Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warriors 11/9/14


Welcome to my eleventh Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warriors post! This week’s snippet takes place immediately after last week’s that you can find here. Sarette just realized Elwin was skinny dipping and . . .




I squeezed my eyes shut and spun around, “Sorry.”

Elwin was laughing as he walked out of the water and moved to my left.  After a few moments, he cleared his throat and said, “You can open your eyes now.”

My face heated even more when I saw the rest of his six-pack being hidden under some over-washed Phish t-shirt. I cleared my throat, “Phish? They’re okay. Not fully my vibe.”

“I like Phish all right, but I really I wear these because I think these are . . .” He pulled out his shirt and looked down, “. . . hysterically ironic.” He looked up and smiled, “Want to see why?”

(Do you?)

I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet! Let me know in the comments below!
Check back in next week to find out what’s hysterically ironic about an over-washed Phish t-shirt.

But if you can’t wait until next week…

Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms


Seventeen-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!
