Everybody Reads YA ~ Evil Eyes
Happy “Everybody Reads YA” Sunday! Today I’m sharing an excerpt from my YA psychological thriller: Evil Eyes. Stalkers can appear in the most unusual or ordinary places, especially when you aren’t expecting one.
Christine Zephyr puts the keys to her mom’s Volkswagen Beetle in the visor, shoves her bag under the seat, and casts a worried glance at the three small white boxes on the passenger seat.
These started appearing a few days ago, balanced on the ledge of her bedroom window. She’d called the police, but couldn’t turn them in, until today. Now, she has to ask her friends’ advice before going to the police again.
“It’s not happening.” She cups her belly, feeling the tiny bump there, proving that she really is four months pregnant. “There’s so much that I have to tell them, especially how this isn’t the biggest mistake of my life.” Her smile is soft, loving. “Oh, Maia, my perfect little angel. I know that you’re a girl, even though everyone will say I can’t, but I just know you are. Jason already loves you as much as I do.”
About the Author
Born and raised in Southern California’s Los Angeles basin, K.C. Sprayberry spent years traveling the United States and Europe while in the Air Force before settling in northwest Georgia. A new empty nester with her husband of more than twenty years, she spends her days figuring out new ways to torment her characters and coming up with innovative tales from the South and beyond.
She’s a multi-genre author who comes up with ideas from the strangest sources. Some of her short stories have appeared in anthologies, others in magazines.
Lisa is so ready for a break from the grueling first semester of college. Along with five other friends, she returns to Landry, and hopes to have nothing but fun. Within days, one of the group is the victim of a vindictive stalker, and Lisa herself is now in the man's sights. No matter what she does, she can't shake this person.
Fred has a little problem, but he figures he can take care of it himself, if he achieves fame with his folk rock band, Olney-Oak Lane Sounds. Then he happens to see this beautiful woman, who turns out to be just like every other woman he's met. He takes care of her, and is immediately drawn to Lisa. No one will get between Fred and Lisa, absolutely no one.
On Christmas Eve, Lisa has to fight for her life and sanity after Fred kidnaps her. She turns out to be very different from the other women, in a way he never figured.
