Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors, a list of authors showcasing their work for all and sundry, on Sundays. Thank you so much for visiting and if you choose to comment, I really appreciate it. Most of these snippets are unedited, works in progress, and while my snippets aren't consecutive, they are in order within the story. You can read last week's snippet HERE.
Today, I'm offering a snippet from a new work in progress, a paranormal romance which will be a free read available April 2nd 2013, entitled A Hell Hound's Fire. Alex MacLaren has been asked to help Lt. Fitzroy with a special job. The special job entails protecting Sarah Flanagan and her son Liam from a demon. Sarah is in the other room reading a book to Liam. Alex is the first one to speak.
“What do I need to do?”
“From what I can gather from the messages I’ve received, she needs a place that doesn’t smell like her. The demon seems to be tracking through some kind of emotional or psychic scent, and she needs a place without hers.” Fitzroy scanned Alex with his unnerving stare, the one that always seemed to see right through him. “You still have the house on the river, right?”
Alex groaned, “Take her to my place?”
“Water confuses demons.”
Sarah piped up, “Onward up many a frightening creek while losing the paddle and springing a leak.”
