Hey there fellow WIPSTERS!  Today I'm busy proofreading our newest manuscript that hopefully will take a trip to the publisher next week and thought I'd share a snippet with you!  Under the working title of Protected by Her Daddy Doctor, this is an AP/Romantic Suspense story that has a serial killer scanning the streets of Ft. Lauderdale in search of his next victim.  I've always enjoyed a good murder mystery, but the latest psychotic character we've cooked up is seriously scaring the crap out of me!  Did I mention the year is 1975?  See what you think.

 Ft. Lauderdale, Florida 1975

Thinning his lips in consideration, he carefully and purposely laid out his brand new black T-shirt and faded blue jeans on the bare mattress.

Yes, this will allow me to blend in quite nicely!

With a towel wrapped around his waist, he moved to stand in front of the mirror. Sliding the comb through his wet, wavy brown hair, he deliberated which bar to attend that evening and bent forward to stare with intensity at his reflection.  An evil sparkle blazed through his brown eyes as he stooped to turn up the volume on the radio while humming the familiar tune.

That will always be our song, my lovely.

Tapping his foot to the beat of Rock the Boat, a sinister smile tugged at the corner of his lips as he fondly remembered dancing to the same song with his last date – moments before he ended her life.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to visit the other cool stops on this hop!  Have a great week! ~ shelly
