logo WWW Vet 

Today I'm sharing from my (unpublished) young adult paranormal romance Running From Shadows!

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) 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 emotions. And that it's definitely someone she knows. And she must under no circumstance confront it because it will kill her. And don't get emotional about anything! >.< Pax takes Greta home. Now, her mother tells her Reed Clarkwell--Greta's shrink--suggested the marriage contract...

“Wait a sec, this was Creepwell’s idea?” I shivered...Goddess. How messed up was this?

“Greta,” she scolded.

I sighed hard and drew it out, adding an eye roll for emphasis. “Fine. Dr. Clarkwell.”

“Yes, dear, why?”

Tune in next week for more angsty spooky goodness!

  1. So glad Greta's not just going to accept this engagement. But why would the shrink get involved in her personal life? Intriguing snippet!

  2. Great ending to this snippet. Good luck with your release. It's on my list of things to purchase and read.

  3. LOL -- love the doctor's nickname. :)

  4. Well that's a puzzling development, definitely leaves me wanting to find out more! I don't trust this therapist...terrific snippet. (But I'm missing Pax - can we see him again soon, pretty please LOL?)

  5. You write teen emotion so well--body movements, facial expressions. Very visual! :-)

  6. This is so messed up on so many levels...I think I'd run far far away with a mom like that. Creepy shrink picking marriage partners?

  7. Oh, she seems to like her shrink so much. But why the hell would he choose who she has to marry and why her mother would agree with him. I can understand her calling him Creepwell.
