My August novel is a story I've been meaning to flesh out for some time, inspired by a short piece I wrote maybe a year ago about a woman who gains master mage status only to learn that the one thing she was most certain of was a lie.
Fire is the story of how Siva runs away from everything she knows to a land where her magic is forbidden and there finds love - only to be confronted by the need for her magic again.
So far, the book opens with Siva, but very shortly the male main character is introduced, and that's the excerpt I'm sharing today.
I didn't know much about the MMC when I started writing Fire, and so I'm glad this section turned out as well as it did.
At least, right now I think it turned out well. Do you agree?
