It's Weekend Writing Warriors (WeWriWa), a new Sunday post inspired by the wildly successful Six Sentence Sunday, which ended last week. Many thanks to the admins at Six Sentence Sunday for such a great idea and activity. And thanks to the admins at WeWriWa for picking up the baton and organizing another way for all of us to stay connected.
Weekend Writing Warriors share an 8-sentence excerpt, and today I'm sharing from my VERY RECENTLY PUBLISHED young adult paranormal romance, ONCE AND FOR ALL. This is book 2 in the Sky Cove Series. Both books in the series are available at Amazon, B&N, and other retailers. (A complete list of links appears on the right sidebar.)
The opening of the "book blurb" says... What happens when 180 pounds of football star collides with 105 pounds of art geek? The following excerpt, from the prologue, show us that collision. It's December 30 in Sky Cove, Maine. It's cold and icy, and as Phoebe tries to walk in to the hardware store, Todd is barreling out. She falls on her tush, and looks up to see...
Todd Miller, with his designer jeans and expensive black coat.
"Uh, Sorry," he said, his eyes locked uncomfortably on mine, but not bothering to help me up.
Like I needed his help.
Making matters worse was the fact that he was so freaking cute. And yeah, I'd noticed that a long time ago. Unfortunately, every time he opened his mouth all the cuteness went away.
I pushed up, gaining my feet without slipping again on the ice. The stupid moron just stood there continuing to stare at me.
