Tuesday Teaser #17

Every Tuesday, I post a teaser for one of my current works in progress. I invite all of my writer buddies to join in!

The rules:
Post a link, image, quote, or excerpt related to or taken from your current WIP.
State the name of the WIP.
Do NOT explain yourself! Resist the urge to wax poetic. This is a hint, not an outline.

We Shall Not Sleep

Given the choice between Count Dracula and mustard gas, I would always choose the former. Always.

  1. Working title: The Other WIP. Ha ha. It’s another Middle Grade.

    Olina looked around the empty nestery, leaned in close to Tallisha’s ear and spoke in a hushed tone, ” That nasty snot coming out of Erp’s nose…”

    Tallisha looked over at her sickly-thin baby dragon as he snortled in his sleep; a thick mold-grey mucus draining from his nostrils.

    “it’s because he’s going to be able to breath fire.”

    “Breath FIRE?!” Tallisha yelped and her eyes grew large. Olina clapped a hand over her friend’s mouth and gave her a stern look.

    “I overheard some Cosmi talking behind the fledgling barn when I went to wash out Erp’s mash bucket. They said he is a throwback.”

    The astonished Tamer pulled Olina’s hand from her mouth and whispered,” What’s a throwback?”

    “It means he is going to be like a Wilding: gigantic, fire-breathing, and maybe even… dangerous.”
