Shameless Plug: For those who might be interested, Amazon.com now has Chapter One of The 4400: Promises Broken up as an extract. – http://bit.ly/e6Ng7
(Because they never format scene breaks properly, I’ll just point out that the last line of scene one is, “He felt himself scream, but he heard only silence.”)
I’ve just posted the second and third chapters of The Calling, my upcoming first original novel that is scheduled for publication in a few weeks.
Here’s a short tease from Chapter 2:
“Your dog showed us why we can’t have new furniture.”
“You know, it never ceases to amaze me,” Tom said. “When Scout does something useful, like chase a raccoon out of your garden, she’s ‘our’ dog. But when she wrecks something, she instantly becomes ‘my’ dog.”
Karen scowled jokingly over her shoulder. “Your point?”
“No point,” Tom replied.
“Get used to it,” Karen said. “Same rule goes for kids.”
And here’s a brief bit from Chapter 3:
Tom jolted awake in the dead of night, all but knocked from his bed. All the prayers he’d ever heard had come to him as whispers.
This one had fallen with the force of a command.
Seven words echoed in his mind as he scrambled from bed wearing just his frayed green sweatpants.
Enjoy! And if you dig what you read, pre-order The Calling from Amazon.com while it’s on sale!
For those of you who might be curious, I’ve just posted the first chapter of The Calling, my upcoming first original novel that is scheduled for publication next month.
Here’s a taste to get you started…
Jung Lee didn’t hear the bullet till it passed through his head.
Hot powder shot up from its ricochet off a concrete skylight housing. The dust stung Jung’s eyes. The slim young Korean man winced against the pain, blinked his eyes clear, then turned to see who had ambushed him.
Enjoy! (ETA: I hope to post the next two chapters sometime during the next two weeks.)
The good folks over at TrekWeb have posted another excerpt from Gods of Night, the first book in my new Star Trek Destiny trilogy. The excerpt comprises all of Chapter 3, and focuses on the crew of Titan.
