Sunday Snippet: " ...there was no way for me to take her nightmares away."

It's been a busy week for this writer, especially since I've fallen behind on the final drafts of my novels. I know, I know, a terrible excuse, especially since I need to get them to reviewers (I'm definitely taking lessons away from this), but I'm almost done. Let's just say it's a good thing I'm looking these books over. One such novel was Dark Divinity, which is now on Smashwords along with yours truly. So to celebrate it's near final completion (need to take a look at the new colours on the cover), I have another snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors! These 10 sentences continue from last week, where Constance is watching her sister with worried eyes. But she's not the only one watching with interest...

          I watched her pinch her pale eyebrows together, as if she was in pain. I didn’t know what my sister was dreaming, wasn’t sure if I would ever know. She didn’t like to talk about the things she saw in her sleep, not even to me. It couldn’t be anything good, and there was no way for me to take her nightmares away.
            “Constance?” Warrick’s gentle, deep voice came from behind me.
            I turned sharply, facing the tall, incredibly handsome demon slayer. His thick brown hair was a tired, wavy mess on his head. His goatee was now becoming a beard. Sincere green eyes fixed on my dark brown ones. Just looking at him made my heart rate speed up. 



Just one more month and this book will be out! I'm so excited! Though having said that, this will likely be the last snippet from Dark Divinity for a little while. With NaNoWriMo now underway, I'm going to be putting most of my time into this new novel. I don't necessarily like putting things on hold, but I don't want to start my word count halfway through a project. It will be really cool to see where this new story goes!

If you're a Weekend Writing Warrior taking part in NaNoWriMo, leave a note in the comments! I would love to know who's taking part in it this year. Best of luck to you all!

  1. Oh HI Warrick! I do like seeing him again. Nice description. As if he wasn't already hot enough. :-)

    1. He's definitely ultra sexy in DARK DIVINITY. Is it wrong to have a book-crush on your own characters? Because I totally do on some of them... *guilty smile*

    1. Oh yes... He's driven Constance a little crazy so far. ;)

  4. Like the description of how scruffy he's getting--it makes it clear they're living a bit rough.

    Good luck on NaNo! I'm taking part, too.
