Dancing With Fate - North, to Castell Madog


Hello fellow  Snippeteers and readers.  Welcome to my Weekend Warriors post. Sorry I wasn't around last week, but I'm continuing this week with another snippet from my fantasy novella, Dancing With Fate. Thank you to everyone who's been following my snippets so far.

BACKGROUND:
Having fulfilled the mission set by Apollo, Terpsichore the muse of dance is preparing to return to Olympus when she meets the mysterious Myrddin. He invites her to share a meal with him and invites her to journey with him for safety's sake, being unaware of her origins and immortal status.

SNIPPET:
"So tell me," Myrddin repeated at length, "is your home very far from here?"

She gave an almost imperceptible shake of her head. "It won't take me long to get there, I'll leave at dawn tomorrow." She eyed him with a curious expression in her eyes. "Where are you journeying to, if I may ask, and have you come far?" 

"North, to Castell Madog, another day's ride from here. I have been travelling for five days and nights, my journey is nearly over."

She did not ask, but something about the way she looked at him compelled him to add, "I'm on a quest to rescue the Lady Gwendolyn, who has been abducted from her father's home by Madog."

"I see—there is a reward for her return?"

Myrddin pursed his lips, annoyed she should think his motives so shallow, but they hardly knew each other, why would she have any reason to believe otherwise?

"No, this is a matter beyond mere riches. She is my betrothed."

When Terpsichore, the Muse of Dance, is assigned to revisit the land of Wales, her task seems simple enough. She is unaware there is a hidden agenda. Before she can return to Olympus her path crosses that of the mysterious Myrddin, and her heart is lost. But Myrddin is promised to another. His mind is set on the dangerous task that lies before him, and the woman he has sworn to save. Nevertheless, he cannot deny the growing attraction between him and the beautiful stranger he meets along the way. 

 Terpsichore and Myrddin face a deadly force that threatens to part them forever. Is she destined to lose the only man she has ever truly loved? Is there nothing she can do to save him? Finally, when all seems lost, in desperation she finds herself DANCING WITH FATE.

Woman Ex SF Thriller Book Tour and #Giveaway


Woman Ex
by
Real Laplaine

Genre:
SF Thriller
The world in the very near future undergoes a radical shift in power -
changes forced upon it by two global catastrophic events. Wars
suddenly fade to nothing. Religious conflicts disappear. Crime is all
but gone. Nuclear weapons are banned and peace reigns across the
globe. The proverbial "new-age of man" has come, but not
without a price. Woman EX is a thrilling ride into the near future,
one where women must take over in a world where men have become an
endangered species and are expendable. But, all is not well in the
new utopia. Power, as always, corrupts some entrusted with it, and
the vision of a society without men drives Lady V, the President of
New America, a woman haunted and driven by her own demons, to do the
unthinkable. She is about to introduce Woman EX - something that will
change the human race forever. 

"An utterly captivating and quickly-paced thriller..."

Author, Victoria Ichizli-Bartels


"Here is another fascinating book from an author I came to enjoy so much."
A.G. Mogan, author of The Secret Journals of Adolf Hitler 





I write existential thrillers in geopolitical, crime and sci-fi genres.
I don't strictly follow the rules of the genres - my books have an
existential weave to them. I invite the reader to step outside the box of mediocrity and see different perspectives and possibly even,
to challenge the paradigms that have become our accepted  "norms."

Everything Under the SunEverything Under the Sun

By Jessica Redmerski

Genre: Dystopian/ Post apocalyptic

Age category: Young Adult/ New Adult/ Adult

Pages: 683 pages

Release Date: 28 August 2017



Blurb:

Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.

Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to
find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?
