I know, I know – in last week’s WIPpet I said the extract I posted would be the last one from Time Shifters but I have nothing else to share this week and so my trusty children’s novel is seeing the light of day again. It’s not yet gone out to beta readers so I guess it can still be classed as a work in progress (just).
This week I give you a neat 11 lines from chapter 11 for the 11th September. All I really need to tell you to set this scene up is it’s 1471 and Maisie and Lizzie have found a room for the night in an inn.
“I wonder what’s happening back home?” Lizzie said. “Do you reckon the police are out looking for us?”
I sat on the bed next to her. “I guess so. We’ve been gone for four days.”
“Maybe there’ll be a facebook page dedicated to us?”
“Are you worried you’re missing out on your fifteen minutes of fame?”
“I don’t want to be famous for being a missing person.”
“But you want to be famous?”
“Not really, no.”
So there you have it, the final installment of Time Shifters until it’s published – unless you’ve kindly offered to beta read it of course.
I will have to miss WIPpet Wednesday next week as I’m going away for a few blissful days in Norfolk with my husband and our dog, Frodo. Five days of fresh sea air, good food and no internet – I can’t wait. However, if you stop by my blog on Saturday then Elaine Jeremiah will be kicking off her blog tour for The Inheritance with a guest post. Plus if you have time tomorrow then Joanne Phillips has got lots lined up on her blog including giveaways to celebrate the launch of her cosy mystery, Murder at the Maples.
Many thanks to K L Schwengel for hosting WIPpet Wednesday. Got a WIP you’d like to share then simply choose an extract that corresponds to the date (WIPpet maths is encouraged) and add the link to your post here.
