Weekend Writing Warriors: Would you know if you were being fed on? 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Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows, currently being read by a lovely agent!!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...

“Wait...back up. The demon has fed on me. Like, already?”

He nodded.

“No way.” I shook my head. “This is crazy; I think I’d know if I was being fed on.”

“You positive?” he goaded.

Tune in next week for more!

  1. Excellent tension in the dialogue. i love how he challenges her and we're left wondering if she did get fed on.

  2. What happens next is my question. Good eight.

  3. Ooh, a creepy thought but better for her to know the truth. Excellent excerpt!

  4. Can't wait to read more! Love Skillet too BTY!

  5. Love the tension. Great use of the 8!

  6. Oooh, does she know? My goodness, very intriguing snippet!

  7. Ew. I'd think you'd know, too. But it depends on what the demon feeds on. Her life-force? Soul?


  8. "You positive" what does he mean by that?
