Ciao, amici. The random word generator gave me a difficult choice this week. I settled on the word SHAME.
Without further ado, here’s a snippet from the novel.
Jordan’s leg was already saturated and his coloring was gray. He wasn’t going to make it out of the cemetery, let alone to the jet. But (name redacted) wasn’t about to tell them that.
Shame to lose the knife, though.
Norton hooked his hands under his buddy’s armpits then started dragging him away on his ass.
I know—I’ve been choosing such small excerpts, they’re more like teasers. It’s just really difficult to select a longer passage and not give away anything important. And, if you decide to read book two, I don’t want to spoil any surprises.
Book two is already done, so technically it’s not a work-in progress so much as a work-you-haven’t-seen-yet. But of the ten words I was given, it was easier to find a passage from book two than from book three.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one. And to know what you’re currently working on. Let’s talk about it.
