8 Sentence Sunday on Dieselpunks #1
Here it is. My first snippet for the 8 Sentence Sunday on Dieselpunks. I’m so exited!
The first time I heard about this idea I thought, hey, how can anyone make sense out of just eight sentences?
Well, if the eight sentences are well chosen, they can make a lot of sense. I was very surprise to discover this. A very pleasant surprise. I hope my choice will make sense to you and you’ll enjoy it.
I’ll be posting snippets from the WIP Ghostly Smell Around. I’m currently working on a polishing up revision. Not quite there, yet, but getting very close to a stage where the novel will actually be readable.
There are two main threads running all though the novel, one centering on Blood and Michael and one centering on Sinéad.
This snippet is from chapter 1, Blood and Michael’s section.
Hope you’ll enjoy it.
Michael was finally near enough to grab Blood’s arm and pull, forcing him to stop and force whirl to him. “Now what was that?”
They were both panting for the run, Michael’s ears buzzed too. Blood turned to one of the alleys, listening, when instead Michael smelled people looking at them from curtained windows.
The faster they left, the better. He pulled at Blood, who didn’t try to disengage but looked at him and said, “It’s very near, now.”
Michael tightened then loosened his grip, narrowed his eyes. “What is very near?”
