WeWriWa #8 Sentences from Stutter Creek





It's almost here!  I was out of town last weekend so I missed an installment, but we're back on track this weekend.  Winding down to the June 1st publication date.  I think it's time to start giving away some copies so watch Goodreads and this blog if you are interested in winning a copy of Stutter Creek. Of course, I'm always interested in having some reviews ready when it releases, so if you would be interested in reviewing a copy, just let me know by email or in the comment section.  =)

Now, on to this week's EIGHT!  Beth had been dreaming about her family when a long, black shadow fell over the scene.  Here's where we pick up:


She had finally fallen asleep. But even the sleep-aid hadn’t been able to protect her from the dream. Every time she closed her eyes, the blackness came and swallowed her family. She was reminded of her grandmother and how the elderly woman had often suffered from bad dreams and what she’d referred to as “visits.”
Beth had always thought the woman was a little off, until her grandfather had passed away, that is. Then she had experienced such a clear vision of him standing at the end of her bed, waiting to say goodbye, that she had never doubted her Grandmother’s stories again. When she had mentioned it to her Gran, the older woman had simply hugged her and with tears in her eyes, she’d said, “Your momma, she got visits, too.”
      She hadn’t really known how to respond to that; her mom had died in a car wreck shortly after Beth was born.








Okay, folks, that's all for this week.  Now skip on over to the wewriwa.com website and check out some AWESOME authors!  Until next week...cheers!

  1. Sounds like an interesting set up - generations of women who were blessed or cursed by seeing those who had passed on - I am intrigued. Thanks for sharing. I loved your 8.

  13. I'm glad she has someone who can reassure her about the "visits," so she doesn't feel like there's something wrong with her.

  15. So the visions run in her family - it will be interesting to see if the fact her mother is dead will play a role in what happens...
