Featured Author Excerpt: Waking Up Dead by Margo Bond Collins

I do love to find new authors. We have Margo Bond Collins as a guest today, giving us an excerpt into her new novel, Waking Up Dead

 

3D Waking up Dead

 

“Hey,” I said, hurrying after the woman. “Wait up.”

“I know you’re not talking to me,” she said. She stared straight ahead and pushed her cart

down the middle of the aisle toward housewares.

“I am talking to you. Look. I know this is really weird, but I need your help.”

“Well, I’m not talking to you. I don’t know what your problem is, but you can take it

somewhere else.”

I wanted to reach out and grab her cart, to make her stop and talk to me, but of course I

couldn’t. Which gave me an idea.

I scurried out in front of her, planting myself in her path.

“Move,” she said.

“Not until you hear me out. Please?”

She moved her cart to the left. I stepped out to intercept her. She moved to the right. So

“You got some kind of death wish or something?” she asked.

I laughed and shook my head. “If only you knew.”

“I’ve got no time for this,” she said. And she slammed into me with her shopping cart.

At least, that’s what she planned to do.

The shopping cart, however, slid right through me. When it stopped, the basket had sliced

cleanly through my midsection. The bottom rack merged with my ankles. From my perspective,

it looked like two perfectly solid objects–me and the shopping cart–had melted together. I don’t

know what she saw.

Whatever it was, it wasn’t good.

The woman’s eyes widened, then rolled up into her head as she slumped to the ground in

a dead faint.

I bent down to try to wake her up, but no matter how hard I concentrated on making

contact, I couldn’t even touch her.

I hate being a ghost.
