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 Every week writers post 8-to-10 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book.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 . 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.
Last week, after an angry town meeting, Annie overheard her husband and his friend promising to "stop" anyone who got in their way.
Annie is confronted by an angry Sherry Pulaski in a local store.
This will probably be the last snippet from Karma Visited (maybe?). I will be sharing snippets from another story in a week (or two).
Creative editing (a.k.a. condensed to fit) alert! Here are Ten lines...
“You tell your husband and his buddies I am not backing down and you tell them to keep the hell away from my son’s school.”
“Is everything okay with your son?” Sherry’s son had Autism Spectrum Disorder, she and her husband fought to mainstream the boy in school and make sure he received every resource he was entitled to.
“Trying to take services away from an innocent child,” Sherry let out a loud sigh, “that’s low.”
“I’m sorry, I don’t know what’s going on?”
Sherry paused her tirade to look at Annie, “Yeah, I’m sure you don’t.”
“I don’t,” she wasn’t sure if she was believed or being mocked.
“Well you tell him that I’m not backing down, they try to hurt my son and they’ll get it back where it hurts.”
“I am so sorry, he’s a sweet little boy,” she was still confused, “who hurt him?”
“If your husband screws with me or my family, he’s got a whole world of hurt coming, I will stop them.”
