Happy Sunday! It must be time for a scene snippet from whatever I’m working on at the moment, which in this case is Pirate’s Alley!
First a reminder: Tuesday will be the last day that Lovely, Dark, and Deep will be available for $1.99 for Kindle, as that’s the release day for the final episode. So if you download between now and Tuesday, you’ll be able to read the whole book. The price then will go up to its regular cost of $3.99. (Print coming on May 13.)
Okay, so in this scene of Pirate’s Alley, there’s been a bit of a dustup at the Interspecies Council meeting. Remember all the mess that happened at the end of Elysian Fields (no spoilers here!)? Well, there’s a trial and things go awry. DJ and several others end up in the Realm of Vampyre and, well, things go awry again. Funny how that works. Finally, everyone disappears except DJ and one other person….
I landed hard on my back, and had the breath knocked out of me when an elephant landed on my chest.
Drawing in a deep, gasping lungful of air, I flipped my lids open to find a familiar pair of dark-blue eyes an inch or two above mine. An elephant hadn’t landed on top of me, but a pirate had. And he seemed disinclined to move.
Okay, for the weekly winners…. If you see your name, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the pertinent info!
