Happy Sunday Sixers! Thanks for stopping by. It's been several weeks since I participated, and I'm really happy to be back! 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.
In this snippet, Todd is making an attempt at expressing his feelings to Phoebe. Earlier in the story, she'd asked him not to kiss her again. It was her own form of self-preservation, since she knew a relationship between them would never work. However, they're both finding it somewhat difficult to keep their distance!
"I've tried to put aside what I feel, and I can't."
He reached toward me, taking my shaking hands in his.
"I told you I wouldn't kiss you again, and I won't, as long as you don't want me to." He angled his head, forcing me to look at him. "I'm hoping you'll change your mind."
