I think its only right to give my new readers an teaser’s peek into my first novel Damaris.  I think the Prologue would make a great introduction to those who took the time to check out my little piece of the writer’s blogosphere!

And hey, let’s be honest, a lot people tend to skip the Prologue anways so what a great way to make sure it doesn’t go to waste! 🙂  Let me know what you guys think!

The doors of the Critique corner are now open!

It was dawn before the fire finally died down.  The smoke from inside Barron’s walls continued to escape into the air, the ashes of the flames victims dancing in the wind.  Damaris watched from the safety of the tree’s shadows as the farmers and herders from the adjacent villages of Camden and Aster, carried out those bodies that weren’t incinerated on wagons.  She was unaffected by the sudden wails of sorrow that ripped through the morning’s silence, damning their God Amil for allowing such a tragedy to happen.  As if they willed it, the rain began to fall, making the townspeople’s tears indistinguishable as they mourned. Damaris wasn’t sure how many were dead from the Festival the night before.  The fire took on a mind of its own after awhile, not relenting until her heart was satisfied.  Those who ridiculed her burned.  Those who harassed her burned.  Those who possessed the mere thought of causing her and her family harm burned. 

She wasn’t sorry for any of it.
