Well, I’m half way through this blog tour. Whew! This is exhausting!
In honor of the Release of “For the Lost of Christmas” today I’m serving up a snippet from “Connect the Dots.” Enjoy! (This is from Random page # 27)
“Why the frig do you put up with me? I can be such an ass.”
I bit back a smile, letting the silence linger.
He laughed and turned around. “That was your cue to say ‘no Jack, you’re not an ass at all’.”
“Well, since we’re all being honest…”
Jack sucked in his cheek. “Okay, I deserved that. I was a total idiot. I admit it.” He glided his arms around my shoulders, and pulled me toward his chest. “Thanks for trying to stop me, even though I was too dumb to listen.” He shook his head. “I’m so glad I didn’t go through with it.”

From my WIP, Summer at the Crossroads:
At two o’clock, Mikhail arrived at the State Department. Two security guards escorted him to Kathryn’s office, where she was pacing the floor.
Mikhail took a few moments to study her office. This was his first visit in their ten years together. He noted the lack of windows and the drably painted walls typical of so many American federal office buildings. Her gunpowder gray metal desk, file cabinets, and bookshelves all looked to be at least thirty years old.
And Americans think Soviet architecture and décor were institutional and impersonal? he thought sarcastically.
But Kathryn had made the room feel bright and cheery by covering the dull beige walls with colorful artwork of natural landscapes and photographs of the two of them and their families.
He turned to her and smiled. “Shall we sit down?”
“How did the meeting go?” Kathryn asked, squeezing a pen so tightly Mikhail was sure it would snap.
Great characters. Thanks. I don’t think everyone’s “gotten” the idea that I’m giving them a chance to market themselves. 🙂
Oh, now I want to read the rest. Very sneaky move.
