Marie Sexton is once again hosting Saturday Snark, a chance for authors to share a little snark from one of their characters. My snark this week is taken from my recent novells, Galen and the Forest Lord. Enjoy!
Two shaggy predators crept closer while the others held back. One of the two, a particularly large example of wolfhood, growled, and Galen imagined it egging the other on, saying, "It's just one puny human! Kill it!"
In fact, the pack's primary female had said, "He doesn't look like a criminal to me. Go check!"
"Me go check?" the second wolf, a much smaller male, whined. "You're the Alpha Bi--"
The larger wolf cut him off with a particularly vicious snarl. "Don't you dare call me that!"
"B...b...but it's the customary title! Passed down through generations."
The she-wolf's long, pointed nose nearly touched the other wolf's, and she grrr'd deep and low. "It may be the customary title, but I swear, if you call me Bitch one more time..."
Oh that bitch definitely has bite. Had me chuckling. Great snarkReplyDelete
Thanks! I had fun writing her.ReplyDelete
This novella had some great snark all through it, staring from the blurb.ReplyDelete
What can I say? I just love snark, and appreciate Marie Sexton making it a cause for celebration each Saturday.ReplyDelete
