Weekend Writing Warrior – 11/15/15
I messed up last week and forgot to set the time on my scheduled post, so I got bumped. 🙁 I posted later, but in case you missed it, I shared this little tidbit of news before I got started:
Big News! Remember the story I was sharing about the college football coach and the women’s basketball coach? It sold!!! FULL COURT PRESS (and two more in the Wolcott Warrior series) will be coming from Samhain Publishing in 2016-2017!
For now, here’s another taste of my current WIP, LOVE AND ROCKETS (Coastal Heat #3 – October 2016). This is the story of a rocket scientist who falls in love with a hardworking single mom and her brainy daughter.
“I did not, nor was I even thinking about touching your child in any way.”
“Maybe you’d be better off talking to a girl your own age.”
He stared down at her, trying to wrap his mind around the turn the evening had taken. While he and Darla had been a couple years apart in school and were never anything close to friends, he’d always been friendly when he saw her at The Pit. He said please and thank you, rarely asked for anything more demanding than an extra cup of sauce, and always over-tipped. In short, he had no Earthly idea why she took one look at him tonight and leaped directly to the worst possible conclusion. And he didn’t know what to say to her other than what he said every time he waved goodbye to her at the barbecue joint.
“I have to go. See you, Darla. Have a nice day.”
That’s all from me this week. Be sure to check out all of this weekend’s Weekend Writing Warrior posts!
