Hey, guys! Today I’m announcing the title of my book! Can you guess what it is? If you guessed Operation: Green Serpent you are correct! I am so excited about this book. It’s coming along perfectly
with only minor writer’s block.
And today I’m even giving you a teaser of my book!
Aren’t I nice? I’m so excited (I already said that, didn’t I?) And I’m not going to keep you waiting much longer. Alright, I’m not going to keep you waiting at all!
Cassy walked to the wooded area and started to reach down for the sticks. She was reflecting at what a lovely summer day it was, not too hot but not too cold.
She saw a lovely stick, just the right size.
As she went to pick it up, she was struck by what lovely colors were on the ground.
She had almost grasped it when she heard a startling rattle.
Yes! They do deal with a rattler but that isn’t even the best part I’m going to share. If you haven’t already read my characters, you can do so here.
“He’s here somewhere,” Cassy said.
“Yeah, right behind you,” Cam said as a loud whoosh of air went onto Cassy’s neck.
“What?” she gasped, turning and grasping Ruther’s halter.
“Cassy, do you see those lights,” Cam’s voice was suddenly strained and scared.
“Where?” Cassy turned to look.
“Right there,” Cam gasped.
What?? Lights? Where? Oops, I forgot to put the best part in there. Where do the girls see lights?
The children looked at each other. Now, it seemed almost silly to ask but Cassy wasn’t easily daunted.
“Jonathan was going to ask,” Cassy smiled.
“All right, son, ask away,” Mr. Adams commanded. Jonathan looked up and said,
“We were wondering if we could sleep near the graveyard. Then, if we see any lights we’ll know something’s wrong.”
“You know, that’s not a bad idea. What do you think, Susan?”
Mrs. Adams smiled on her children as she said, “I don’t think that’s a bad idea. Let the children camp outside if they want.”
Ah, I just gave away where they saw the lights. Well, at least you won’t be kept in suspense.
I should have kept you in suspense. Uh, ignore that part. Anyway, let’s go on to the next part.
She swiftly jumped on Temper’s back. She realized her mistake even more swiftly. Everything would have gone just fine if they weren’t in a closed building. In all her careful preparation, she had forgotten she was still in a barn with a small open door.
Haha! I’m dying! Poor Cam, I’m sorry to do this to her but you have to agree, that mistake is a bit funny 😉 Also, who would name their horse Temper? That’s just plan weird.
Cassy found herself in bright light. Raven started plunging, upset at being confined inside a small place. Cassy gripped Raven’s neck and waited for her to calm down. Cassy felt her foot slip out of a stirrup and to her alarm, Rave bolted. Cassy slid off and felt the overwhelming feeling of falling.
*Gasp!* What happens to Cassy? Is she seriously hurt? Oh, the poor girl! What happens next?
Hehe, I’m the only one that knows. (Not even the people I’ve let read the story have read that far!) Well, if you stay around, I’ll eventually let out some more. But, seriously, what do you think about it?
What do you think about the title? Would you read a book with that name?
Okay, I’m also doing a shout-out for Pegasus Expert. She has her amazing blog here and she’d like you to check out her amazing horse filled idea here. If you do check it out, you’ll find my two amazing horses I’ve made up.
Okay, now, I’m not as self-conceited as I sound.
Actually, I am. Anyway, I thought you might be interested in Operation: Green Serpent for its own sake, not mine. Also, I wasn’t going to say anything about Pegasus’ thingy but she requested a shout-out, so here it is.
Also, I’m hosting my very first Lovely Links in Literature or LLIL for short. I would love it if you joined in! It’s going to be a lot of fun. Check it out here. Also, for all of you who asked questions about it, I will be doing a clarifying post with the characters on Tuesday.
See you all later!
P.S. If you steal any ideas out of this blog post…you will be hunted!
P.P.S. If you are a veteran and you’re reading this, thank you so much for all you have done! I really appreciate it.
