Exerpt from my work in progress “Une Variante”

Along with editing Fire in the Woods, I’ve also stepped into a new genre for me. Une Variante is a paranormal set in the present day. Yeah, kind of an odd choice for me, but the idea hit me while driving a few months ago, and it’s been “calling me”. You know what I mean?

So here’s a random six-ish sentences. I scrolled to a random page, counted down five lives, and here you have it. In this scene, Jason and Amanda are returning home after their wedding. Enjoy!

(By the way… don’t look for paranormal here. There’s nothing paranormal in this scene.) :-)

“Don’t drop me!” Amanda said, clinging to her husband’s shoulders as he carried her up the walkway to their new home.

He propped her on one knee. “I’m trying not to.”

“I can walk you know.”

“Nope,” he said, fumbling with the keys. “I’m gonna carry you over the threshold if it kills me.”

“I’m more worried about it killing me.”

So, how do you like my quirky newlyweds?

Their honeymoon is about to take an unexpected twist

  1. I like the characters’ banter. Makes me want to spend more time with them. :)

    Cute. (In my version, he would have dropped her) :-P

  3. I giggled. This is cute. I really got a feel for each character and could see them. Well done!

  4. Does he slam her head on the doorjamb?

  5. I can see your humor shining through that scene. :)

    • Yeah, these two are very fun and extremely heartfelt and goofy. They’ve been a joy to write. I almost hate to put them through their little adventure so soo after wedded bliss.
