Revisions are done on the second book in my Highland Talents series, Highland Seer!  I sent them back to my editor on Friday, so I’m hopeful that Highland Seer gets into the queue for a fall release, and that I have a new cover to debut soon.

In the meantime, here’s another snippet from Highland Seer. This follows soon after last week’s snippet.  Enjoy!

The Lathans have found a clan in trouble.  There aren’t many fighting-age men left, and no one to train the younger lads.  Donal is determined to find a solution to this problem, but he’s got his work cut out for him.  The half-trained young man who is as close to a master of arms as the MacKyrie’s have finds Donal and Bram working with the  younger lads and takes offense.  Donal challenges him to show his stuff, but Micheil isn’t inclined to treat it as a demonstration.

Enjoy my Six Sentence Sunday Snippet!

Micheil growled an oath and shoved through the crowd into the circle.  “They’re too young to take up fighting,” he argued.  “No one would accost them.”

“Were those lads on the whisky wagon too young to be waving their dirks at brigands armed with claymores, then?”

That stopped Micheil in his tracks.  He drew his weapon.

Donal grinned.  “That’s better.  Let’s dance, shall we?”

    Love the attitude that comes through in such a short snippet. Thanks for sharing!

  3. So caring for the younger potential fighters. Great emotional scene.

  4. Going to be quite an epic “dance”, I think! At least everyone has the same desire to take good care of the young…terrific snippet.

    Very persuasive argument. I hope they train them well. Great snippet!
