Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors, where I’m continuing on with a new snippet from my upcoming urban fantasy novel, Storm of the Gods. In this scene, Derek and Liam have separated to see who is trying to creep up on them.
He grumbled under his breath, but did what I asked. I turned my back to the pipes and walked to one of the side vents, pretending to flick dust out of it. The whole time, I eased magic into my veins, drawing it out from my soul and letting the power enhance my senses of hearing and smell.
Gentle winds brushed sand around my boots. I could hear the distant clangs of mechanical equipment from the metalworking plant and the low buzz of cars driving over the highway. The dracanae howled and thrashed in the back of the truck, but nothing seemed off––
I kept working at the vents, listening to the shift of grit under boots as someone approached my back.
I’m still chipping away at rewrites for my Young Adult fantasy while getting organized for my big condo move in 17 days (only 17 days!). All of this before I try querying again next month. It’s going to be hectic, but I’ll get it done!
