Angels vs Demons Blog Hop-Day One

Hello from Harlie’s Book Blog.  Thank you for finding me and participating.  The prize for my blog is a $20 GC to either Amazon or B&N.  For you reading pleasure, I’m going to share some snippets from a story that Harlie is working on.  Just leave a comment w/email address after reading the snippets and let her know if you like or hate it. She can take the heat but keep in mind its unedited and raw.  Yep, she is trying to write a story and it features an angel named Tony…Here you go…

Snippet #1

One night, Kim sat in her favorite chair reading the latest romance novel when she heard a noise from inside the house. That’s weird, she thought. Shaking her head, she went back to reading her book. A few minutes later, she heard the noise again but this time from a different part of the house. Okay, now this is freaking me out. I don’t have a dog or cat. No one lives here but me and I know that I locked all the windows and doors. Plus, with it not raining outside, the sound was a little eerie. Shrugging it off she went back to her book.

Perched on the sideboard in the dining room was figurine of an angel. This was no ordinary angel. This angel could move from room to room without the actual figurine moving from its perch. I always thought that some of grandmother’s figurine’s looked at me when I moved around the house. It gave me the creeps. The whole house was creepy. I inherited the house when her grandmother passed away last year. I swear, if I hadn’t needed a place to live, I wouldn’t have moved in here. Just then, another sound and it came from the kitchen. Okay, I’m going to bed. I can’t concentrate on my book with my “ghost” buddy moving around in the house. Leaving the lights on, I fixed the coffee pot for in the morning and walked upstairs to bed.

More tomorrow….

  1. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article. I’ll be sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post. I’ll certainly return.

  2. I have a soft spot for both angels and demons.

    Any tortured, sexy hero does it for me. 😉

    The sneak peek was fun. I look forward to reading more. I am generally a Demon girl but I like to read about angels too.

  5. Of course I read that snippet right before bed. I like them both, but I prefer demons, especially those with a bit of a soft side. I particularly like Al from Kim Harrison's Hallows series


  6. This sounds interesting. I would like to read more. The only thing I noticed and it is unedited I know was it went from 3rd person to 1st person. Cant wait to read the next one.

    I don't think I'd be able to sleep if I was too freaked to read 🙂
    With angels vs. demons, I like my angels to be bad boy angels.

  35. andieleah says:

    Great setup…can't wait to check out part two! Totally relate…my grandma's house was creepy too except she didn't have a angel figurine she had a creepy clown pic that made me scared of clowns to this day…and my sister and cousins swear there was a pirate ghost upstairs (I don't know how a pirate landed in Missouri…but there was a definite presence upstairs)

  36. Is it tomorrow, yet? I'm ready for the next snippet, please!
