Fair Wind

Fair Wind is officially launched today!

Otta heard wood squeaking against wood. Around her, beams contracted and groaned. Something outside thumped against the wooden wall at her head with regular monotony, making her skull ache. The darkness was red-black and flickered with fluctuating light.

The air she breathed stank of fish, sweat, vomit and excrement and her lips tasted of salt and bile. Her body was bruised as though she had been fighting a kaerling for an entire day; every muscle screamed with tightness and pain and her stomach felt empty. Empty was good, she told herself.

Across the room she heard a groan and someone retched. Not again! What did he have left to throw up? She thought about lifting her hands to her ears to block out the noise but her arms felt too heavy and for some reason, her body did not respond. The sounds of vomiting ceased and the sharp stink of bile made her gag convulsively.

Otta swallowed hard, feeling how rough and sore her mouth and throat were. For the first time in hours, she wasn’t feeling nauseous. Did that mean she was over the sickness that had suddenly assailed her?

Her narrow bunk lurched suddenly and she felt as though she might fall out. But the plank at the side kept her from tipping onto the floor. Her stomach curdled as the room righted itself and she concentrated on not feeling sick. Tentatively, she opened her eyes.

Above is an extract from my latest e-book, Fair Wind.

Can the companions conceal Otta’s kaerling heritage when they land on the Isle of Kiros? And, how will Lored find the herb woman who has the remedy he and Otta will need when they set sail again in pursuit of the kaerlings? Find out in Fair Wind!

β€œI thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It’s a beautifully written story and I find all of the characters interesting. The descriptions, particularly of the sea voyage, were fabulous. I can feel myself being present in the places described. There are lots of hints of problems to come and foreshadowing which all adds to a sense of mystery.” E Baxter
