Weekend Writing Warriors: Now you see his horn. Now you don't... RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday #PlayListVid


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Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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! Pax is stubborn, so he says he won't shift into his full monoceros form, but he shows her his horn and... Holy. Crap. That's a horn!
He asks her...

“Had enough proof?”

I nodded.

Yup, his horn wasn’t going anywhere unless he wanted it to. And then…it was gone. Retracted in less than a heartbeat. The skin of his forehead smooth again. Strong.

Furrowed, as he watched me.

Hmm, what's he thinking? And, so, uh now that she's seen it...you know she'll wanna see it again!

Tune in next week for more Greta and Pax!!

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

  5. Did she (or you) ever say how big it was? I'm trying to visualize--a slender golden spike, or a thick horn like a rhino's? Inquiring minds want to know these things! LOL Great trick with the instant retraction. Loved this 8!

    1. LOL Hmm...you know, I don't know that I have ever mentioned. I see it as like 8-10 inches. More like a slender, golden horn...but tough like a rhino horn. Thanks for commenting, Jenna! :D

  7. Is this something he whips out to all the girls, or does he just show it on special occasions? I definitely want to know his thoughts too!

    1. LOL Nope, definitely doesn't whip it out to all the girls! :P Monoceri are swoon to secrecy, but Greta has him wrapped around her little finger...mostly ;) Thanks for stopping by!
