Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, where participants share excerpts of their books or works-in-progress. It’s a fun way to sample new books and find new authors! Be sure to check out their website. Today’s selection comes from my book, Stay With Me (the full synopsis is below). Noah and his coworkers have spent a good part of the day trying to determine the mystery woman’s identity. A small detail leads Noah to a tattoo shop on the other side of town, where he meets Glen…
Noah swallowed hard as a very tall man stepped through the curtain and joined the man at the counter. He had to be about seven feet tall–a full foot and some inches taller than Noah. He was as dark as midnight with a broad, muscular chest and heavily tattooed arms that were busting out of the vest he was wearing.
Because what’s the point of getting tattoos if you can’t show them off and scare the hell out of everyone, Noah thought.
“This is the guy who called about Alma,” the other man said.
Noah wanted very much to deny he said or wanted anything, taking a step or two back as Glen crossed his arms over his chest and stepped forward. “What do you want with Alma?” he asked–or rather, growled.
“I… I don’t …I don’t know who that is,” Noah stuttered, then it occurred to him–they were talking about the woman.
