Weekend Writng Warrior Blog Hop once again! (RO)

Howdy!

I hope ya’ll are having a good weekend  It’s been crazy busy around here, but not so much that I can’t offer up another Weekend Writing Warrior excerpt.

This week I’m offering up an small snippet from my book, Cole’s Redemption.  A desperate young woman barters her most prized possession, her mother’s wedding ring, in order to buy a husband from the gallows in order to have him work her silver mine.

And, when you’re done here, skip on over to the Weekend Writing Warrior page and check out other great excerpts.

WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS

~The Excerpt~

“Well, little girl, just lookie what’s goin’ on! You didn’t tell me we was having another hanging.”

Natty Lane, sole proprietor of the Denton Lane Silver Mine, stood along the edge of the crowd, stretching on tiptoes, and trying to see the spectacle that was gathering at the foot of the gallows.

“Yeah, I did, Dermott. I’ve told you every day for a week. Remember the trial we went to last Monday? And then we talked about how we were going to ride into town and fetch us a man to help around the place?”

~End~

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Reading

  1. Interesting story, I can picture the crowd waiting for the hanging!

  2. Interesting premise. You hear about singles bars being a bad place to pick up men, but the gallows has got to be worse!

  3. Great eight! Love the premise. Next time I need a husband… Lol.
