The Third Daughter – prologue

I’m now at the reading-out-loud rewrite stage (I shall think of a better name for this process someday). I came across this idea last time around and it was a revelation how interesting it was to listen to the sentences rolling out. The effect on the eventual published book, The Emperor’s Servant, surprised me and made me wonder about getting an audio version of my novels. One day when I have the money!

In the meantime, here is the prologue to The Third Daughter. Hope you enjoy it and listen out for more readings over the next few weeks.

  1. Fiona, that prologue is fabulous. Still fabulous, I should say, as I loved it the first time I read it. Got to be one of the best autobiographical introductions ever made by any historical character. I am on tenterhooks to read the final book!
