Weekend Writing Warrior – 5/3/15

Before I get to my work in progress, I just want to share a little news with you, my Warrior pals…

I have signed with agent Sara Megibow! I subbed Full Court Press, the battle of the sexes story I shared with you over the past few months, and she offered representation! We’re all official now, so I wanted to share it with you all, since you’ve been with that story from the start! Thank you all for your feedback!

Okay, now back to Play Dates! These are eight more lines from my new contemporary romance about a woman whose little niece helps her snag the man of her dreams. Our heroine, Monica, is calling to confirm her date with hot Saturdaddy, Colm Cleary.


“So this is a yes,” he said briskly. “I’m taking this as a yes, because you aren’t texting.”

“It’s a yes.”

Mel grabbed her arm and gave it a jiggle-squeeze of excitement. “He even sounds hot.”

She shot Mel a warning glance, but luckily there was a clatter and commotion on the other end of the line. After a bit of fumbling, Colm asked, “I’m sorry, did you say something?”

“Nothing…just, uh, it’s me and yes.”


That’s all I have for now. Be sure to check out all of the Weekend Writing Warrior posts here.

Happy Sunday!
