Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors. Here’s a snippet from LICK, my NA out 1st July, now up for pre-order on Amazon. If you’re unfamiliar with the storyline, here’s the quickie blurb….
Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hang-over to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man beside her, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
Now, let it be noted, I have broken the 8 sentences rule because some of these sentences are teeny tiny. Normally I don’t let that throw me into some sort of wild west chaotic state of mind where sentence count no longer matters and anarchy rules. But this brief bit doesn’t work any shorter. (To the powers that be, apologies.) Here is David, our hero, facing off with Mal, the drummer from his band, over the situation regarding his impromptu Vegas wedding. Enjoy.
“I feel your manpain, bro. Really, I do. I mean, all you wanted was a girl that wouldn’t kiss your ass for once and now you’re pissed at her for the same damn reason. It’s complicated, right?”
“Fuck you. Leave it alone, Mal. It’s done.” My husband huffed out a breath. “Anyway, she’s the one who wanted the fucking divorce. Why aren’t you giving her the third degree, huh?”
With a dramatic sigh, Mal flung out his arms. “Because she’s really busy hiding around the corner, listening. I can’t disturb her now.”
