Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from the fifth book in my Shifter Towers series, DEMON ON JACKSON STREET. It is set to release MONDAY! Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance.
*FREE! From Monday, January 18 to Friday, January 22, the second book in the series, MINK OMEGA IN HIDING, will be FREE on Amazon.
Set-up: Last weekend, I shared with you a little bit more about Toby's life, how he had Benji's gang after him lately, and no one to protect him from them.
This weekend, I was going to share a bit more of Toby's life, but I shared the entire first chapter of this story on my blog this past week. So, I'm skipping to chapter two. If you missed the posts with the first chapter, you can find them here and here. Now, in chapter two, I'd like to introduce Jet...
“And another soul for me.” I clicked my fingers in the air, rubbing it in my older brother’s face that I was a better demon than him and always would be. “That’s 3,495 for me. Have you even reached 2,000 yet?”
Crow glared at me, and, though I could see the fire in his eyes, I wasn’t worried. I knew my worth.
He balled his fists. “One day you will fail. Father has predicted it. And on that day, I will knock you down where you belong.”
**And here's a little more...**
I laughed. Father had nothing but praise for me. My brother was holding onto false hopes. “You’re as bad as these humans with their greedy dreams. You should be careful, Crow, or you’ll sell your soul to me just to experience the false reality where you’re better than me.”
His bottom lip stuck out in a pout as he continued to glare. “You wait.”
Why would I wait when I could stay ahead? I wasn’t going to stand around until I received my next assignment to collect souls. I knew the perfect place to do so and have fun while I was there. I glanced at the watch I wore to maintain my human façade. “No time. Got a party to go to. Be sure to say hello to dear Father after you stomp your way back to the Dark Realm.”
DEMON ON JACKSON STREET
Shifter Towers book five
Once upon a time there was a demon who was the best at convincing people to sell their souls. That was me. Is me. And now I have a new assignment, one Father told me would be difficult. I didn’t know what “difficult” meant until I met the young man, someone who has barely anything. Collecting his soul should be easy, right? There are so many things I can give him. Except, he doesn’t believe he deserves a better life. I have to find something he desires before the assignment is given to my brother. Because Crow uses the most villainous means to obtain souls. Lines I don’t cross. And I don’t want to see Toby hurt. There has to be another way.
I’m not like them. I can’t shift into a predator to defend myself, or even into a small rodent to run and hide. The wolf shifters know that every time they rough me up and steal my food. I always wish for a guardian angel to protect me from them. Then one day Jet appears, looking nothing like the angel I’d imagined. But I don’t know if I should trust him. He makes me feel things no other alpha ever has. Dangerous things. Not good when I have to stay focused on my grandmother. I don’t know how much longer I’ll have her around.
