Here’s the first snippet of my sci fi-ish story with the horrible working title of The Unforgiven Two. My MC, 16 y/o high school junior Psyche Foss, is eating lunch with her best friend Heather. Something pretty shocking just happened to Psyche, so it’s a good thing she has chocolate.
By the time Heather caught up, Psyche had emptied half the contents of her backpack onto the seat in front of her.
“Is that Lindy’s chocolate cake?”
Psyche nodded and stuffed a large bite into her mouth.
“To make the first day of school just a little bit sweeter,” Heather said in her worst Indian accent. “How much cake do you have in there?”
“Nevermind,” Psyche said around a mouthful of triple-layer chocolate cake with homemade fudge buttercream frosting. She swallowed loudly and fixed Heather with an appraising look.
“I think the fact that I can lovingly mock both your dads with one sentence gets me cake.”
Thanks for reading!
I’ve recently submitted this novel to Harmony Ink. So far, every manuscript I’ve snippetted while it was on sub has been published—ergo, it’s good luck. This is my first time posting a YA snippet, so I hope you like it and will come back next week for more! I’m also working on a short story for Harmony Ink’s “First Times” anthology, so I may post from that too. Hopefully I’ll be able to share more about these stories soon (and it’ll be good news).
Don’t forget to hop around and sample the snippetry!
