Don’t scream… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: The man claiming to be her father, who died 23 years ago, just disappeared. He was standing there one moment then poof he wasn't.

Now for the snippet...

***The story is in the very early stages and has not been edited.


She blinked and blinked again. Had she really seen her father's spirit? "No. Not possible."

However before she could fully convince herself, a shimmering light appeared where he'd been standing seconds ago and the floor lamp dimmed and brightened. Then the Lars Lookalike was zapped right into existence once more as if he never did his disappearing act, looking vibrant and alive and definitely solid.

"Don't scream," he warned with his hands up in a calming gesture.

"I'm losing my mind," she said to herself but the Lars lookalike seemed to think she was speaking to him.

"You're not. I've been trying to make contact with someone, what seems like forever."


Well, he's made contact now. lol


Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and is trapped in limbo until his daughter, Cecilia, unearths his journal and is able to see him. His death was ruled an unfortunate accident, but he's convinced it had to be murder despite the fact he can't recall what happened in his last moments of life. Cecilia seeks the help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lar's rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.

  1. I definitely don’t think she’s losing her mind. I’m enjoying your take on ghosts flashing in and out, etc. Really a cool story! Great snippet…

  2. Good snippet. Love the cover. It’s how I’ve imagined her. That little girl lost look.
