Howdy! Today I’m sharing six sentences from a WiP that’s been on my back burner for a while. It’s my second historical western which even has a title! MURPHY’S TREASURE A book set in the 19th century American west. We’ll see.
This couldn’t be the spot. The ground below hadn’t been disturbed. Centuries of rain and wind had compacted the earth into one big sandstone. If someone had buried something here, it would be a hell of a lot easier to dig up. It was his own stubborn pride that made him continue digging. She told him this was the wrong place, he just didn’t want to listen. He didn’t want her to be right–not again.
He should probably get used to it. Really. Once they get to the point when they figure out that “she’s always right” things go a lot smoother.
Have a great week!
