Hi, I’m Karin Shah and I’m new to weekend writing warriors!
I love anime, manga, dogs, and of course, reading! I write Paranormal Romance.
I’m currently working on the final book in my Chimera Chronicles series. Bk 7, it’s more fun to read from the beginning, but readers should be able to jump in anywhere!
Bk1-6 are out now.😀
Eight sentence snippet***
Caleb needs to find his mate before he goes feral—whoops too late. A captive of a group using him for assassinations, his only hope is the serum they use to keep him human for short periods of time. Council enforcer Mika wants to track down the mysterious hitman she thinks she’s identified when she’s pulled into the search for a Chimera’s missing brother. This is their first meeting…
Surprise knocked the air from her lungs. She froze. He ducked close to her ear. His face buried in her hair. She could feel the buzz of sound through the bones behind her ear. His jaw moved, forming syllables.
Unable to resist, she skated the surface of his mind. He was singing, sort of. Ya da, da, da, da, da, Da, Da, Da.
He swung her into the moves of a dance, sticking her right hand out in front of them and gliding them across the floor, she had to go along, or be dragged. Ya da, da, da, da, da, Da, Da, Da. Ya da, da, da, da, da, Da, Da, Da. Ya da, da, da, da, da, Da, Da, Da…
Rage surged through her. Her attacks had had so little effect, he thought of it as a dance. A tango. ***

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. We always like new blood, even those of us who don’t write about vampires!
Thanks, Ed! It’s cool to see everybody’s excerpts. I’m making my way through such great content!
“Skated the surface of his mind…” Intriguing! I like the juxtaposition of her anger and intensity countered by his seeming indifference–singing and dancing. The nerve of him! lol
Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors! 🙂
Thanks, Theresa! And thanks for stopping by!
Welcome to the WWW! Really enjoyed this snippet. You have me hooked already! 🙂
Thanks, Julie! I’m having fun reading the snippets!
Welcome. I really enjoyed the snippet. She’s trying to fight and he thinks it’s a tango? Awesome!
Thanks, Alexis! Glad to have you stop by!
Welcome, and thank you for sharing your work! 😀
Welcome to WWW – I enjoyed the snippet, really captured my interest.
Thanks, Hywela! Glad you liked it!
Welcome! Sorry, I was a bit late. I was driving home from Phoenix yesterday and didn’t have a chance to pop in until now. Enjoyed the snippet. You drew me right in. I’m intrigued. I love that he believes her attack is a dance. I often picture the fight scenes as a something to choreograph like a fight opera, a brutal ballet, a warrior dance… So a tango is perfect. I love it!
