Snippet Sunday ~ Weekend Writing Warriors 11/30/14


Welcome to my 14th Snippet Sunday ~ Weekend Writing Warriors post! This week’s snippet takes place immediately after last week’s snippet that you can find here. Sarette has walked out on top of the water to Elwin and he says he’s never seen anything like that…


“Anything like what? I hope I didn’t do anything wrong.”
“I didn’t have to come and get you. You didn’t even have to ask and everyone has to ask. Wow.”
He was staring at me, distracting me with that beautiful smile of his, but I had to know, “You still haven’t told me what you are.”
He leaned down a little, clenched his fist, and placed it over his heart as he said, “My name is Elwin Colin of the Water Fey. I am a knight of the High Spirit Court and you…”
He paused and looked sad then bent down so his mouth was right next to my ear and said, “And, you are my princess, a fairy princess.”
“I’m a fairy princess,” I whispered then felt his arms tighten around me as I fainted.


Believe it or not, learning she’s a fairy princess is just the tip of the iceberg… So did you guess right? Can you guess what she will learn next?

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

Check back in next week for more!

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!
