Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.



Hi, everyone. I hope you are all well, and have had (or are looking forward to) a nice holiday. I’ve been down since Thanksgiving with excruciating back pain and so that put a stop to everything for the whole month. I couldn’t sit at the computer for more than a few minutes without ending up in agony. 🙁 It was awful. What did I do to it? Read More »Merry Christmas and news #BloggersBlast #newrelease #timetravel

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.

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.”

I hope you all had a lovely week–and a fine Imbolc, if you celebrate it (off to see the Groundhog? ;). I’ve been doing more catching up but I think all’s settling back into order. That being the case, I thought I’d take a minute out and toss a post up for this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors. Speaking of Imbolc/Groundhog day, I thought this following snippet would be appropriate. Why? Read More »A lucky guy and a poor girl… #8sunday #Medievalromance Weekend Writing Warriors #SundaySnippet
