Hello and welcome to everyone who’s here for the snippet (and everyone who wandered in by accident ;))! This week i’m posting from a new story. For now Ill just call it SB. It’s an erotic Romance that i’m pretty sure wants to be a novel when it grows up. The first draft is about two-thirds finished and i’m hoping to have it finished by the end of the year. It’s been a long time since i’ve written a full novel; once i’m more confident in my ability to pull it off i’ll share more details.
This is the opening 8 (with a little creative punctuation). Even though this doesn’t say much i’m not sure i want to go crazy with an intro–i just wrote a very emotional scene so i’d probably end up trying to cram the whole story in and make it even more confusing.

Scan; file; shred; clunk.
His hand froze just as he was about to pull a sheet of paper from the file folder lying open in the box. The sound of rushing water filled the basement, and in moments a wet stain cut across the cement floor. For a moment, he remained still and unbelieving but only a moment—one by one he moved the banker’s boxes to safety, and then the equipment—computer, scanner, external hard drives.
Thanks for reading!
