Mercy Bound #2 Chapter One Sneak Peak

I promised a sneak peek of chapter one of the next Mercy Cross book if my Facebook page reached 30 likes. Mission accomplished. Here's the first draft. Enjoy!

Mercy Bound #2 Chapter One
I was in the upstairs bathroom listening to my Dead Milkmen mixed tape, brushing my teeth and shaking my ass to the beat of Punk Rock Girl when I got The Call. Not by the Lord or anything like that.

I've set up my author page and linked my blog to the site, and because I don't think you've suffered enough, I even uploaded my picture. My real picture. A picture that is of me. For those of you who have never met me (and some of you who have), no, I am not a man.…
