I’m excited to participate in a different kind of blog tour today. It’s the Work in Progress Blog Tour!
The rules of the tour are:
- Link back to the person who nominated you.
- Nominate other authors.
- Write the opening line(s) of your first three chapters from your WiP.
Since I’m super late in joining the tour and my other author friends have already participated, I’m only nominating one writer, so you have no excuse but to check her out…
My current WiP is the second book in the Culpepper Saga. Our hero, John, is spending most of his time in the colony of Virginia, but his family is living in England under the dark cloud of a civil war. Here are the opening lines of the first three chapters of my WiP, “John Culpepper the Merchant,” releasing in May 2015.
Chapter 1 – The King
The King marched into the room, unannounced. His footfall echoed off the stone walls as he paraded through the middle of an active session of Parliament and was greeted with stunned silence.
Chapter 2 – John
John Culpepper had been sitting idle in Jamestown for the last ten months. He had never tarried in Virginia for such a length of time before.
Chapter 3 – The Doldrums
She sat idle, unmoving in the dim morning light. Her sails hung limp just as they had for the last two days. John restlessly stared across her bow at the unending sea of glass that lay before him.
