Bad News #indielicious

Hey everyone!

Well, the contest from last week didn't work out. I didn't expect it would. I whipped up my logline in a flash, and well, since my novel is a genre-bender and I called Shattered Secrets a YA Fantasy, the judges were probably left scratching their heads after the first 250 words.

I'm not offended. In fact, part of me is relieved. More about that later.

For now, we dive deeper into my made up character's problems. Dad and Mom chased Mark out of the room, but a couple officers replaced the jerky boy, and they wanted to know every detail about the kidnapping that Abby could recall.

And you guys know how overprotective Dad is . . . .


~"It's late," Dad said, getting to his feet. He walked over to the officers, then stood behind them. A towering threat to leave his little girl alone.

Officer Daniels nodded. "A couple more questions, if you don't mind, Mr. Nichols?"

Dad met my eyes, the wrinkles at the edges twitching just a bit.

"I'm fine, Dad."
"You're very brave." Officer Paulson smiled. "I'm not sure how long you've been awake, or what you know of the situation, Miss Nichols, but we need to know everything that happened to you. Do you have any idea who these young men were, what they wanted, or where they were from?"

For the first time since I woke up, I realized no one told me whether my kidnappers made it out of the fire alive. "Did you arrest them, sir?"
The sting of Psycho Number Two's hand making contact with my cheek resurfaced, and I winced.

Officer Paulson glanced at his partner, who nodded.

"No, and they didn't die in the fire either. The men who took you are still out there . . . ."~

Well, that is NOT what Abby wanted to hear. Check back next week to see what happens!



  1. Uh - oh... Is she going to join the search?

  2. Scary. No wonder her dad is overprotective. I would be, I think. Things are kind of coming together. You have me really curious, Erin.

  3. Nothing is scarier than to find out your kidnappers are still out there..yikes! Great teaser :)

  4. Oh, man! Not good! I hope she stays where she is! EEEEEK!

  5. Oh you completely screwed with our heads! I thought for sure the bad guys would be dead and they aren't. This is one tough heroine you have on your hands. Love these teasers!

  6. Uh oh! Poor Abby!

  7. eeks! Can't wait for next week!
