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


Happy Sunday! I hope you'll join me and the other Weekend Writing Warriors in sharing 8-10 sentences from a piece. This is from the first chapter of the first book in the Cargon series. We get our first glimpse through the eyes of someone other than Eve, the shadowy figure.

The servant had just picked up one of the pieces and held it in her hand. His breath caught. Would she put it back? If she did, he would never mention this – except to her. She must know how dangerous it was for her play with those pieces; she would become the lowest of servants, or worse, exiled if she played and lost. Surely, someone had told her. She didn't put it back in the starting position, but made a legal move, demonstrating her knowledge of the game. Glancing his way, she paused before turning and walking away.

Pre-order Honor & Privilege on AmazonBarnes and NobleKobo or through iTunes.

  14. Well, her watcher has good (if slightly condescending) intentions. Wonder if they'll speak to her, and what they'll say.

  16. That has to be Eve! Nice way to introduce her to the story. :-) She's no ordinary servant girl. But who is this voyeur??
