So, what you do think about my book cover? (My totally fake/I was bored so I made a book cover, book cover.) I was ecstatic to see it looked halfway decent once I finished it. YAY me! ::patting self on back for job well done::
Anyway, since today is Teaser Tuesday I thought I would share a little teaser from my current WIP.
I hope you enjoy!
Darkness consumed me. I stepped further into our living room; the wooden floors slick and sticky beneath the soles of my flip-flops. This wasn’t normal. Something was wrong. The rusty stench that lingered in the air alone was enough to convey the feeling that something was definitely off.My hands gripped the wall for support as they blindly searched its textured surface for a nearby light switch—it failed to respond to my touch.What happened here?All was quiet—too quiet. My stomach wrenched, tying itself into tight knots.That’s when her sob broke through the deafening silence.“Mom?” I called. “Is that you?”No answer.My heart raced, thumping so loudly I could feel it pulsating in my temples.I ran towards the sound and slipped, plunging into a stagnant, inky liquid that pooled around me.“Mom!”
PS- I hope you enjoyed! This is a very, very rough draft of this scene. But I was going for the vague, eerie, WTF kind of feeling. I can't tell you why, though. It's a secret! : )
