Join #MFRWAuthor @KimHeadlee at @RisingStarCon plus read Ch 14/sc 3c of RAGING SEA

October is a busy month for me. On Friday evening 10/21/16 and all day Saturday 10/22/16, I will be signing my books at the…

Rising Star 25 Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention,
Othello Harris-Jefferson Student Center, Bluefield State College,
219 Rock St, Bluefield, West Virginia.

I'll have copies of my books available for purchase, and I am scheduled to be on two panels in addition to presenting my Business of Writing workshop. Convention hours are 6 – 11 p.m. Friday, and 9 a.m. – 11 p.m. Saturday. I hope to see you there!

And because tomorrow is Saturday and I'll be up to my eyeballs in con goings on, here is yet another installment of Raging Sea for your enjoyment.

Raging Sea Chapter 14, Scene 3c

Arthur dispatched a soldier to find the Comitissa Britanniam and ordered the rest of First Ala to dismount and lead their horses to the staging area’s picket lines while he wheeled Macsen about to join his family’s litter.

The cavalry troop obeyed but hadn’t advanced more than a few paces when Alayna appeared, mounted, from through the gate and cantered straight up to the Pendragon.

“What is he doing here?” Angusel had never heard his mother sound so furious, and the pit in his gut confirmed that he was the “he” she had meant. He kept his gaze trained forward as he clenched Stonn’s reins, though mindful not to drag on them and hurt his horse’s mouth. The heat in his cheeks and the sweat trickling down his back he could do nothing about. “What gives you the right to violate Caledonach customs with such blatant disregard?” she demanded in Caledonaiche.

Arthur gave her a long, cool appraisal. “My soldiers are here upon my orders,” he answered her, with an improved Caledonaiche accent. “All of them. If you have a quarrel, it is with me and no one else. We can settle this quarrel, you and me, in the nearest combat ring and to the death, if that is your wish.”

“My wish! You don’t give a bloody damn about what I wish. I’ll wager you don’t even know what I wish!”

“That you had never underestimated me at Abar-Gleann?”

Angusel heard the undercurrent of humor in the Pendragon’s voice and pursed his lips to contain the urge to smirk.
