I’m sharing my work-in-progress of a serial killer torturing a college campus with urban legends.

Here’s my excerpt:

…I’m not even a bad guy. I only kill with urban legends for true authentic research. After my future novel becomes a bestseller, I’ll have no reason to ever kill again. I promise. I cared for Savannah, but she had to go. When I stuffed her body in the hotel mattress, I knew there was no going back on the plan. I’m just lucky the smell didn’t disgust the hotel guests or staff. I’ve already cleaned the room and returned my key. No more hiding bodies. I want this town to be scared shitless.

That’s the end of this week’s snippet. If you’d like to read more, I’m ending this chapter and introducing what happens in the morning. Main characters, Wayne and Wilk (roommates) are introduced to you guys.

I need to see true reactions of these crazy crimes, so I can make sure my side characters in my novel act appropriately. I want this situation as realistic as possible for my readers.

——-

Wayne woke to a blood curdling scream. He jolted out of bed; his feet slipped on the carpet, but he caught himself before he could fall. He thought he was having a nightmare. When he saw Wilk rubbing sleep snot from his eyes, looking afraid, Wayne knew he was awake.

He asked, “Is that Elena?”

I Think the Universe’s Trying To Tell Me Something…

Yesterday, I was excited to see a bag of Doritos on sale at Walmart with my birthday on it. Naturally, I had to buy the chips, thinking the universe’s trying to tell me something.

Flash forward to being in the passenger seat while dad was driving. I glanced up quickly and noticed GHOST written on the back window. The light gray words  were faded, reminding me of the time I saw a ghost appear in the full length mirror when I was a kid.

My mind started racing:

  • Will I turn into a ghost on my birthday???
  • Will I see a ghost on my birthday???
  • Is a ghost trying to contact me RIGHT NOW???
  • Oh please, please, please don’t. I can’t handle ghosts right now. I wouldn’t be able to help.
  • Why write ‘ghost’ though? Why not just appear?
  • Am I losing it???

Wanting to see if I was crazy or not, I blurted out to my dad, “I see ‘ghost’ written on your back window.” He gave me a look (lol) then glanced himself through the rear view mirror. He started laughing then explained how there was a liquor bottle with the word ‘ghost’ in the brand name in his car.

I thought about that even though I couldn’t see the bottle in the back, nor was there an outline of a bottle  with the words I saw in the back window. But that explanation was less scary than a ghost trying to contact me…I still say the universe is trying to tell me something though. I keep having vivid dreams of places I visited frequently in my childhood and I’ve had a few dreams of some deceased relatives. I’m talking to them in my dreams, but the second I wake up, I can’t remember the conversations. I can only remember the overall things that happened in the dreams and how it made me feel.

What do you guys think? Was ‘ghost’ just something from a liquor bottle? Or is someone/something trying to send me a message?

I’m sharing my work-in-progress of a serial killer torturing a college campus with urban legends. Last weekend I had a brain fart, thinking I added myself to the blog hop, so if you didn’t get to read the fate of Elena’s suitemate, here it is. Sorry about the brain fart!

Here’s my excerpt for this week:

…I’ll have to be an actor not to laugh at the stupidity of most people. No one will ever guess it was me. Savannah’s body stunk up the whole floor. I’m really surprised no one woke up. I was on such a high when I was in Elena’s dark room. Putting the chloroform over her face, she never had a chance to wake up. I could’ve done so many things to Elena while she was unconscious, and no one could’ve stopped me. Such a thrill!

That’s the end of this week’s snippet. If you want to continue reading, here’s the rest:

I could’ve killed Elena. I could’ve strangled her like I had Savannah. I could’ve cum inside her without her knowing, but I’d never do that. I’m not a monster.

I’m sharing my work-in-progress of a serial killer torturing a college campus with urban legends.

Here’s my excerpt:

…“Get your shit together. Stop partying hardcore if you can’t handle your liquor. I’m tired of smelling your nasty puke all the time. Clean your got damn mess up.”

When the footsteps faded away, he smiled in relief, especially when a door slammed. Rushing, he took a container of blood out of the duffel bag. With a paintbrush, he wrote on the mirror.

#

My heart skipped ten thousand beats a minute, anticipating if I’d get caught dragging my duffel bag down the hall. Just think, I’m the only one who has the video of what happened tonight. When everyone wakes up, it’ll truly be a mystery.

I found Mrs. Average Evaluates on Twitter looking for people to interview for her ‘Writer of the Week’ blog series. Not passing up the opportunity, I contacted her. Please check out her awesome blog.She writes book reviews and gives author interviews. I’m blessed to be getting a lot of support from the UK. I could always picture myself moving to Canada, but maybe I need to relocate to the UK 🙂  I can see myself in London, Dublin, or in a small village in Italy.

I’m sharing my work-in-progress of a serial killer torturing a college campus with urban legends.

Here’s my excerpt:

Sweeney Todd heard footsteps in the suite room before he heard a door close. His heart caught in his chest as he stood still. He couldn’t believe this was happening! He never bothered to check if the bathroom door was locked! What if a suitemate entered the room?

He held his breath, afraid of making any noises. He listened to someone peeing. Someone coughed. Someone flushed. Someone pounded on the bathroom door.
