Kelly took a deep breath and pushed the plug into the socket. For a moment nothing happened and Kelly thought the machine was broken and then there was a click, a thud and a whirling noise and the machine began to shake.
Kelly stood up and went to watch the machine. She expected to see it sort seeds, or something like that, but she saw nothing at all. What she did notice was a wonderful smell. She inhaled deeply. It reminded her of her grandmother's kitchen. She took another deep breath.
That is what it smelled like! She looked over the machine to see if she could find the source of the smell (her stomach was making gurgling noises and her mouth was watering at the smell: she realised she was hungry!) but she couldn't see anything.
The machine shuddered and made a noise that sounded a little bit like a crow playing the trombone, it shuddered again and then hiccoughed and stopped doing anything. Oh, Kelly thought. I've broken it.
There was another banging noise. This time it was coming from the door.
As usual, I started with the freewrite prompt and used themostdangerouswritingapp.com to write the first five minutes (and then popped it into google docs to check for errors and tidy it up a bit):
9 tales of MURDER from some of your favourite STEEM writers!
Check out the trailer for the book!
I have a story in it called The Still Blood-Soaked Path
A YouTube documentary film-maker visits a remote island to investigate the horrific murder of a young woman, and the subsequent suicide of her killer almost thirty years ago. But was the young lover really responsible for the brutal slaying of his girlfriend? And if not who was?
I had a comment left on one of my freewrites and I have to say, it made my day!
“Hey I got the book and want to tell you how much I enjoyed your story! Loved the twist at the end… you somehow nearly always manage to produce an unexpected twist... Love the care you take with your characters, intertwining them.” @owasco
Voices In The Darkness is now ALSO available as a paperback!
If you want a taster of what is in the book, the video below shows me reading the first 900 words, or so, of my story, The Tell-Tale Dead
