Happy Hump day and Hook day. Today I decided to switch to my upcoming release, Torkel’s Chosen. My hero is going through a selection ceremony and hasn’t had much luck in the past.
Torkel bit back his frustration as the females ran past his position in the sands. One after another they squealed and laughed as they selected his brethren. True Enotians with their blond hair and light-colored eyes. Through it all he maintained his stance with his hands clasped behind his back, legs spread wide. Another year, his last in the sands.
The ache in his chest caught him off guard. No matter how much he thought he’d prepared, disappointment coiled its way through his heart. To make matters worse, there was one more male in the numbers than females so he’d walk from the sands alone. His shame to bear in stoic silence.
“I’m not sure how this works. Do I just hand you the necklace or put it on your neck?”
Torkel jerked and glanced down at the short woman standing in front of him. He’d tried to ignore her presence when her footsteps slowed in front of him. “Pardon?”

Good one. Who is this lady?
His heroine is a woman from Earth Susan.
I’m glad he was chosen. Hope we get to meet her soon.
I might be able to get more detail in the next hook Lyndi 🙂

Anxiously expecting Michelle Howard’s new release Torkel’s Chosen!
I’m counting down until it’s released!
Me too, Toni. LOL. My nerves are strung tight
Stoic is the perfect word. Standing there would be like waiting to get picked at school.
Isnt that the most horrible feeling Victoria? I think many have experienced that feeling at one time or another in life
Lovely snippet. Glad he got choosen.
I’m very glad he was Chosen Iris 🙂
