Her mother's frantic - snippet from #Superhero short story for #WeWriWa



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

I’m running snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series. It was originally intended for an anthology that didn’t receive enough submissions. I’m debating whether to expand it into a novella or make an anthology with other short stories. Any suggestions are welcome. 
Sorry for skipping two weeks. Two Sundays ago, I was traveling from London to Atlanta. Last weekend, I was attending a departmental retreat.
The last line was: Estelle slipped into the chair next to Toby.
(Please excuse added semicolons to fit 8-10 sentences.)

He winked at her, “Hi, Star.” His special, lop-sided grin sent her pulse racing.
“What’s up?” she asked.
He nodded toward the younger student, “Problem number one, Gecko’s baby sister is missing.”
“Juliana Rosado’s not really my sister,” Gecko explained, “she’s the seven-year old daughter of a family living in my apartment complex. I’ve kind of adopted Juliana; play ball with her after school. She’s a happy girl, not the type to run away; her mother’s frantic. Cops have been searching for almost a week, and the whole neighborhood’s jittery.” After this uncharacteristically long speech, he shook his head and looked at Toby.
“Yep; know how it is; ain’t easy to lose part of your family,” Toby drawled.

Toby - Snippet from #Superhero short story for #WeWriWA



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

I’ve switched to snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series. It was originally intended for an anthology that didn’t receive enough submissions. I’m debating whether to expand it into a novella or make an anthology with other short stories. Any suggestions are welcome. 


Gecko, a skinny lad with dark curly hair, had his laptop open. His elbows on the table, Toby sat beside him; his sleeveless black shirt exposed the tattoo of a cat leaping up his muscular biceps. He leaned his chin on his hand and peered at the screen as if he were helping with Gecko’s homework instead of organizing his gang. A graduate student in Aerospace Engineering, Toby had a brain to match his brawn, and layers of secrets. The Ice Princess sat with her chair pushed away from the others. Her long, silvery locks draped over the back of the seat, she examined her fingernails with a disinterest that was not feigned. Apart from Toby, Estelle did not know their real names.
Rockette said, “Cheers. I’ll go and bother Growler.” She flew across the lawn to the parking lot, and plopped onto the handlebars of the black motorcycle propped by the wall.
Estelle slipped into the chair next to Toby.

Fricka the Hawk - Snippet from #Superhero story for #WeWriWa



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

I’ve switched to snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series. It was originally intended for an anthology that didn’t receive enough submissions. I’m debating whether to expand it into a novella or make an anthology with other short stories. Any suggestions are welcome. 

The story continues this weekend.

Postponing their dinner date was a nuisance, but she loved any excuse to fly on Rockette and use her superpower. Even the idea heated the palms of her hands. She clenched her fists to hide the tiny flames.
The pigeon griped, “Don’t know. That bossy cat never spills details.” Flapping to a tree beside the path, she added, “Fricka’s been searching for Gecko’s little sister.”
We’ll find out soon enough,” Estelle slowed as she rounded the corner to the quiet patio at the rear of the Student Center. A hawk perched on the flat roof; Fricka keeping watch while her partner was at the meeting.
Toby and two of the gang were sitting at a table under a crape myrtle tree laden with large magenta blossoms and out of earshot of idle listeners.

Learn how Estelle gained superpowers and a flying horse by reading Super Starrella, Book 1 in the Secret Supers Series

Reviewers say:
“A boring holiday on a quiet farm livens up for Estella when she is caught in an explosion and develops super powers and acquires a companion - a flying horse. 2 good-looking suitors, her first year at college, and a mysterious super-villain make for a fun read.” 

I really enjoyed reading this story. It was unique, engaging and easy to read.
