Weekend Writing Warrior – 8/2/15

Posted on Aug 2, 2015 by Maggie Wells   6 Comments | Posted in Blog

Hello, Warriors! The last month has been a whirlwind. Not only did I just spend five fabulous days at the Romance Writers of America national conference, but I wrote a book in 31 days before I left. Yep. That’s what a surprise deadline will do for you. I know I shared a little tidbit from Flip This Love (book #2 Coastal Heat series) before, but here’s another taste. Hope you enjoy it!

“Delaney—”

“I said no.” She kept her voice pitched low but coated in the sticky-sweet honey she was taught would soften even the harshest of blows. “Stay away from me, Harley Cade. You had your chance to make something happen and you blew it.”

Once again, he covered her hand with his. She tried to pull it away, but those thick, strong fingers wrapped her up tight. “Sweetheart, you weren’t ready for the chances I wanted to take.”

    Yum! Take the chance Delaney, take the chance!

    Only you could write a book in 31 days. And knowing you, I bet it’s completely awesome, as always!

    You are my heroine, Harley and Laney are my homies, and this story makes me ridiculously happy! 🙂

    A book in 31 days? Impressive! I once wrote a novella in 5 weeks, and it’s one of my favorite works, but that is absolutely my top speed.

    Oh, there are quite a few who can write faster than I do, but I was pretty impressed with myself. Been a while since I had to produce so much so quickly (and while working a full-time job) and it was good to know I can still sprint. Glad I don’t have to for the next one, but good to know. 🙂

    He might have a point. But then again, so does she. Two sides to every argument, right?

    Hmm, he just might have a good argument there! Enjoyed the excerpt…
