This is my snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors (www.wewriwa.com) where writers share 8 – 10 lines of their work, for others to see and comment. Please follow and comment about others on the list.
I am again taking a snippet from my book, Songbird. Gaston, Pascale’s mother’s brutal lover and killer has tracked her down to the nightclub in London, where Pascale has been singing. Harry manages to get her out of the back entrance, while Jake delays Gaston and his two henchmen inside. The following is written from the POV of Pascale, who is terrified of the evil Gaston.
When I saw that face again I wanted to scream, but nothing came out of my mouth. I froze; and if Harry had not been there to pull me away I would be there still. It was as if every muscle and joint in my body were locked, making me into a stone statue.
I was vaguely aware of being dragged by the hand out of the back door of the club and into Harry’s car. Louis was on the other side of me, pushing me forward and urging me to climb inside. I got into the back and felt Louis’s strong arm around my body and heard his soothing voice in my ear; although I have no idea what he was saying. All I could see in my head was Gaston’s cruel face, mocking me and beating me, like he used to do. He would never let me be free, I was sure of that now. He would torment me forever.
SONGBIRD is the story of a French singer, whose mesmerising voice and looks attracts Harry like no other woman has before. But she has scars from her past. It is also the story of Harry’s best friend, Jake, who owns the night club where Harry and Pascale first meet.
Songbird has gained some excellent reviews on Amazon, with 22 reviews averaging 4.9 stars out of 5.
“Songbird is a richly woven thriller, filled with twists and interesting characters.”
“This story kept me captivated and on the edge of my seat as the life of Pascale unfolds.”
“Riveting and entirely enjoyable, Song Bird was a book I had trouble putting down.”
