I am actually not a "weekend" writing warrior but a full-time writer. I write 11th and 12th century romances. Hats off to those authors who can work full-time jobs (some even with small children) and still write. That's amazing to me!
Here's my snippet from book one in my new series that takes places in Ireland (Eire). Pronunciation links are again provided. Enjoy!
"But Diarmuid the Despicable arrives any day. I'd hoped to appease him with some of the precious eggs so he'd not eat us all up."
"Eat us all up? Who told ye such a thing?"
"Mary...and Elsbeth. They said he was massive! And that he never had enough to eat. That's why he eats up all the children who cross his path...the red-headed ones first."
Be sure to check out other participating authors with their snippets. Here's the link:
