Chryssie had vanished and his heart panged a little that she hadn’t said a word. But it did little to diminish the warm feelings he had within his chest at that moment or to lessen the memory of the night before. What came next however, was certain to do just that.
The flap to his tent was whipped open. A gauntleted hand grabbed his ankle and yanked him in to the daylight. In his panic Alken grabbed at the sheets to try and cover his smooth skin. Soon hands were on his shoulders, arms and legs to pin him to the ground.
As Alken’s eyes adjusted he was aware of someone opening a scroll of paper by his left ear and heard the words “Definitely him.” The men holding him down were dressed in uniforms of leather and minimal brass plating’s. “Grab his things."
This is just a little taste of what I'm working on. I'm editing the first "Powers of Ishgam" book and it's my main project right now. I've taken a couple of little "breaks" to write other things but my main goal is definitely to get a first edit of this done and then share it with a friend of mine for some feedback.
A lot of people assume I've gone straight into writing book 2 of "Tales of the Key". A fair assumption, but behind the scenes my writing is never as simple as book 1, then 2 then 3 etc. I have so many ideas and projects at different stages. This was especially so when DS wasn't out yet. I even had a debate on whether to abandon DS in favour of the first Ishgam book. (So glad I didn't).
Long story short, the first draft of this was already finished long before editing on DS was finished.
