I Am Writing – 18/1/21 – Winter Duet

Running a bit late with this one this week…

This week’s WIP snippet is from Winter Duet. I’ve finally finished edits, and giving the story one final read through before formatting.

“They knew exactly where they were going,” Michel said once they were clear. “I would have expected them to be at least looking around if they were involved in a manhunt.”

“Perhaps Reiniger has given up and is moving out?” Ken suggested. “If he’s found who or what he’s looking for…” He shuddered. “I’m going to ignore that. After all, he hasn’t found us, right?”

“It depends who he’s looking for. He knows Kristopher and I are travelling together. If…”

If Reiniger had found Kit with Leo, it wouldn’t take long to figure out who Leo was. His dress and lack of language skills would make it very obvious. Reiniger knew Michel; they’d worked together for months. He’d also guess that having Kit in custody meant Michel was probably not far away.

“Do you think this could be a trap and there will be soldiers waiting for us?” Ken asked.

“Maybe. I’m not turning back, though. I’ve got to make sure Kristopher is all right. If they’ve found him…” Michel knew how stubborn Kit could be, especially when he was doing what he thought was necessary to protect someone he cared about.

“It rather negates the whole mission if they have him, doesn’t it?”

“I don’t care about the damn mission,” Michel muttered. “I’ve seen what those men are capable of.” He shuddered.

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
