It's the first day of the 2013 A to Z Challenge! Yay!
I'm so excited. I can't wait to read your blogs and see what you've come up with this year.
Thank you so much to the A to Z Team. You guys are amazing.
If you haven't joined the challenge yet, there's still time. Click here!
This year I'll be sharing snippets from a story we'll call Fearless 2.
It's not a sequel, but it takes place in the same world as the story I wrote last year for the challenge.
A IS FOR APPLES
The gangster mummy burst like a pinata. There were no candies were razor sharp teeth, but those were almost preferable to the black sludge. It was thick like tar and smelled like rotten apples.
Danielle Sawyer stood with her legs apart in a ready stance. The blue glow radiating from her wickedly curved blades faded before the weapons retracted into her hands. Body relaxing, she prodded the pile of goo with the toe of her boot. “Where's the withered zombie body?”
You were hoping for a zombie? Please don't tell me you were hoping for a zombie. Fenn sighed.
“Well, I've never fought a zombie before. You'd think they'd be more common these days.” Danielle wiped her hands on her jeans. “Though I guess I can count the mummy as a zombie. That's all they are, right? Zombies done up in fancy packaging.”
Yes, whatever you say. Fancy packaging, indeed. Fenn sniffed. Where's the child, by the way? You didn't forget her in your longing for a zombie, did you?
