This week my teaser lines come from The Vanishment, by Jonathan Aycliffe, a haunted house tale that I'm thoroughly enjoying at the moment. In this snippet, our protagonist Peter Clare has been getting some writing done in the cottage by the sea he and his wife Sarah have rented for the summer.
By the time I put the pen down, it was midafternoon and I had written half a dozen pages. I reread them and was pleased to find the results better than I had expected. The best thing I had written in ages. The real thing for once.Reading this one for the R.I.P./XI challenge, and it's really got me hooked — perfect for this time of year, with autumn and Halloween approaching. Actually though, I took it to Hawaii with me last week, and it was perfect for reading on the beach or at the pool, too!
At that moment Sarah woke up screaming. (from p.18)
