Six Sentence Sunday: Running From Shadows... Such a Tease! #SSS #YA #PNR

Hooray for Six Sentence Sunday!

Thank you for stopping by. I'm excited to participate with such a fantastic group of writers! 

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent and an editor!! Squee!!

Follow Greta Shore (a 17-year-old, black-haired wiccan beauty) and Paxton "Pax" Craig (an 18-year-old, blond-haired college student with a dark secret) as they discover the fate of their forbidden love. 
 ****
Last week... Pax notices Greta is bleeding and invites her into his cabin to bandage her up. She's nervous about being alone with this boy, despite him saving her from something she thinks doesn't exist. He turns to leave. She asks where he's going and then immediately regrets the question. She isn’t some crazed fangirl that can’t live if the object of her affection walks away. This isn’t her. 

Yeah, sure, she doesn't know where she is. Okay, so she's bleeding. A little. Does she really need this boy? Not the first time she'd been lost in the woods. Probably not the last. She could find her way home again. The problem…

I didn’t want to. Wherever he was going, I wanted to follow. And that scared me more than anything that had happened so far.

He kept his back to me. “Inside and I would do the same if I were you, but it’s your choice. Take a chance with me or the shadow demon.”

Will she go in or try to make it out of the woods by herself? And is he for real about the shadow demons? Eventually you'll find out my darlings! Bwahaha Tune in next week for more Greta and Pax!! ;) Thanks again for stopping by! Your support and feedback is greatly appreciated! Get a sneak peek for more awesome authors at SSS.

  10. Boo hoo, I'm sad that there are only six sentences... maybe needs to be a sample Sunday so we get more, then again, these six definitely left me hanging. Pax and Greta share a lot of chemistry. Thanks for sharing!
