"Just curious how much I'm going for these days."

 Tyrean at TYREAN'S WRITING SPOT passed on the U Got The Look Meme to me.What I do is go to my current book and look for the word look and then post the paragraphs around it. So, thanks to her, you all get a new snippet.

 What is that thing?”
Hugh, obviously, wasn't even looking at Alyce. His eyes were fixed to the thing standing behind her. Trisli tore his eyes away from the girl to look as well.
The contraption was the strangest looking thing Trisli had ever laid eyes on. It looked something like a wagon, only smaller. The bottom was wood, square in shape, and boxy with a waist high railing running all around it. Over this a canvas floated, bending and bobbing in the wind. The canvas was held to the wagon by ropes and, unlike canvas' which normally covered wagons, this one was sewed closed as it held something in it.

 This is a rough draft of course, but there it is.

 Today starts my...I don't even know what to call it. Book count down? Well, whatever we shall call it, it starts today with a book written by a friend of mine. (In fact, she is one who will be joining in the Book Party after my book is out.)
 Her name is Kendra and you can find her blog HERE. Kendra is the author of two books, and has another coming out soon.

 Summery from her website.
 Robin and Robert are royal twins. They are the only two to have received a Fairy Godmother gift in nearly a century, an amazing honor. Soon it was clear that their gifts had been switched and a search began to find the Fairy Godmother to right the mistake. When she is finally sighted by a knight, the family learns that the pair must find her for themselves and they only have until their 18th birthday ... only 4 months away. Will they be able to find her in time? 

 After reading the summery, and a bit more on the book, I was under the impression this is a re-telling of Robin Hood. And, since I love the story, I really wanted to read the book. (Also, it is on sale through Christmas.When you are a starving author, sales are the best thing since buttered bread.)
 From the little I've been able to read, I think it is going to turn out to be a well written, fun story. And I am very eager to begin it, and the next one!

 Now I need to run. The final pictures came so I have to do some more formatting.

 Quote is from Mark of Athena, something said by Leo.

 Don't forget about the giveaway!!! HERE

 Allons-y!

  2. Thank-you for the lovely shout-out. Oh, and I think your readers might be interested in the fact that Sew is also free on Kindle until the sixth. ;).

    And, yes, Robin Hood IS an important element of Sew, though it is by far not the ONLY thing I retell ...
