Come see my tech-savvy skillz >>> Weekend Writing Warriors... Running From Shadows! #8Sunday #iHeartBooks



Huzzah! I put that button there all by myself!! I am sooo tech savvy! :P


(NEW) Come see something that only like five other people have ever seen...a scene from the original FIRST draft of Witch Way to Turn. Yes, it's kinda terrifying! o.O lol ~~~~~> (here) It's for a good cause though, saving the lovely Heather Jacobs's soul from my alter ego...the Banshee ;) PLUS, there are prizes!!!

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

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!! 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.
 ****
(Read last week's post) Set-up... Pax has told Greta that he's a unicorn. A unicorn!!! So, of course, Greta is all: sure, yeah, whatever... Prove it! She needs more than talk of ancient legends, and she's playin' her card! Let's see how well it works out...

I headed for the door.

Touched the handle.

Opened it.

Glancing over my shoulder, I saw him. Unmoved.

“I’m watching.” He smiled.


Crap.

Pax has called her bluff! Now what?? Tune in next week for more Greta and Pax!! ;)

Thanks again for stopping by! Your support and feedback is greatly appreciated!
