Something familiar….End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Setup for this snippet with a recap from last week: Cecilia glanced at the journal that she still held in her hand. "Earlier, did you knock the journal off the desk?" She met his gaze then. "And if you did, how are you able to touch the journal but you can't touch me?"

Now for the snippet.

"I concentrated on moving the air around the journal so I wasn't actually touching anything." He lifted those broad shoulders of his in a shrug.

She remembered that gesture from when she was little. Something so familiar it made her eyes sting. She missed the gesture that had been so much a part of him. How had she forgotten about it until now?

"I'm not a scientist or whatever," he was still talking and she had to force herself to concentrate on his words. "I told you I don't know how this works or why." His gaze slid over her with what she thought might be appreciation.

Not ten sentences, but this was a better place to stop. The next few lines need to be together so they don't sound odd.

Love to hear your feed back. πŸ™‚

I'm busy working on edits...

Blurb:

Lars Gunner, the frontman for Silent Plaids, died 23 years ago and has been 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 was murder despite the fact he can't recall what happened to him in his last moments of life. Cecilia seeks help from Kaleb, a psychic, but as they resurrect the past, the secrets and lies surrounding Lars' rock and roll life just may be the death of them too.

  1. Love it and the premise–though that last line is kind of creepy? Sounds almost as if her dad is checking her out. However, maybe with more context (or the line that comes after), it would make more sense.

  2. Ghosts probably don’t know the in-depth explanations for how they do what they do! I think just about everyone can relate to feeling a swell of longing when reminded of something that was so much a part of a lost loved one.
