One of the great things about the Web is that, along with its nasty ability to suck up time as you surf through the latest blogs or catch up on the minutiae of your favorite author/sports team/celebrity/etc., is that you can always find some free fiction somewhere.
I was lucky enough to be contacted by the FantasyBookSpot Web site, and they wanted to run an exclusive excerpt from my upcoming novel, A Gathering of Doorways. I was all to happy to oblige. Here's all of chapter one (with the Prologue tucked in there at the beginning, just because I'm nice like that). Happy reading, and if you liked what you read, please do leave a comment at their site. Thanks!
