Stop trying to marry me off! weekend writing warriors

weekend writing warriors, wewriwabutton

So, I know you’ve seen this earlier. My newest release in steampunk Victorian romance is live. So for weekend writing warriors, I chose…well,  slightly over 8 lines from Vesta’s Clockwork Companions, but, I thought I’d share this short excerpt with you today anyway.


 (from Chapter one):

Vesta snorted and took up a brush to pull it through her hair. “Can you see Mrs. Colchester at a barn dance? I’m sure Nottingham parties are different. More like something out of Jane Austen.”

His steps approached the door. “You will be fine.”

She set the brush down, crossed to the door to open it, keeping behind its barrier. “You are the most optimistic man I know.”

With the removal of his coat, she saw, through the thin fabric of his white shirt, the scars on his forearm. The wounds he’d worked hard over the years to overcome and regain most of his strength. “And you are the most pessimistic girl.” Father’s blue eyes and the lines on his light cheeks showed his exhaustion. Even though he was tired, she still thought him handsome, and far too young to be worrying about her future. “Can you really be my daughter?”

“Pretend I’m not, and stop trying to marry me off.”

Mid-month update (ish)

Just wanted to stop in and say hi, everyone. I’m still here, getting things ready for good ole GDPR behind the scenes. (Why yes, it is driving me crazy!) I hope you all have had a good week; aside from a couple thunderstorms, we have. I finally *knock on wood* finished the rough draft to another historical romance I’ve been working on for several months, and I hope to get that out to a beta reader sometime between now and doomsday. Tied to that (probably) I’ve been resting in between chapter because carpal tunnel, again.

Winter-time, business, and about that newest release

Not saying we have it as bad as those of you getting snowed on but WOW did the temps drop this weekend! (And we’re already–slightly–warming back up).

And I finally got  Draft2Digital figured out. Their support was wonderful. 🙂 So if you’re an indie author and looking for a way to go “wide” I’d say give them a try.

Also, For those of you who don’t know, this worked well for my  new freebie short story ( No Such Thing as Dasher. ) Which, if you don’t know about it, its synopsis is as follows:Read More »Winter-time, business, and about that newest release
