Snippet Sunday: At First Snowfall #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday #8Sunday

Welcome Back Everyone!

Today is Snippet #17 from my newly published story! I’m so excited to have you read it!

Today I’ll be sharing a snippet from my newly published story At First Snowfall.
 I thought I would take a break from my Dia de los Muertos ~ Day of the Dead and show you a glimpse into my new story for Christmas time. Hope you enjoy the snippet.

We’re jumping ahead a few paragraphs.

Adelaide realizes Victoria has the stone of Galant, which gives her power over others. She knows this isn’t good for Alexander and her, and most definitely not for the kingdom.  Alexander is arguing with his brother and finds out that their father is dead and by the hands of his brother and his own wife.

                                                                ***note this snippet is to fit a 8 sentence limit***


Victoria’s cackle proved to be the worst sound Adelaide had ever heard, she was pure evil, down to the bone.
Alexander’s face paled at the news of his father’s death. Princess Victoria laughed about it, and Eric looked pleased too.
This was just what the two wanted. They wanted Alexander to leave.
With the king dead, they could take over the kingdom. Alexander was right, they couldn’t leave.
They must stay and make sure Princess Victoria and Prince Eric didn’t get their grimy hands on the throne.


If they stay will Adelaide and her baby be in mortal danger?! Princess Victoria has the stone of Galant…I’d be worried.

Blurb: The Day of the Dead takes on a new meaning, when the dead don’t stay dead. Dr. Valentina Bellmonte, a cancer survivor, is the new coroner at Hope Memorial. Her faith is put to the test when a body arrives at the morgue drained of blood and the man responsible for the crime is sporting fangs. Could vampires be real?
Her good friend, Dr. Xander Carlisle seems to know the truth, but he’s unwilling to confide in her. He has a secret of his own and it’s not just how he feels about her, but something else entirely, something he’s forbidden to reveal.

  1. Yeah, it’d be so simple to just walk away, but he’s a better man than that. A better ruler than that. 🙂

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Right!? But he isn’t worried about how that puts him and everyone he loves around him in danger!

  2. I’m not sure it’s the right time to be brave and save the kingdom. They probably killed the king, they are not to be played lightly with.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:


  3. Frank Fisher says:

    Victoria’s cackle definitely hinted that she was evil. I hope she doesn’t take the throne. Nice eight!

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you…her cackle in my head is just so sinister. It really fits her character throughout the story.

  4. P.T. Wyant says:

    I’m curious to know the consequences of Eric and Victoria ruling the country? What would the repercussions be? What would make them be worse rulers than Alexander and Adelaide?

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      If Eric and Victoria ruled over Galant there definitely wont be time to smell the roses.

  5. I’m torn. I want them to stay and fight, but I want them to live and be happy together. Victoria and Eric are crazy. They are capable of anything. Great snippet. 🙂

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you. They definitely are crazy.

  6. I don’t think they can leave either. Those two could make your blood run cold.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Yes. There would be no way they could they are way too good.

  7. That woman is pure evil! Great snippet!

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Pure evil is right…..thanks!

  8. Wow, what despicable people – this snippet actually got me angry, which means you reached the emotional reader. Well done.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thank you. I’m happy I can hit a nerve so early in the story!

  9. Iris says:

    oh wow, quite a task ahead of them … Hope they don’t lose sight of their love for each other as they fight for “the throne”. Nice snippet.

    1. Cecilia Corona says:

      Thanks. We will see what happens.

  10. Wow, really a tangled situation and some tough challenges ahead for your characters. That cackle from Victoria really got to me! Great snippet…

  11. Jeff Tsuruoka says:

    Love the way you describe that cackle– it really sets the tone for everything that comes after it in the snippet.
