Weekend Writing Warriors... Running From Shadows! #YA #8sentences #JABBIC #BookGiveawayAnnouncement

Weekend Writing Warriors! 

(If you haven't seen my kidnapping...check it out!!) *cues the song Hero by Skillet* Rescue me ~~~~~> (here) 

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Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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! He acts cryptic, but she's not about to let this drop.

I closed the gap between us and looked up. He had to be close to six-four. I held my ground. “What’s the second thing?”

“I don’t take orders from my assignments.”

We stared at one another as if our gazes alone held us upright. I didn’t want to play this card, but I would. I wanted proof. 

What card will she play?? Tune in next week for more Greta and Pax!! ;)
