Contagion released!





In Celebration of Contagion’s release two days ago – here are six more from this story. Our heroine Tessa is having a tough day and she doesn’t want to hear anymore.

Kyl followed her. “It’s true. You know I would not lie to you.”
“If you tell me I just have to believe, or I can tap my heels together, I’m getting the fly swatter, fairy-man.” Her chest nearly burned with the rapid breaths. The dizziness would have knocked her over, but the sharp pain of loss and betrayal somehow kept her spine straight. She leaned on the nearest counter to keep from passing out.

There are lines I love no matter how often I go through the story. Mine is in that snippet. Still makes me laugh!

Remember to check out the other offerings –
