#SixSunday - A Girl & Her Power Tool


Happy Sunday Sixers! Thanks for stopping by.  I always appreciate the comments and encouragement. I look forward to hopping around to other blogs and reading what other talented authors have shared!  

I'm continuing with my YA Paranormal book, ONCE AND FOR ALL, the sequel to ONCE AGAIN, which is now available (links to the right), and was reviewed recently at Night Owl Reviews! ONCE AND FOR ALL follows Phoebe Campbell and Todd Miller as they encounter their own reincarnation mystery.

Phoebe is anything but "popular" and Todd's the stereotypical high school jock. Their worlds might never have collided had they not been paired to work together on a project for art class. As they work together, Todd and Phoebe begin to see past the preconceived notions they had about each other. But just as Phoebe is warming up to Todd (and by warming up, I mean responding to him the way a girl responds to a boy who kissed her the day before!), Todd reverts to his old ways... at least temporarily. Last week we saw Phoebe's reaction to Todd's flirtation with another girl, by withdrawing from him. This week, we see the two of them as they work after school on the same day as the "flirting incident". They are at Phoebe's house, preparing to cut out the largest part of their wooden sculpture. Todd wants to talk and apologize, and Phoebe tries to put him off by being "all business". 

"Phoebe, can we - "

I cut him off. "I've already freehanded the outline of the piece, so if you'll just hold the plywood still, I'll do the cutting with the handheld saw."

Removing the saw from the battery charger, I looked at him for the first time. I'm sorry was written all over his face, and I could tell he wanted to explain, but I wasn't in the mood to hear it.

The power tool in my hands deterred him from continuing.

Don't mess with a girl holding a power tool!

  1. Yep, don't mess with a girl holding a power tool. That was the exact thought I had before I even read it after the excerpt!

    Nice back and forth between Todd and Phoebe. :-)

  2. There are some times when a girl just needs to calm down and a guy just needs to shut up. Great exchange here.
