I’m baaaack! I haven’t done Weekend Writing Warriors in a while, but I’m back now with an excerpt from Stolen Moments, a romantic comedy, available on Amazon for just 99 cents (free with Kindle Unlimited).
What you need to know: In Stolen Moments, the hero is a romance writer. The heroine is his neglected wife. In this scene, she has just gotten home from work. Her husband is on the computer.
“Mr. McDermott came into the diner today,” she spoke to her husband’s back. “His house was broken into yesterday. The burglars got at least $1,000 in change he kept in a big water jug. Mr. McDermott says it must’ve weighed 200 pounds. The burglars would have had to roll it out.”
“I brought home frog entrails and chicken beaks for dinner.”
Stolen Moments blurb:
Is it crazy to be jealous of a fictional character?
While Mary Sue is proud of her construction-worker husband Billy’s new-found success as an author of spanking novels, she also finds herself resentful of Beverly Golightly, the fictional heroine who gets everything Mary Sue wants: her man’s undivided attention, lots of hot loving, and many delicious spankings.
But is Mary Sue’s jealousy any crazier than the plan she hatches to recapture her husband’s attention?
