Weekend Writing Warriors: This had better be PTSD... RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday

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Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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.
Set-up (last week)... Greta runs away from her surprise engagement party through the woods. Pax saves her from a shadow demon. Oh, and he's a unicorn! 
Back at Pax's cabin, Greta wants to know why he was out in the woods, but Pax being Pax cleverly sidesteps...

“I could ask you the same thing,” he said.

As he took a swig of his coffee, I couldn’t help noticing a long, thin white scar on his neck.

That’s new.

Great. What the hell did that mean?

Oh man, this had better be PTSD. Still, I couldn’t help but look at the scar. How had he gotten something like that?

Tune in next week to find out more!

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

Because being a warrior is hard work, here's a vid from the Running From Shadows playlist to reward all you sexy, sweaty peeps ;)

  1. Actually, I had wondered why she was in the woods, but him being a unicorn I just figured he was out for a run. Must be more to it than that.

  2. Interesting new wrinkle you threw in there! Another great snippet...

  3. Good question for her to ask. Great 8.
