Excerpts from the Novel

I thought that as I shift focus to my novel and have less time to blog, each week I would post an exerpt from the chapters as they are written. I'm focusing on a chapter a week until it's complete now that I have my firm story idea down. The title of the book remains a secret. Which is why I chose the following as the first tidbit.

Here is the first tiny exerpt from chapter one.

"There are two kinds of secrets. The first kind plagues on its keeper, like so many unrepentant termites biting and chewing at the base of an ancient oak until, under the furious storm of time, the mighty tree is felled by the weakness eaten into its roots".

We'll have a shot at getting our copies signed, right?

I see so many oaks down here in the deep south. Big majestic oaks with that spooky spanish moss draping around its branches. I'll think of your excerpt and call them my secret bearing trees from now on...

Breeze said...

absolutely Cam! Those mysterious trees have a secret for every acorn...
