Hello again, fellow bibliophiles!

This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

This weekend is the last weekend of 2014, so I am giving you a big one...perhaps the biggest one of the year! Enjoy!

Today's snippet comes from Pianissimo.

Darryl and Corinne Richards purchase their first house. With Darryl’s army career coming to a close, they feel ready to settle down in Louisville, Kentucky. With impeccable timing, Darryl is sent on one final tour, leaving Corinne to live in this new house and new city alone.

Overwhelmed, Corinne becomes reclusive, living a quiet, boring life with her cats as she adjusts to her new surroundings. The problem is: someone or some thing does not want her life to be either quiet or boring. And then there’s the creepy piano in the basement…

There is more to that creepy, dilapidated piano and her new home than Corinne could ever imagine. Through highs and lows, twists and turns, she begins to understand that even the most softly played music is powerful – and that even soft realizations and quietly subtle changes can have a profound effect.

Quick background: Corinne has been sorting through some old pictures and papers she found in a box in the basement.

Her hand hit something hard. What was that? Corinne finally looked down into the box.

It was a book! She clutched it and brought it up onto the table. She carefully opened the front cover.

Agnes Walker 1907.

With gentle trepidation, Corinne turned the first page.

Hope you liked it! Happy reading!!!  :)

After reading the blurb I have a feeling that you just introduced the story's antagonist. I wonder how present Ms. Walker is going to be in the story. Great way to set up some tension.

BTW, Happy New Year, can't believe this is the last weekend of the year!

Very nice snippet. I'm intrigued by the book and how it might be connected to her troubles.

Hey great eight! You just bought a new house, might you have a piano in it, that helped to inspire this story? :) Have a wonderful New Year Lauren!
