#8Sunday #SnippetSunday: Mar 02, 2014




weekend_writing_warriorsveteransbadge_4Each 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?”

“I know.”

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.”  

“It’s hers.”

“How can you be certain?” The faded yellow scrap looked no bigger than a sticky-note.

“She drew a tiny bear in the corner.”


You can read all of my past snippets here:  ALL my snippets.

Please jump back to the main site for  Weekend Writing Warriors and visit  Snippet Sunday on Facebook to see the many other authors bringing you a glance into their worlds for this week.

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

    I love this story so much! And I love the little bear, too—what a great way to leave something that would only be a clue to the right people!

    Love the little bear. Nice touch.

  9. Sandra Nachlinger

    I love that her signature is a little bear, and I’m curious why she chose that. Must be some history there! This sounds like a really good story. I’m looking forward to getting to know these characters.

    Oh so glad to see this story back : ) I love the little bear image, something to let her brother know she was there…hope he’s got more info on the note to help him.

    I’m glad to see this one back! That bear in the corner is kinda heart-breaking.

  12. Teresa Cypher

    Awe, the little tiny “inside” clue that he recognizes. This adds an extra layer of closeness between brother and sister. Nice!

  13. Patricia Kiyono

    I’m wondering what’s on the note, and whether or not it provides a clue to finding Julia. Interesting!

    Elissa has to calm down, the guy’s not a fool and he knows his sister. She won’t get him either if she keeps pushing him this way.
