mood. News of the boy’s father darkened the room; its presence was a testimony to Osha’s warning. There were no more carts outside. The last of the merchants had disappeared under the draping trees a few minutes back heading into town. It was there the prince needed to be, and with that thought an idea emerged.

This is why I love being a member of SCBWI (society of children's books, writers & illustrators) because I get cool stuff in the mail!

So this morning I was browsing through their quarterly magazine when I came across a site known as So I checked it out. The article written on it suggested that it helped offer free sample chapters for potential readers who might want to try your published works in the future. It's a simple program, it's free, and all you do is click on the link and your book opens up. Simple as that. 

Now, I uploaded a PDF version of my novel so that it looks like how it's laid out in the actual book. So that's cool. I don't have to worry about clicking on extra links like you had to do in another version I had uploaded to my site earlier.

This is way better. Way. Better. And fast.

Free Sample Chapter

Discovered this cool little site to upload chapters so people can browse through for free. So here's a little sample for my first novel "Wisdom" using platform. It's pretty neat!
