Want some publicity. Here, where we all have something in common, might be the best place to start.

(Prologue excerpt from my recent novel.)

The girl’s eyes opened. What was happening?

The room was packed with doctors, scientists, medical assistants and all of the like. Where was she? They were too calm for the occasion as one laid a middle and ring finger on the girl’s temple. It stayed there for a moment and then it lifted. The woman doctor who had done this stood straight and whispered to one of her assistants as another doctor, this time a man, touched her other temple as if to prove what the woman doctor had been saying. He focused on the girl’s eyes for a little while and waited as if he was unsure to agree with the woman.

Finally, the doctor lifted his hand, and nodded to the woman doctor. He said something to her, this time not a whisper and the girl realized she couldn’t hear. She tried to reach for her ear, but her wrists were caught on something. She looked down at her wrists and found them clamped tightly underneath a band of iron. Fear crept up her spine. Who was she?

She wiggled in her spot a couple times, more furiously each time until she was slamming her body against the hard medical table. She screamed, and a fuzzy sound reached her ears. The doctors and assistants had noticed her now and placed pressure on her limbs so she could not move. She screamed again and tears burned her eyelids. She needed to get out of here.
