... in reading the first three chapters of Balfrith. Geekwif and I have completed our edits, and while it will still go through another round (or maybe two) of revisions, I think this is very close to what will appear in the final draft. As we continue our editing process, chapter, by chapter, I could do similar releases, perhaps in bundles of two or three, until we are done with this round. In the end, you'd have an extremely rare and perhaps valuable some day* rough draft direct from the author, which you could cherish in years to come, gift to your children... or just delete, as you see fit.
If you're interested, you can email me at thurianknight at gmail dot com. Please put [Balfrith sample] (including the square brackets) in the subject, so I can find and tag it easily amongst all my other emails. Once I receive your email, I will send you the sample right away, in PDF format. I'll keep this offer open for a couple of weeks, just to gauge interest.
Finally, if you do sign up and enjoy the sample, please feel free to share it around to your friends and family, and I'd especially appreciate it if you sent them over to this blog to sign up for themselves. Again, it will help me gauge interest in the story, and hopefully give them some enjoyment perusing my blog posts from the past couple of years.
