#8Sunday: From Stolen Moments…a paper hussy!

StolenMoments600x900Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors. This week’s excerpt is from Stolen Moments, a romantic comedy, in which the hero is a romance author, and the heroine is his neglected wife. This is how she sees his writing:

He spent more time with Beverly Golightly than he did with her. The heroine of the series of novels he wrote, Beverly had become the other woman in their marriage, a fictitious one, but a rival all the same. And the irony was Mary Sue had encouraged him to create her. She’d pushed her husband into the arms of his paper mistress.

Sometimes Billy got so preoccupied with writing about sex they didn’t have sex. Other times, his story would turn him on, and he’d track her down in the kitchen and give her his hey-hey look. Well, Mary Sue didn’t accept any woman’s sloppy seconds, even if the hussy was just words on a page.

Had she only foreseen how things would turn out, she might not have been so supportive.

Stolen Moments is 99 cents on Amazon or free with Kindle Unlimited!

Stolen Moment’s 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?

Next week, I’ll shift gears, and present Longing, a new paranormal. Get a sneak peek here. Warning: scorching hot cover.
