Bard of Pain (fantasy novella) - Chapter 2 of 7
In the battle-weary lands of the Great Peninsula, only one fate is worse than being taken prisoner by the Lieutenant: being taken prisoner if you are the Lieutenant.
Note: Not a work-in-progress; the story is finished and is being serialized weekly. I announced this novella last year in some places, but I'm reserializing it online in honor of the publication of the booktrailer, the e-book editions, and the audio edition. Click on the next link for all of these. (And, um, I fixed the broken links.)
