#SnippetSunday – Night Train (noir) – June 15, 2014
Snippet Sunday is a Facebook group for writers I’ve been privileged enough to have been accepted into.
From the group guidelines;
“Welcome to Snippet Sunday, where writers come together to share a few sentences of their current project–whether it’s a recently released novel, a WIP (work in progress), or an older manuscript that’s being revived. Intended to hook readers, gather feedback and build an author’s fan base, Snippet Sunday is the FB group that does all three.”
Today’s Snippet comes from the latest chapter of my serial noir novella, “Night Train”, set in 1928.
You can read the whole chapter here; http://picspiration.blogspot.com/2014/06/jeff-tsuruoka-week-103-night-train-part.html
Things have moved along a little since the events of last week’s snippet. Madeline has decided that it’s time to un-ass the AO. Some kind of cunning escape plan of her devising has been alluded to… Is it time to put it into play? Here’s the snippet…
“Time to go,” said Madeline. She put her arm around me and tried to guide me to the door.
“This is your escape plan?” I asked.
“No. My escape plan involved negotiation and much less facial damage. You kinda put a bullet in that one, honey.”
“That leaves my plan.”
“You have a plan?”
“I always have a plan!”
She gave me the stink-eye.
“I usually have a plan,” I mumbled.
“That’s what I thought,” she growled. She grabbed a hold of my hand. “Let’s go.”
Thanks for stopping by…
