December deals with the fall out of Tom’s words…Weekend Writing Warriors…#8sunday

Hey All! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the wonderful  Weekend Writing Warriors!  I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid shows December’s friend and bodyguard Damien trying to cheer her up about Tom.

“So listen… I’m sorry about that guy, We saw it on TV last night.”
“Oh well, it’s the story of my life. Girl passively stalks guy,Girl gets drunk and texts
traitorous talk show host, Boy thinks girl is vomitus.” December deadpanned. Damien
guffawed loudly despite himself and poked her lightly in the side, making her laugh.
“You’re too good for him anyway. The man has the ultimate poker face. I doubt he
even has emotions.”

December consoles her friend…Weekend WritingWarrior…#8sunday…10/5/2014

Hey All! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the wonderful  Weekend Writing Warriors!  I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid shows the scene where December consoles her friend and stylist,Terrence on his very recent heartbreak.

“Sugar pie, you can’t lay there all night. You can sulk just as good on the bed.” Terrence turned his face to the side and stared at December with the saddest brown eyes she’d ever seen.

“It’s more pathetic this way, so just kill me now because I can never face him again.”

“He didn’t seem to mind too much, I think he’s known for some time.”

“That’s what makes it worse.” he opined, turning his head away from her so she couldn’t see his tears. Tossing his jacket on the chair a few feet from her, she laid down next to him on the carpeted hotel floor and cuddled him close.

Weekend Writing Warrior’s blog hop #8sunday…Tom has a revelation…9/7/2014

Hey All! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the wonderful  Weekend Writing Warriors!  I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid shows the scene when Tom begins to realize that he wants to seek a deeper connection with December.

“December desperately wanted to wipe away the sadness lodged deeply in his eyes.  He smiled a crooked smile and gazed adoringly at her.

Tom had never been this open with anyone before but with December, he couldn’t help himself. He wanted to know everything about her, he wanted her to know everything about him.  And more than anything else, he wanted to know that she accepted him just as he was.

With no airs and graces, no fancy suits and polished lines, just Tom.  Slightly lonely, starved for affection, Tom. “

Tom and December meet face to face..Finally! #8sunday… Snippet #1…7/28/14

Hi Everyone! This is my first time doing the #8sunday with the Weekend Writing Warriors, which is very exciting! This is a snippet from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid. This scene is when the two main characters, Tom Elmswood and December Brown meet face to face for the first time. The book begins with one friend’s meddling that goes awry and this second attempt, by another friend, doesn’t seem to be going to well either:

She visibly shook herself from her stupor, and unconsciously started to unwind her sloppy plaits. A gorgeous man at your door, who wouldn’t want to try to salvage their appearance?

“Since you’re already here, come on in. Please.” Tom’s tentative smile widened, in relief at her invitation.

“I feel like a vampire. You’ve invited me in, there’s no going back.”

“That’s not a comforting thought in the least, Tom.” she retorted, dryly. Normally she’d have been guffawing like a maniac since he was obviously trying to alleviate the tension. Her dream guy was right in front of her, but all she wanted to do was smack someone.
