Snippet Sunday: 99 cent paranormal romance: Young Witchcraft #wewriwa

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 tries to help Joe.  

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


She pointed toward his foot, "Are you all right?"
"I can play with it."
Doug reached out toward her and she recoiled, giving him a strained look. He quickly held up his hands, "Sorry, I thought you might have another bottle for me."
"Don't touch me." Her voice was low, almost harsh. A sudden breeze blew past Joe. Though Rachel never said, he noticed that when Rachel grew upset, the wind tended to blow, its intensity a reflection of her mood.
Doug frowned and turned to watch the game.


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. I like the detail of the breeze when she's upset. I wonder why she doesn't want him to touch her. Great snippet.

  2. Interesting - the wind and her not wanting him to touch her.

  3. Interesting. She's got him all interested in her powers, yet she won't let him touch her.

  4. If he can't touch her, that will make a romance difficult. :) Great snippet.

  5. Hm, I wonder what she has against Doug? Is Joe just standing there while Doug is upsetting her? Interesting snippet!

  6. She has personal space issues. Interesting. And no control over her emotional spell fallout. Also interesting. Nice snippet.
