Weekend Writing Warrior – 1/4/15
Hello, friends! It’s a new year and we’re still here! Wooo hoo!
Here are 8 sentences from my upcoming re-release, Spring Chickens:
Their eyes met and held. Her lungs expanded. They threatened to explode all over the beautiful man standing in front of her if she didn’t get her autonomic system back on track. She forced air out through her parted lips and dragged more in through her nose. The scent of wood chips, milled grain, and fresh earth mingled with some kind of musky after-shave and tickled her nostrils.
“My aunt was in love with your uncle,” she blurted.
A tiny smile tugged at the corners of his mouth. “So I’ve heard.”
You don’t have to be a spring chicken to fall in love
Bram Hatchett thought he buried his heart with his wife, but when a big city beauty blows into town to dispose of the family farm, she captures everyone’s attention. Particularly his.
Lynne Prescott’s former marriage was marked by her husband’s infidelities and doomed by the secrets and lies he left in his wake. Disillusioned and adrift, she seeks refuge in the simplicity of small town life.
There are few secrets in Heartsfield, Arkansas, but when a few loose boards on a rickety old porch bring them together, not even the combined forces of nosy neighbors, disapproving children and a disturbing decrease in the poultry population can stymie the attraction between the handsome widower and the intriguing divorcee.
But Lynne and Bram are both old enough to know there are no guarantees in life.
Can they set the fears of their pasts aside and learn to trust their hearts just one more time?
