I decided to try one of these host threads. I'll post a 300 word excerpt from my book, Dragons and Cicadas, and you post if you're interested in it, and in your same post you will post a 300 word excerpt from your book. Here goes:
"Where will we go next?" he asked his older brother.
"I don't know," Romanov tore at the white cloth with his bare hands.
He bawled it, reached up, and hurled the cloth across the street. The cloth was torn and dirtied by the wave of carriages and bikes that swam over it. Tverskaya ulitsa was booming with young folks trying to make the most of their nightlife. Romanov saw a crowd of friends passing by, all of them dressed in neat clothes, he wanted to be like them. A sweet-looking girl smiled at him through the descreet cover of her bamboo fan. He mouthed the words, "take me with you," but her reply was a small giggle.
"We should go back home," Kasiliev grabbed his brother's arms for comfort, "it's dangerous. What if mamulya's stories were right? What if somebody takes us?"
Romanov quietly hushed to his brother, "stay calm, sobrat. No one will take us."
Kasiliev was suspicious of the surroundings. Most of the buildings were covered in vibrant neon lights and digital billboards. A storefront for La Repubblica Draconizica advertised the latest gowns and imperial-style suits. The Moscow PSR tramcar slowly made it's passage down the busy street. Carriages and bikers hurried out of it's way as it came rolling through. It stopped at a busy building to pick up the crowd of commuters.
"Can we ride the tramcar?" asked Kasiliev.
"We don't have any money." Said Romanov.
He settled himself into a laying position and rested his head on his worn bag. Kasiliev remained sitting up, enjoying the questions and wonders his mind raised about Tverskaya.
His attention was drawn to a clique of noble boys exiting a popular bar. He read the sign, which was embellished in neon lights and a statue of a golden Wyvern.
Your turn, and are you interested?
