Hot as Blazes: Imaginings

WWWHot as Blazes: Imaginings. On this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors, I’m continuing this week with a snippet from my newest release.

After some trouble in California, Jo Mercer’s pro surfing career has tanked. She has just arrived home at the oceanfront beach house where she grew up and runs into her brother’s best friend and her secret crush.

Ray is blown away by her unannounced return, but couldn’t be happier. In this scene, he’s left their by chance reunion on his way to a partial shift at a neighboring fire house south of his home station. The crew is having lunch and immediately teases him about having wet hair from his earlier surfing session. “Must’ve got laid,” another firefighter teased, “looks like he just showered. On to this week’s snippet.

He let their banter slide and eased onto an empty chair. He tossed some bills on the table for the grocery fund. They’d be feeding him dinner too.

“So?” the captain asked raising a bushy brow.

“Surfing, the sets were perfect.” He smiled as a sub sandwich slid in
front of him. Seeing Jo after five years was better than sex. Unless the sex happened to be with her. But that would be making love.

Something he’d only imagined―a million times.

A Twitter Book Pitch: Daunting or Fun?

RomanceWeeklyRomance Writer Weekly authors are sharing a Twitter pitch for most their most recent releases or work in process.  Daunting or Fun?

Readers probably aren’t aware, but authors “sell” their book or idea for a novel to a publisher, editor or agent using a sentence or two. It’s kinda like the descriptions you see about a movie on the cable guide screen.

For me, writing a pitch is akin to having a root canal. Nerve wracking and you never know if it will be a success. What one person might love, another will give you a blank stare. Here it goes for my most recent release, Hot as Blazes.
