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.
This month, I’m celebrating my third anniversary as an indie author, and releasing a boxset of the three books in the Secret Supers series.
My snippet illustrates the heroine, Estelle aka Super Starrella, and her sidekick, the winged mare, Rockette. They are flying on patrol above the streets of Atalanta (Atlanta).
As they watched a solitary drunkard wobble along the street, Starrella caught a movement at the edge of her vision. In a blur of wings, a huge insect plunged toward the unwary man.
Rockette dived at the flying mantis. Opening her fists, Starrella flung beams of fire at the predator. She scored on its bulky abdomen. It twisted upward, zooming at the winged mare hovering overhead.
“Blistering horse flies!” Rockette snorted, kicking her rear hooves at the menacing insect.
Clinging onto the mane as the mare dodged through the sky, Starrella called, “Give me a clear shot at its head.”
