#FreeviewFriday Part I : Eye of the Soul #Fantasy #Excerpt

Welcome to Freeview Friday! Thanks J.A.Belfield for this awesome idea.

Each week I'm going to share a little snippet of my debut fantasy  novel, Eye of the Soul, which releases from J. Taylor Publishing on Oct. 7th. 

I hope you'll follow along each week and get a feel for Hyla and her world.


A branch smacked Hyla in the face. Eyes tearing, she blindly pushed onward. The ground dropped beneath her feet and she pitched forward tumbling end over end, rocks and brambles attacking her body. A crack and sharp pain sent her head reeling and brought her to a stop. Damp earth gave way to Hyla’s clawing fingers as she tried to blink her eyesight clear.
A shadow loomed above, blocking what little moonlight filtered through the trees.
“Gerlak told you not to run,” a rough voice said.
Powerless to stop the swinging arm, Hyla closed her eyes and embraced pain’s exploding darkness.


Hope you enjoyed it! Be sure to stop back next week.

As J.A. Belfield has said, any and all are welcome to join her in this weekly shenanigan. HOWEVER, if you do so, she URGES you to keep the shared snippets short and sweet. Mine (like hers) will be a maximum of TEN (10) sentences. To help identification of these posts, we’ll be hashtagging them (for Twitter purposes) as #FreeviewFriday. Feel free to knick said hashtag for your own Freeview Friday posts. Hope you’ll join us!
