Here is another excerpt from the finished version of Descent (The Birthrite Series, #1). The book is pretty much finished, save for double checking historical details and correcting some typos, as I'm finally to a point where I can read the book straight through pretty quickly without having to constantly stop and make changes (YAY!). While formatting the book for release might take a little time, the planned release date is November 30th (at least to Smashwords and Amazon) with Sacred Atonement (The Birthrite Series, #1.5) set for a Christmas Day release.
I had originally wanted to release the two on the same date, but I found myself concentrating so much on perfecting Descent that I did set Sacred Atonement to the side for the time being (which was the better thing to do anyway). I also wanted to have a pre-order set up for the two books, and hopefully I will be able to for the subsequent books in the series. But in writing a story, I am the type who will be making corrections and changes all the way down to the wire in order to make it as perfect as possible, though we shall see in the future installments.
For the time being, I hope you enjoy these excerpts from the (nearly) finished version of Descent. This next one is from Part 3 of the book, which is titled "The Oath." This chapter is the introduction of the incomparable Teresa.
Read after the jump. :)
