Snippet Sunday ~ Weekend Writing Warriors 10/26/14



Welcome to my ninth Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warrior post! This week’s snippet takes place immediately following last week’s snippet that you can find here. Sarette was just transported somewhere when the two crystals touched and…



Holy moly!
I was in my dream, but it wasn’t a dream it was real.
I was actually there, standing at the edge of the forest, looking at the lake.
The water was so blue it was sparkling like gemstones in the sun.
My eye caught something in the water about twenty yards out.
Someone was swimming, Elwin.
I could only see his shoulders and head above the water.
Still holding the crystals together in my hands, I strolled down to the edge of the lake.
“Hey,” I shouted as casually as possible.


I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet! Did you guess where she was correctly?

Check back in next week when you get to see a whole lot more of Elwin. 😉

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!
