Happy Father's Day! Here's some more from my YA paranormal thriller After Me. (You can catch up on the earlier excerpts here.) Jada has made it to her new foster home in Miami's Coconut Grove, and (surprise!) she doesn't hate it. Today's snippet shows how she starts the search for her killer. BTW, I decided to create a fictional social network since I figured the real one probably wouldn't like being associated with online predators.
I logged off the blog and opened my FaceSpace page to check for new friend requests. With a name like Cherry Licious and a profile picture of legs clad in lacy thigh highs, I’d been getting plenty of requests and private messages from guys of all ages, but none of their names or personal info sounded like the one I was looking for: BOSSMAN. What a joke. I bet that pathetic loser wasn’t the boss of anything but his favorite video game.
I shut down the browser and lay across the bed. I still wasn’t used to all the things that were different about me now, and I only had a day and a half before I started school on Monday. Like the Transdead Trustee guidelines had said, I hadn’t felt any emotions since I came back, but at least I could still appreciate a good joke. Flo probably hated that.
Next Sunday we'll see if Jada can blend in with the other kids at school. I'm thinking she'll probably stand out just a little, what about you? Can't wait? You can buy After Me here. And please do also check out the other Snippet Sunday folks and the Weekend Writing Warriors. Something for everyone among these talented writers!
