The Friday 56

Today is a quickie…I’m struggling to catch up and still get a novella done, so no contest…sorry!

This is from the novella, which is the closest thing at hand.

And when he hadn’t answered—
“Damn it, Colby, what’s wrong with you??”
Blinking, he forced his eyes wider open, made himself swallow although most of the spit had dried in his mouth.

This is set in the same world as THE MISSING and THE DEPARTED, and I’ll have a cover for THE DEPARTED soon. This novella is going to be in an antho with Sylvia Day and Shayla Black.

(BTW, I feel the need to point out…yes, authors are welcome to participate, but keep in mind-there is a line between participation and spamming my blog. The line isn’t really all that fine, either. You don’t try to use my blog as your promo platform and we’re good. And trust me, you don’t want to spam my blog. I’ve been known to strange and unusual things to author spam left on my blog…you wouldn’t want your spam-mish post that reads something like… CHECK OUT MY BOOKS to be changed to CHECK OUT MY BOOGERS/MY BOOBS/MY MORNING BREATH, would you? This PSA was left after a few came a little too close lately)

  3. “You look alarmed, Ned. Does going against society’s grain frighten you? For that is what science often does. It quashes preconceived notions and replaces them with radical new innovations. The public is not always quick to embrace such change.”

  4. She happily chatted to someone on her cell phoneand didn’t seem to notice me. A horn blew from somewhere in the garage, and the girl squealed, then giggled to her phone companion. I grew closer.
