It’s difficult to describe just how proud I am of my kid for finishing his first novel. It’s off to be professionally edited soon.
Short blog entry today, because I want to send you over to Khalil’s interbloggy thing to read his sample chapter. If you’ve ever been into roleplaying, satire, Lord of the Rings or have a warped sense of humor, this may be right up your alley.
My favorite lines from the first chapter:
“Well, since we’re all about to die,” said Magus, turning toward Aran… Aarawen—She Who Can Not Be Pronounced—with a grin on his face. “We might as well-”
“Try something and I pull your spleen out through your throat.”
Update: Khalil published this book shortly after his 18th birthday, and it’s getting solid reviews! Check it out here at Amazon
