My teaser this week comes from Marked Yours.
“No!” Nick was on his feet the minute Todd stood and stepped away. “You can’t do that alone. You can’t go out there by yourself!”
Smiling softly, Todd rested one hand on Nick’s neck. “Nicky, I’ve been doing this by myself for a long time.”
“Alone? Not with your father?”
“I’m not staying in here while you go out there alone. I can feel them, Todd. They’re wrong; they’re angry.”
Todd barked a short laugh. “No kidding. They’re dead, and they shouldn’t even be here.”
“Don’t make me stay in here. Please. Maybe I can see or feel more than you, and that would help us.” His statement was punctuated with another wave of ghostly hatred. Nick sucked in a breath and grabbed the chair to stop how he’d started swaying without warning. “They hate—” He looked up, meeting Todd’s eyes. “—you.”
“Dandy.” Todd crossed the room and looked out the window, turned his head side to side. “Okay. Here’s the plan. The rocks aren’t that bad. They can’t be too deep—not like if they were buried in a grave somewhere. We start going through the rocks and find anything we can, bodies or things that may have belonged to them. Most folks just die and go away, so there’s a reason they’re still here.” As Todd talked, he pulled a handgun from his duffel and handed it over to Nick. “Shoot at any of them you see. This has scatter pellets that are magnetized and some salt mixed in. They hate that. It drives them back.”
“Do they know why we’re here?”
Marked Yours is available from JMS Books, Amazon and other fine book sellers in eBook and paperback. There is also a boxed eBook set of all six books!
