I Am Writing – 21/12/20 – Comes a Horseman

This week’s snippet is from Comes a Horseman, book 3 of Echoes Rising.

“Perhaps now would be a good time to tell us why the SS is after you.” Sébastien moved towards the bottom of the stairs, blocking the way out.

“If our operation has been completely compromised, why isn’t the church already overrun with soldiers?” Matt spoke slowly and watched Sébastien carefully. Did he think Sébastien was going to turn on them?

“My guess is because the traitor has decided to keep this location safe for some reason,” Nicolas said. “Keep himself safe while he betrays the rest of us.” He levelled his gun at Matt.

“We need to work together.” Matt shook his head. He raised his hands slowly in a sign of surrender. “We’re wasting time, and this is probably what our enemies want. Why spend resources finding us if all they have to do is wait for us to make a mistake and reveal ourselves, because we’re too busy squabbling?”

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
