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!
Sorry, I skipped last week, partly due to the hurricane, but mostly due to poor internet. October means Halloween and skeletons sprouting from lawns in our neighborhood of Atlanta. Thankfully, the weather is cooler.
I’m running snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series.
Background: After Estelle joined their table, Toby, the leader of the Jags gang and the Secret Supers, explained that Gecko’s baby sister is missing. The only clue is the school bus driver’s description of a woman who met the girl. This weekend, we learn a little more about the supers.

Toby spoke the final line: He looked at the Jags; “Ideas, anyone else?”
Please excuse my misuse of semicolons to fit.
Ice shifted position to face Toby. Brushing a loose strand of platinum blonde hair behind her ear, she said, “I’m in touch with a group that shelters abused women and children. I’ll ask if they’ve seen this girl.”
“She’s not abused,” Gecko objected.
“Okay, we believe you,” Toby said; “We’ve got to start somewhere.”
Gecko said, “Fricka’s been searching every day since Juliana was lost.”
Toby drawled, “Hawk’s a good hunter, but, she can’t fly into buildings, or talk to people. We can.” He caught Estelle’s gaze, and added, “Discreetly, of course. Not dressed as Supers.”
You can read about Estelle, Toby and the other Supers in my Secret Supers books. http://www.auroraspringer.org/p/secret-supers.html
As always, I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.

I guess they have to be careful when asking questions once they get started.ReplyDelete
They're used to being careful.Delete
You brought me right into the scene. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Enjoyed their discussion and the strategies...great snippet...ReplyDelete
Love that last paragraph!ReplyDelete
Yes. It explains their dilemma.Delete
This series looks great. I love the branding of the covers, too!ReplyDelete
Thank you. The stories were fun to write, especially the snarky flying horse.Delete
Discreetly, of course! Hmmm. Wonder how that's going to work out.ReplyDelete
Okay. Some of the gang have connections in the underworld.Delete
Sounds like there's some solid leads, hope they find something out!ReplyDelete
They do, eventually.Delete
Oh, love this snippet, especially the last line!ReplyDelete
Thanks. Toby often worries that Estelle will be identified as Super Starrella.Delete
Going undercover as normal humans. What a concept!ReplyDelete
Sort of a reverse of Halloween costumes.Delete
The last line got me. The whole snippet hooked me. More, please.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Of course I'm in the middle of writing a different story.Delete
Oh interesting snippet ... and I like the concept of the story.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the encouragement.Delete
I hope they can pull of discreetly. :) Love the book covers.ReplyDelete

You’d think not dressing as a super would be obvious in this case, but there are probably times it gets the job done faster!ReplyDelete
You're correct. And they wear masks.Delete
