NaNo has been wrapped up, but I’m back in action after a full work week to give you some great news! Y’all are still winning! Congratulations to Misty Danielles who–if I’m reading her tweets right–destroyed the last week of November to reach Silver Pen. CONGRATULATIONS!! Check out a snippet from her project, Code of Thieves, and be sure to send her your congrats, too. Way to keep to the Never Give Up, Never Surrender creed 😀
Code of Thieves
Thief Viera Beckett is sent off to the island of Julianna, with her fellow thieves, Jamie Burton, Serena Levi, and Liam Kerby, to steal a valuable drug.
Serena pushed past Viera, stepping a few feet in front of the soldiers. The air around her seemed to crackle, her skin glowing as if lit from within by some miracle. Without a pause she went for the healer. With a flick of her wrist, the eyes exploded in the healer’s head. He crumpled without a sound.
“Be free,” she said.
Serena moved towards the soldiers. Viera moved to protect her as she saw swords raised. She lifted her hands. “Stop,” she said.
“Lay down your arms.” As one they obeyed her.
“Sleep,” she commanded. Serena swept her hands in an arc, and the soldiers toppled without protest, one by one like a breeze pushed them over.
The air was strangely still. Slowly, Viera stepped forward, standing in a shock of silence, all words gone by what she witnessed, gazing out at the field of fallen bodies. It had happened so quickly.
We’re glad you joined us on this crazy adventure. Congratulations again!
