Teaser Tuesday: The Beckoning Bells
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. This week I will give you two teasers of my own short story, 'The Beckoning Bells'...I know, shameless self plugging here. Am I ashamed? Not really, I stayed up really late on multiple nights for this! Want to know what has me really excited? My amazing friend in Camberwell Art School, London, has agreed to make a cover for it! It might only be 6 pages, but it will be awesome! Anyways, let's get on with the teasers!
'In short the villagers enjoy each others company. But then the church appears and a silence falls across the crowd. The light of their candles slowly creeps up the big square brick building. The stones seemed black and weather beaten. At the edges of the building, vines crept up the wall with blue and purple flowers that reflected the candle light. The children gaze in amazement as the lights slowly creep up the massive tower.'
'He became gaunt and neglected his appearance. A young girl once saw him on his balcony where he stood staring at the village. She ran home and told her friends he had turned into an old gnarly tree in winter.'
What do you think? I don't have a cover to share yet, but I will share as soon as I do. So, what are you teasing with?
