This week I'm offering snippets from a tale connected to THE BELTANE WITCH through Darius Winterbourne. Kendra and Phinn are facing the demon, but it leapt and Phinn tackled it, and now things are really weird.
Kendra screamed when she threw her spell as the demon leaped at her. She hadn’t expected Phinnius to attack the beast as it collided with her. The spell exploded over all of them, lighting the world in a fireball of light, and Kendra went down under the mass and stench of the creature Phinnius held.
Gasping, Kendra sat up and struggled to understand where she rested. The world wore a mantle of snow and ice, crystalline water dripping in stalactites from empty tree branches. A thick blanket of powdery snow draped over her and the ground around her.
Something whimpered beside her, sounding much like a distressed dog with an overly musical voice, and warm breath smelling of rancid meat filled her nose as a hot muzzle nudged her side. Kendra turned her head and met the green-gold gaze of the demon.
Oh, sweet Goddess.
The demon whined and nudged her again, flattening its ears in a good impression of submissive supplication. Kendra blinked. It was submitting to her?
See, he definitely should've stayed out of the way. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Charley Descoteaux, Jeff Tsuruoka, Veronica Scott, Gem Sivad, Jessica Subject, and Iris Blobel. Here's the short blurb as posted in the Spank or Treat 2014 Anthology:
As a warrior, Phinn Winterbourne believes he's a true hero until he meets witch Kendra MacGillivray, who isn't interested in being saved. But it's all fun and games until a demon comes after him, and they both fall Under Her Spell.
The short was entitled Under Her Spell - but it's only the beginning of a longer tale entitled: THE SAMHAIN SOLDIER. If you'd like a copy of the anthology, and it's still $0.99, you can find it here:
