Weekend Writing Warriors-Shadow Codex Snippet 3
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors, the perfect place to discover new authors and fall in love with their writing. Each Sunday we share 8 to 10 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
I’m continuing to share from my upcoming release Shadow Codex, which releases next Tuesday, April 5th. Last week witch Caleigh contemplated the fact that she was on a quest to banish an angry god hell-bent on the destruction of the world and had only a measly seven days to do it. This snippet is a few paragraphs on and has just a touch of creative punctuation.
Did it make her the worst person in the world that she wasn’t that excited about this quest because it meant missing her monthly book club? She loved books and the great discussions her little group usually had, but the main reason she was bummed was that she wouldn’t sit beside yummy and delicious Sawyer for two-plus hours.
That and having him drop by the store were the highlights of her month.
Sawyer Hudson. She sighed; one of the sexiest men alive. No, halt that thought-the sexiest man alive; at least for her.
And so far out of her league he was in a different universe. But those moments when they talked books—usually disagreeing as much as possible because that was the most fun—she was in seventh heaven.
Well, not this month and if she didn’t get her act together, maybe never again.
Talk about motivation.
Here is the preliminary blurb:
One witch. One shifter. One angry god hell-bent on the destruction of the world.
Witch Caleigh hunts for the Shadow Codex. She has seven days to unearth it and learn the spell to banish a god before he can do the wipe out the world thing. She didn’t anticipate being joined by sexy Sawyer, the man she’s had a crush on for months. After having suffered devastating loss she’s no longer willing to risk her heart, so a crush is all it can be.
Sawyer has one goal: fulfil his duty as alpha and protect his pack at all cost. Being sidetracked by luscious Caleigh wasn’t part of the plan. When he discovers they are after the same book he’s happy to savor every moment with her. That is all he can do. Because bringing a human into a world where physical prowess is everything would kill her.
The chemistry between them grows explosive until danger catapults them over the edge. Caleigh has to decide how much she’s willing to risk. Sawyer needs to determine if his pack is all that matters. When danger closes in it may be easier to banish a god than to face their inner demons.
I am super excited about the release next week. I’ve seen a draft version of the cover and can’t wait to share it with you and the rest of the world. I’m neck deep in preparation for RT the week after next. I always think I know what I’m doing until I get to this point and then freak out with all the things I hadn’t thought of yet. Fingers crossed I’ll manage to tick some things off my list before I get on the plane;).
Happy Sunday and have a fabulous and productive week!
And of course I can’t leave you without a sexy shifter;).

It does sound like motivation to come back to Sawyer. But then again, maybe Sawyer can go on the quest with her. Congrats on your release this week! 🙂
Oh, he will…she just didn’t plan on it;). Thank you, Jessica.
Oh those “out of your league” guys! Catnip LOL. Enjoyed the snippet!
Lol, yes, they are the best;). Thank you, Veronica.
This sounds like fabulous motivation to keep the world from ending. I hope she pulls it off!
Lol, thank you, Christina.
Not the sort of problem I’d expected her to have. This made me chuckle (heartless of me, I know). Good snippet!
Lol, thank you, Peter.
My best to you and please don’t end the world. Just make a lot of sales.
Lol, I will do my best, Charmaine;). Thank you!
Well, she probably wouldn’t have had time to read the book what with saving the world and all. Very fun snippet. I’m glad she has her priorities straight.
Thank you, Alexis.
Yummy Sawyer! And here I thought it was all about the books, lol.
Lol, thank you, Rose…and the books are the best excuse;).
Oh no, not missing book club! The tragedy…
Those sound like some great book discussions, too!
Lol, yes, indeed. And their discussions turned…heated most of the time;).
Congratulations on the upcoming release, Tina!
Thank you, Ed.

Thank you, Eliza.
Save the world…or 2 hours with Sawyer…Save the world…or 2 hours with Sawyer… After looking at the pic, I’m having a hard time deciding too. lol.
I like your heroine. It is humorous that her current dilemma is a choice to save the world or see the man.
Thank you, Teresa. And I love that Caleigh’s humour appeals:).
