Weekend Writing Warriors: 02/24/13 Betrothal: “Choices”

Welcome back to the Weekend Writing Warriors again. I’m so enjoying seeing my old friends and finding new authors. Hope you all have a great hop!

Betrothal with Logo

Today you get more from Betrothal, my medieval romance set in the 14th century.  These sentences show what Alyse has been doing while Geoffrey is having his crisis ( if you want to see what happened up to this point, check out yesterday’s post from Sweet Saturday)   If you’d like to catch up, you can read some of the posts from last week here.  In this snippet, Alyse is telling Princess Johanna and her waiting women about her news from Geoffrey.

She tried not to smile too broadly, lest she seem boastful, but could not keep the satisfaction out of her voice. “Sir Geoffrey has asked me to choose which knight and lady we are to portray.”

The room buzzed like an excited hive at her words, each lady expressing an opinion about who Alyse should choose.

“Oh, choose Sir Lancelot, Alyse, with you as Elaine.”

“Anne, you know Prince Edward will be Lancelot.”

“What about Sir Perceval?” Maurya reminded her.

“Sir Perceval could be a good choice,” Alyse admitted, “but he is sometimes portrayed as uncouth or loutish. I would not want Sir Geoffrey seen as such.”

If you want more, please come back next week! 🙂  Right now, you can click here to hop on to more Writing Warrior posts!  And thanks for coming by!

  2. Carrie-Anne says:

    She’s very intelligent and strong-minded. She’ll probably make a sound choice for the character.


  3. Geoffrey is definitely neither uncouth nor loutish. Alyse has the right idea there. Love this book and I’m enjoying seeing it introduced (all too slowly) here on your blog.

    I like her. She’s taking what she knows about him under consideration in making her decision. Nice 8.


  10. How fun! Can’t wait to see the final choice.


  11. I like that she’s trying to make in informed, wise choice for them both. Really like this story – excellent excerpt!


  12. That last sentiment sounds promising. Sounds like she might be warming to him, LOL! Your stories are so thoroughly immersed in atmosphere – they always capture me as a reader.
