Tom has to deal with the fall out of his words … Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday…

Hey guys! I can’t believe its Sunday already and we’re 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 Tom’s lament about the whole talk show disaster with December Brown.

Tom couldn’t help himself; he kept switching channels to hear more opinions about
the ‘event’. He wanted to murder Trace. Every journalist at tonight’s award show would be asking him about December and her text. The media made him out to be dispassionate and uninterested, which made him feel like the scum of the earth on top of it all. He’d never even heard of the woman before last night, why was this happening to him?

Damn that Trace Randall.

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.

Clarissa tries to make amends… #8sunday… Snippet #3…8/10/14

Hi Everyone! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the Weekend Writing Warriors! I really enjoyed it the other weekend.  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’s best friend and agent tries to make up for her part in the failed love match.

  “Yes, Clarissa? What is it?” She kept her voice cold.

  “You can’t stay mad at me forever, you know.” Her best friend said anxiously.

  “Well I’m just going to have to give it a good ol’ college try, now won’t I?”

  “I’m sorry, okay? I shouldn’t have trusted Trace to handle that with tact and subtlety. It was my fault. Don’t blame Terrence.” Clarissa bleated.

  “I didn’t. I knew it was you and that butthead from the start.”

Tom confides in December! #8sunday… Snippet #2…8/3/14

Hi Everyone! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the Weekend Writing Warriors! I really enjoyed it last weekend. The feedback was great and I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid. This scene shows the two main characters, Tom Elmswood and December Brown getting to know each other better when Tom confides in her about his rocky relationship with his mother.

“I saw her twice a year for school holidays, where she’d take me to our husband-hunting mother/son bonding lunch date. Could you really get that close in that sort of situation?”

“Husband hunting? Were you the lure?” December asked, setting the hot drink out in front of him.

“More of a scout, really. To this day, whenever I enter a restaurant I scan the room for wedding bands, and suitable suitors. It’s actually very embarrassing. Checking out older men as marriage prospects…sort of makes business meetings quite awkward.” Tom explained, smirking.
