Weekend Writing Warriors ~ #8Sunday


Here are the next 8 sentences in my upcoming romantic thriller, Stutter Creek.  It is slated for release on June 1, 2013 from 5 Prince Publishing.

Following her father’s death and the collapse of her marriage, Beth retreats to the family cabin at Stutter Creek where she stumbles across the path of a serial 
killer.


In last week's entry, a girl named Mandy saw a small boy beside the road.  When she stopped her car and rolled down the window to check on him, a man yanked open the car door, leapt across the seat, and slapped a strip of duct tape across her mouth.  Here's what happened next:




Mandy wasn’t a quitter.  She did her best to get her feet out from under the steering column to try and kick him off. But he was pressing down on her with his entire weight. 
She was trapped. 
Calmly, the psycho took one hand off her throat, doubled up his fist, and hit her so hard the back of her skull struck the driver’s side window with an audible whap!
Then he went back to her throat. Mandy’s grip on reality began to loosen.  Tiny strobes flashed inside her skull.
He squeezed even harder, the tips of his fingers disappearing into her flesh.





Afterthought

I hope you enjoyed today's terribly dark snippet.  I will continue to post the next 8 until the book is released on June 1st.  Be sure to check out the other authors at the main Website: wewriwa.com

  11. I don't like him (yes, I'm up for understatement of the week). Poor Mandy. I suppose there's still time for a dramatic rescue but things are not looking up for her.
