Welcome to this week’s edition of Christian Fiction Friday brought to you by me and my lovely and talented co-host, Alana Terry! This is a chance for Christian authors to post short snippets from their works in progress! Easy and fun!
Please note that there will be no Christian Fiction Friday on April 3, 2015. Please enjoy the holiday weekend.
My snippet this week is from my upcoming book, A Harmony for Steve, book 4 in the Song of Suspense Series:
His promise repeated itself over and over again in his mind. The single kidney he had couldn’t take any more abuse, and one more binge might be the last. The message from the doctor resonated loud and clear. As much as he had spent the last thirteen years running as far and and fast away from whatever deity reigned above, he had no desire to meet Him anytime soon. So he’d chill on the drinking and the drugs, and he’d stick to not smoking even though right now the need for a cigarette screamed through every single pore in his skin.
When he thought he might be able to stand without falling back down or throwing up, he shakily stood and stumbled into the bathroom. He barely recognized the man staring back at him in the mirror. Black circles framed red rimmed eyes. A long beard covered his face and his hair lay in greasy strings all around his hollow cheeks that sunk into yellowed skin. One of his earlobes was crusty with dried blood where he’d apparently ripped out an earring.
Drink. Then shower. Then food.
Now it’s your turn! Just link your Christian Fiction Friday! Here are the rules:
1. Christian Fiction Friday is a blog hop where authors post short (400-ish words or less) snippets from their current works in progress (not published pieces).
2. Keep it PG-13 or lower. No swearing, no sex scenes. If you have a particularly violent scene or deal with a heavy or controversial subject matter, please include a disclaimer at the beginning of your post.
1. Visit at least some of the other Christian Fiction Friday authors each week and comment on their blogs.
2. Don’t offer critiques unless the author specifically asks for it in his or her post.
3. Please include this blurb at the end of your weekly post:
