Welcome to Six-Sentence Sunday!
I just finished the rough draft of CROWN OF ASH. At just over 111,000 words, this is officially the longest book in the series, and that will still be true even if I nuke my customary 10,000 words from the final product. ;D
Now that I’m done, I have 3 completed projects badly in need of some editing, and starting next week I’ll likely start highlighting scenes from my next release, the horror novel SOMETHING BLACK…
In the meantime, however, enjoy this scene from late in CROWN OF ASH, as Kane and a most unlikely band of allies race towards some desolate ruins hoping to rescue his friends from certain death…
Voth Ra’morg was a shell.
The ruined structure came into view just as the sun sank into the horizon. Jagged stone walls and rusted steel towers shone grey-gold in the dying light. A black and ice-laden marsh surrounded the ruins, but a thin and crumbling network of earth and wooden walkways provided safe passage across the freezing dark bog. Tendrils of green mist hovered over the surface of the water, and thick wooden stakes stood in a perimeter around the desolate city, a wall of black spines.
They weren’t the first to reach the ruins: the Revengers had already beaten them there.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to head on over to Six Sunday and check out the other participating authors!
