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
Topping off the week with a new novella for you, up for pre-order. I hope you will enjoy it.
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.”
