The Phantom Series #WeWriWa

Hallo paple--
Trying out a new accent, what do you think? Dorky?  Oh well, read on, it gets better.
Starting this week for Weekend Writing Warriors I am going to do a snippet from each of the three books in The Phantom Series because Book One, Stevie-girl and the Phantom Pilot, will be FREE July 9th - 13th so grab your copy.

It's a novella, a quick read with 25 great reviews!

Okay, here's a sample:

Stevie-girl and the Phantom Pilot (the set up)

Home alone, twelve-year-old Jase heard a small plane flying low over his rural home.  When the plane's engine went suddenly silent, he rushed out to see what had happened.

In the field behind his house, he saw the small plane on its top, wheels pointed toward the night sky.  He thinks if the wind hadn't been blowing so hard, the pilot might have pulled off the emergency landing.  But now, it's up to Jase and his dog, Lady the German Shepherd, to go down and check for survivors.

This passage is told in Jase's first person POV.

I shined the flashlight all around.
“Hello!” I called. The wind hooted at me through the trees.
The cockpit was crumpled. I would have to crawl underneath the wing for a closer view. “Anyone in there?” I did not want to stick my head inside that darkness.

“Here.” The voice came from behind me.
I spun around, dropping the flashlight. It rolled over and over in the dirt shooting light this way and that until I snagged it and aimed it at the voice. 

Sorry, I added a couple extra sentences to finish the scene -- well, it actually went on for quite a bit longer, but I don't want to give away too much. You can read the whole thing next week for FREE!

Afterthought:  Next week I will feature a snippet from Book Two, Stevie-girl and the Phantom Student.  It has received great reviews, too. 

Now, hop on over to the #WeWriWa website and check out some more snippets.  There's something for everyone!
