Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warriors 10/19



Welcome to my eighth Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warrior post! This week’s snippet takes place shortly after last week’s snippet that you can find here. Mathew has left. Sarette just finished her homework and…



There was a shimmer across the room.

The crystals on my nightstand seemed to be glowing.

Quickly walking over I picked up one in each hand.

Neither crystal had remained opaque.

Just like I’d first witnessed them at the store, they were clear dark green with white swirls swirling inside.

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

Check back in next week for eight to ten more sentences.

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!
