The A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013 is tiring me out, but I’m lovin’ it– so many new people to say howdy to! I’m co-hosting it on Amlokiblogs, so drop me a comment there if you have something to say about the challenge itself. On this blog, I’ll be featuring mostly indie-published book excerpts for all of April. I love reading, and supporting author-friends, and this is a good way to do both.
Elevator Pitch: Thirteen-year-old twin brothers Jayce and Val are about to jump the multi-verses on a dangerous dare, but true danger is closer to home than they realize.
I heard the Director engage the weapon, felt the hum against my skin as it charged.
Mom had stepped back onto the flight deck, one arm around Meg, the other covering her mouth. Her eyes screamed, No!
Dad stood as frozen as if his feet had been glued to the flight deck. He seemed to be saying something to Kramer in a very, very calm voice, but I couldn’t understand him. All I could hear was the whine of the weapon against my head.
I knew the moment it was charged, the moment the Director pressed his thumb against the discharge button.
When I fell forward, a sharp pain slicing into my knees, I remembered being surprised that I would feel more pain from my legs than from my head. But then, the brain is a mysterious thing.
