WIPpet Wednesday: "Do It Now"

     Happy March, WIPpeters! This is an exciting week - the week of my book trailer reveal. OK, I kind of let it sneak out sooner, so maybe you've seen it, but if you haven't ... let today be the day!! The book trailer for Slave Again is live on YouTube and is just begging for likes and views! Don't want to click a button to go to youtube, you say? Don't want to get distracted from your WIPpeting duties by going to a non-blog site? I completely understand. Here. Have an embedded book trailer:

Anyway, in honor of the fifth day of the third month, here are three sentences from page five of Slave Again.

***


Do it now, or you’ll never have the courage, you coward. Mee-Kyong wished Pang wasn’t asleep, but it had to be this way. If he was awake, she wouldn’t carry through.

     So what do you think she's about to do? Leave your guesses in the comments if you want.

Free Giveaways (everyone wins!): This is by far the biggest giveaway this blog has seen, so please check it out! Giveaway is now live at http://alanaterry.blogspot.com/2013/07/giveaway-time.html. Good luck!

Blog Love: Huge thanks to K L Schwengel for hosting the WIPpet Wednesday blog hop, where authors post snippets from the current Works In Progress.

Random Fact: I need to put a box underneath my desk so my feet will touch the "ground."

  2. That book trailer is awesome. One of the best I've seen.

    You are so skimpy on your WIPpets!!!! *grrr* Hmm...what is she going to do? Have we met Pang before? Given the dripping knife in the trailer...is she going to kill him?

    1. skimpy? SKIMPY? Come on... have you SEEN me in a bathing suit this season?
      Hehe, just kidding. I don't know - we've gotten so many more WIPpeters to check in on every week -- isn't skimpy good?

  3. Great trailer! Not sure I'm going to be able to read this one... sounds intense. Good, but... Oh, who am I kidding? I'll try. :)

    I think she's going to... kill him. Yep, that's my guess.

  4. This sounds ominous Alana. Is she about to hurt him a little bit to get away?

  5. Sounds like she's escaping, maybe killing/hurting him in the process?

    Loved the book trailer.

  6. Loved the book trailer - amazing! So excited I got to read the first chapter, can't wait to read the whole thing. Well done Alana!

  7. Excellent book trailer, Alana. Though the perfectly clean skin on the legs of the person running through the woods didn't quite ring true to me. Or the well hemmed jeans of the log-walker. The rest? Intense.

    Short lines, but a strong sense of impending action.

  8. Really nice book trailer. The company did their name and your book justice.

    I want to guess what she's going to do, but I'm too afraid of being wrong. I plead the 5th! Does that work?
