Snippet Sunday: Young Witchcraft - 99 cent paranormal/young adult romance #wewriwa #snippetsunday

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my young adult romance, Young Witchcraft . You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:

About this snippet:  Rachel is torn.

**3rd Place Winner in the 2015 International Digital Awards in Young Adult Fiction, Short Story**


Joe hung out under the basket, jumped, and blocked a shot. Phil got the rebound and drove it down to their court. Joe now visibly limped. The coach called a time out and pulled him. Joe sat on the bench and rubbed his ankle, but didn't wince or frown.

Rachel sat on her hands. Should she go to him? Rachel drew in a long breath then ran a hand over her hair. Joe stared at his ankle and furrowed his brow. Broomsticks! 


Rachel's secret would have Cotton Mather rolling over in his grave. She's been raised from an early age to use magic for good, despite her temptation to cast a spell against Phil the bully who can't stop teasing her. 

Joe thinks Rachel is cool, especially when she weaves her healing magic spells on him, but he's got his own problems. It's not easy keeping Rachel safe from Phil's constant threats.

When Phil poisons Rachel, can love and little young witchcraft bring Rachel and Joe together or have years of Phil's bullying ruined their relationship for good?

  1. You did a great job creating conflict in this snippet.

  2. I'm as surprised as he is. Did she make his splints? Awesome!

  3. Broomsticks, indeed! She'd better be careful about getting witchy with him in front of everyone. :-)

  4. Her expletive at the end made me chuckle. As Christina said, "Broomsticks, indeed!"

  5. Love the premise of this story, Stephanie. And i agree that "broomsticjs" as an expletive is a touch of genius.
