Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warriors 11/2/14



Welcome to my tenth Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warrior post! This week’s snippet takes place immediately following last week’s snippet that you can find here.

Sarette just shouted, “Hey” as causally as possible and startled Elwin, he just turned and has started walking to the shore…


I couldn’t stop looking as the water slowly lowered on his muscular body.
Attentive and focused, I scanned his shoulders and biceps, toned and strong.
His chest was defined and hairless.

Manscape or natural, I wondered as I looked up to meet his smiling eyes.
Tyra Banks would say he was “smizing”.
I wonder if I can still watch America’s Next Top Model when I get to wherever it is I’m going.

“You’re going to have to turn around so I can get out,” he called out.
“Huh,” I responded not quite understanding . . . Holy crap! He’s naked!

I hope you enjoyed this week’s Snippet! Let me know in the comments below.

Check in next week for more!

But if you can’t wait for next week.

Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms

meanmnasmallSeventeen-year-old Sarette has always thought of her life as average, even a bit boring. She does well in school, has a loving mother and a loyal best friend, Mathew. Of course, she has her problems as well—cold Michigan winters, a long-lost father she knows nothing about, and the lack of a boyfriend. She also has the vague sensation that she is being watched by some unseen entity, but figures that means she’s average and crazy.

 Nothing could be further from the truth . . .

 Daearen isn’t much different than the human world. Imagine a world where science is replaced with magic.


 Available at Amazon and Smashwords!

  1. I now have a mental image of sparrowmen spreading tree sap on themselves and ripping it off with handfuls of milkweed fluff . . .

    I’m not sure how to deal with that. 😀

    But I like this scene very much. She’s such a regular teenager that it grounds the magic in realism, while providing a nice contrast.

  2. Pretty fun thoughts from our girl. : ). Emmy, not sure what’s going I. With your link each week, but it doesn’t automatically come to your post. You may want to look into that. The admins always need to fix it for you. It goes to an error page, and then you have to click home to find it.

    • Thank you. I’m trying to figure out what’s going on with the link. Hopefully it will be fixed for next week.

  3. So is he really naked?? Is he?? Huh?? Don’t leave me hanging. (Smirking at my own mental image.) Love it. Can’t wait for next weeks snippet. 🙂
