777 Writer’s Challenge—”The Redoubt”

The Redoubt by Devorah FoxH.M. Jones nominated me for the 7th page, 7th row, 7 lines writer’s challenge. My current project is The Redoubt, Book Four of The Bewildering Adventures of King Bewilliam.  You can find Books 1-3 on amazon. com and smashwords.com. Here is the 7th page, 7th row and 7 lines from The Redoubt and this seems to be as good a time as any to give you a peek at the cover too.

Tall and slender with long mahogany hair, Princess Dale was not unattractive yet Robin could not help but see Zachary’s face under the powder, cheek and lip stain. Dale worked hard with the kingdom’s best tailors to craft flattering gowns which nevertheless failed to narrow a young man’s broad shoulders and back or widen narrow hips. Today’s robe of deep purple draped Dale’s form with all the elegance of a counterpane. Princess Dale’s feminine appearance put Robin off balance. He felt like leaving the hall and coming in again to reorient himself but it wouldn’t do any good. Prince Zachary would still be Princess Dale.

Look for a February, 2016 release of The Redoubt. Meanwhile, I nominate John Howell, Skoot Larson and Alice Marks to reveal the 7th page, 7th row and 7 lines of their current works in progress.
