Hello, Manic Followers! Do you know what day it is? It’s WIPpet Wednesday! This is almost my favorite day of the week! What’s your favorite day? I love sharing my WIP with you. Subscribe to the blog and get a chance to win a free copy when I publish it later this year.
WIPpet Wednesday is a blog hop in which we post a portion of our work in progress that somehow relates to the date. Since math and I are not friends (really) I’ve simplified this year. This week I’ll be posting 18 (or so) lines from chapter 1. I hope you love it!

“I had a team, our leader died and we split up. I was the weak link so they abandoned me.”
Lucius looked at her. “But you can heal?”
She nodded her head and shrugged, “They figured I wasn’t worth my rations.” Her belly rolled with hunger and she fought it off. He was willing to help, she couldn’t let hunger ruin that now.
What do you think of Amy and her predicament? Will Lucius help her or take advantage of her? More importantly, when will she eat?
