This week I’m sharing the thirteenth of sixteen stories from my upcoming release Love Scenes From the Black Market, a dark anthology. Book release is June 7th, with the cover reveal this coming Tuesday!
This week’s excerpt is the first 8 lines from The Slaver’s Chain, a supernatural tale set in the world of my upcoming novel Gun Witch. Sara is an apprentice witch tasked to investigate an old artifact locked away in a Southern mansion, and as the story opens she’s just getting her first look at the object of her search.
Uncoiled cold black metal stretched across the floor, an iron snake. The room was made of cold concrete marred with age. Pale dust rained to the ground, and cobwebs hung in the corners. The air was stale and still and smelled odd, not dirty or dank but certainly not clean. Forgotten.
That room stank of solitude.
The only door was made of solid steel, and it locked from the outside. There were no windows, no other furnishings save for a few fragments of shattered wood.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
