The journal’s message… End of the Road @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday

Recap from last week's snippet: Cecilia makes a cup of tea before she settles down to read her father's journal and find out what secrets he left behind. Remember the eerie message her father had written: "I don't fear the reaper. It's the humans with death in their eyes that scare me shitless. If you're reading this, death found me when my back was turned."

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



Once it was brewed, she headed back to the study. Seemed only appropriate to read the journal in there, where her father could have possibly sat at the desk and jotted down his thoughts on those pages she was about to read. She placed the tea on the coffee table as she sat down on the edge of the sofa. Then frowned as she stared at the journal sitting there and opened to the eerie passage her father had written. She didn't remember leaving the journal open when she placed it on the coffee table. She turned in her seat and glanced around the room as if she'd find someone in there but of course she was alone. She stared at the journal again before she finally shook her head for feeling anything other than curious. She must have left the book open. It was the only explanation she was willing to accept. She snatched it up and settled back in her seat and started reading from the first page.

Unofficial Blurb for End of the Road

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. Oh, I like it. like Teresa said, I think her dad really wants her to read a certain part of the journal, too. Great snippet.

  2. I love all the uncanny and eerie notes in this story – another terrific excerpt today and can’t wait to find out more about what her father wrote. On the edge of my seat!
