WeWriWa Post 2/14/16

Happy Valentine's Day!

After a long hiatus, I'm back with another snippet from my short story, Pig in a Poke. The remainder of the story can be found in The Chocolate House-All for Love-Anthology.

Take some time to check out the rest of the WeWriWa snippets! You'll be glad you did.



Hysteria bubbled in Letty’s chest, and she sensed an invisible noose tighten around her throat. She shook the papers she held. “It cannot be correct.”
“Letty.” Her grandfather turned sightless eyes in her direction. “Hold tight to your temper, child. Mister Brice did the job requested of him and has paid us. Now it’s time to return home.”
Letty bit back the urge to scream. “He’s not providing payment. He's

cheating us.”
