This is my first time posting on the Weekend Writing Warriors blog. It’s a place for people to meet other writers, read other writers’ work, and share some of their own work, published or unpublished. I’m excited to share an 8-sentence snippet from my book Night’s Treasure. I’m currently trying to find an agent who loves it as much as I do.
Wanna join in the fun? Meet new authors? Read others’ work? Go to Weekend Writing Warriors.
– Night’s Treasure –
Screams of pain tortured her and drove her burning legs forward. She was running through the forest, her feet making soft thumping noises on the hard packed soil as she fought to go faster. They were behind her, back in the house. That house of evil. How she wished she could leave it all behind her but her legs were wearying and she had nowhere to go, no one to welcome her, no family but the one from which she ran.
The night lent no light. The trees that surrounded her blocked the rays of the moon that would have lit her path. She saw singular beams as they broke through the leafy cover and dotted the forest floor.
– End –
Those are the first 8 sentences of my book. Night’s Treasure is a New Adult MS and is centered around Greek mythology. It’s about a demigod, Sophy, who must find a way to become immortal (without the help of her mother – the goddess Nyx) so she can join her family and her betrothed in Tartarus.
