Moments, a collection of short stories and poetry by Harmony Kent


Hello, everyone, and welcome to my 4Wills Publishing book blast release tour. Today, I’m celebrating the release of my eighth book! Moments is a collection of short stories and poetry and brings together much of my imagination that has been scattered around for a while, lols. On each of today’s seven posts, you will find a different book excerpt … enjoy!

About the book

Come.
Take a moment to delve into tales from the dark side, have fun with fantasy, dabble in dystopia, and court danger in a little science fiction.
These tales touch upon death, grieving, war, fresh starts, hope, courage, change, choices, and encouragement.
And then, after all that, you’ll find the poems.
From the lonely echoes of an empty house to the soaring heights of unexpected love and joy and learning to live as free as clouds and water.
For each of us, a moment encompasses a lifetime and, yet, passes in but the blink of an eye. In but a moment, everything can change. And in this very moment, life beckons in all its potentiality.
When the shadows fall, what will you do?

Excerpt

(From The Passenger)
As I approached a tight bend, I slowed the car and changed down to fourth gear. A dark bundle in the middle of the road had me pressing the brake harder, and I held my breath. Was it a body? I brought the car to a stop just a couple of feet from the … whatever it was, and let out a shaky breath.
Should I get out of the car? Was it somebody hurt? Dead? Nerves had my fingers tapping on the steering wheel while I looked all around for signs of life or any nearby dwellings. Nothing but the fields and me, though.
It seemed to take hours for me to make a decision, but in reality it could only have been a few seconds. Finally, I resolved to go and check it out. After all, I’d never forgive myself if I just drove around the bundle and later heard on the news that somebody had died of exposure or something in the middle of nowhere.
My breath frosted the air as I walked over to the thing and knelt down. A relieved sigh brushed my lips when I found it to be a refuse sack full of innocuous rubbish. Shoulders hunched, I made my way back to the car and frowned to see my door open. Had I forgotten to close it? Annoyed, I shook my head at my forgetfulness and blamed it on being so tired and jittery. Headlights from behind lit the tarmac, and I hurried back to the car, worried about being vulnerable on this deserted road.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
