#WeWriWa Cargon: Honor and Privilege #fantasy #scifi #postapocalyptic

Happy Easter!! Hope the bunny's left chocolaty droppings for you (wow, that image is totally disgusting). This snippet includes the last 3 sentences from last week, but it was the only way to get this whole paragraph together, and I think it deserves that.

Eve took a marble piece in her hand and held it tightly. She could feel every edge, every plane. The corners seemed to bite into her skin. Small, it had little weight and yet felt exceedingly heavy, as though she held the world in her hand instead of a tiny piece. Eve placed it on the board in a new position. The movement was monumental. It wasn't simply the start of a game; it was the start of everything. She had put her world into motion. Turning her back on the three-tiered board, she returned to her dorm. From the corner, she noticed someone else in the shadows, not near the kitchen, the direction she headed, but the grand entrance, where the High One had left. Despite being one of the elite, he didn’t address Eve, and she continued on her way.

As I mentioned last week, you can pre-order Honor & Privilege on AmazonBarnes and NobleKobo or through iTunes. If you are inclines, I also have ThunderClap campaign for each release: Honor&Privilege, Duty&Sacrifice and Sovereignty. There's one for Never Say Die too, which releases this week!

  3. I'm wondering exactly what she set in motion. Between that and the figure standing in the corner, this snippet is very intriguing! :)

  5. Oh, she's gutsy. I think that's what the High One is hoping for. Nice scene!

    1. Maybe a step further than expected, but she won't be disappointed.

  6. Love the image of the movement of the piece wasn't just a movement of the piece - waiting to see what she's set in to motion.

  11. Love the way you describe her holding the piece, how it feels, then what happens when she puts it in place. Many questions.
