Weekend Writing Warriors... Running From Shadows! #8Sunday #BookentinesDay #iHeartBooks

Weekend Writing Warriors! 

(NEW) Tomorrow I'm showing you something that only five other people have ever seen...a scene from the original FIRST draft of Witch Way to Turn. Yes, I'm a wee bit terrified o.O ~~~~~> (here) It's for a good cause though, saving the lovely Heather Jacobs's soul from my alter ego...the Banshee ;)

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Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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 about to play the card she knows he'll have to pay attention to.

“If you don’t, I’ll go find that shadow demon.”

He laughed. “Right. Sure you will.”

Who did he think he was? Did he think I wasn’t brave enough? Well, okay, maybe I wasn’t. But he didn’t have to know that. “Watch me.”


She's not bluffing! What will Pax do?? Tune in next week for more Greta and Pax!! ;)

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

  3. Congratulations on the award! Your heroine here certainly is brave, if possibly a bit foolish - can't wait to see how this all plays out. Terrific snippet!
