Hello readers. I hope you are all well and safe. I participated in NaNoWriMo last November and I’m excited to announce that my new fantasy short story has just been released! I wasn’t sure I could participate because of a broken arm and shoulder (spiral fractured humerus), but I chose to do a personal challenge of 10,000 words and I made it! If you’ve never broken your dominant arm and shoulder (and I don’t recommend it if you can avoid it) it’s quite difficult typing with the other hand. Even more so while drinking tea.
The story’s about a young Nord farmer who embarks oh his Rite of Passage to serve the king and the people of the Town of Refuge as evil encroaches the land.
“With all the courage he could gather in his brave young body, Warag took a deep breath and let out a loud battle cry. He rushed towards the cave entrance and closed his eyes, bracing the void and believing with all the might in his heart for that one moment of defiance. And just as he reached the darkness, he heard the wind.”
Got your attention?
It’s the first of several short fantasy stories in a series. The story’s full of adventure, challenges, courage and love of community. It will appeal to older children and those who still are but act like grown-ups when necessary. You can read a few pages if you click on Preview below the cover. An ebook and only CA 0.99 for a limited time.
Watch for the next book in the series coming soon and an audio book of WARAG which will be available this summer!
‘Til next time, be safe, be well, and know you are loved by The One who created you in His image.
