I’m running snippets from an unpublished short story in my superhero series. Once the latest draft is settled, I’ll move on to snippets from my next (hopefully) SciFi novel.
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.

The final line was: Toby said, “Know it’s not much, but she’s the only hint we have.”
Please excuse my misuse of semicolons to fit.
“What’s the plan, Big Jag,” Gecko asked.
Toby quirked a black eyebrow; “Do you have a photo of the girl?”
Gecko scrolled through the images on his phone. “Here’s Juliana,” he showed them a headshot of a girl with big dark eyes and a shy, gap-toothed smile.
Capturing the image with the special Farleon app on his phone, Toby said, “I’ll send you guys a copy. Don’t give ‘em away; we’ll keep this search private.” He drummed his knuckles on the tabletop; “Night patrols, and we stop to question street kids.” Shrugging, he added, “Not my greatest plan, but we have to find the kid before she gets in trouble. Reckon the cops can do the major leg work.” He looked at the Jags; “Ideas, anyone else?”

Grand Master’s Pawn is 99c until October 14th
Reviewed by TheRomanceReviews.com - “I enjoyed this story. The world building made me use my imagination and it was truly beautiful. I traveled with Violet Hunter as she completed each mission for her Grand Master, the Griffin, while trying to discover his motives for the missions. Each mission, more dangerous than the last, helped me understand the Griffin more and the dangers of greed and the ambitions of others.”
As always, I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.
