Sneak Peek Sunday-17th March 2013

Here is my Sneak Peek Sunday. Click here to check out all the other great excerpts.

This is a snippet from “Dirigibles Are Forever”, a steampunk story I finished a little while ago.

Jack stole across the hangar, keeping the bodies of the dirigibles between himself and the drone. Finally he found the ideal space at the back propeller of his own dirigible, the Highwayman, which had a circular open space before it. The drone slowly rolled through the space, sensors alert.

He lined up his shot, his arm movement hidden behind the propeller. The gun popped and the bolt whistled across. It hit exactly where Jack had aimed for, the center of its clockwork mechanism. The bolt silenced the alarm and froze the machine in place, but didn’t shut it down, which would have set off a secondary alarm.

He shoved the pistol back into his pocket and strode forward. His machinations had paid off. The Bismarck was parked beside his Highwayman. Jack tilted his head so his face remained hidden and pulled his tools out of his pocket.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
