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’ve missed the last couple of weeks due to life happening around me. But I’m not going to focus on that today. Today, I’m taking you back to A Legacy of Lies, one of my many works in progress. The one you’re all familiar with.
The last time I featured this was back in January. Jacob (the hero), is trying to find his missing sister Julia, and her best friend Elissa (the heroine), is determined to help him. Only, Jacob has the hots for Elissa and he’s trying, very desperately, not to. Back in January they had arrived at an abandoned motel hoping to find Julia, but she was gone by the time they got there. Jacob did, however, find a clue. The following snippet carries on from there.
“How do you know it’s from Julia?”
It killed her to see him overwhelmed by disappointment again, but they needed to focus on solid information.“ Jacob, that note’s probably been there for years, dropped or tossed on the floor and then kicked under that dirty bug-infested bed.”
“How can you be certain?” The faded yellow scrap looked no bigger than a sticky-note.
“She drew a tiny bear in the corner.”

I’m looking forward to catching up with everybody. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
