Tidbit: On Fire, from Lost in the Shadows

Published July 26, 2013 by admin

So presuming Susan and I haven’t taken Louisville by storm and made everyone our minions yet, Fandom Fest officially kicks off today! My commitment tonight is helping out with Author Karaoke at 8:30 pm at Room 106, so in honor of that, here’s a short little blurb from one of my stories in the new book, Lost in the Shadows. This short bit is from the story On Fire, about a DJ who suddenly has to find a change in direction…or else.

***

The part of him that knew when to switch songs and when to hold back, the part that lived by the downbeat and the catchy hooks knew without a doubt that there was someplace he had to be. He exited his apartment, braced himself at the entrance to his building, and squinted into the oncoming night. His feet began to walk and he felt every step, every moment of contact against the crumbling street. Once he had danced on angels and demon
wannabes before bedding them, but now he trudged down the road with his long coat flapping to the crooning melody of a melancholy piano.

Intrigued? You can find the rest of that story along with many others in Lost in the Shadows!

Lost - 400x600

Amazon

Journey with authors Selah Janel and S.H. Roddey to a world where every idea is a possibility and every genre an invitation.

In this collection of forty-seven short stories, lines blur and worlds collide in strange and wonderful new ways.

Get lost with the authors as they wander among fantasy, horror, science fiction, and other speculative musings.

Shadows can’t hurt you, and sometimes it’s all right to venture off the path.
