Boot and sweater weather is upon us! Please take all precautions to stay safe and healthy.
October is a very important month in The Sleepless City. October 10 is release day for Shifting Chaos. On that day it will become available in Kindle Unlimited. I decided on that date because it's the date Jonas Forge became a vampire way back in 1774 and October 10 is also Lucas Coate's birthday!
In celebration this week's snippet is a little bit from Forge and Lucas. To set the scene, they're stealing a liver from a cadaver...
“Gotcha.” Lucas grinned. “I can see fine with this light. Pass me the Metzenbaum scissors.” Forge blinked at Lucas and didn’t move. “The curved ones with the gold handles.”
“Okay,” Forge said and nodded. He shifted his weight and glanced back at the door at the same time he retrieved the requested instrument. “Put a move on. Blair has gone down the adjacent hall twice.” He used his toe to push the cooler under the table and closer to Lucas.
Holding the scissors and another pair of forceps in one hand, Lucas alternated how he angled and used them.
“This is a whole lot easier and faster when I don’t have to tie off vessels and worry about the patient bleeding out.” He dipped his head at his bag of supplies. “There is a rag and plastic bag in there. Mop up the spillage, will ya?”
Forge tipped his head and pulled a face.
“Get over it. You’re a vampire. Don’t try to pretend a little blood bothers you. You slurp the stuff through a straw.”
“It’s the mopping part I’m not happy about,” Forge grumbled. “And I’ve never used a straw in my life.” He did as Lucas asked, then stuffed the rag into the bag and set it to the side. When Lucas lifted the liver up, Forge used another rag to make sure nothing dripped to the table or the floor.
