First teaser from new project…

I’m taking today off to bond with my new book, to look it in the eyes and ask it about what it wants in life, and woo it with chocolate in the hopes it gives me many words…Anyway, I thought I’d give a teaser!




"I hear a sound, a song, none of the words but the melody, wandering up from the valley. I sit up and look down at the Arch, and see a girl in blue with two dark braids, dancing alone by the falling walls.

            Emily has this crown of flowers in her hair that loses petals as she spins, and she looks for all the world like the queen of the wild. Except for the smile. I don’t imagine queens have such foolish grins. It pales only to Edgar’s, as if he turned and kissed her, and left part of his smile behind, an echo."

    No, this one is actually from my new WIP! It’s early, so I can’t give a PLOT-related teaser, just some tone :p

    This is beautiful! I love the idea of a smile’s echo.

  4. Oh my goodness. I want to read this now. Really bad. I want to read it now really bad. πŸ˜›
    I love the part about him leaving his smile behind on the girl. It’s very pretty. πŸ™‚

    Thanks, Julia! I can’t give away any plot right now, since it’s so early, but wanted to give at least a taste of the mood πŸ™‚

    I’m so glad you like it! While this project is still a WIP, it’s similar in tone to NW, which comes out next August, so hopefully you’ll like that one!

    Thanks Kait! It’s so hard to pick snippets that don’t give anything away!!! Hopefully soon I’ll be allowed to give some glimpses of plot πŸ˜‰
