I had a breakthrough! Chapter One of The Magician’s Blood, Book Two of my series, has been giving me trouble, but I think I’ve finally got it. A beginning!
Herman Anderson stood up before the train came to a stop. Tapping her foot and tightly clutching the shoulder strap of her backpack that rested on the seat she’d vacated, she felt a hand gently enclose hers. She relaxed a fraction. She looked down into the eyes of her lover, Stephen Dagmar, and her muscles gave in a fraction more to the comfort of his touch.
“I know what you’re going to say,” she said with a sigh.
He raised one perfect black eyebrow. “That no matter what you find when you get home, we’ll deal with it?”
“You’re not going to get off this train before they open the doors?”
“That I love you?” He smiled then, and the rest of her nerves ceased their vibration.
“I love you too.”
She squeezed his hand to steady herself as the train finally came to a grinding halt at the Ottawa Via Rail station.
I’m aiming to publish on May 27th, eleven months from the publication date of the first book. Remember, if you want to read Book One now for free, it’s on NetGalley.com.
I’m getting excited!! 😀
