A Paragraph from an Upcoming Novel

Woke up late today at 5:35am. Working on modifying Nook and Kindle interiors, adding Twitter and Facebook links to connect with readers. Wrote one paragraph a few months ago. Can’t wait to expand on he story. Here’s the first bit of writing on a novel I call The Masonic Civil War Conspiracy:

“The crumbling stairs descended down. Boards rotting into splinters and fungi. The only light was from the lid-like doorway above.

I entered.

The hovel consisted of cast-off shelves sagging under a storm of books. A fistful of scrolls stuck here and there. A typists desk sat in the theatrical center. Perched atop, a gas lamp smelled of oil. I struck a match. The flame swelled from my fingertips as my other hand adjusted the knob to encourage the glow.

As the darkness parted, I looked about. My mind raced. Where to start? Somewhere n this crumbling deposit of literary debris was the treasure I sought. I picked a corner, pulled the first book from an inglorious height, and began.”
