Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
Here, as promised is a snippet from my forthcoming Book, Super Starrella, a Young Adult Superhero Romance. (I can’t keep my genres straight!) Seventeen year old Estelle’s quiet summer at her uncle’s farm becomes weird shortly after her second meeting with the hunky biker. Spotty is the horse she is riding.
One cool morning, Spotty was cantering along a straight stretch of lane and halted abruptly at the intersection with a broader gravel road.
The black motorbike leaned on a tree trunk at the side of the road. Clad in a sleeveless black shirt, Toby crouched on one knee and peered at the tires. Wary of the stranger, the mare snorted and pawed in the dirt. Wiping an oil stain from his cheek, Toby stood up and gazed at the horse and rider. His surly expression lightened, and he drawled, “Hey babe, ain’t seen you for days. You avoidin’ the city gangster?”
Smiling at his acute question, Estelle rolled her eyes and fluttered her lashes, “Hi Toby, I like it quiet.” He looked good, long legs, lean waist and broad chest with the cat tattoo stretched over his biceps.
A quiet summer at her uncle’s farm turns into a weird nightmare when Estelle Wright rides into an explosion and acquires a superpower and a winged horse with a snarky attitude.
Back in her home city of Atalanta, a serial killer is targeting the students at Goldman University. Before long, the fledgling superhero must juggle college classes with sneaking out of the house after dark to battle vicious monsters. Estelle’s life is in danger, but who can she trust with her secret: handsome Captain Copper from military intelligence, or hunky Toby, the tough gangster with a motorbike?
Super Starrella will be published by March 1st.
