I’ve decided to share snippets of my current WIP on Sundays instead of Saturdays, alongside my ROW80 check ins. I won’t be checking in on Wednesdays, I don’t think; just Sundays for now. We’ll see if I get to the point where I remember to do both
So my first snippet is an excerpt from my novel, Wolfspirit, which is book 2 in the Otherside trilogy. This is the first few paragraphs of chapter 1-draft 1.
You should never hit a pissed off redhead: Sometimes they hit back.
My fist connected with Tate’s nose with a resounding and almost-too-pleasing thwack. Bone cracked and his expression was nearly comical as his hands flew up to staunch the flow of blood that had begun to gush down his face.
Not that this was a laughing matter.
“You bitch.” If looks could kill, I’d be vaporized.
I crossed both arms over my chest, jutting my chin out and glaring at him. I refused to rub the bruise blossoming on my cheekbone. I wouldn’t give him the pleasure of seeing me in pain, even though it smarted. “Didn’t your mother ever teach you not to hit girls? Oh, wait, that’s right. You probably hit her, too!” The words were acid on my tongue. Tate had always had a rough family life, but I never thought…
His expression turned sharp, but I didn’t give him the chance to say anything. Twisting his class ring off my finger—the promise ring he’d given me almost two years ago, when we decided we were going to get married right out of high school and have a couple kids—I slapped it into his blood-sticky palm.
