Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work. It could be a work in progress or a completed piece. It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.
I’m continuing from one of my current projects - A Legacy of Lies. This is book 2 in a series I’m working on. Jacob, the hero, is trying to find his missing sister, Julia, and her best friend, Elissa, the heroine, is determined to help him.
So, I’m thinking this will be my last post for this year. I’m considering taking a break through December while I catch up on some stuff. So don’t think I ditched you. I will be back! Promise
So, check out the previous eight. Last week, Jacob and Elissa were on route to (hopefully) find his sister who’s missing. Jacob has been having Elissa keep an eye out for a out-of-the-way motel where he’s got intel that his sister is being held.
When she finally noticed evidence of signage in the distance Elissa perked up, straining to read it long before the words actually came within her visual limits. She spotted a picture on the sign of what appeared to be a rose and gasped. “There, that’s got to be it.” She pointed, her finger trembling, her heart racing, her body tense with anxiety.
As they got closer, her excitement waned, bled away upon seeing the condition of the dilapidated bill board. The weather and years passed had beat the wood to nothing more than a piece of scrap, that somehow managed to remain standing on a pair of legs that begged for crutches, the paint faded to a point of almost non-existence. She could only image the condition they’d find the actual motel in.
When Jacob pulled off the highway and into a grass-infested parking lot, tears filled her eyes as she stared at the run down, doors hanging off their hinges, vacancy sign missing half its letters, abandoned motel.
So, just in case you don’t see me around for the next few weeks, I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. Don’t be a stranger to my site though. I’ll be doing a big cover reveal for my next book that’s coming out in on January 17th.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! See you in 2014!
