Hi! Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday round. Every week writers post 8-to-10 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book. Then we "hop" around and leave comments on each other's snippets. Whether our work is already published or in progress, the helpful comments help us become stronger writers on our next WIP. We welcome EVERYONE's comments.
A long, long time ago I shared a few snippets from my Paranormal Romantic Suspense, Karma Visited (only 5) - and we didn't get a full taste of this story. Since I am working on a sequel and revisiting the story for myself, I'm sharing more with you and soaking up your comments.
Do you believe in karma? Annie Furman has a gift that allows her, while she sleeps, to visit people in their time of need - but who will be there for her when she needs help? Undersheriff Dave Turner is investigating a series of home invasions and homicides. He has no idea that solving this case will lead him to the woman of his dreams.
Scott leaves for work and Annie has the house to herself for a while.
Creative editing alert! Here are nine lines...
Annie finished her household chores and decided to take a break.
She carried a cup of hot cocoa into the den and turned the television on, it wasn’t long before a newscast broke into the program and Annie found herself staring at the face of the only man who had ever been able to see her during her dreams.
The Mayor of Catawai was extolling the police work the four officers did to rescue the young woman who was kidnapped by a homicidal kidnapping duo.
“Undersheriff Dave Turner”, she repeated his name out loud after the mayor said it, she liked the way it sounded.
Catawai? Annie hurried to the computer in Scott’s office.
The map came up on the screen and Annie frowned, “it’s not that far away,” the thought scared her. She had to make sure that the officer, Undersheriff Dave Turner, never found out where she was living or what her name was. If Scott found out, he’d be angry.
