Weekend Writing Warriors – #8sunday

So I keep trying to get back into participating in bloghops, which leads us to today and the Weekend Writing Warriors, where writers share an 8-10 sentence snippet of their writing.

Because I seem unable to focus on anything other than In Pain and Blood… that’s what these sentences will all be about…

Blurb: When a routine inspection goes awry, Dylan is left unleashed and alone. Afraid he’ll become prey for the King’s Hounds, he struggles to make his way back to the only safety he’s ever known. Or is it?


Dylan burst through the door with Tracker at his heels, ready to defend his companions. He froze in the doorway, struggling to make sense of what he was seeing.

Tables were overturned, one broken. A man cowered against the bar, his face bloody. The sight he shrank from was an angered Marin brandishing what appeared to be a table leg. 

The normally placid hunter had become rage incarnate, screaming at the man and trying to win herself free of Authril’s grip. Dylan frantically searched for Katarina and found her crouched near the bar, her little dagger ready to fend off the two men advancing on her with pokers.

“Oh, for gods’ sake,” Tracker muttered as he squeezed under Dylan’s arm. “I can’t spend one day, just one day, in a tavern without someone starting a fight?”


If you want to read more, the story is currently being posted here every second Sunday of the month, apart from the steamier chapters which will require Patreon. In fact, chapter three was posted just last week.

  1. I rather chose it mid-chapter, or will it be the start of a new chapter? I really don't know. The story keeps growing and expects me to just trot along behind it.

    Me, too! I'm loving all the excerpts.
