This week my snippet is from Sorrel Snowbound, which will be the sequel to Sorrel in Scarlet. My hope is to publish it some time around the end of April. In this sequence, Sorrel is remembering a planning meeting, where a group of people were trying to decide how to protect a neighbouring city.
I should have kept my trap shut then. If I had, maybe Wrack would still be here. But as usual I opened my big mouth. “The lloruk won’t bypass the city to pursue the evacuees if there’s a fighting force in the city. We can hold the graalur for a few days before the city falls, give time for everyone to get to Tolgrail and prepare there. With the extra numbers, Tolgrail can be held. All we need is a small force to hold Daryan for a week or so.”
I wish I had a five-bell coin for every time I had said something that dumb. I’d have enough to pay for a permanent gag.
As always, all comments gratefully welcomed!
