Six Sentence Sunday, October 28, 2012, #sixsunday

Here’s another excerpt from Cookies for Santa, scheduled to be released by Melange Books on November 5th.  In this scene, Spinelli is dressed as Santa Claus and is attempting to free Shannon from her kidnappers but things don’t go as planned.

****

When the bullet struck him, Spinelli felt an odd sensation pass by his abdomen. The impact caused him to shift slightly to the left. He looked down at the right side of his body and noticed a black rimmed hole in the red velvet coat he wore. Confusion filled him. He couldn’t feel pain yet he knew he’d been hit.

Shannon let out a cry and Spinelli’s eyes instantly shifted upwards.

Here’s some more of Cookies for Santa which is still on track to be released in early November by Melange Books.  In this scene, Shannon is still in the hands of her kidnappers and she’s thinking about the consequences of her untimely death.

And Spinelli, who would take care of him? He needed taking care of, he probably didn’t know it, but he did. Would she ever get to see him and feel the warmth of his arms around her again?

            Shannon gave herself a mental head slap. I had the gun in my hands. What the hell happened?

Six Sentence Sunday, October 14, 2012, #sixsunday

Just a few of more weeks of Cookies for Santa before it comes out in early November.  In this scene, Spinelli is looking for Shannon who has been kidnapped by Loukas the Greek.

****

The thick cool damp air stung Spinelli’s lungs as he descended down the staircase. It smelled musty, like rotting wood. When he reached the bottom step he rested the palm of his hand on the cold perspiring cement wall to balance himself as he leaned around the corner to eye what lie ahead. A dim light glowed at the end of the tunnel. The ceiling, riddled with pipes running along the weak looking support beams glistened with moisture.

Spinelli and Walker headed in the direction of the light, their guns drawn, their eyes peeled and their ears tuned in.

Six Sentence Sunday, October 7, 2012, #sixsunday

After a few weeks off it’s time to get back into the swing of things with Spinelli and Shannon.  In this scene, from my soon to be published novella, Cookies for Santa, Shannon is dealing with her kidnapper.

****

He wrapped his large strong hand around her tiny bicep and tugged her to a halt. His other hand held a handgun pointed in her direction, only inches from her face. Her heart beat out of control as she eyed the gun and the glass nail file still stuck in his arm. Blood dripped from the file. She wished for Spinelli. He would know what to do, and he would take care of her.
