Happy Sunday Sixers! Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate the comments and encouragement. I look forward to hopping around to other blogs and reading what other talented authors have shared!
Today, I'm continuing with my YA Paranormal, ONCE AND FOR ALL, which will be released later this year. The story centers around Phoebe Campbell and Todd Miller, and the reincarnation drama and ancient curse that wreak havoc on their senior year in high school. Phoebe and Todd don't exactly get along at the beginning of the story, and Phoebe, a talented art student (and social outcast) is mortified when Todd, the typical school jock, shows up in her art class the second semester of the school year. It gets worse when Miss Stockton, the art teacher, announces that their next assignment will require working in pairs. Something in Phoebe's gut tells her this is not going to go well.
The following excerpt shows Miss Stockton having the art students draw names to establish partners. As she approaches Phoebe, Phoebe dreads pulling a name out of the bowl.
She held the bowl out to me. I stared at it with hatred, as if the moment my hand reached in I would be infected with a nasty, flesh-eating bacteria.
With no other choice, I took a slip of paper, and was overwhelmed with a ridiculous feeling that something irrevocable and life-changing had just happened.
I don't know why I even bothered to look. But when I did, I was not surprised.
