Weekend Writing Warriors – Jan 10 – Sand and Sin

Welcome to my post for Weekend Writing Warriors  #wewriwa where authors share 8-10 sentences of their work.

I’m continuing with the 2nd excerpt from my smexy new release, Sand and Sin.  Navy SEAL, Jax Taylor is sniping on a rooftop in Afghanistan with two weeks left before heading back to his base in Coronado, CA when all hell breaks loose.

Jax’s heart rate dropped. His breathing slowed. Increasing pressure on the trigger, he exhaled and squeezed. The target plowed headfirst into the dust before the sound of the bullet echoed back.

Gunfire peppered the stagnant air from every direction. He scrambled to his feet and shouldered his sniper rifle and gear bag. With his standard-issue Colt M4A1 assault weapon pointed, he crept down the stairs.

At street level, he’d even the odds for the army boys. If the fucking shit-storm continued, there wouldn’t be much of an Afghan town left to protect. Conforming to the doorway, he aimed and picked off a single gunman about to unload into the street filled with US soldiers.

Outside, with his back to the plaster wall, he pinged targets like the metal ducks at a carnival.

Weekend Writing Warriors – Sand and Sin

Happy New Year! Welcome to Weekend Warriors, a weekend post where authors share 8-10 sentences of their work.

Well, another has year rolled out the door.  I’m well into the  back nine as a golfer might say. Don’t feel the chill of winter yet but the leaves are starting to fall. Wish the pounds would! Comfort reigns over vanity.  Simplicity brings the most enjoyment, family, friends and writing.

In celebration of the new year and my newest release, I’m offering ten sentences from my brand new release, Sand and Sin.  I did post some from it a year of so ago, so it may seem familiar to veteran readers. Navy SEAL, Jax Taylor is all about the mission until a sassy bartender knocks him off course.

Through shimmering waves of heat, Jax Taylor sighted his target through the second story window shielded by ratty, threadbare curtains. He shifted on his makeshift snipe stand, an overturned crib he’d found in the bombed-out mud-brick apartment complex. If he bit the big one today, his uncle and brothers in arms would probably be his only mourners. The latter would throw an epic party.

After hours on watch, remnants of the crosshairs burned into his retina from the scope of his M14. On loan to the army for the last few weeks, he counted down the days to when his team’s deployment ended. He could already taste a cool one on the beach. The chilly Pacific would offer a perfect respite from the heat of this stinking hellhole where the only water in quantity soaked his desert camos as sweat. AK-47 in hand, an insurgent finally scaled the low wall and sprinted across the street for a building occupied by US troops.

Game on, bastard.
