Tweet of the Day: The SFR Brigade Presents
As a member of the SFR Brigade I was invited to participate in a member blog hop. I decided to put up the first paragraph of my current WiP, Lessons of War. The death of the last Emperor of Man left the galaxy in turmoil. For three hundred years, the Houses of the Empire have struggled to conquer the Throne of Stars. This is the story of Duke Edward de Havilland as he tries to keep his House intact while pursuing a relationship with the young heir to a rival House. But that affair may very well destroy the very thing he swore to protect.
I caught death in the corner of my eye.
The fireball on the screen crisscrossed the blue sky. A monstrous red and orange ball of destruction surrounded by white trails. The world slowed down around me. Shouts, cries and orders merged into an unintelligible cacophony.
Someone gripped my shoulder, “Your grace, we have to go.”
The Duke of House de Havilland was dead, long live Duke Edward Louis de Havilland.
Long live me.
Hope you enjoy it, and make sure to visit the SFR Brigade page to see what the great writers there have to offer.
