|Releasing 3rd June!|
My YA scifi novel Gethyon is releasing in just over a week, so I'm celebrating by starting to share some snippets of the finished work - got my final PDF last week, woo hoo! So here, my young hero is somewhat confused. (Please note, I've edited slightly to fit the rules and finish in a good place.)
Gethyon stumbled and fell. Light seared across his vision, a violent assault of color, and he threw up an arm to defend himself. Something brushed against him and spun him, and then another bruising impact sent him backward.
“Watch where you’re going,” someone scolded.
Gethyon dropped his arm and squinted, fighting to keep his balance. People flowed around him, but the man who had spoken was already moving away, a reproving frown on his face as he passed Gethyon by.
Soft sunlight gleamed from smooth marble, a blend of gray, green and white beneath his feet. Humans bustled around him in different directions, each intent on their own concerns with only the odd,
inquisitive glance thrown his way as he stood, alone and bewildered, in the midst of them. The plaza seemed to be a main pedestrian thoroughfare in the middle of a wide valley.
Where was he?
Hope you enjoyed that! You can read more by clicking on the page heading for Gethyon above or the EXCERPT under the book cover on the right hand menu bar of this blog. In the meantime, why not check out the other authors participating in this week's SFFSAT by clicking on the banner below?
