Excerpt“Sarah, we’ve got to go.”
He didn’t hear a reply, other than the ongoing hum of the hair dryer. Sighing, he stood from the bed and walked over to the bathroom door. He knocked lightly.
“Baby? Are you almost done?”
She should have been able to hear him from the closed door, but she didn’t respond.
“Sarah?” he said, suddenly concerned. He turned the door handle and let the door swing open.
The bathroom was empty…

ExcerptComing back to reality, I remembered my manners. “Hold on, let me get my purse, just one sec.” I took a step back into the house and turned, setting the vase on the hall table to free my hands. As I carefully set it down, I ran my hands up to the stem of the vase to make sure it was settled.

Immortal Luck by Magen McMinimy
Magen loves creating worlds for her readers to get lost in and characters to fall in love with. She loves to read and spends as much of her free time with her husband, family and friends as possible. She lives in the beautiful state of Idaho and loves everything about it, the summers where she enjoys camping, BBQ’s with friends, and the farmers markets. She especially loves the winters finding them to be magical when they blanket the mountains and trees with snow. Believing life is what you make of it she follows her dreams with the support of her family and friends.
Excerpt:He’d heard the complaints over and over again, the grumbles of the intoxicated derelicts that moved all around him. The neon lights gave haunting shadows to the depression the city had laid upon them. The American’s called it Sin City, made cracks about ‘what happened there stayed there’ and of course Zander’s favorite gripe of the house always wins.
It wasn’t so much that the house always won, it was that creatures like him hunted for the lucky ones.
