Sneak Peek ~ Queen of Dust

Julie's still tweaking it....
From the Prologue, "Goat Horn Woman":

Hear now the words of Matawai….

I am who am Matawai am Demon of the North. Queen of Antwari, Queen of Kuwari, I have taken a jewel of the mountains.

There will come a time when scholars will speak as though I were a sorceress, capable of turning dust into gold. They will say my name as though it means death and recount with horror the blood I’ve shed.

This is not new. I am a goddess of rumors and speculation. Listen in the marketplace; you will hear the frightened chatter. Sit in the temple halls, hear them whisper my name.

For I am the Goat Horn Queen of the mountains, forged from barren rock and brittle furs. I have redrawn the lines of Anseti, and now not even history dares deny me my name
.

Update: Book 3

Yes, we are behind, but in our defense, March has been an exceedingly busy month in our personal lives.  Which is why I give extra props to Julie; she's almost done with the cover for Book 3 while I'm still sorting out my thoughts.

Book 3 is going to be a bit more intense, which a heavy focus on the women of Antwari - Matawai, Kimmeka, Ammetwa (yes, she's back), and Onnoka.  Selo and Inya will star as always, but this one's really for the Antwari ladies.

And the cover Julie's creating?  BOSS.
