Weekend Snippets #4

Welcome back to Weekend Snippets.

As part of the Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday groups, I’m posting very short excerpts from my writings. I hope you enjoy the snippets and will considering buying my book.

Last week I posted a longer 6 paragraph piece which told about Mikela finding a dead body on the trail. You can find that bit on the My Books page. This weekend’s snippet continues right after the discovery:


Wyoming Cover - 4x6 - #2A rustling in the woods jerked her upright and around. At the sight of a dark form advancing through the trees, Mikela bolted. The crashing of underbrush and a man’s curse goosed her even faster.

Wishing for the umpteenth time she had longer legs, she sprinted up the trail, unsure where to go. Even if she made it back to her SUV, the signs advertising Mikela’s Kitchen, her catering business, would tell her pursuer who she was. Hers had been the only vehicle in the lot an hour ago. Had others arrived to provide some cover?

You can find Wyoming Escape on most e-reader sites: Kindle, Nook, Apple, Kobo and Smashwords

Be sure to check out more fabulous snippets on theΒ  Weekend Writing Warriors website and also Snippet Sunday, on Facebook.

Happy reading!

  1. Ha! Nice way to leave us hanging! Good job πŸ™‚

  2. I didn’t post this week. Meant to leave that comment on the last one. I didn’t want Warriors going to my blog to reciprocate. I never made it around last week, so just visiting this week. πŸ™‚

  3. You got me curious as to whose chasing her and why it might be significant that they’d know who she was based on her catering advertisement.

    • Well, she heard gunshots, saw a man with a gun, found a dead body and now is being chased. She doesn’t know what might happen next. πŸ™‚

  4. She’s not out of the woods,yet! (Sorry, couldn’t resist). I love the complications in this and that she’s not just blindly running—she’s smart.

  5. Now she’s rethinking that magnetic sign. If in doubt, here I am, come shoot me. Great snippet.

  6. Yes, that sign on her SUV would be a dead giveaway. For such a quick peek into the book, this definitely created suspense.

  7. Good tension, but also good that she’s thinking instead of just reacting.

  8. If the sign’s magnetic, could she rip it off–fast?

  9. If it hasn’t been seen already.

  10. Very intense – this story certainly keeps the reader involved and worried about your heroine. Another excellent excerpt!

  11. nice excerpt. Keeps you involved.

  12. Glad she’s thinking as she’s running for her life. Can’t wait to find out what happens next! Hey, I’m doing the Cowboys and Lawmen hop, too. I’m over at my KMN Books Blogspot. πŸ™‚ It’s been fun. I love my Scotsmen, but I go weak in the knees for a man in cowboy hat, too. lol

  13. Lots of us cowboy lovers around!

  14. Intense, and I like her logical thinking. Looking forward to reading more!

  15. Suspenseful! Great snippet.

  16. No way is anonymity an option now. She doesn’t seem to have any choice but to stand and fight. Or get help from the Marine(s). πŸ˜‰

    Terrific snippet!

  17. Nice excerpt. Very suspenseful.

    Run girl, run! OK, so maybe she has a crow bar in the van? Something? Hopefully? Heck, at this point she doesn’t even know if he is a good guy or bad guy right? Depending on who is lying dead on the ground. Good draw in on the snippet.

  19. Gem

    Run!! Heart pounding intensity. Nice job.
