Well, this is awkward. I have to worry about cross-book spoilers now.
But it is WIPpet Wednesday, and now that launch day business is done with, I should get back to it.
What is WIPpet Wednesday? It’s the day when a bunch of fun and fantastic writers working in a variety of genres post a snippet from a work in progress that relates in some way to the day’s date. We link back, we comment on each other’s stuff, a good time is had by all.
Feel free to jump in by posting on your own blog and linking!
Okay, for July 9, nine lines (on my screen in Scrivener, anyway) from the scene I was working on last night. I’m not going to identify the speaker, because then I’d have to explain things. But some of you already know Kel.
Just a draft, not edited, not great yet, needs to be filled in, yadda yadda…
Kel turned away. “No, I suppose it’s not. I just wanted you to know that I’m a little different. I wouldn’t mind trying the love thing some day. You don’t want that, and that’s okay. I like you. I’d like to be friends with you. That’s why I’m not trying to overcome your defenses with my irresistible charms.”
I snorted. “You’re adorable, but I think I’m safe.”
He stepped in front of me, stopping me short. A smile twitched at his lips. He raised one hand and brushed my hair back. My mouth went dry as he trailed a finger down my jaw line from ear to chin, barely grazing my skin. The meadow seemed to disappear, shrinking the world to the size of the space between us. His eyes filled with undisguised desire, and my body responded in kind.
Before I could say anything else, he walked away. “We should go,” he called over his shoulder.
“Be right there,” I whispered. He seemed to have taken my voice with him.
Not their first flirtation (she’s seen him naked… um, kind of), but I like this moment.
So there you go. I’m back. No guarantees that I’ll be here every week, and I’m going to have to spread out my visits this week because NO TIME, but this is a thing and I did it. So there.

And thanks as always to our host K L Schwengel, she of the flying monkeys and book that I wish was out already because I’m impatient. 🙂
‘s going good. Gotta go.
