Weekend Writing Warriors: They don't feed on witches... RUNNING FROM SHADOWS #8Sunday #Unicorns #YA

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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 partthrough the woodsPax saves her from a shadow demon. Oh, and he's a unicorn! 
Back at Pax's cabin, Greta and Pax talk. He tells her that the shadow has fed on her and marked her...

Was he trying to annoy me? “Well, yeah.” I held up my wrists. “If someone tried to take my blood, I would definitely know.”

“They don’t feed on witches’ blood.”

“What then?”

“That doesn’t matter. All you need—”

Tune in next week for more!

  1. Wait. What? Yes it does matter how! Way to leave us hanging. Good job! :)

    (No snippet for me this week. I got veggies to process.)

  2. Ack! Oh my gosh, you can't just leave it there!! I need to know more!

  3. Not FAIR, I want to know what they feed on LOL! Terrific snippet, as always (how many days is it to the next excerpt...?!)

  4. Every single week you end on a hook! You're killing me! LOL. Loving this so much!

  5. Lots of cliffhangers here: who wants - or doesn't want - her blood? Why don't they feed on witches blood? Does that mean she's a witch? Who are they?
    Definitely want more!

  6. So they use witches in some other way?

  7. Interesting snippet and certainly raises questions. I certainly want to learn more. Good luck with the agent.

  8. I think if I was her I"d beg to differ that it certainly does matter! Yikes!

  9. Cliffhanger!

    I'm guessing she's going to interrupt him for dismissing how she's been fed on as something that doesn't matter. Because someone needs to tell him, 'hey, no, that's important info!'

  10. I cant believe it ended there. teasing 8 since I want to know what he's going to tell her and how she'll react

  11. Damn, that unicorn is being so enigmatic. "That doesn't matter" really? Like really? Her life is in danger, he better give her all the information he has.
