Yay – it’s Saturday, that means another snippet for Sci-Fi Fantasy Saturday! I am following on with The Brinded Cat, an urban fantasy story which is free to download from Smashwords. In the last snippet Sam had hysterics over Fin ‘comforting’ the witchy-widow:
‘The problem is,’ I said while knuckling the tears from my eyes, ‘you’re not a widower. What would Anne say about you comforting Widow Twankey?’
Fin’s marriage was an unhappy one, but then he was a mage. I would never get involved with a mage. Put them near a witch and they’d be as faithful as a tom-cat.
‘Hmm, anyway, we have a familiar to rescue so when you’re ready?’
‘You have a familiar to rescue. Go and impress your widow and leave me out of it.’
He looked away before admitting, ‘I can’t. You know I have a thing about heights.’
And that’s your lot. Of course, if you like what you read follow the Smashwords link for your very own free copy and then leave me lots of reviews – it’s the life blood of writers, well that and our actual words 😉
