Happy Mother's Day! It's a gorgeous day here in the Heart of Dixie, I have three kids and three bonus kids (I like that better than step-kids!) so I feel truly blessed today even more than usual!
Thus far in After Me, my YA paranormal thriller, Jada has made it into the inner sanctum of the Afterlife Admissions Office and has been admonished by Tablet Guy not to touch anything while she awaits the arrival of her advisor, a no-nonsense woman named Florence. (You can catch up on previous snippets here.) This is what happens when Flo tells Jada that they need to take a look at her account.
“My account?” I almost laughed. “You mean I was supposed to be saving money to bribe my way in here or something?”
“No, it’s your Afterlife Account, and it’s what determines whether or not you’re admitted and where you’ll be assigned.”
“Oh, jeez.” I leaned back in my chair and looked at the ceiling. More angels. With harps. “If you’re gonna put me someplace like this, I’d rather just burn for eternity.”
“No, this department is reserved for people who had no sense of humor when they were alive,” she said. “For the most part, we’re staffed by IRS agents and high school English teachers.”
My apologies to all the English teachers out there. ;-) Next Sunday Jada finds out exactly where she's going and why. Can't wait? You can buy After Me here. And please also check out the other Snippet Sunday folks and the Weekend Writing Warriors. Something for everyone among these talented writers!
