Camp NaNo Excerpt: The Aperture

So, in keeping with taking a vacation of sorts from the blog, I’m leaning heavily on a first draft excerpt again this week. Well, it’s a vacation if you don’t count the almost 81K words I’ve written since the first of the month. It’s a strong pace, but there’s a chance I may not finish this month. I’ve begun to think the story will run longer than I expected.

Apparently a longer novel is what happens when you have two main characters who are often apart in the story. Whoops. I’ll press on, though, and worry about length later. In many ways I’m not too worried since it is fantasy and the fourth in a series. Things are bound to be more complicated.

So, another excerpt from Bk4, Traversing the Astral Plane

This is still early in the novel and marks the first time Amatha has accessed the Astral Plane since she arrived in the real world. It’s also the first time it’s occurred when there were others around, including the witches Wersa and Kercar (newly adopted aunts) and Prayleen (newly adopted friend).

Unfortunately, what Amatha sees only she can see. Or maybe not…
