Okay, so Frankie Diane and her peppy persuasive ways convinced me to participate in the #NoKissBlogFest. Writers all over the blogosphere are posting their favorite "almost" kisses from movies, television, books or from their own Works In Progress. Visit Frankie's blog to discover links to more non-kisses.
The Twitterverse weighed in on what they wanted to see, so I'm taking this opportunity to give the teensiest glimpse of my MC from HOURGLASS, Emerson, and the feller she wishes belonged to her, Michael. She's just been given some shocking news, and she's torn between making him a soprano and throwing herself into his arms. I wish I could give you more of the before and after cookies, because Em's quite a corker and she gives Michael a run for his money. But Summer 2011 will come soon enough, right?
This post is up for a limited run only (Note: The scene has now been removed! But I left a little taste!). Here goes:
I’ve never touched alcohol – doesn’t mix too well with pharmaceuticals – but I knew at that moment what it must to feel like to be drunk. The only thing I could hear was the sound of both of us gasping for air. Everything in my world shifted and I knew I would trade every breath I’d ever taken for more of him. In a heartbeat.
That's it! I feel like such a tease. I kinda like it.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'll be announcing the winner of my BEAUTIFUL CREATURES giveaway and starting a new contest on Monday!
