#Science #Fiction #Fantasy Saturday #72

Hello, and welcome to my excerpt for this week's #sffsat. I'm continuing with the opening from my upcoming August release - Restless In Peaceville - a YA paranormal novella (think Warm Bodies meets Supernatural in Louisiana). You can read the previous excerpt HERE. My MC Luke is still trying to come to terms with awakening some place he didn't expect...

Around us—well, it's a big gray hall. A really, really huge space, like an aircraft hangar kind of place, only no planes and no doors. In fact, no walls or roof either. The edges just blur into the darkness, as though none of it exists except the floor we're standing on, and I'm not even sure about that. Looking up makes me giddy. You know when you're dizzy from spinning around, and you lay down, but you feel as if you just keep on falling? That. So I don't try it again. I keep my eyes away from the endless line of other people waiting. Instead, I stare at the back of the person in front of me and try not to think about where I am and what may be going on. Because now I have a nasty suspicion about it and what might have happened. My mind scurries away from the thought. This ain't good. 

Restless In Peaceville will be available in all digital formats from Lycaon Press from the 20th August. In the meantime you can check it out on Goodreads HERE or my website HERE, or sign up to my newsletter to get the release announcement.

  1. Brrrr! The more Luke describes where he is, the more disturbing it becomes. Good snippet - I look forward to the launch! (Oh, and belatedly - happy birthday!)

  2. Sounds like he is trapped in some kind of virtual prison.

    1. Hmm, that could be one way of looking at it...


I always love to hear your thoughts.
