Happy Saturday! Life is busy here, as usual. Eleven days until my novel Keeping the Faith makes its entry into the world. Meanwhile, I’m also on the last round of edits for my work-in-progress before sending it to my publisher. I hope to have that done by the end of the month.
For the last couple of snippets before my new book launches, I’m still pulling from Leaps of Faith, my summer anthology which is part of the Faithfully Yours series. Those who have read the series may recall that Cat was in a long-term relationship with a man who died (no, he wasn’t beaten to death). This snippet is from the short story “Alpha and Omega.”
Marion led Cat to David. No, not to David. To his cold, stiff, bloodied body. Or would he be cold yet? How long had it been? Would he still have some warmth left beneath his pale skin? Cat hung back, afraid to touch and see. The leftovers of the attempt to save David’s life littered the room.
