Hello and welcome to my snippet!
It’s great to be back online, in the world, and living as an adult again! After seven months away, I feel like I have a lot of work ahead of me to catch up. So it might seems strange that my snippet this week is from a book that released in 2015. There’s a reason (I think there’s a reason) and as soon as I can, I’ll spill the details.
For now, here’s the introduction of one of my favorite characters of all time: Buchanan House. The camp is on the Central Oregon Coast, and this snippet is from Buchanan House: Book One.
The boundaries of the parking lot were framed by large round logs that didn’t appear to be held in place by anything except time.
The long structure hunkered down under the canopy of trees, barely two stories tall. A porch wrapped all the way around the bottom floor. Double entry doors broke up a row of windows across the building’s facade. The grayish wood siding didn’t seem to have been painted since the Summer of Love, but might’ve once been blue. A few slats were missing from the porch railing, giving the building a gap-toothed grin that made Eric shiver.
Thanks for reading!

The detail is so powerful in this snippet, I can really picture the house!
Thank you! ❤
I'd always wanted to write a series of stories featuring a grand old house, and now I can say I have. 😀
Sounds like a great place — private and peaceful.
IKR? I would so go there on vackay if I could find it!
Thanks for reading! ❤
The description makes me feel as if I’m in the location.
Gah, I love this series! I think I need to go back and read this one again. Love the description of the house.
Thanks, Amy! ❤
I re-read some of the others in the series lately (the ones I have in paperback, because I ran out of paper books before I was cleared to read eBooks *smh*) and it was nice to see these characters again.
Wow, love the detail in this scene. It’s as if I’m standing right there in front of Buchanan house. 🙂
This house makes me shiver too.
“A few slats were missing from the porch railing, giving the building a gap-toothed grin” <- love that sentence!!
Love that description – “didn’t appear to be held in place by anything except time” 😀
Welcome back! Beautiful description. ♡
I like the ambiguity. Not knowing the story, it could go either way from there.
Love the description
