Tweet of the Day: SF OBSCURE: Earth: Final Conflict
As you can see by the large banner ad a the top of this post I signed up to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Saturday web ring. It is a web ring of, well you guessed it, speculative fiction writers to showcase bits of their work. I’ve decided to show a few lines of my current WiP, Lessons of War:
Mother and I stayed in the dining hall after everyone else cleared the table with our handmaidens, Minerva and Athena. I waited in absolute silence for mother’s inevitable question.
“So, if the reports are accurate you had a pleasant evening with the young Duke deHavilland,” she said.
“We spoke, yes.”
“I see. Interesting. While the possibilities are obvious I am not ready to place my bets on an untested stallion,” she said.
“He is not a horse mother!” I blurted out.
The words echoed in the empty hall. I waited under mother’s steely gaze for what seemed like an eternity
“I see. Well, I’ve said my piece. Make of it what you will,” she said as she got up from the table.
I took it exactly for what it meant, an order to stay away from Edward until such time as she deemed it politically advantageous. The Archduchesses had spoken and the Lady Elector had to obey.
