This week I’m sharing the eleventh of sixteen stories from my upcoming release Love Scenes From the Black Market, a dark anthology.
This week’s excerpt is from The Desert, a short nightmarish tale of a young woman who suddenly finds herself in what she can only assume is the afterlife.
Everything was red.
Arched hills drenched with crimson dust stretched away in every direction, uninhabited by so much as an insect. Barren stones littered the landscape like discarded teeth, and the falling moon melted into the horizon. The sky was chalky scarlet, and looked like it had been painted with broken pencils.
The woman in the black dress moved with such speed and surety it took her a moment to realize she didn’t even touch the sand. Her hair was thick and dark and followed her like a tapestry. She floated through the air, barely three inches off the ground. Sand and loose stones parted in her wake.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
