The first edit of the first five chapters of the Tower of Dreams has begun. A special shout out to my friend Becca who was a tremendous asset in making this first edit. While I am busy working on it, I thought I would share this snippet of the first chapter:
“Brother Knights,” the Hochmeister proclaimed as he rode his horse before the line of men. “I require five volunteers to ride forward with the Masters of the Brotherhood of Olympus to secure that tower yonder. Death is nearly certain. Glory shall not be shared of this day, save for in the company of our Heavenly Father, for none shall ever know that a few good knights rode to battle on this Friday, the thirteen of January, in the year 1469 of our Lord. I cannot command you to ride with us, nor can I condemn you if you choose otherwise. The path ahead for the Kanzler will be wrought with peril, and he will require all of you to be at his ready.”
The Hochmeister turned his horse, drew his sword from its scabbard and raised it above him as he rode in front of his men one final time.
“What say you good brothers,” Reuss von Plauen shouted as he started his horse into a canter. “Who shall ride with his Hochmeister, death awaits us my lads, onward to battle, onward to glory!”
