Weekend Writing Warrior – 9/6/15

Posted on Sep 6, 2015 by Maggie Wells   5 Comments | Posted in Blog

Hey gang! Guess what? It’s release month for Going Deep!

It sure has been a long time coming. I opened the original doc on 7/13/13. As of 9/15/15, it will be out in the world. To celebrate, I’ll be sharing new excerpts from the finished product!


“As a rule, it’s good form to compliment the woman to whom you are speaking.”

To his credit, Brian recovered quickly. His eyes narrowed. Cocking his head, he studied her like she was one of his elusive microorganisms swimming under a microscope. “I don’t bother much with rules. It’s too hard to remember them all.”

“Sad to see your cognitive skills haven’t improved.”

His smile turned rakish. She’d be damned if his eyes didn’t twinkle when he faced her dead-on. “No, but I’m still an ace when it comes to chemistry.”

Be sure to check out all of this weekend’s Weekend Writing Warrior posts!

Going Deep – To the heart of the story.

Making Headlines

Brooke Hastings almost won a Pulitzer Prize for her hard-hitting reportage. Now she’s sitting on the story of a lifetime and wants to prove she’s not a one-hit-wonder. But in order to get the world to take notice, she’ll need the help of the one person she loves to hate—Brian Dalton.

Brian Dalton stumbled into celebrity when he landed a show on the Earth Channel. But the hunky marine biologist never forgot the serious, studious boy who left Mobile a decade before. Now back in Alabama, he’s looking for the quiet life he always wanted and hoping for a chance with the girl he always loved. When Brooke asks him to help expose some of the lingering effects of the Gulf oil disaster, Brian jumps at the chance to help preserve the place both call home…

    I like it, clever dialog, but fits the characters and the scene so well. Best wishes with the release.

    I love the little Coastal Heat logo above the title, it’s so cute! How awesome is that?!?! I don’t know how you can keep track of everybody you’re writing about – hope you have a spreadsheet of some sort! I’d wish you a Happy Release Day but I’m not sure I could do it without turning into a 12-year-old and snickering. Yep, you’ve ruined me forever!(But in a good way!)

    I’d say it’s not that he can’t remember, but that he doesn’t want to waste the effort on ‘silly’ social rules.

    And congrats!
