Guest Post by J. Meyers, author of Intangible

Happy Friday the 13th!  As much craziness that happens in my life, this is just another day for me :-)...  I hope...

Today, my guest is Ms. J. Meyers, who is here with a little sneak peek at her novel, Intangible.  I love doing sneak peeks because you get to taste a little of the writing for yourself! I hope you all will grab a copy for yourself and love it as much as I did...

If you missed my review of Intangible, you can catch that HERE.

Excerpt from Intangible
by J. Meyers

Luke whipped around to the sound of pounding feet behind him.
Luke’s eyes scoured the parking lot, but there was no sign of the other guy. Quinn came to a screeching halt feet from Luke, bent over with his hands on his knees and wheezed loudly. Luke clapped him on the shoulder a couple of times, and Quinn held up an index finger in a just-give-me-a-moment sign.
When he’d caught his breath, he stood up, and said, “Is everything okay? I heard you yelling. Oh god, this hurts.” He squeezed his right side. “Why do people run for fun?”
“Yeah, it’s fine. Just some guy bothering Gloria. Sort of.”
“Seriously. What could possibly be fun about running?” Quinn glanced over at Gloria as she pulled her car out of the parking lot and onto the street heading north. He looked up at Luke again. “What do you mean sort of?”
Luke shook his head. “I don’t know. It was just...strange, I guess.” He watched Gloria’s taillights disappear. “But he’s gone now.” He looked at Quinn again and smiled. “How far did you run?”
“Three and a half blocks. And running sucks, I’m telling you. I’ll probably have shin splints tomorrow.”
“I don’t know. Sounds like you need to get in shape. You’re whimpering like a total wuss.”
“I am a total wuss, and intend to stay that way. You jock-types think every problem is solved by exercise. Not all of us want to be like you, you know.”
Luke laughed and clapped Quinn on the back. “Well, thanks for coming to the rescue.” Luke looked at Quinn for a moment. “So you heard me yelling from almost four blocks away? Really? Wow.” Luke nodded. “You have dog hearing?”
Quinn half shrugged and shook his head. “You’re just exceptionally loud when you’re squealing ‘Gloria! Gloria! Oh, help! Gloria!’ It was really quite embarrassing,” Quinn said. “I mean for you. I just came to stop you from humiliating yourself any further.”
“Helpful,” Luke said. “And thanks.”

Love it!  Thanks so much J!
