Snippet Sunday ~ Weekend Writing Warriors 1/25/15


Welcome to my 22nd Snippet Sunday ~ Weekend Writing Warriors Post! This week’s snippet skips ahead a little from last week’s that you can find here. Sarette woke up and after wondering whether or not they observed Eastern Standard Time in La-La-Land, decided to get ready and then call to Elwin. If you’re interested in reading more about La-La-Land and the in between click here. The snippet starts with Elwin taking something out of his pocket…

“I made something for you. I think you’ll find it convenient. Turn around,” he said as he made a twirling motion with his hand, “and close your eyes.”

I responded without protest and closed my eyes tight. I felt like a little kid waiting for a surprise at her birthday party. Elwin’s energy swirled around me, and a chill ran up my spine when a cold object touched my skin near my heart.

His fingers lightly touched the back of my neck, and I felt him clasp a necklace.  He left his warm hands on my shoulders and spoke into my ear, “You can open your eyes now.”

“Wow, this is so beautiful,” I whispered as I looked at my reflection and drank in every detail.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet. Let me know in the comments below! Check back in next week for the continuing saga of Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms!
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.
