Snippet Sunday 1/5

Hey–sorry I’ve been away, but have been having problems–financial, health, and uploading my novella “Tasteless Holidays” to Amazon. So here’s a snippet from it…Scotty and Lorrie Caldwell are newlyweds who both get laid off from their jobs right before the holidays…then Lorrie finds out she’s pregnant…in this scene, she’s on her way to the hospital with Scotty and her brother…

The radar detector in the cab beeped, a sure sign that cops were in the area. If they showed up and asked what the hurry was, Scotty knew he’d blurt out something stupid. After he thought of every idiotic thing he could say, sirens went off—the severe thunderstorm and tornado sirens—not the cops. Jay had his radio on. The announcers gave quick, scary traffic and weather updates. Scotty looked out the window—a big mistake. He saw a huge red maple tree get uprooted, and land in the front yard of an apartment building.

  1. Snippet, really means ‘snippet’! Would like to see more. Freaky happenings in the story. I’ve been driving when a tornado type storm blew in suddenly and a tree was uprooted in front of me. Glad I was going slow…. I can relate to your story!
