I want to share with you guys a short excerpt from my very first novel, or at least the very first novel I came close enough to completing. It's called The King's Maiden. I began writing it in August 2009 after I read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. I had just gotten out of high school, and I was home for the summer trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. The King's Maiden was what I came up with.
After rereading the opening scene I can definitely see how I've improved over the last few years, my grammar especially. I hope. I was inspired to post it after reading another writer's blog post about her first novel. I'm not going to lie. I did do a little editing, but it is essentially still the same.
Thanks for reading and commenting.
