The next step

06 Feb

So I’ve been writing….not as much as I’d like but something is better than nothing and I’d like to share the first few paragraphs of my next book.


Five meters had never seemed so far away. The bright lights of the bar called to Madison but every step she took seemed like ten with Skye yammering in her ear.

“This is a bad idea.”

Forest green eyes rolled backwards in annoyance but Madison bit her lip to keep herself from saying anything she’d regret. There was no point. Skye was one of the most stubborn people Madison had ever known and there was nothing she could say to change her friend’s mind. It didn’t help that there was a tiny voice at the back of her mind that was agreeing with Skye’s unease but there was no way that she was going to let her friend know it.

In the twenty odd years that they’d been friend’s Skye had, on occasion, disagreed with her but this was the first time Madison had been tempted to throw her friend out of a very, very tall window. It had been weeks since Madison had confided in Skye about her problem and she had been whining ever since. Whining and giving poor advice but doing nothing to solve the problem which meant Madison had had to take drastic action. Her chosen course had led them to this moment with Skye trying desperately to make her turn back and Madison deftly avoiding her friend’s attempts to block the path.

“I know what you think,” Madison snapped. “But I don’t have a choice.” Running annoyed fingers through her short, black hair Madison took a decisive step to the right and kept walking, her goal crystal clear.

Skye bounced back, quickly falling into step with her again. “I know you think you don’t have a choice but there has to be something else. If this goes wrong…” Skye’s eyes widened in fear. “If he isn’t there…”


More to come soon!

    Very nice start. Can’t wait to see (read) where the characters take you (or you take them)!

    Sounds interesting so far! Is this part of the love bites series or are you working on something else. Are you planning to write a book for Dylan? Thanks, Amy

      This is going to be an independent series and I’m glad you like it and I hope you enjoy the rest when it’s finished.
