Thank you, everyone, for stopping by my twenty-sixth Weekend Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday and my sixteenth Snippet Sunday post. I’m sorry I haven’t been around for a while. I’ve had a crazy couple of months. I’m hoping that things will calm for a bit. I expect to be around until at least October when things will pick back up a bit with new releases and more events.
Today’s excerpt comes from chapter ten of my suspense/thriller, HIM. I’ll probably continue with HIM for a month or so, then I’ll switch to sharing from one or both of my upcoming releases.
In the following snippet Amy, Shane, and Avery are preparing to leave the island to get far away from her uncle, but there is just one problem…
“Amy. Amy, are you in there? Unlock the back door please. Hurry.”
My brain knew instantly to whom that voice belonged. I began to freak-out all over again at the panicked tone of the voice. As fast as I could, I spun around, ran to the backdoor in the kitchen, and jerked it open. Shane stood there bent over at the waist, hands on his knees, breathing hard. I grabbed him by the shirt and jerked him into the house, asking, “What the hell is going on?”
“It’s Avery. He’s missing,” he said in between gulps of air.
Thank you for stopping by. If you want to read more excerpts from other authors or to join in the fun, stop by both blogs and peruse their sights.
