‘The Wrong Man…’ Scene Excerpt [M]

Draft Scene for a Pulp Fiction Story in Development

I had seen her a few times. What she was doing in this hole wasn’t my business. But she didn’t fit in. Nice clothes; her face, an un-inked ivory oval framed by dark hair, caught the dim lights in the bar. Eye’s that if the light was better would have probably been a bright blue. And curves; the kind to make a train jump the tracks. Distracting, follow her every move just to see things shift under her clothes, kind of curves.

EXCERPT ‘On 7th Street, An Angel Fell’

The Opening

Are you a lucky little lady in the City of Light? Or just another lost angel… City of Night…” —Jim Morrison   She had misjudged when they would take her wings; punishment for her questions, her doubts. For her the fall was real. Pain. She knew that was what they—humans—called it. But had never felt […]

‘There Was Something About Her’

Scene Excerpt

A little warm-up writing (draft) from this morning’s coffee… (spurred by this image and a ‘mock’ cover I created that could one day be a real story). Spring had died, drowned by the climbing mercury in the giant thermometer on the brick wall of Tilson’s bar she could see by day in rising and fading […]

‘The Sketch from Ahnenerbe #7 | 30 April 1932’

SCENE EXCERPT from the novel expansion of BLINDED

“The unconscious sends all sorts of odd beings, terrors, and deluding images into the mind whether in a dream, daylight, or insanity. For the human kingdom, beneath the floor of the neat little dwelling we call our consciousness, goes deep into dark unsuspected caves.” Alex looked out the window as he spoke. The light through smeared […]

A Vignette

The AFTERWORD for a client project that published in February 2018. When Jack (the author) and I were talking about that book—his second and the complement to his debut title published last year—I thought it was the perfect sequel. And as we developed his first draft, the subject of conversation turned slightly to a title […]

EXCERPT ‘A hard blow to the balls’

SCENE DRAFT | The D'Arkane Files

“I’m not going to attempt to teach you any advanced hand-to-hand combat. If you come on anyone or anything and I’m not there to handle them don’t screw around. Use a gun or a blade.” Alex showed Morgan the Fairbairn-Sykes commando knife in his hand. It looked like a long double-edged dagger. And was very […]

EXCERPT ‘She Was Always Called Just G’

SCENE DRAFT

“Hey Professor,” Bob asked Jim Sutton, reading at the end of the table, who had been a college teacher before getting drunk one too many times at university functions. “What’s your opinion of the new guy… Bradley?” Jim marked his spot in the book with a finger and looked blearily up, scanning the break room […]

EXCERPT SCENE | “Leaves, Vanilla and Cinnamon…”

a scene from Through a Lens of Dark & Light by Dennis Lowery

“YOUTH and beauty fade, flesh sags. We lose some of the very things that made us who we are… but inside we are still young. Still handsome and beautiful. Always who we were as we created who we are. As we age, we’re always two versions of ourselves: the person from our youth, part of […]
