#8Sunday

   

Welcome to Wewriwa everyone. Sorry I missed last week but I tried to force myself to stay focused on my WIP since I was in the final stretch. Good news is that Argan is done and will be going to the betas and editor for clean up. Now I’m going to dig my heels into my next project which is Book 2 in A World Beyond. My 8 today will be from Arak’s story. After checking out my snippet don’t forget to see what other authors are up to here : www.wewriwa.com.

“In position,” Jaron murmured in the communicator at Arak’s ear, sending a fresh wave of excitement through him.

“Arak, your point of entry will put you on the top level where we’ve confirmed the slaves are kept.”

“Affirmative.” Arak eased back from the crevice where he and Kyele who’d also been selected for the rescue hid. The tiled roof provided the perfect access point to the rickety warehouse.

Kyele hefted his laser blaster in hand and nodded to Arak before fading away into the darkness. They were here on Aultare to rescue Lindsey Ferra, an Earth woman, assumed to be held prisoner in the dilapidated building.

“Sixty seconds until rooftop sensors re-engage so move it, Arak,” Jaron prodded.

Thanks for reading. This scene is unedited but hopefully won’t change much other than clean up.

    Wonderfully tense, you can feel the nervous, yet determined, preparation.

    You know I loved the first book and read it in one sitting, so today’s excerpt really whets my appetite for the next book. Excellent!

    Last week was my first time doing weekend warriors, so I didn’t get to see your writing, I’m glad I get to see it now! Like you said, just a little clean-up needed, but otherwise it’s really great. I love the emotions in the snippet, your writing makes me want to continue reading 🙂
