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Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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! But Pax is being stubborn, so Greta says she's outta there! Pax has called her bluff, and now she can either risk being in the Red Forest with a demon or admit defeat. Erm, defeat?? Never...

I walked out and closed the door behind me.

Other than the moon and the light coming through the windows, darkness pooled all around me. The demon could be anywhere, hiding in any number of shadows.

Sucking in a deep breath, I wiped my palms on my dress. I’d screwed up. I didn’t want to find my way home alone, in the dark. But if I went back inside, he’d win. Steadying my nerves the best I could, I started down the steps.


Greta's doing it! She's still walking away, even though Pax called her bluff. 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!

  1. Sorry, but there's no way I'm walking in the dark with that thing nearby. I wouldn't care if he won or not, I'd go back in.

  3. Greta's no fool. I think she'll rethink this. Besides, the guy inside is much hotter than some demon! Great snippet!

  7. Teenagers. This is the point where you yell at the TV screen "Don't go in there! Can't you hear the scary music! Run!"

  10. Yeah, she should just swallow her pride and go back inside. But... that wouldn't be nearly as interesting as braving the Red Forest with a demon. Great snippet. Can't wait to see what happens next.
