Hi! Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. I’ve been MIA way too long and my list of excuses is even longer, so I’ll spare you the sob story and move on to the snippet.
This week I’m excited to announce the release of the anthology ShadowSpinners: A Collection of Dark Tales. No erotica, but plenty of chills. My snippet is the first ten lines from my story Reduce Reuse Recycle.
JAKE WONDERED WHY HE WAS IN THE BATHTUB with his clothes on. Icy moonlight wavered in the through the obscuring glass and stroked the ceiling with crystalline wave patterns. The faucet dripped a rhythm he couldn’t quite place. His fingers curled stiff and blue against the white porcelain. He hadn’t planned on dying so young, but then he hadn’t planned on being a drug-addicted sex worker either.
Alternately aware and unaware of his surroundings, his skin tingled and then went numb. His heart fluttered then stalled. Droplets from imaginary steam slid down blue tiled walls and collected on his eyelashes. He tried moving, but that didn’t pan out. He relived the choices that led to this moment, this pathetic death in a stranger’s bathtub.
Yeah, it’s a little dark. If you like fiction with an edge, A Collection of Dark Tales is now available in both print and ebook versions on Amazon. ShadowSpinners is an amazing group of writers and I’m pretty tickled to have been included.
This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight to ten sentences from a published work or perhaps their current work in progress. Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! I heartily invite you to participate as a reader, writer, or both. It’s a great way to discover your next favorite book. Click here or use the address: http://www.wewriwa.com
