Summary Sunday

Well, we've come to the end of Summary Sundays for The Lady and the Minstrel. I typed "The End" on my first draft on Friday and since my next goal is to do a cutting revision, I won't have any new sentences to share with you for awhile. Here is a final sample of sentences from my writing sessions this week.

Monday: Robert had rarely seen Strode and Gunthar eye-to-eye like this. Strode had the more hulking build, but Gunthar stood every inch Strode’s height and something about the implacable set of Gunthar’s shoulders, the haughty turn of his mouth, the uncompromising air of command his still strong form wore as easily as an old, familiar mantle, made Strode appear inexplicably small.

Tuesday: This was not the way of either of their worlds, for a villein and an earl to be friends.

Wednesday: “Hugh,” Lady Helen rebuked her husband, “have a little sympathy for their feelings. As I recall, someone hustled me off to my wedding night quite contrary to my father’s wishes.”

Thursday: Robert realized her hand was still tucked in his and that he gripped her slim fingers a little too tightly. He tried to ease his grip while he awaited her reply.

Friday: THE END!

Thanks for letting me share new sentences with you along this long and sometimes very scary journey! Next up: revision #1. Wish me luck!

Loyalty's Web ~ now in print!

For those of you who have been asking when Loyalty's Web will once again be available in print, the answer is--now! Not only can you now purchase a print copy on Amazon, but through the end of February, I'm offering print copies of Loyalty's Web at a special "Valentine" offer of only $12.95! Come March the cost will rise to it's regular $15.95 pricing, so if you've been wanting to add it to your library, you won't find a better time than now.

And look at the beautiful full-cover that An Author's Art has made me. Isn't it lovely?

Summary Sunday

Good news! I am definitely in the last chapter of The Lady and the Minstrel! I hope to finish up my first draft this week. If not this week, early the next week. (Because you never know what life might throw at you to make you miss a day or two.) That means I won't have many more new sentences to share with you from this particular writing project. Here is probably my next-to-the-last Summary Sunday with you from The Lady and the Minstrel.

Monday: (Kit:) “To the devil with you, Rob. Do you think I don’t know what you are trying to do?”

Wednesday: Strode gripped his hilt with both hands and raised the point of the blade above their struggling bodies, poising it to spear the two men together as one might impale a pair of fish.

Thursday: The ragged voice startled Robert.

Friday: Gunthar dealt Robert a brisk cuff on the side of the head. “Young fool,” he said.
