Lori Pescatore: Digital Writer Spotlight

bookshelf.jpgDebut novelist Lori Pescatore chose one community writing site to promote her work.  Follow this link to read her work at Off the Bookshelf.

Founder Scott Weisenthal praised her work: “Pescatore’s first novel, Human Blend, is a fantasy/science fiction/ romance novel that has received four and five star reviews in its early release. The book is ‘filled with rich and unique characters that take the reader on a journey that will unearth ancient secrets.’ The writing is bold and creative and makes the reader never want to put the book down.”

Welcome to eBookNewser’s Digital Writer Spotlight feature. We’ve launched this feature to recognize the established and emerging voices within online communities. On a regular basis, we will feature hand-picked reading recommendations from community leaders at writing sites–introducing readers to the world of socially networked fiction. If you want to nominate a writing community, email eBookNewser with your recommendation.

Here’s a brief excerpt from Human Blend:

The doctor did a check of Julie’s vital signs. Her pupils were dilated, her heart rate was rapid, and her breathing was shallow. If this were a normal patient, he would hook them up to an IV immediately. He decided to follow protocol. He had a line strung and ready in minutes.

He attempted to insert a starter line into Julie’s arm, and was taken aback at what was happening. Each time he inserted the needle, it was pushed right back out and the skin resealed.

“Incredible,” he breathed, after several attempts. Even his tries to take a sampling of her blood proved impossible. He was left with only one thought: “What are you?”
