I’m so pleased to share my news with my fellow fictioneers today, that I’ve signed a three-book deal with Bookouture. You can see the official announcement here. Excited!
I’m trapped and fear pinpricks my skin.
Fear and sweat.
My lungs grapple for air. I’m going to die.
He forced me to wear fishnet stockings.
I wish I’d never met him.
The box is too small and my muscles scream.
His voice low and angry, and I swallow my tears. Search for a way out.
My palms sting as they slap against the wood and then I feel it. The catch.
I sprawl onto my hands and knees, blinking in the spotlight.
The magician bows.
I’m never being his assistant again.
