Progress Update – An Excerpt and a Teaser (sort of)

A Book's Progress 3

This is going to be short. It’s been a pretty quiet week, and nothing much has happened.

See? Thanks for popping in! ๐Ÿ˜€

bye bye!

Okay, well, there’s a tiny bit more than that, but it’s honestly not much this week. It’s all right, though, I do have an excerpt ๐Ÿ˜‰

Progress on Book 2 has been slow, mostly because an idea I’ve had months ago has come back to poke me relentlessly – as it’s done several times over the past few months. So I finally gave in and started writing it ๐Ÿ™‚

Merlin 1

It’s far too early to share anything yet, but suffice it to say for now that I love my new babies and, if this continues, I’ll introduce you soon ๐Ÿ™‚

But back to Book 2! I found this amazing little feature in Scrivener-

word count

and I can’t tell you how much I love it <3 It also shows you how little I got done on Book 2 this week ๐Ÿ˜› I’m hoping to write a little more today, so I’ll wait with updating the word counter at the top until I know for sure how badly I’ve done exactly ^^

In case you’ve missed it (somehow), the giveaway is now live on Goodreads. So far I’m overwhelmed with the response <3 If you’d like to enter, you can do so here.ย Good luck to everyone who’s entered already!

There, now I’m done! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s the excerpt! A good weekend to you all! ๐Ÿ™‚

Rachael screamed, but the assassinโ€™s hot hand against her mouth silenced the sound. She looked around, trying to find anything at all that she could use as a weapon, but there was nothing sharp within reach.

The man who pinned her down held up his knife, and Rachael felt her eyes sting when she saw a slim sliver of blood trickle down the blade. Her blood.

She had never been in a situation as hopeless as this before. Even during her encounter with Cephy she’d been able to move, if not much. Now the body of a man who had come to kill her pressed her into the sheets, his legs holding her in place and the knife by her throat making sure that she couldnโ€™t move her head.

The man on top of her looked to his side, and she followed. Another assassin cloaked in dark cloth help up the book Kaida had entrusted to her. The assassin with the knife nodded, and his friend dashed for the open window. Again Rachael tried to scream, alert someone, but the sound was muffled.

All she could do was watch as her killer smiled, and brought down the knife.

  1. It sounds intriguing and intense! Good luck with it!

  2. Oh wow…loved the excerpt! Good luck with Book 2.

    It’s always fun to have ideas pop up unexpectedly and urge you to write. Can be troublesome with other projects though :p

    • Thank you! ^^

      It’s not that unexpected. I’ve had it for months and it’s popped into my head several times since then but I thought if I ignore it, it might go away ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Amazing excerpt! I don’t know if you know this or not but I canNOT wait for book 2 ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sometimes you just have to give into the new characters. The squeaky wheel gets the oil or in this case, the persistent characters get the story. Good luck with everything!

    • Thank you!! I’d love to have you as a beta or an ARC again, if you’re willing <3 If you like, I mind need someone to discuss some ideas with here and there, too ๐Ÿ™‚

      It just occurred to me that the excerpt is longer than the actual update! :O

      Exactly. I've tried, Moll, I really have, but they wouldn't be ignored any longer! I'll just hope that's a good sign ^^ Thank you!

  4. Now, it’s my time to start doing the catching up ๐Ÿ˜‰
    It’s always hard to decide what to do when you have new ideas popping up and you’re trying to focus on one at a time! I can’t wait to hear more about it ๐Ÿ™‚
    And oh my goodness! What an amazing excerpt! I cannot wait to get my hands on book 2.
    Best of luck with everything ๐Ÿ˜€
