This week has been going by fast for me. Not a whole lot to report either as the flu made its way throughout house, so I didn’t get to write as much as I wanted to since it hit me, too. I’m working on a blog post and hoping to have it up in the next few days. I’m moving along on my work in progress and should hit the half way mark either this weekend, or the start of next week. I have to say I really, really love writing this book. It’s pushing me out of my comfort zone, but it’s becoming a really strong story for that.
I guess it’s time for the snippet this week.
“Why did you leave this morning?”
“Chad, let’s not do this. Okay?”
“That’s not going to work.” He stepped and closed the space between them even more. “Talk to me Katie. Why did you leave? And what did you mean back there that you’re not who I need you to be?”
“Last night shouldn’t have happened. Things are too crazy in my life right now.” She crossed her arms across her chest, taking a deep breath like she was trying to relax her nerves. “I’m not made for what you want in the bedroom.”
I totally almost forgot to post today. I’ve been busy plotting with some friends on Chad and Katie’s story. I’ve filled my storybooking board all the way now and no more holes left to fill in. Now all I need to do is get this dang thing written and off to my critique partners, before sending it to my editor. I also found my photo inspirations for Chad and Katie.
This week I’ve been working on getting guest blogs for when Road to Recovery comes out. I’ve also found what I’m going to be using for a giveaway on release day. So, I’ve been super busy this past week. Well, that’s about it to report for this week.
Here’s something I wrote this week while working on Katie and Chad’s story.
Katie fumbled to find the knob for the cold water and twisted it all the way to the left. Ice cold water rushed across her body. She left it on for a moment hoping that it would drown out the heat that had crept into her at the thought of having Chad inside her again.
My web designer is working on a web site for me. I have to say she rocks! I saw the draft of it the other night and I just love it. I’ve let a few close friends see it as well and they all love it, too. She’s working on the final draft now and I can’t wait to show it once it’s finished.
her hip and pulled his
Here’s this weeks little snippet from the current story I’m writing called Healing His Wife’s Heart.
Natasha leaned a hip against his truck. He couldn’t miss how sadness crept into her eyes. Did she really want to go through with this, or was it too hard for her to think about it all as it still was for him? If he could, he’d take away the pain and make her whole again.
“Damn, I worried about that. I guess the sooner we re-file, the better,” she slipped her hands in her pockets and shifted her feet.
“Ok, I need you to listen to what I’m about to say. Actually, listen and don’t react. Do you think you can do that?”
“What the hell are you talking about, Chris?”
“I have a proposition for you.”
I’m starting something new on my blog. I’ve seen some other writers do it and thought it was a good idea. Every Wednesday I’ll be posting something from the book I’m working on. It will be just a little snippet. Here’s one of my favorites from Road to Recovery.
“You have no clue what you’re talking about,” she snapped.
“Don’t I?” He challenged, raising a brow.
“Ugh! You’re such a pig.” She pushed him and took off down the hall, his laughter trailing after her.
Kyle had gotten under her skin more than she wanted to admit. His cologne lingered on her scrubs, and she could still feel his arms around her. She’d almost given into the pull and leaned forward to kiss him. Kyle had been so close she could smell his Calvin Klein’s Obsession, and it screwed with her head. Her body ached to be in his arms again, to be so close to him there would be no way she could resist him if he moved to kiss her. Whoa! No, no, no, I can’t go there. I so need to find a man, and not one that works here.
