Thank you, everyone, for stopping by my Snippet Sunday & Writing Warriors’ #8Sunday blog hop post. Today will be my third excerpt from my upcoming novella, Saying Goodbye. Right now, I’m looking at a October 15, 2015 release date. I don’t have a synopsis for the novel yet, but in a nutshell it is a paranormal love story/love triangle about a ghost who is trying to find a way to stay on earth to be with the love of his life. In doing so, he introduces her to a man that she might start having feelings for.
I’m noticing that some are disliking Michael. I hope the more we get into the story, and we see more of their relationship, how long they’ve been together, the type of people they are, where they are at in their relationship, etc. your opinions of him will change a bit. If not, that is okay.
The following snippet follows last week’s post. Michael and Erica are still discussing the party, and she is still procrastinating.
“But you don’t live with them,” she said, not at all helping her case. “I bet they won’t even notice we aren’t there.”
On that Halloween, Michael was a senior at the local university and majoring in business. His parents owned a small chain of pizza and sub shops spanning the North West corner of the state. He had split his senior year, taking only half the classes he would have normally taken that semester, and taking the other classes the next semester, so that he could help with his parents’ newest restaurant. Because he spent so much time at the restaurant, he had gotten his own apartment close to the new restaurant, so that he could walk home from the restaurant after they closed to clean up and crash or study.
“All of them may not, but I promised Kevin and Travis I would be there, so I have to show. Come on, Erica, it won’t be that bad.” They both knew it would be…for her at least. She loathed such situations and gatherings, and he knew it and only asked her to attend a few a year. She loved him more than she hated them, so she went to make him happy.
Thank you for stopping by. If you want to read more excerpts from other authors or if you want to join in the fun, stop by both blogs and peruse their sights.
Just a little heads up, my sci-fi/horror romance, Resistant, will be going on sale next month. If you are interested, the first chapter is on Goodreads and there is already a link on Goodreads for you to add the novel to your “to-read” list. The novel is currently with my beta readers, so please excuse any typos or inconsistencies. I hope to have all of that worked out before I go to print.
Before you go, I wanted to let all the audible subscribers know that my paranormal romance, Shifter, is available on audio at Audbile, Amazon, and iTunes.
