Hi ho, hi ho its time for another Sunday Snippet for WeWriWa. Have you had a great week? Me, I’ve been super busy. Time is flying around here as I’m hard at work on yet another novel in the Wild Randalls Series. Book 4 Hunting the Hero is the last one and I’m anxious to wrap it up well.
My snippet this week is from the upcoming release, Guarding the Spoils. The next section follows on directly from last week where Oliver was trying to get a bit of light reading done but his brother is rudely interrrupting him just for the sake of eating.
He was plotting his biggest escapade yet—a grand tour of the known world. A world far away from this library.
He plucked three volumes from the shelves at random—Greek, Italian, and French—and descended to the main floor. Just enough light reading to last him until morning. Unlike others in his family, he enjoyed reading at all hours of the day and night. He devoured books as quickly as his younger brother demolished a well-roasted leg of lamb at dinner. The years without such precious volumes were a gaping pit of boredom he needed to fill.
“Everyone is waiting on you to go into dinner.”
And that’s my Weekend Writing Warrior’s post. I hope you visit the WeWriWa website to check out the other wonderful work by the authors listed there. Have a great weekend reading.

I’m right there with him – who needs food and other people’s company when you have books?
Very nice excerpt.
Love the ‘gaping pit of boredom’ line. Nicely done.
Wonderful 8. I tweeted.
I love his love for books! Enjoying this story, can’t wait to read more!
I really feel for Oliver there.
I like this character, he has his priorities right!
some eat to feed their hunger, some must sate their soul. Wonderfully thoughtful characters.
