A Flip of a Coin Snippet 06/02/18

Welcome everyone, hope this weekend finds you well. I’m recovering from a nasty cold and I’m happy to participate in this week’s blog hop!

For those who don’t know, the weekend writing warrior blog hop is a weekly event where writers sign up (check the linky link button below) and submit and 8-10 sentence snippet of their WIP. I strongly recommend you check out the list (there’s something for everyone) and read, follow, like or comment.

This week I am continuing with A Flip of a Coin. Last time, we left our charismatic thief contemplating the strangers suspiciously drinking in the tavern of the neighbourhood gang boss Flann. A loud argument erupts from upstairs where the gang boss and the leader of the newcomers held a private meeting. Flann’s voice bellowed from the room, cursing at the stranger as he rushed down the stairs. The rat-faced man and the strangers rush out of the Painted Horse as Flann threw books down the stairs. (Heavily edited to fix the rules)

A Flip of a Coin:

“Looks like it’s my turn,” Chris grinned

“Oh no, Chris, don’t. You know how he gets when he’s in a foul mood.”

“No worries, my little sapphire.” He stroked her chin before racing to the stairs, climbing them two at a time. “Hey there, boss man!”

“I’m not in the mood,” Flann grumbled, “go find someone else to bother.” Flann, a large imposing figure with wild red hair and matching moustache, took a swig from an unlabelled bottle.

“C’mon boss, I’m dying for a job, you gotta have something for me?”

“Seems to me you have enough jobs on your plate. Owen saw you at the cathedral burning last night.”


That’s it for now, thanks for stopping by! Hope you all have a great week and I’ll see you next time!


A Flip of a Coin Synopsis: 

Chris, a charismatic thief falls victim to his own curiosity as he stumbles upon gruesome crimes in the back alleys of Lollardum’s slums. Convinced the crimes will spark a race war between Mages and Innocents (those who do not use magic), he enlists his best friend to investigate and prevent the crimes and fear from spreading to the rest of the continent. But as any thief knows, luck and circumstances can change with a flip of a coin.

  1. Well Chris is certainly brave or foolish. I think it’s a bit disconcerting the boss knows where he was…enjoyed the snippet, promises a LOT more story ahead!
